My favorite finds from around the web:
• The life-changing work of making dinner. “Still, every afternoon when the sun starts to cast its thin winter shadows on the snow and my kids come tromping in from the bus, I have found comfort in that movement toward the kitchen. In the daily work of fixing dinner.”
• Long overdue: why public libraries are finally eliminating the late-return fine. “Now some libraries are deciding that the money isn’t worth the hassle—not only that, but that fining patrons works against everything that public libraries ought to stand for.”
• You’ll outgrow IKEA at this age. Real Simple shares when major home retailers expect you to age out.
News news news!
And my family has a move in process this weekend. (Yes, we will be closer to the library.)
On the blog:
Two years ago: Back to the beginning. “Being dissatisfied with where you are isn’t going fix anything. But admitting that you have some gaps to fill in—that might get you somewhere.”
Three years ago: Let’s talk about highly sensitive people.
Four years ago: Maybe I should read less.
Five years ago: Dressing for the dreary days of winter.
Have a great weekend!
