Have a Lovely Weekend. | A Cup of Jo

What are you as much as this weekend? I not too long ago remembered this very low-key summer season guidelines, and I’m excited to do it this season — together with hanging out inside and never feeling unhealthy about it:) Hope you could have a good one, and listed here are a few enjoyable hyperlinks from across the net…

Juneteenth is now a federal vacation. (New York Times)

Found! The finest last-minute Father’s Day reward.

Rose Matafeo — creator, author and star of Starstruck — talks about writing her romcom script: “You know what’s so fun is how many times it felt sick to write, ‘Tom laughs.’ Like, ‘Tom laughs at Jessie.’ Then you realize, ‘Damn, I never see a guy laugh at a girl in a rom-com.’ It’s always like, ‘You’re ridiculous,’ or like, ‘Oh you.’ And I think it feels sick to write a character having to laugh at your jokes, particularly when you’re in the show, but it works… I just don’t know why straight men don’t understand that the hottest thing you can do is laugh at a woman. It’s just so easy.” (New York Magazine)

The most stunning locations in Scandinavia. (Atlantic Ocean Road!!!)

I’m LOVING this summer season spray.

“Why I’m selling my catalog of Dad Jokes.”

What to say in case your child factors out that somebody is fats.

“I now know the secret to the quiet mind. I wish I’d never learned it.” (The Atlantic)

My favourite summer season pajamas.

I like being a mother, however this made me giggle out loud.

Fellow New Yorkers: the brand new Winner Bakery in Park Slope is wildly scrumptious. Get their baguette and eat it with delicate butter and thank me later.

Plus, three reader feedback:

Says Lindsay on 13 readers share their reunion pictures: “Just sitting here reading this and (happy) sobbing. Wow! Side note: Every person I’ve talked to this week is exhausted and feeling beyond burnt out. Be gentle with yourselves out there, everyone. Seems as we try to go back to ‘normal life’ a lot of feelings we couldn’t process this past year (because we were in survival mode) are coming to a head.”

Say Kate on coming house meals: “My mom comes from a long line of women who can’t cook, which used to be a bummer (canned green beans, boiled; chicken pot pie with NO SALT or sauce inside). I explicitly remember complaining at my grandma’s house after being given iceberg lettuce with no dressing and overcooked steak with ketchup for dinner, she said: ‘I didn’t get a graduate degree in cooking’ (she got two masters degrees in the 50s?! While married with two young kids?!). Then it dawned on me: they can’t cook *by design*. My mom, her mom, and my great grandma all gave themselves permission *not to do domestic things*, which in their time was really liberating. So, when I go home I look forward to going out for Mexican food at ‘our spot.’ ”

Says Colleen on what are your favourite child names: “After years of infertility and three losses in the isolation of 2020, we are expecting our firstborn in late September. His name will be Umeed Neenad. Umeed means ‘hope’ and Neenad means ‘sound of the celebration.’ ”
