farmers market by christine han

How are you doing? What are you up to this weekend? We’ve canceled plans and are going to be hanging out at home. Social distancing feels really important right now. I’m looking forward to baking, trying Yoga with Adriene (I’ve heard such amazing things) and playing with the boys. Hope you’re hanging in there, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

LOVE this calm place on the internet. (New York Times)

How to structure the day at home with kids. Smart tips from a teacher.

Advice from an Italian grandma, haha.

The boys and I have been doing a lot of baking. These would come in so much handy!

Insecure’s season 4 trailer is a pick me up.

The best game I’ve played in ages. Highly, highly recommend.

Uh Oh: Mom Slowly Driving Down Road With All the Pretty Houses Again.”

Bad reviews of national parks. “It’s essentially a big lake. Big whoop.”

I laughed so much at this Man Repeller Instagram series. (Here are the other videos: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.)

The most entertaining podcast episode I’ve heard in ages.

A woman’s 370-square-foot studio.

Also, love this farmhouse’s wallpaper. (New York Times)

Plus, two reader comments:

Says Irene on how are you feeling about the coronavirus: “I live in Northern Italy, quite close to the very first outbreak in Europe. Following the government provisions, we cannot leave our homes and when we do (to buy some groceries) we wear surgical masks: realizing that I was not able to see other people’s faces has probably been one of the hardest moments these days. Nevertheless, all over the country, children have begun to hang banners at the windows — colorful rainbows with the writing ‘Andrà tutto bene,’ meaning ‘Everything will be fine,’ and I’m spotting a handful of them outside my terrace right now. Andrà tutto bene, I do believe that.”

Says Kate on how are you feeling about the coronavirus: “This article from the Kitchn really stood out to me. If you’re be able to do so, please donate cash or needed supplies to your local food bank or preferred child services or elderly services charity. Their resources will be hugely taxed by this and we need to help each other. Also, if you have a standing appointment with someone in the service industry and your income flow isn’t impacted, maybe go ahead and pay even if you miss this hair appointment, etc.” Readers, here’s a link for a food bank donation page. Please join us in donating, if you can.
