Hello dear friends.
Welcome to another Sunday. It’s a weird one, but we’re in it just the same.
In one of my posts this week Suzy Parker was kind enough to help me switch my brain with a blog comment. She left a comment with a “modality to get back to the present moment”. I’ll leave it here for all of us. The invitation is to read it through and call it up in your brain whenever you might need it. It’s a reset button to be sure.
Sit quietly and look around you for 5 things you can see and identify
Now identify 4 things you can hear
3 things you can feel
2 things you can smell
And 1 thing you can taste
Sweet, right? Very good for here and now, literally. Thank you Suzy.
The offering this week is below. As always, take only what you need and water the plants, snuggle the dog, and pat your cat on the head, and make the English Muffin Loaf because it’s sustaining.

• We Live In Zoom Now but it’s not forever, but I sure am glad it’s here now. (New York Times)
• I live in Zoom, too. Next week I’m starting online live Bakehouse Workshops. You’re welcome to bake with me! (Eventbrite)
• Everything on ‘Naked and Afraid’ Is Real, And I Lived It. I’ll tell you what… if I have to pull a scorpion off my naked body, I’m in the wrong place. The most incredible part of this article to me was the fact that Black Mamba snakes can grow to 14- feet long and… get this: STAND A THIRD OF THEIR BODIES OFF THE GROUND! (Outside)
• Consider The Home Edit’s 14-Day Mini Edit. (The Home Edit)
• This Gnocchi Broccoli Cheddar Soup from Jon looks vvvv comforting. (The Candid Appetite)
• A song I have on repeat: All I Want. I’m also building a playlist around it. Stay tuned. (Spotify)
• Let It Be Sunday, 214. One year ago this week we talked about chickpeas, how our dogs know when we’re sick, and denim. (Joy the Baker)
• Let It Be Sunday, 163. Two years ago this week we talked about Stephen Hawking and how neuroscience says no one is ‘normal’. I’ve taken to eating Cheetos with a chopstick so I’m definitely not normal. (Joy the Baker)
• Very much leaning into pasta dinner: The Absolute Best Way To Cook Pasta According to Too Many Tests. (Food52)

Be well. Stay well. Be kind. Stay kind.
My love to you now as ever.
