A perfect time to . . .
. . . with some of the flotsam and jetsam in my Evernote files.
Let's begin with some practical information.
Summer may be rolling right along, but there is still plenty of time to hang out near the water.
With your phone.
This article from Asurion, the phone-insurance "arm"of Verizon, explains just what you should do to save your phone from water damage, should it go for a swim (or a nice soak in the tub). I found it informative and helpful. Maybe you will, too.
(Although I hope your phone stays nice and dry, and that you never need to heed this advice.)
Looking for something to watch on TV?
I don't know about you, but I'm finding it hard to wait each week for the newest episode of Ted Lasso (season 2) to "drop" on Fridays. And . . . for the first time in my life, I don't seem all that interested in watching the Olympics (is it just me?). If you're looking for something summer-"light" and a little bit fun to watch, maybe you'll enjoy this list of the 60 Best Romantic Comedies of All Time.
(Which rom-com is your favorite??? And did it make the list?)
Interested in tracking your reading in a deeper way?
I know quite a few of you (like me) use Goodreads to track the books you read/want to read.
I also know that several of you want a little bit . . . more . . . than Goodreads provides when it comes to keeping track of your books and connecting with other readers. Although I'm not really in the market for new ways to slice-and-dice my reading (I have developed my own system for note-taking, and I find Goodreads' listing tool sufficient for my needs), I thought this article about four new and unique reading tools was really interesting -- and might be fascinating for many of you.
(Just curious. Do you keep track of the books you read? If you do, what's your preferred method?)
Tired of throwing away "fresh" produce, now past its prime?
I'm embarrassed to admit it, but this does happen to me. Way more often than I'd like it to. (Looking at you, petrified limes . . . languishing there in my fruit bowl.) I found this article from Wirecutter about How To Keep Your Produce Fresh for Weeks really helpful. I'm determined to do better!
(That link is a Wirecutter/NYTimes link, and I'm not sure if it can be opened if you are not a NYT subscriber. My apologies if that is the case. If you are interested in the content but can't open the article, please let me know and I'll find a way to get the info to you.)
For your listening pleasure.
Okay. So I tried every which way to embed a music video here, and I can't. (This time it is YouTube, not my blogging platform.)
Let me just say . . . you will not be disappointed if you take the time to click here to watch the video I WANTED to embed in this space. And then, check out more Vitamin String Quartet (they're fabulous and worth the trip down the rabbit hole) on YouTube or Spotify.
Here's to the start of a great week - and a great month.
