This beautiful photo series show a wolf and bear are the best of friends. I love reading stories of interspecies friendships, it shows how our need for connection and companionship is present in all living things.
Had a rough day, and it’s 4 p.m. and you’re ready to just throw in the towel and watch Netflix until bedtime? Today is not over yet.
How the Do What You Love movement for work isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. A very interesting article about how DWYL is overworking more people and paying them less. I had such conflicting thoughts when I read this!
And the winner of the amazing Blue Sky Alpacas Royal Petites Babies kit is…… Bonnie, who chose Emilie the elephant! Congratulations, Bonnie! I’ll send you an email to get your address.
I’ve only recently heard about a California sandwich, and I’m totally on board- so fresh, so tasty, and so healthy! Can all my work lunches be this awesome? Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.

I’m a fan of all the great techniques on TECHknitting, and this is a great on for a faux Latvian braid effect, applied to stockinette with a crochet hook. What I love about this technique is that you don’t have to decide to do it while you are knitting, you can easily add it on as a decorative detail afterwards.

In the last weeks of summer, wouldn’t it be great to host a backyard dinner party? Oven baked pizzas, blooms from the garden, some candles…. we’ve got to make the most of the good weather while it’s still here, right? Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! We’re scheduled to have beautiful weather here, and I’m hoping to spend lots of time outside, soaking it all up. How about you? What have you got going on this weekend?
