Good Friday morning friends. I hope that you have had a good week. I’ve been busy with work, slowly resuming yoga 3 days a week, spending time with family and trying to wrap my mind around the fact that it is already June 19th! Honestly, I don’t really feel like its summer, do you?
This weekend is Father’s Day so I hope that if you are able to share the day with your dad that you do it safely, and mindfully; focus on your dad and make him feel special after these long months of isolation.
I hope that you find something here this week that you enjoy.
Buttermilk Waffle Breakfast Sandwich from Woman’s Day look like the perfect way to start the weekend celebrations.
Why not make some Easy Queso Dip from the Cookie Rookie and serve it for a snack while visiting dad?
Then you could serve this scrumptious Brisket Sandwich from The Kitchen Sanctuary.
Grilled Brioche with Berries from The Noshery is easy and delicious.
These are my dads favorite brownies, if you make a batch for your dad they may be his as well.
5 Lessons I Learned from Lockdown(Collective Gen)
I like this video of Will Smiths’ definition of love.
A mom in her early fifties, Clover knows she no longer turns heads the way she used to, and she’s only really missed when dinner isn’t on the table on time. Then Clover wakes up one morning to discover she’s invisible–truly invisible. She panics even more when her family doesn’t notice a thing. Her best friend immediately observes the change, which relieves Clover immensely–she’s not losing her mind after all!–but she is crushed by the realization that neither her husband nor her children ever truly look at her. She was invisible even before she knew it.
Clover discovers that there are others like her, women of a certain age who seem to have disappeared. As she uses her invisibility to get to know her family and her town better, Clover leads the way in helping invisible women become recognized and appreciated no matter what their role. Smart and hilarious, with indomitable female characters, Calling Invisible Women will appeal to anyone who has ever felt invisible.
In late 2007, Dominique Browning, the editor-in-chief of Conde Nast’s House & Garden, was informed that the magazine had folded-and she was out of a job. Suddenly divested of the income and sense of purpose that had driven her for most of her adult life, Browning panicked. But freed of the incessant pressure to multi-task and perform, she unexpectedly discovered a more meaningful way to live.
Browning’s witty and thoughtful memoir has already touched a chord with reviewers and readers alike. While untold millions are feeling the stress of modern life, Slow Love eloquently reminds us to appreciate what we have-a timely message that we all need to hear.
At the behest of his agent, renowned author Yoel Blum reluctantly agrees to visit his birthplace of Amsterdam to promote his books, despite promising his late mother that he would never return to that city. While touring the Jewish Historical Museum with his wife, Yoel stumbles upon footage portraying prewar Dutch Jewry and is astonished to see the youthful face of his beloved mother staring back at him, posing with his father, his older sister…and an infant he doesn’t recognize.
This unsettling discovery launches him into a fervent search for the truth, shining a light on Amsterdam’s dark wartime history—the underground networks that hid Jewish children away from danger and those who betrayed their own for the sake of survival. The deeper into the past Yoel digs to tell the story of his life, the better he understands his mother’s silence, and the more urgent the question that has unconsciously haunted him for a lifetime—Who am I?—becomes.
Part family mystery, part wartime drama, House on Endless Waters is an unforgettable meditation on identity, belonging, and the inextricable nature of past and present.
