Weekend in Pictures

Tulips are still everywhere - one of my favorite parts of spring :)

Tulips are still coming up in the garden – one of my favorite parts of spring ๐Ÿ™‚

I forget what these are called, but they're another groundcover that keeps spreading happily every year...

Invested in a couple new organic towels that are not only made from organic cotton but also use azo-free dyes, which is a chemical many in the textile industry use that has been proven to be a carcinogen.

Invested in new organic towels after my last two 20+ year old towels (yep, got ’em in college at Costco, pre-NAFTA when towels were still made in the USA) finally were turned into rags this weekend (the fella will be happy about this as we never have enough it seems!). They are not only made from organic cotton but are also free ofย  azo dyes, a carcinogenic chemical used in the textile industry, and is OE 100 certified.

My usual Sunday morning breakfast and New York Times at Woodlawn Coffee took a bit of a turn as I tried the special, pork belly with poached egg on lentils with chimchurri. Very interesting and pretty tasty, but I'll probably return to my regular dish next week :)  Gotta love Kelly the barista who always has my coffee ready for me by the time I reach the front of the line!

My usual Sunday morning breakfast and perusal of the New York Times at Woodlawn Coffee included the special, pork belly with poached egg on lentils with chimchurri. Very interesting and pretty tasty, but I’ll probably return to my regular dish (GF of course) next week ๐Ÿ™‚ Kudos again to Kelly the barista who always has my drink ready for me by the time I reach the front of the line!

Completely immersed in Gloria Steinem’s Revolution from Within. I’d always thought I’d already read this, so realizing I had not was a wonderful surprise. My friend Amy will appreciate that I am marking the hell up out of this book as there’s so much inspiration!! It sparked a conversation with my fiance as well about how women grow up reading books by male and female authors but men rarely are reading female authors. Needless to say, Toni Morrison and Gloria Steinem are now on his list of authors to get familiar with ๐Ÿ™‚ (source)

    Yes! Most all of our textbooks were written by men, and very few women authors were included in the canon until much later than we’d like to think. The first textbook I read that was written solely by women was not until college (because it just wasn’t done before more recent times). Awesome that you are marking away ;).

    Yay for your sweetie being interested in the issues that impact women (and therefore, men)! Not only is he an intellectual, he’s open. What a great combination.

    Haha, I was hoping those beans were heaped by some kind of roasted potato… though, I have zero doubt that pork belly is delicious!

    Your garden is looking gorgeous!
