Good morning and happy Sunday. Hope you’re having a great weekend. I’m going to keep things short because I’m away with my family. Two of my cousins welcomed babies this last year, and one of them is having a christening this weekend. I haven’t seen some of my relatives in a few years, and it’s crazy to think how much has changed. I mean, babies, for one. Or two. Anyway.

Here are a few small good things from the week: 

*Speaking of family, I always say that my dad taught me my best swear words. This article explains how these choice statements may actually have a purpose.

*The 2015 Hater’s Guide to the Williams Sonoma Catalog. So much yes.

*Thursday, I had lunch with one of my lady-friends at Kefi on the Upper West Side. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area, and I don’t go nearly enough. I ordered the salad of bitter greens and orange.

and the grilled octopus appetizer.

Hit. The. Spot.

It’s probably weird that octopus is a food I legitimately crave, but I’m too old to care what’s weird and what isn’t. I mean, I’m legit excited about my new stove. This is probably sad, but again—I don’t care about that either.

*I feel like such a cheeseball, but I can’t stop listening to this Zombie’s song for some reason. Why oh why oh why? I think I went through this last December. Must be that whole “new year” thing. Other songs on repeat: The Kinks’ “This Time Tomorrow” and Elton John’s “Rocket Man.” Sorry, neighbors, about the recent singalong/clean-a-thons over here. Burning out the fuse up here alone is basically my life, a lot of the time, so yeah…

*Speaking of a new year, I’ve been planning a bunch of 2016 projects and events. I’m excited about the coming year, though I definitely still plan to enjoy what’s left of this one.
