This has been a crazy busy week. Alexa has been up to her neck in bridesmaids duties. And I have been in one of those so busy but I don’t know why sort of weeks. Well, truthfully I think a lot of my “business” is simply working longer hours. Suddenly there is a surge in frame jobs coming in, which is great. One cool thing that come in were Hardy Boys original paintings. They were from the books rereleases from the 90s. We got the painting from Sky Sabotage and The Voodoo Plot. The customer says he has a bunch of paintings he bought and never framed, so that is something I am looking forward to at work.
I think since I’ve been so busy I think I picked out more fun reads and such for the blog. I hope it cheers you guys up.

I am thinking about jackfruit a lot lately, and this jackfruit sandwich with tahini slaw looks bitchin.
This looks so yummy, and I am not the type of person who particularly likes making their own nut butters.
These chalkboard drawings are a lovely little slice of Americana.
I need to get that “Life…uh…finds a way” brooch.
Eat Your Kimchi really cheered me up with their new pantyhose challenge game.
Kaylah captures some great photos from a party supply rental warehouse. It really is haunting and a great visual of the worthlessness of our material crap.
I love when I find articles defending the almond industry. Yes they suck up lots of water, but cows use lots more from the food they eat.
This is an old article but a good one, 5 reasons for why animal activism is a feminist issue.
Ever hear people say veganism is white? I never fully thought that. Working at Animo I remember there being a few black vegan customers, which made me wonder why aren’t there more black vegans in the media? Well, there is a great post with 100 Black Vegans, helping bring some of these people out and in the public. I am surprised how many of the people are on the list have restaurants! So many I now would love to check out in a road trip.
