Let It Be Sunday, 142!

Hello sweet friends!

I hope this Sunday proves to be a restful cure to bleary eyes and weary backs.  That’s what I’m hoping for myself and I’ll just pass those hopes on to you.  It’s a short list today, but I promise this week will have some recipe gems and good vibes.  There’s more to come.  Here’s our Sunday reading for here and now:   

  I first listened to this story on The Daily Podcast (linked in the story as well).  Give it a read / listen. It’s very human and gives life to a perspective we might not always see this closely:  Becoming a Steelworker Liberated Her. Then Her Job Moved To Mexico. 

  In search of perspective with an openness that is important.  Inspired By #MeToo, I Talked To A Sexist I Actually Love

  File under, Not Surprising At All:  The Secretive Family Making Billions From The Opioid Crisis

  My goodness, honestly:  Why Are Prosecutors Putting Innocent Witnesses In Jail?

  9 Book About Money That Every Woman Should Read.  Getting our dollar bills are important.  Not long ago I asked my financial planner friend Jessi to give me the low-down:  Pro Tips From A Financial Planner. Don’t talk about it, be about it. 

  Very shortly I’m going to figure out how to make this wreath for myself:  Magnolia Leaf Wreath.  And in related news, I’ll have a paper flower poinsettia tutorial up on the blog for you after Halloween. 

  An offering for your Autumn Baking List:  Pear Crumble Coffee Cake.

  I’m putting together a more comprehensive schedule of events for workshops and classes at The Bakehouse! Find the schedule here!  This weekend we had a pretzel making adventure (see photo evidence above).  And! There will be more classes for this holiday season added soon! Also, follow along with the adventures on Instagram: @thebakehousenola.  Hope you’ll come play!  

  What’s on your reading list right now?  This is a cry for help. 

  Excuse me while I shut out the world and sit on the couch in this sweater for as long as I want.

•  When it comes to cookies, it literally doesn’t get better than these: Milk Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies.  I remade them just last week and praise-hands there is still dough left in the refrigerator. 

Enjoy this day!

I think you’re great.
