Unwind This Way

I’ve spent the long weekend out visiting my mom in Tucson. A hidden gem of being an almost empty nester is the freedom to spend solo time with your mom again, and it was a lovely visit. We were stationed here in the mid-90s and I had forgotten how blue blue blue the skies are.

Our trip to the airport Monday morning, however, was a little fraught - road construction required a detour, we got “tapped” by an unrepentant driver at an intersection requiring we get out of the car and inspect for damage, and I managed to splotch coffee all down the front of my shirt (not caused by the tap). My ability to spill out of no-spill cups is amazing. Really NBD in the great scheme of things, but still.

If you are having one of those days, I have three recommendations to soothe the soul.

Next in Fashion on Netflix - like Project Runway crossed with the Great British Bake Off. It's hosted by Alexa Chung and Tan France who are delightful.

Table Manners with Jessie Ware podcast. Ware and her mom serve a home cooked meal to a guest and their relaxing chat about their lives, favorite foods and favorite restaurants is amazing. They ask every guest what would be their last meal, "starter, main and pud." The hosts are British so if you are an anglophile at all this is for you. The link points to Apple Podcasts but it's available on most podcast apps.

And last but not least, give a listen to this song my son introduced me to on our drive home from the airport, Sunday Best by Surfaces. Ahhhhhh.
