What are you up to this weekend? We’ve had three winter storms in eight days here, but this weekend the temps are finally on the rise and I’m hopeful our streets and sidewalks will be less icy by Monday. We have it easy in comparison to those suffering mightily in the wake of this week’s winter storms. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, truly.
I hope you have something to look forward to this weekend, and that you enjoy browsing these interesting reads and good things to put you in that weekend frame of mind.
My favorite finds from around the web:

- ‘I get better sleep’: the people who quit social media. Their stories are quite compelling.
