It feels like podcasts have hit their stride, doesn’t it? I certainly loved Serial and devoured it like a big piece of chocolate cake. Can’t wait for Season 2. While I do wait, though, I’m listening to Slate’s “Working” podcast. I’m utterly fascinated by how people do their jobs and I love listening to their details while I drive. This podcast covers all manner of vocations, from a school principal to a pastor to a perfumer. Riveting stuff, people.
I adore (adore!!!) the Artful Parent blog about how to bring creativity to your family’s daily life. Not being super creative myself, I need ideas for art projects and other ways to allow my 3-year-old son to be messy and creative. Along the way, I’ve found my own inner artist, too. Definitely worth checking out. Her book is a gem, too. I use it weekly.
Speaking of books, this one scared the bejeesus out of me, in the best way possible. It’s part ghost story, part historical novel, part modern day thriller. And all page-turner. Sheesh. I read it in just 4 days.
Since I started eating “on plan” breakfast is a must. My latest first meal obsession? This. If you like savory breakfasts and can do eggs and avocados, then you must try this. The key to this breakfast is to hardboil the eggs in advance, otherwise, it’d take too long. This recipe is from Bob Harper’s book, which is a lifesaver if you’re looking to eat clean, but need some new meals because you’re bored as hell with salmon on greens.
Get Running app
This app kicks my ass 5 days a week. The woman has a British accent that belies how hard she’ll make you work. As much as she annoys me, she’s turned me into a runner.
