Below are options for your weekend…

Obviously, don’t go anywhere.

It’s all a bunch of Sundays now. At least that’s what it feels like to me. I’m doing laundry, cooking, entertaining my toddler, eking in some work here and there.

So far, I’ve made banana bread, used my slow cooker three separate times (homemade applesauce, pork and sauerkraut, Tuscan Bean Lemon Kale Soup).

I’ve also written a couple posts on working from home because I’ve been doing it for more than eight years. Check ’em.

It’s a good time to check-up on your houseplants or order some garden supplies. Both Ashcombe and Highland Gardens will be open in limited capacity and will provide delivery or curbside service.

Feel like shopping? Lots of local vendors have an online shop (or opened one) and would love your support. I love love love Stash Vintage (see deals below) and Fennec Design, both of whom I’ve purchased lots of goodies from.

If you’re thinking about selling your own goods, my girl Betsy is sharing tips for building your own Poshmark (or other) closet on her personal IG. Follow her here.
