The big news from my week this week is that I actually left my house! I got my flu shot at a drive through flu clinic – I didn’t even have to get out of the car. Getting a flu shot is so, so important this year more than ever. I’m really glad that I was able to get one without having to worry about COVID exposure.
Enjoy this picture I took through the car window to commemorate my first car ride since March.
Now, on to this week’s favorites.
ONE – Mandy Patinkin
I love Mandy Patinkin so much – you might know his as Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride (and if you don’t, you should!). This is a great interview, and has some really great wisdom in it about appreciation and not focusing too much on things that have gone wrong.
TWO – Dolly Parton Autocomplete Interview
I’m not a huge Dolly Parton fan – it’s not that I dislike her music, I just haven’t listened to much of it! But I watched a documentary about her on Netflix and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. And then this Autocomplete interview popped up on my YouTube, and now I think I’m a new Dolly fan!
THREE – Vote Necklace
I’ve really been into supporting small jewelers this year, and this is a new-to-me small business that I now love! They made the vote necklace that I’m wearing in this post, but they have so many other cute options, too.
FOUR – Kamala Harris Interview
I really love this interview that Elle published with Kamala Harris. It’s a great read overall, but I especially love the emphasis on optimism. I think we could all use more of that right now!
FIVE – Ranking Kirk’s Jobs
I’m ending this post on a very lighthearted, happy note. Sean Gunn, who played Kirk on Gilmore Girls, ranks the jobs that Kirk held in the show – and there are a lot! I kept giggling to myself reading all of the silly jobs they had him do.
