What I'm Reading This Week #31

Happy Friday everyone!  Sorry for the light week but literally NOTHING has been going on and I didn't have it in me to make crap up.  I did have an irritated throat for like 24 hours (after a workout that got me hacking because my lung capacity sucks) and it's sad how an irritated throat now sends you down the rabbit hole and you're all like...


Other than that, I'm going stir crazy.  


Now let's consume...

How to Relieve Sore Muscles in 5 Easy Steps   (We've been sore AF the past few weeks.)

Should You Exercise When You Are Sore?  (See above)

I tried a 74-year-old fitness influencer's daily workout for a week and it kicked my butt!  (Get it girl!)

25 Ways You're Borrowing Self from Others  (Interesting)

7 Ways That Childhood Adversity Can Affect the Brain  (Oh but "kids are resilient!"  *rolling eyes*  Something adults like to say to gloss over their contribution to a potential lifetime of issues.)

Things you should never clean with disinfecting wipes   (Good to know)

What Is Noise Pollution? Here's Exactly How It Affects Your Health, and What to Do About It  (I can attest.  There's a dude that for the first 3 months of lock down drove up and down the street 6-10x a day with his loud muffler and I was ready to raaaaaage.)

Baked Parmesan Zucchini Fries (Yum!)

15 Items You Should Be Buying Vintage, But Aren’t  (Sometimes you can find some good stuff out there!)

The most influential music videos of all time  (Man, so many memories!)

How Each State Got Its Shape   (For your next virtual trivia night)

I do want to wish a very happy birthday to my bestie!  The world is a better place with her in it.

If you need something to watch this weekend, Lollapalooza is on YouTube for free.  I plan on watching The Cure tonight. 

It looks like the blast furnace that is the weather will be turned down about 10 degrees for a few days in exchange for rain.  I'm good with that.  No clue what the weekend will look like for us but I'm hoping mind numbing boredom isn't on tap.  I need a change of scenery...SOON.

Anything going on this weekend for you?

  1. Hopefully you're feeling fine this morning but I know the feeling. I get so much as a dry cough for a minute and feel a bit freaked out until it subsides. The weeks are really going by. It's August tomorrow which is mind boggling to me because normally by now we've had a summer full of memories or at least a few road trips or something. It is time for a change of scenery. I know we have done aimless driving but it's tough when you can't stop anywhere really. Kind of limits how far you really want to drive. Let's all have a great weekend regardless!

  2. My boys are in town to celebrate my birthday weekend. Golf and barbecue is on tap.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Thank you!!! oxoxoxo I have the usual stuff on tap, but with some birthday enjoyment too. I really need to get with it and get the laundry started. I've been hopping around all day and as weird as this sounds, I absolutely love looking at an empty laundry bin/basket/hamper (I have all I practically get giddy when for one day there's nothing in there. And then it starts again...ROFL. We are in for cooler temps as well, although every day it's about 4-5 degrees warmer than they say. But a definite improvement to the past few weeks. We cut the lawn on Wednesday and with it being so dry, it may not grow very much. I'm hearing 70's on Monday and Tuesday but I can't quite get myself to believe it.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy some cooler time on your patio without all the bugs and sweat for a change!
