mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week? I’ve been super engrossed in the podcast Up and Vanished. Have you listened to it? Gotta love a program that makes you excited to do the dishes and clean up the kitchen after dinner each night. Great reason to pop in the headphones! Chet has even started listening on his commute and during evening exercise. (I wish he’d catch up to where I am! I hate having to be mindful of spoilers!!) Hope you have a magnificent day, and here are a few things I think you’ll love…

  1. I think a bubbling face mask would freak me out!

    The plan for after the Queen’s death is really interesting to read and think about. I watched “The Crown” on Netflix and remember them calling Winston Churchill with the message “Hyde Park Corner” when Bertie died.
