This weekend it’s lunch at Mom’s house and a movie with Marc. We’ll be watching The Avengers, not my favorite movie but spending time together makes it enjoyable anyway. Did I mention it’s a three hour movie :)
~ Take a look at the newly opened TWA Hotel at the JFK Airport. Such a cool retro remodel.
~ Renee Zellweger does an amazing portrayal of Judy Garland in the trailer for “Judy”.
~ Bookstores: How to Read More Books in the Age of Golden Content - Fun documentary about reading more and bookstores. It’s free and only about 30 minutes long.
~ Inheritance - Dani Shapiro - This is her latest memoir about her finding out that her father is not her biological father. The book opens with that and goes into how that changed her idea of who she was and answered many of the questions she had growing up feeling different. I’d recommend the audiobook as Dani has a beautiful voice and makes the stories feel so much more personal.
~ It’s been a little over the halfway mark on my month of no shopping for anything other than food and basic toiletries. Everytime I think of something I want to purchase, I put it on my wish list. It’s been going really well. I caught myself putting something in my Amazon shopping cart but then deleted it. I was also at the drugstore and picked up a home hair highlighting kit and headed for the checkout line, but thought about it and put it back. It’s feeling really good and I’ve gone back several times to my wish list and deleted things I thought I wanted but now see that I really don’t need it. Leo Babauta has an interesting article about why we buy things.
~ Pour Heavy Cream on Fruit. Such a simple idea yet so delicious.
~ Easy snack or lunch-Hummus Quesadilla-Smear a whole wheat tortilla with your favorite hummus (mine is red pepper hummus) and fold in half. Brown in a saute pan with a tiny bit of olive oil until brown on both sides. Serve w/ just hot sauce or avocado & cilantro. The hummus turns warm and creamy like melted cheese and is much healthier.
Have a wonderful weekend. ~xo Kai
