EATING: Strawberries. Lots and lots of strawberries. This week I picked 12 pounds of berries at a farm in Illinois. Since then I've been mixing these red jewels into my oatmeal, making ridiculously good milkshakes, smothering them with greek yogurt, and dreaming of delicate strawberry galettes. Hopefully I'll still have enough left to make my favorite jam.

EXCITED FOR: Pokey LaFarge! Actually this weekend is going to be jam packed with live music. Pokey kicks it all off tonight at the Casa Loma Ballroom followed by the Riverfront Times Music showcase, featuring 50+ local bands. Which basically means the summer of outdoor concerts has officially arrived.

READING: My book club just selected this collection of short stories to read for June. In addition, Gail suggested I read Love with a Chance of Drowning. Both promise to be excellent reads.

MAKING: Now that I've already made my awesome summer music swap, I've turned my attention to some crafty creations. In anticipation of hosting a summer ice cream and Popsicle party I've started making these colorful paper lanterns. (Okay, I've only bought the fancy paper with which to make them, but hey, it's a start.)

WATCHING: This fascinating TED talk is dead-on. I wish we had more conversations like this. Honest thoughtful discussions about desire, relationships, and the dichotomy between the two. The entire talk is brilliant, but I especially liked the last three minutes.

Happy weekend!
