Hiiiii. Week one of solo parenting down, not sure how many to go. When Craig headed up to Vermont last week we didn’t really have a plan. We didn’t know how long he’d stay or how long I could get by on my own, but he’s still there and he’s probably going to be for a while. The house definitely needs more work than we anticipated it would in order to move in. He’s working hard on getting the basement done so we can move in down there because it has a bathroom. Next up will be the kitchen. We also need to redo the floors and ceilings. I’m headed up there this weekend to help (if you can call it that).
Excited to see how the foliage is looking up there. It’s already changing so much here. I can’t believe it’s almost October. Election is in 39 days. We can do this. Have a great weekend.

Obviously the passing last Friday of RBG was/is devastating. There were so many amazing obituaries written, but we especially loved this one by her friend and writer, Nina Totenberg.
Such a smart piece about checking your media consumption—and honestly checking in with yourself about what you believe and why.
A reader started a mask shop on Etsy and they are very affordable, ship free and come in tons of cute prints.
These pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes are the perfect weekend breakfast.
I stayed awake way too late bingeing season 2 of Pen15 on Hulu. For those of us born in the 80s, kids of the 90s, it just hits so close to home. I laughed, I cried and I cringed. (J)
This has become an autumnal tradition on C.R.L. because this article is just too funny: “It’s Decorative Gourd Season Motherf$*kers!”
I binged this podcast from the NY Times, Rabbit Hole. As someone that has really tried to understand QAnon and it’s followers I thought those episodes in particular were really eye opening. (J)

I’m basically obsessed with bee.the.love’s Insta feed but this vegan sundried tomato pumpkin and sage pasta looks like a hug on a plate. (C)
Here’s how the pandemic ends.
Honestly trigger warning because this article about potential election outcomes sent me into a little bit of a tailspin, but it also made me realize how important it is to vote, and make sure everyone I know is going to vote too.
You guys, now is the time to be enjoying all the dried flowers and grasses. Here’s how to style your home with them.
