Dala  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: What are your weekend plans?

Finished one book (The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg) and am starting Assholes A Theory by Jody Foster. Got yarn for some projects on sale and with a 20% off coupon on top and am going to finish up at least one crochet project. Other than that I am planning on being lazy and enjoying as much nice weather as nature allows for before the next three weeks of work attempt to rob me of what little is left of my sanity.

Invisibilia: The Personality Myth.

http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/06/24/481859662/invisibilia-is-your-personality-fixed-or-can-you-change-who-you-are

A new season of Invisibilia is about to start. If you listen to podcasts, this should be in your feed. If you don't, this is a great place to start a listening habit.

Reading The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. Not enjoying it as much as Smarter Faster Better. My most recent adds to my read list have been Assholes: A Theory by Jody Foster (not the actress I think but that would be funny) and a whole bunch of stuff about astrophysics.

Anybody down for a Hubski group on Goodreads? Since lil was asking about seeing book lists.

The important thing is that you finally got me Daytripper.

I love alexandrites! My engagement ring is a London blue topaz because who doesn't want an irradiated rock on their hand? Alexandrite was going to be my second choice. My explaining this to rd95 also just led us on a tour of my jewelry box (I showed him my Alexandrite ring and he thought it was really neat) and then my rock collection. He liked my fluorite octahedrons, smoky quartzes, and labradorites best.

Dichroic glass is a lot of fun.

Hot cocoa is a popular winter beverage here, and rumor has it that Russia has cold winters, so I figured it could go either way.

If you can overcome all of that, I'm quite sure you can do anything you put your mind to. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

...and I can't drink on the meds either. Not that I did before anyway.

I want some of that powidl. I can get plums here but I doubt I could make it quite right. Might try this fall anyway.

My favorite jam to make is jalapeño.

I suppose that it isn't, you can buy cartons of milk flavored with chocolate, strawberry, and now banana here in stores. I had just never heard of doing it with jam, and wondered if it was served cold or warm.

Your internet stranger friend is very wise.

I'm curious now about this milk with jam. I have never heard of it. I don't think there is much of a Russian community where I live, so while I have been exposed to interesting culinary fun from a variety of cultures, yours is one that is a complete mystery.

Good on ya. I can't do soda anymore due to a medication that I take. I do still like sweetened teas and coffees but I have cut back on those too. I've lost a couple of pounds since the medication started, probably due to the loss of soda in my diet. Keep us posted on how it goes!
