Fascinating Finds

Friday, September 18, 2020

This weekend we'll be spending all weekend waiting for my brother Alex and my sister-in-law Alex to arrive on Sunday. They are staying the night here with us Sunday, and then we'll all caravan up to West Virginia on Monday. We're headed there for the Alexes' baby shower!  

I also have some exciting news coming Monday! Stay tuned. 

Here's what I have for you this week: 

- With fall comes (allegedly!) cooler weather. Some of our favorite recipes that are perfect for fall are brown butter sauce (good on anything, not just ravioli), this sheet pan dinner, and these pumpkin muffins

- Venus has never been my favorite planet (that designation goes to Jupiter), but after I started teaching the Ray Bradbury short story "All Summer in a Day" which takes place on Venus, I've always been drawn to stories about that planet. Astronomers recently reported that there might be a sign of life on Venus.

- I have to admit, I have literally NEVER listened to a podcast until this week. I am not really an auditory learner, so I never thought podcasts would be for me. But my friend Drew (one of my best friend's, Sarah, husband who shot our beautiful wedding video) and his friend Jake started a podcast all about movies, and it's great! Check out Reel Takes with Drew and Jake

- The novels shortlisted for the prestigious Booker Prize were announced Tuesday. Four of the six are from first-time writers, and four are from women. 

- The Coronavirus has officially reached its arms of destruction into the holiday season. 

Some posts you may have missed:

- When it comes to home decor, trust your taste.

- Quick ways to make your home look tidy.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
