I know the world is bruised and bleeding, and though it is important not to ignore its pain, it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence.
What are you doing this weekend? Seattle schools are on mid-winter break, and I’m only a tiny bit envious (i.e. positively green) of those who are headed to warmer climes. Whether you need to while away some time in an airport or practice hygge at home, here are a few links from around the web that have caught my eye in the past few weeks.
The Grandeur and Limits of Science: On Being is always a bright spot in my week, however this episode is particularly beautiful. So much so, that I’ve saved it to listen to again.
How to Celebrate President’s Day: Via Austin Kleon. I am going to try and do every single one of these things.
Parmesan Broth with Kale and White Beans: This soup kind of blew my mind. You can find little tubs of Parmesan rinds near the Murray’s cheese counter at the Greenwood Fred Meyer, though I’m sure there are many places in Seattle that carry them.
DIY Finger Knitted Scarf: I’m keeping this idea in my back pocket, should I need something to occupy the children (and okay, fine, myself too) during mid-winter break.
Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls: Love this. I don’t actually have a copy yet, but it’s on the short list of Books I Need.
