It’s going to be a hot one this weekend, and if I could be doing anything, it would be hiking in the mountains. Alas, other duties are calling, but we will get outdoors for some good food and time in nature–maybe strawberry picking, a wildflower hike, and a picnic in the UC Davis Arboretum.
In the next few weeks, I’ll be bringing you more local travel ideas as well as a new series of lifestyle posts inspired by what we like to do when we’re at home…things like worm composting and growing micro-greens.
Only four more weeks until summer vacation and our trip to Hawaii! As always, here are some of my favorite links from this week for your weekend reading:
