For Your Weekend

Edwards Crossing swim hole Nevada City

What are you up to this weekend? We got back from our first family camping trip on Wednesday, and I’m happy to share that it was a success! We spent one afternoon in the cold, clear swim holes of the South Yuba River (above), the highlight of the trip besides the s’mores, of course. After a late night absorbing the healthcare vote news and too much news checking today, I’m going to unplug a bit this weekend and finish the big cleanout of my kids’ stuff. We’ll drop off a car load of clothes, toys, books, etc. at a charity for young mothers in crisis — a great choice if you’re looking to pass on your kids’ or your own items.

My picks of fun and useful links are below. Have a restful weekend. xo

  • Wait, films “expire” on Netflix? OMG, I am so out of the loop!

    That photo of the river looks so enticing right now, I cannot tell you! We’ve had the air on since this morning as it’s so humid (for LA) UGH!!

    You’ve also reminded me I have two bags of stuff to donate that I’ve been driving around in my car for about 2 weeks. Why oh why are little things such a pain?
