Welcome to this weekly series of thoughts/musings/things-on-the-internet that have inspired me – for better or for worse.
The last couple of weeks have been heavy. And if we’re being honest, the last two weeks have felt like an entire year. It feels like so much has changed, but really it’s only been about 10 days since this side of the world has turned upside down.
Also, did we all just miss that this week was the start of Spring? It’s nice to see the sun out longer, and promise of warmer weather!
Most of the week was spent on adjusting to a new normal, settling into a new routine. And trying my hardest to not get distracted by the hourly breaking news updates, extreme volatility on the stock markets, and keeping up with the umpteen amount of press conferences that are being held daily! (or maybe that was just me?)
The week started out with the realization, that this new normal is here to stay and it ended with the resolution, to try and use this opportunity, to slow down, move away from the hustle, and focus on efficiency.
But also, to do the things I said I don’t have time for, like reading a bajillion books that don’t have to do with learning something new and to experiment with baking bread at home.
- In the spirit of experimentation, this weekend I cut my own hair – using this video from Pick Up Limes!
- I started my own sourdough starter using this guide from the Kitchn
- If you’re also looking to bake, I posted the recipe for these Raspberry Cream Cheese Hand Pies, which we devoured all too quickly.
- Binged watched Love is Blind (on which I have many thoughts – if anyone wants to discuss. Like, why are they still all conventionally attractive? Why is there such little diversity?)
- And if you’re looking for some optimism in our current dire states, this article offers some hope. That it might not be a full 18 months before things end up “normal”.
Stay home, stay sane, and please wash your hands. Until next week!
