Been doing a whole lot of this lately, but more like the we have a baby version which is not sitting down until I’m actually lying down and going to bed at 8:30pm, haha. We recently started looking at houses in Vermont again so I’m just over here daydreaming about fall foliage and snowy winters in Woodstock. We put it on hold for a while, but the longer we’ve been home, the more we realize we probably aren’t going to be traveling (by plane anyway) anytime soon. Aside from everything with COVID, I just don’t see us traveling (far) with a baby. I know people do it all the time, but I don’t think we’d be very good at it. Hopefully eventually we’ll get to California to visit my mom and brothers, but otherwise we want to stay close to home and be able to bring the dogs and cat if we do travel. Who knows, maybe a Cozy Ranch North edition is in our future. In the meantime we are enjoying being at home and working on the never ending list of projects we have here. Wishing all of you a good weekend.

Jess (J) & Caylin (C)
Sort of on a true crime kick again, it cycles back and forth. But in the last week I’ve watched I’ll Be Gone in the Dark and Unsolved Mysteries. Which lead me to re-read this interview I did with Rachel Monroe, if you missed it and love true crime, definitely take a look. (C)
A Q&A with Zerlina Maxwell about how we’re witnessing the last gasp of white politics.
I got this big white umbrella for our little back patio area and it looks really nice in person. (J)
Anyone who loves a peanut sauce will fall in love with these chicken meatballs.
A new book goes deeper into the life of Kim Wall, the journalist who was murdered on assignment.
Thinking I might order this gauzy button down for our trip up to Vermont next weekend. (J)
It’s been awhile since I couldn’t put a book down, but one of my friends let me borrow A Discovery of Witches and now I’m hooked. (C)
If you’ve had enough of your local takeout places, try this thai basil sesame chashew chicken. Yum!
All the plant advice you need to keep ’em thriving.
I can’t even believe I’m saying this but I think I’ve entered the Teva phase of my life (again). I really like this pair, we’ll see how they actually look on. (J)
Everything you need to know about that Harper’s letter.
