September Link List


I could just browse the Internet for hours on end, so many good things to read. Don’t you agree? Here are this month’s pickings.

Around the Interwebs

Climate change will force a new American migration, and we will see it in our life time. Scary.

Campsites around SF. Maybe we’ll go, sometime, when it’s safe again.

What coffee-brewing method  makes the best-tasting cup? (I knew the pour-over was up there!)

Can’t put your finger on how you feel? Maybe The Feelings Wheel can help.

How do you adjust to an ever-changing situation where the “new normal” is indefinite uncertainty?Your ‘Surge Capacity’ Is Depleted — It’s Why You Feel Awful

This is why I really don’t want to get this: What young, healthy people have to fear from Covid-19.

For the love of mail.

Why some Americans refuse to social distance and wear masks. “The resistance to wearing a mask is not about public health; it’s about politics. […] The pandemic arrived at just the wrong moment — amid toxic politics, incompetent leadership, and fraying social bonds.” The saddest statement there is.

Famous sayings that don’t mean what you think they mean.

The movements that betray who you are. This was super-interesting. 

Around the blogosphere

How to vote this fall. All you need to know to cast your ballot in (or before!) November.

Another dull quarantine weekend at home, Target, Chipotle, Home Depot, and our niece’s graduation party. Beware: satire, maybe. Chuckle and then cry, is what I did.

Gabrielle always tells it like it is. The consequences of your actions. 

Trader Joe’s Fall Foods. Are you excited to try all the new seasonal items? I am not into everything pumpkin, but the rustic apple tarte and pumpkin spice granola bark look good!


Papercut Halloween House Lanterns. Is it too early to start preparing for Halloween? Well, bookmark these for later.

Ombre Paper Mobile (so pretty!).

These are so cute: Macrame Jar Hangers.

For my runner friends

How easy should your easy runs be?, that is the question.

How to treat and prevent foot blisters

A timely read. Running in bad air quality and smoke. (I am opting for the spin bike right now.)


Mushroom & Spinach Breakfast Skillet. All the things I love.

We made egg noodles with an adapted version of this Mushroom & Lentil Ragù and I recommend it.

Creamy tomato & pepper pasta. Mmh, that looks delicious!

Share a good link with me in the comments!

  1. I’ve been drinking so much coffee since Lockdown started (drank mostly tea for over a decade) so I enjoyed that coffee article :) And your Insta stories with your coffee is always lovely to see.
    That spinach and mushroom breakfast skillet looks so delicious!

    1. Thank you. I am happy that people are enjoying my coffee posts on IG :)

      1. I also love your coffee Insta posts. They always make me so happy 😊 thanks so much for sharing these links—a lot of things here I’d love to read, like why TF wearing a mask is political, why even healthy people should fear Covid, and TJs fall foods 🍁

        1. Thanks so much, friend. I am glad people enjoy the links…and the Insta coffee stories LOL

  2. The Harvard Gazette piece on mask wearing/the US’s horrible response to covid was an interesting read. And the design person’s comments about not respecting Trump voters holds true for me, but I could never post that because most of my immediate family supports Trump. :( :( :( The Trump presidency and some of my family member’s disbelief in Covid has been really really hard on me. :( I just hope and pray that the Republican party returns to the days of McCain and the Bushes but it’s hard to envision that happening… we’ll see.

    1. I cannot imagine having friends and family that support Trump and I am sorry you have to deal with this :( It seems so blatantly obvious to me how he mismanaged everything about Covid and I am trying to understand how people can not see it or make excuses for him.

  3. That letter story had a wonderful sentence in there: “But every day there’s the possibility of arrival.” Isn’t it so true? I picked up the letter writing a bit more this year and I couldn’t be happier.
