Weekend Reading Vol. 27: Mary Poppins, Candy & Flannel
Someone hit a hydro pole in our neighbourhood last night, which meant we were without power from 3 a.m. until noon. Our morning plans were immediately scrapped and we went out for pancakes. Then we went to the library. Then we went to a coffee shop. So now I’ve got that blissful caffeine-and-sugar buzz.
What started off as an uncomfortable — “Our house is freezing!!!” — morning turned into some great quality family time. Even though we were unshowered and feeling greasy and cold-sweaty for most of it.
Now that everyone’s cozy and warm again, it’s time to look back on my favourite reads of the week:
I love Poppins and Blunt. So I probably need to see this movie.
Also at Vogue: 73 Questions With Emily Blunt.
My Social Anxiety Cure-All. (Cup of Jo)
Spoiler: be curious and kind.
Candy Crush. (The New York Times)
Dream job: travel the world, eat candy. (I have a very high sugar tolerance.)
The Annals of Flannel. (The New York Times)
A fascinating story about one man’s quest to bring flannel manufacturing back to the U.S.A.
From A Sweatshirt To A Dining Room?!? (Oh Joy!)
So cheerful. Once the Christmas decorations come down — assuming they go up — there will be some major colour-infusion in this house.
Velvet. Is. In.
Yes, please. Matthew and I have been talking about checkerboard floors for years. Apparently we were ahead of the curve?
