The weather this week has been mostly cold and rainy. I am still in sweaters and boots and it is the end of April. This is pretty typical for our weather here. I have had some ups and downs and some days where I am just really in a funk. I have taken to some self care, long showers, matching pajamas and a lot of stress baking. I made challah french toast (recipe here) and anytime I can spend in the kitchen cooking or cleaning helps me remain calm and distracts me from the news.
My favorite read of the week and an important one. We Need to Talk About How We Talk to Each Other
