A Few Favorites 8.25

Here's what I'm currently really, really liking.

1. This Upcycled Computer Monitor Cat Bed is super cute!  I found it on Etsy, and while it's super cute, it's out of my price range.  It makes me want to keep my eyes out for an old iMac though and try for a DIY version.  I could see both my cats loving this.

2. I love this print, and it's kind of snarky, but true, People will kill you over time, and how they'll kill you is with tiny, harmless phrases like "Be realistic".  Most people don't do this on purpose, but they unintentionally give you a look or ask questions about your reasons or goals for a project that make you start to doubt yourself.  I searched high and low for the source of this Dylan Moran (who is a comedian) quote, but couldn't track it to it's origins.  I think I would love a big print of this for in my office.

3.  The Civil Wars new album is awesome!  I have been listening to it for hours on end.  I wasn't a huge fan after their first release, but this one has bumped them way up on my like list.  If you have Spotify, go listen to it now.  I always say I don't like country, but there's a definite country vibe to their music.  There's a touch of  Avett Brothers, Ray LaMontagne, and Mindy Smith all rolled up into one here.  "The One that Got Away" and "Eavesdrop" are probably my two favorite tracks, but the whole album is great!

4.  Finally, zucchini season is in full swing, so of course that means zucchini bread!  This cinnamon zucchini bread recipe is yummy, moist, and makes two big loaves.  I tried it out and it's really good, so if you're being inundated with squash, you can use up some of them to make this tasty bread.  Put a little soft butter on it and you're good to go.

Have a good Sunday!
