Links I love

Happy weekend, readers! I hope you have something to look forward to these next few days. I plan to spend some time outdoors and finally get all the houseplants I recently moved indoors settled into their new spaces for the winter.

    Congratulations on Don’t Overthink It!

    And I was so happy to see you loved Secondhand Lions. It’s such a great (and yet somehow unknown) movie!

    • Julia says:

      Oh, the great family memories of watching that movie together over and over when my now adult boys were young! I hadn’t thought about Second Hand Lions in years! SO Good!

    Have you ever had a latte made with hot cinnamon spice tea? Barnes & Noble has them on their seasonal cafe menu right now.

    I am considering relocating some outside plants indoors for the winter…is there anything I need to know about settling them indoors? I live three floors up, but for some reason my brain is still weird about bringing in bugs 🙂 I did bring a gecko in once…

    • Anne says:

      A gecko?! I hose mine down before bringing them in, and typically google the particulars of each plant. (I only have a handful of varieties I move outdoors so it’s not as big a chore as it may sound like.)

    I love the tea-making post! Tea lovers should check out Upton Tea Imports. They have an amazing assortment of teas and publish a delightful newsletter several times a year, featuring stories from the history of the tea trade.

    Congrats, Anne!

    Regarding tea, I’m English and have spent YEARS trying to get my husband to understand that when you make a Brit a cuppa, you’re not just offering them tea. You’re offering them a hug, or respite from the cruel world, or medicine, or just something to do…the list goes on. We drink tea when it’s hot to cool us down and tea when it’s cold to warm us up (don’t ask…it works!), and even though I now live in the US, I still have to order my super strong builder’s tea from Amazon (Yorkshire Gold) to keep me going!

    • Adrienne says:

      So true! My mother grew up in London, and she says the British solution to almost any problem is to start by brewing a pot of tea!

    for folks wanting to support books in prisons, Prison Book Program, in Quincy MA, has an ongoing Amazon list with the most popular requests from prisoners.

    I read the Halloween article nodding my head….”oh this is cute but not so bad.” And then the end. I’m still sobbing.
