Hello, Friends. How are you? And how was your week? Our week felt so steady and predictable and usual compared to last week. And it was great! A nice little window of calm. I tried hard to appreciate it, because this coming week will be different — I’ve got a work trip to New York on the schedule. And my weekend will mostly be prepping for that trip. Though I’m also hoping to have a movie date with Ben Blair — Ralph told us we must see Interstellar. How about you? What are you planning this weekend?

I’m off to run some errands, but before I head out, here are a few things I’ve wanted to share with you:

– The children in your life with autism will need something meaningful to do when they reach adulthood. This campaign aims to create a place where they can make a living doing something wonderful.

– A bird finds a book about itself.

– From a Rwandan dump to the halls of Harvard, an incredibly inspiring story. Thanks, Katie.

– How every conversation in a Facebook moms group goes. Seem familiar? Thanks, Heather.

– I loved your comments on the Introvert/Extrovert post. So much good stuff there! Thank you. Related, you might like 25 Struggles Only ENFPs Will Understand.

– Still not sure why this made me laugh so hard.

– Sweden is so good at recycling that it has actually run out of trash. Thanks, Linda.

– This is what your zip code says about you.

– Heartbreaking: Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

– I love Mr. Rogers.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
