Fascinating Finds

Friday, October 16, 2020

We started this week with temperatures in the low 80s, and we will finish it with temperatures in the 60s. After several false starts, it seems that fall may really be here (maybe? yes?), and I, for one, am ready. We don't have much going on this weekend, but sometimes that's just fine. It shouldn't be rainy, so perhaps we'll get to have a little campfire in the backyard. I hope that you also have a great weekend! 

Here are some cool things I've found this week:

- Have you felt more tired, worn out, or just at the end of your rope since the pandemic started? Chances are, if you're a person, you have. Here's an article that explains why you might be feeling awful. 

"Our culture is very solution-oriented, which is a good way of thinking for many things. ... It's partly responsible for getting a man on the moon and a rover on Mars and all the things we've done in this country that are wonderful. But it's a very destructive way of thinking when you're faced with a problem that has no solution, at least for a while." 

- We went to an orchard about an hour away from home last weekend and picked a bunch of apples. A bunch is not really a specific term, so let me tell you that what we got specifically was a half bushel. That is a LOT of apples. We gave some away and have been eating them daily, and we still have two huge bowls overflowing. I have been looking up ways to turn our apples into delicious treats, and I plan to make a variation of these! (Except I will use store-bought dough. Let's be real.) Hopefully they will turn out pretty well. I'm looking forward to pairing them with this delicious (and easy!) fall mimosa that we tried last weekend. (YUM!) 

- My friend Maggie sent me a link to these boots, and I just love them! Wouldn't they be perfect for fall? 

- If you are looking for a dark-type show for October and are into true crime, may I suggest Murder Maps on Netflix? I forget where I heard about this, but Joe and I watched and loved it! 

- Do you paint your pumpkins, or do you carve them? I've always been a carver myself, but here are some good tips to paint pumpkins like a pro!

- It's been 54 years, but this rocket is finally coming home. 

- My hometown library, the Cabell County Public Library in Huntington, West Virginia, is hosting a story walk, and I LOVE it. Wish I could be there!

- A few of our favorite fall recipes are in this post. 

- You are never ready to have a baby. 

Have a wonderful weekend!
