Welcome to 5 on Friday, a little list of things I’m enjoying lately. I got this idea from Tim Ferris who sends out his 5 Bullet Friday posts to all his email subscribers and Laura Tremaine’s Secret Posts. If you’re interested you can check out Tim’s website at Tim.blog and Laura’s at 10thingstotellyou.com . I thought it would be fun to do a short and simple posts of things I’m enjoying lately. Every week you’ll find different content…could be books I’m reading, movies, tv, recipes, quotes, articles, household items etc….anything I’m enjoying to pass along in the hope that you might also find something you’d like.
How Writing to Do Lists Helps Your Brain I’m a list maker of all types. I have a bullet journal for longer lists including books I want to read and I have post it notes on my counter for daily things I need to do or pick up. I can’t live without post its! I’ve tried using my notes app but it doesn’t work for me, I need to be able to actually cross things off, that’s the best part of list making in my opinion.
TV Show I Love
Younger starring Hilary Duff, Sutton Foster, Debi Mazar, Peter Hermann is a show by Darren Star (hello Sex & the City) on TV Land and just finished it’s 5th season. It’ll be back for a 6th so you have time to binge before next summer! It’s set in the world of publishing in Manhattan and there’s drama, love, books, authors, scandal, friendship…basically everything. I highly recommend starting at the beginning or you’ll miss a lot.
Podcast I’m Enjoying
Currently Reading with Meredith Monday Schwartz and Kaytee Cobb. I recently discovered this podcast and I’ve already listened to all their episodes (except middle school reads). I’ve gotten some new to me book recommendations and I like that their excitement for books comes through. The format is great as well!
My Must Have for Sore Neck/Shoulders
Neck and Shoulder Heated Pain Relief WrapI use this neck wrap daily. It gets heated in the microwave and does wonders for tight or stiff neck and shoulder muscles. I have a lavender one which smells great
Book I Recently Read in One Sitting
One Day in December by Josie Silver. I wasn’t too crazy about this cover but the premise drew me in and I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down! I’ll review it closer to pub day but if you like romances and love stories set over years (think One Day and that type of structure) I think you’ll enjoy this. And it’s set in London…bonus!
Have a Great Weekend!
