The Weekend Edit: March 26, 2021
Hello, hello! It’s the weekend! I got my second Covid shot yesterday. I’m so happy to be fully vaccinated and I can’t wait for my husband’s turn! He is the only adult left in both of our families to get his shot. Come on, Washington! Open up the next phase!
In other news, here are some articles that piqued my interest this week for your weekend enjoyment.
Recipe of the Week:
Soft Peanut Butter Cookies: I made these for my cousin’s birthday this week. Turns out peanut butter cookies are his favorite! They are not fancy, but they are delicious!
Joke of the Week:
Why can’t dinosaurs clap their hands?
Because they’re dead.
A Few Articles From Around the Web:

Meghan Markle Didn’t Do the Work: Like the rest of the world, I got caught up in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah. I deeply empathized with Meghan and the trauma she experienced.

Some people are lying to get the vaccine, and it’s testing their friendships: This is just another wrinkle in the survival of friendships this past year.

Personally, I’m trying not to cancel anyone by practicing Stephen Covey’s Habit #5: “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” It’s not easy to do, but hopefully it will ensure I don’t become hardened to others who don’t think like me.
Happy weekend! Enjoy this new season.
