Five Little Things
Five Little Things I loved the week of August 21, 2020: sweet figs, chocolate, a different kind of bloom, and more!
Happy Friday, everyone! It’s been a rough week here in California. The wildfires are devastating and while my family and I are thankfully safe, the air quality is really terrible. We may be sheltering in place already, but I do miss stepping outdoors — my daughter and I were forced to break our walking streak due to the smoke. We had 158 days of walks, rain or shine, during SIP!
Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:
I’ve been ordering lots of figs on my online grocery orders, but it wasn’t until this week that I finally got a batch of the sweetest specimens! Biting into them brought me back to the market in Nice!
2. A Different Kind of Bloom
Bloom on grapes are good!

Do you see a powdery-white coating on the grapes? That's bloom and it's good! Bloom is a naturally occurring substance that protects grapes from moisture loss and decay. So bloom = fresh!

Yes, I love chocolate. But today I’m talking about Chocolate, the Korean drama series currently on Netflix. It’s made for food lovers, with beautiful cooking scenes and mouthwatering food. I just love how the food is a character in and of itself!
4. Museums Reopening
It made me smile to hear that NYC will be reopening their museums. Even if I”m far away, I’m thankful for that glimmer of hope!
My daughter is channeling all her energy and talents into a future in theatre, so this lesson in perseverance from Bryce Dallas Howard rings true, but it’s a good lesson for all of us, no matter our endeavors.
As a little bonus, BTS dropped a new song and it’s just instant happy! If you need a pick me up, crank it up – you’ll be dancing in no time!
Stay joyful and keep dancing!
