Lake Michigan

What are your plans for this weekend? We visit my parents in Michigan, and as I write this sentence, Toby and my dad are getting ready. (They use this a very cute children’s cook.) I hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from all over the web …

Do you want to watch Goodfellas together next Wednesday? Join us at Watching a group on Instagram!!

I love this photo swimming in a stream.

The first thing I packed for our trip.

Halloumi burgers.

The secret of cancer. “Why do you have to be positive?” [the doctor] he asked in a neutral voice … God loved it, she said exactly what I needed to hear: “I saw some of the biggest bitches come in, and they’re still alive.” (Atlantic.)

How perfect it is this sweater for work from home??

Tornado photos.

I watched this documentary about marriage again last night and it was so good.

I can’t get enough Swimming pools in Iceland.

One, can this be the sexiest title??

Cute surfboards, from everything.

Highlights: Here are the NYTimes constantly updated reports on Afghanistan, and there are more here ways to help Afghan refugees arriving in the United States Also, here is one careful piece bombing in Kabul. (Atlantic.) We will continue to share links on Instagram.

In addition, three reader comments:

He says in June what first meal did you eat after giving birth?: “I am a student midwife in the UK, where tea and toast have the legendary status of postpartum meals. Nerves when I first brewed a tray with tea and a toast to a new family! Standing looking over the toaster anxiously waiting for it to be just right. Two packets of each jam flavor, worried about the amount of tea bags in the pot. A lot of love goes into those trays, and the excitement of bringing that precious meal into the room where mom and baby are tucked away hasn’t worn off in the slightest. ”

Louise goes on the best gift to the host: “Honestly? The best we bring to dinner parties (when they don’t have, yeah, they have plans) are our teenage daughters. We were the first in our social group to have children, so when the girls aged 15 and 17 showed up with us, the little ones went crazy. Our 15-year-old will bring art supplies, and our 17-year-old will have her own soccer ball, and everyone will just hang out around the rest of the night. Those summer evenings are some of my favorite memories. ”

Annie says further the best gift to the host: “The first person to give me flowers was my dad, who showed up for lunch at my apartment when I was a young woman, with a bunch of daffodils. ‘Always bring flowers for the hostess,’ was his comment. After 40 years, I am still fascinated by the memory. ”
