    I will check out What my Bones Know. I have read parts of What happened to me.

    I’ve been looking for any reading and watching recs.

    Although, as you can imagine I’ve been watching and reading everything lately as distraction, so I’m uo to date on sadly, a lot of tv.

    I did spend like six hours in my garden today and it was awesome.

    If what you’re using works for you, no point in switching things up! I only made the change because my eyes started stinging. Supergoop came out with different shades of glow screen, so it might be the reformulation that isn’t sitting well with my eyeballs. I never had issues before. I like their everyday lotion because it’s not as heavy, greasy, or sunscreen-y as other sunscreens. The one LRP sunscreen I tried was also a derm rec and it worked great, but I didn’t like how thick it was. We used it in the Utah desert and I didn’t burn but my dry skin pilled off every time I reapplied.

    For books, I’ve read a lot of just okay stuff lately. The one book I’ve read recently that I liked is The Heart’s Invisible Furies. I’m currently reading I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai, who authored one of my all-time faves, The Great Believers. We’ve been watching The Bear on Hulu.

    Louise Penny’s books are excellent. Highly recommend. I love the world she created and I do suggest reading her Three Pines series in order. But I’m also definitely a suspense/mystery person.

    I’m slightly obsessed w/ Seth Meyers. He and his brother started a podcast, Family Trips, that I’m enjoying. And I always find his YouTube clips cheer me up. The husband and I both get a kick out of “Corrections.”

    Those are just a couple suggestions of things I like / am liking.

    We’re watching The Bear too. If it weren’t in Chicago, I’m not entirely sure I’d enjoy it as much.

    @ktfran Same! We just finished season one. I’d say at least half of the appeal to me is that it’s set in Chicago and about our food/restaurant scene, haha. I totally made chicken piccata recently because of the show.

    There’s some new Queer Eye to get caught up on. I always like that show.

    We’re three episodes into Season 2. Last night, they featured a couple of my good ol’ standbys, Avec and PQM, the former I hosted my 40th bday brunch and the later catered our rooftop wedding party. I’m super excited to see the episode that features Ever. I’m slightly obsessed with Duffy, even though I heard he doesn’t appear. The restaurant is gorgeous at least.

    I love The Bear. It’s funny, the first season was like, anxiety inducing with all the yelling and everything but now I’m in. Yes, chef.

    I loved the Great Believers, Copa.

    I used the supergoop every single face yesterday at the beach- I reapplied with the neutrogena zinc stick. My kids used a sheer dry touch mineral lotion for faces that is really good and that works like magic for faces. It doesn’t come off in the sea or sand. I have to use baby shampoo to get it off their faces at the end of the day.

    Thanks for all the well wishes, everyone.

    I LOVED The Great Believers. It, too, is set in Chicago and I liked all the local references. I’m usually more of a nonfiction fan, particularly memoirs, but The Great Believers had me in tears. If you liked that one, you’d probably also like The Heart’s Invisible Furies. Different, but similar flavor. Not as good, IMO, but still a worthwhile read.

    I listened to Spare on audiobook out of curiosity recently. I’m not into the royals, so surely not the target audience, but it was available on Libby and I was curious enough. I thought it was so boring! When he finally touches on whether the monarchy should continue, he lands on “IDK.” Like, sir. Unraveling your likely-complex thoughts on the subject would’ve been more interesting than the two short chapters dedicated to your frostbitten royal “todger.”

    OMG the yelling in the first season of The Bear. I fall asleep just about every time we try to watch a show together, and The Bear is no exception. The yelling kept disturbing my couch snoozes.
