Friday Finds

I’m off FB and IG because it’s December. It’s amazing how much time that opens up to write posts (and clean my house and knit and read and things).

  1. The best stuff about growing up when I did.
  2. My retirement dream.
  3. I don’t have FOMO very often, but when I do it’s usually for my kids.
  4. Twenty something me REALLY wants these shoes.
  5. I have 5 of these 7 things in my cupboards at all times.
  6. I just liked this piece.
  7. How to survive the holidays when estranged from family.
  8. Next year seeds.
  9. My kind of advent calendar.
  10. This was the first movie I saw in the theater in over 2 years. It was worth it.
  11. Christmas movie checklist. (Which ones would you add/remove? Die Hard is a definite add on for me.)
  12. I want to knit myself this sweater.
  13. Sometimes I just need some good snark.
  14. The Problem with Being Cool About Sex.
  15. One of my favorite gifts to give. (They smell DIVINE).
  16. Another go-to gift idea.
  17. Canned sunsets. (I loved making sand art as a kid.)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  • $145,000 for the Airstream? It’s gorgeous and I kind of think it might be worth it. Should I have that kind of extra cash hanging around.

    65 million Americans estranged from one family member? Sounds about right to me. I don’t see that as a bad thing, btw. You have to take care of yourself first, and if a family member is a user best to keep them at arm’s length.

    I love the little pinecone candles. I remember getting a hostess gift that was similar except that it was a little honey pot bees wax candle that was scented with honey. Divine.

    • As second homes go – I feel like $150,000 is a STEAL. Granted, you’re still having to pay to drive/park it but that’s the dream.

      I’ve ordered from that candle company from the last couple years. I don’t know what it is but nothing smells as good as them. And those little pine cones are adorable!!

  • I got so lost in the best stuff I don’t have time to properly peruse the others. I am so aware of how much the world has changed now that I’m teaching teenagers again. We’re doing a lot with news/information media these days, which I think has undergone profound shifts since about 2015 or so. The other day I realized that my students were just 10 then. They were toddlers when smart phones came out. I have to be consciously aware of how so much of what seems foreign to me seems natural to them. And how much they don’t know about what they don’t know about how things might be different because they’ve never known the world differently. Just gives me a lot to think about lately.

    • V and A are regular reminders that things have changed very, very much and very, very quickly. I feel “they don’t know what they don’t know” SO often and then it slams me that I ALSO don’t know what I don’t know. The world I inherited, and the world they are inheriting have SO many differences.

      I love to hear more about the changes you see in media since 2015.

      And I’m going to point you to one other find – the advent calendar link is one I think you’d like too. At least I thought I’d you.
