How’s your week been? This one seems to have flown by and left me so ready for the weekend! Here’s to relaxation, fighting off a cold, and finding the motivation to finish refinishing the last window in our guest bedroom! Here are a few things that struck us this week!
These peach margaritas on Lauren Conrad’s site might be another good use for the pounds of peaches we can’t resist buying from Mountain Meadows Farm this time of year, but who am I kidding? I’ll probably eat them all before they ever get made into something like this.
In the wake of this past week’s events, it can be hard to know how to help. This list of 8 Ways to Help After Charlottesville on Cup of Jo stood out to us.
There are also creative solutions like this one used by a German town a few years ago. That’s one way to bring a bit of light to a not so light situation.
We mentioned a few weeks ago that we’ve been reading The Book of Joy, which records the conversations between Desmond Tutu and and Dalai Lama around joy and love. This quote by the Dalai Lama stood out to me in my reading this week:
“We need unbiased love toward entire humanity, entire sentient beings, irrespective of what their attitude is toward us. So your enemies are still human brothers and sisters, so they deserve our love, our respect, our affection. That’s unbiased love. You might have to resist your enemies’ actions, but you can love them as brothers and sisters. Only we human beings can do this with our human intelligence. Other animals cannot do this.”
