Weekend coffee #36.
Right now, I should probably be thinking about packing. Or at the very least, about tackling some of that lengthy to-do list, I keep putting off. Instead, I'm casually browsing the internet and eating my preferred weekend breakfast: an everything bagel with veggie cream cheese and an iced coffee. I'm feeling sort of torn between taking on local summer full force and embracing these next few weeks of warmish weather or packing it in and getting an early jump on fall. Maybe this is because of my planned not planning I talked about earlier in the week. Whatever the reason, here we are and here's what I'm reading:
- This Fast Company series "Why Work Has Failed Us." Well-written, well-researched and 100 percent on point. Covers issues of childcare costs, retirement, profit sharing and more.
- Looking forward to reading Doris Kearns Goodwin's book about LBJ. After a previous work experience, LBJ became an interest of mine, and I'm interested in learning her take.
- Another book I'm adding to my incredibly long wishlist is Fashion Climbing: A Memoir by Bill Cunningham. You can read an excerpt of that one at Gothamist.
- On a similar historical note, I finally checked out the Heat and Light podcast and wanted to pass it along to others. Worth a listen.
- Totally unrelated but relevant to my interests: this Reese's whipped cream. Has anyone tried it? I'm a sucker for anything Reese's and anything whipped cream so don't tell me if it's terrible.
- Fully obsessed with this jumpsuit from Madewell and desperate for the Desert Olive color to come back in stock. Also, Madewell if you're reading this - black, please. Or navy. Or tan, even.
