mid-week round-up

red flowers

Welcome to Wednesday! How has everyone been? Last week Chet was on Spring Break so we were able to sneak away to the beach a couple times. I finished this book with my toes in the sand. Not exactly light, fluffy beach reading but fascinating just the same. Now I’m reading a book about home design, feng shui, and self awareness. It includes a lot of exercises and self-guided meditations to help you design a “home for your heart.” Yesterday, I completed an activity where I sketched out the floor-plan of a dream-house I “visited” while meditating. Apparently I want a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage with a big front porch, screened in breakfast nook, and a table specifically reserved for crafting. Sounds about right. (Does all of that sound crazy? Meh. I’m into it, whatevs.) Anyways, this week I’ve been taking it easy and trying to get as much work done as possible because I’m headed back to Bowling Green on Friday, get back Monday, and then Chet and I are off to Gainesville the following Friday to judge at a national speech tournament! Should be a fun couple of weeks! Now, on to the links…

Speaking of dream homes, this bathroom makeover is making my heart flutter.

I’m a sucker for any viral internet stories about poop.

Can women get away with wearing the same thing to work every day?

The mystery of Richard Simmons’ silence.

A boy and his pets.

The dangerous culture lurking within America’s national parks.

What Americans don’t understand about Nordic countries.

The fading romance of Cinderella Homes.

Modern-day lepers.

15 things that can happen when you get into yoga.

This was disheartening.

A lesson in pronunciation.

The Queen has arrived with this week’s Finding Delight mid-week links round-up! For those who don’t know, I’m Adam, and publishing this post in memoriam of Finding Delight’s editor-in-chief. (JK she’s still alive). Full disclosure — I’ve waited a year to guest post on Finding Delight, a feat that has been delayed solely by way of my own laziness and HGTV. But since this go-get-em blog is celebrating its 1 year anniversary(!), I’m taking the opportunity to give lazy Beth a posting break.

Below, please find links to a few of the things that have given me pause for thought over the past few days:

This Kylie Jenner birthday post definitely gave me pause for thought.

You just you simply must go see this documentary: Ballet 422.

Speaking of movies, did you catch Cinderella at the theater this weekend? I bet you didn’t know the original Cinderella’s more complicated backstory, aside from her scrubby clothes.

This song rocks.

Did you know poop will be the ruin of Mt. Everest?

Please read this long read: “My Saga, Part 2: Karl Ove Knausgaard’s Passage through America.” And read the beautiful Part 1 via last week’s mid-week round-up. (Also note: Part 1 sharing credit should have been directed to this post’s author. Note to editors: I’ve note-ified my agent of the oversight. Final note: Noter and out.)

Are you in your PJs? Need a hard cry? Watch this less than 3 minute video produced by The Man.

Ashely Judd: This wildcat womyn is maybe my spirit animal.

And just because I can-can, here’s a Beyoncé music video you’re required to watch. Under Beyoncé law, of which we are all, you are indeed required to view/pray with this video before continuing your day.

…I’ll wait…

Bless you.

And that’s all you get this week! In all seriousness, congratulations on year 1 of new delights found, Beth. This blog rocks and has forever changed the way I think about soup broths and Gwyneth Paltrow—at the same time. To everyone else, please share this post at your heart’s delight.
