Is anyone else still reeling with feels after binging season three of Stranger Things, which is pretty much what we did for the Fourth of July this year? Holy. Cow. I can't even. First of all, the series was more Totally Eighties! than ever, which I loved. I loved Max and Eleven becoming friends, the gruesome gore of the season, Hopper trying to deal with parenthood and his and Joyce's relationship. There are some things I didn't love, of course, but I felt like it was a really good season.
My teen and I are huge fans of madeleines. The kid loves them half-dipped in chocolate but I enjoy them plain, just as they are. Since I avoid sugar most of the time I was super excited to see this low-carb recipe for madeleins at KetoDietBlog. As soon as I get a good pan to make them in, I'm definitely going to try it. This recipe is for a buttery, vanilla-y flavor that I can't wait to try with my London fog!
When it's that time of the month (I call it Zuul's visit), things can get tricky. Sometimes the pain is so terrible I feel like I can't do anything, but working from home means you work through it, right? At least you can do it with a heating pad and no shoes or bra on if you like. Sometimes having a period throws everything off; anyone who's tried primitive camping on your menstrual cycle can attest to that!
If you've always wanted to hear how Dead & Co. got started, you should definitely check ou tthis video of John Mayer playing with Bob Weir for the first time on the Late Show. It's a great performance, but it's also a piece of the Dead's history. Mayer seems to be the longest running stand-in after Garcia shuffled off this mortal coil of dancing bears in 1995 and perhaps he'll be around much longer, too.
Nature bathing, nature therapy, time outside, outdoor fix... whatever you call it, spending time outside is good for you. There's a reason why people love to go camping, hiking and boating. Even though outdoor adventures can be exhausting, it's a good thing because it's healthy for many people. Being outside has been found to be helpful in preventing or treating everything from depression to obesity to anxiety and immune health.
Have you ever stopped to consider all of the crimes Peter Griffin is guilty of committing throughout his life? If we added them all up, the idiot would truly be locked away for a long time, assuming Lois's rich father didn't bail him out (he wouldn't), or Joe's cop friends didn't pull strings for him (unlikely).
Humans are no longer the masters of flight! (Okay, birds and bats were really the masters of flight anyway, not us, but we're talking animals who use means beyond their own biology to fly!) Remember the movie Epic where everyone rides birds or bugs around to fly? Apparently weasels do the same thing. The next thing we know, they'll be wearing acorn helmets!
My teen is a big fan of thrift store makeovers and they love to turn things they found into something totally new. Many of the makeover videos we watch just turn items into updated versions of themselves--new paint and a new look, but not a new purpose. That's completely fine, but I really like the ones where people find entirely new uses for thrift store finds!
Generally I'm not a big fan of the word amazing, but these flowers truly amaze me. They look just like hummingbirds and I can't believe it! Also known as green birdflowers, they look like rows and rows of the tiny birds, making me wonder what exactly nature is playing at. Are we all really just copies of plants somewhere on the planet? Come on, Mother Nature, what gives!
Pizza and spaghetti sound so yummy right now, although after all of the spring fish fries I now have fish and spaghetti on the brain! Weird, I know. I need to go to White Center Pizza for my fix. They have everything I want when I'm craving Italian, from lasagna to manicotti, and they even have chicken and ribs for my partner who would rather have that kind of fare.
