The TBR List: April 18
Someday I'll stop talking about the weather in Chicago. Promise. Last Saturday, we walked down to Millennium Park and noshed on chocolate and hazelnut gelato and people watched near the iconic sculpture someone actually thought should be named "Cloud Gate." Chump. The Bean it always has been, and The Bean it always shall be.
Fast forward to Monday when we experienced a sudden, 40º drop in temperatures and all came down with head colds. I took my first sick day in a long time and spent all of Wednesday sleeping. It was part awful, part glorious. I tried not to feel too guilty about staying home from work.
Temps are creeping back up today and hopefully it'll be smooth sailing from here. Personally, I'm ready to get barbecue season going...
And now, the links:
- I should probably make sure my fridge is running as efficiently as possible.
- Gabriel García Márquez passed away at the age of 87 on Thursday.
- My oh my, this is a prettyprettypretty desk.
- This hard-boiled egg peeling technique is mind-blowing. Best use of Instagram video to date, in my book.
- Plant breeders are creating "open source seeds." Take that, Monsanto!
- Speaking of plants, I want to make these DIY copper hanging planters. Who wants to craft with me?
PS: I need a Passover-friendly recipe for a potluck baby shower on Sunday. Any suggestions?
PPS: Best wishes to all celebrating Easter and/or Passover and/or the lovely weather this weekend!
