Things I’m loving this week

Loud metal. I forgot how completely awesome hard rock is because I live with two teen girls and a 47-year old man so I mostly listen to pop or 70’s music (I’m so sick of the 70s, by the way). But, twice in the past week, my mind recalled old lyrics from Iron Maiden and AC/DC  songs which sent me to YouTube to reminisce a bit about my rebellious years. They’re still kick-ass songs. Also I forgot how therapeutic angry metal is.


Concord grapes from North East. I know some people think these slip-skin grapes are gross, but I grew up eating them and I love them. I stop at roadside stands all the time in September and then I totally hide my stash in the back of the vegetable crisper so my kids don’t eat them all.


This shirt. I’m putting it on the top of my holiday wish list. Merry Christmas to me….

Things I’m not loving this week

Roasted brussels sprouts and cauliflower soup. I’m usually a big fan of Skinny Taste recipes, but this one looks like vomit, doesn’t taste much better. IMHO, of course.

Mar-a-Lago is still standing. Irma, you had ONE job.

This story. If this doesn’t terrify you, I don’t know what will. (Probably immigrants or red cups at Starbucks).
