I spent a wonderful weekend in Washington D.C., one of my favorite cities, visiting one of my sons and seeing Monticello for the first time. Now that I’m home, I’m looking forward to the warm weather coming to Wisconsin later this week. If you need a little break this week, check out my favorite procrastination links from around the web…
I posted this evocative family photo on Instagram this week and it garnered a lot of attention. I even made a new friend in Hamadan, Iran. Not sure if she's my relative or not. Still trying to figure that out!
Hoping to make these tomorrow in my son's Nintendo 64-sized kitchen.
Your giggle of the day: thirty seconds of total yumminess!

All the social influencers are talking about this story about Instagram.
Unbelievable that this room was a field hospital during WWII.
More on the Met Gala and the fine line between "camp" and tacky. After reading that essay, I came across this Colorado retreat, which I thought illustrated that point exactly, as imho, it crossed the line into tacky. On the other hand, if it was a boutique hotel and not a private residence, I would have loved it. Context is everything.
Antique of the Week: WOW! I'm not a fine jewelry kinda woman but WOW!
