I hope everyone has a safe place to stay cool this weekend and into next week. Make sure you start drinking water early in the day to avoid any dehydration. If you’re able, your elderly neighbors and friends may appreciate a check-in over the next few days.

What to watch, listen to, read and eat this weekend
Watch: Get ready to dive into that sweet 90s nostalgia with the Baby-Sitters Club. The television adaption of the iconic pre-teen book series hit Netflix this weekend. I can’t wait to see a fresh take on Kristy, Claudia and the rest of the gang.
Listen: If you need to switch-up your playlist, check out our guide to 10 albums from Polaris nominees.
Read: I mentioned this book in a previous post but I’m finally reading Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld. This piece of fiction reimagines Hillary Clinton’s life had she broken up with Bill Clinton early on. Given everything happening in the world, it is a timely read. I don’t want to give anything away but I gasped at a plot twist half way through the book.
Eat: I’ve been really into getting my produce from Rochon Farms. I’ve been able to pick up salad mix, peppers, radishes and cucumbers for a fraction of what I would pay at the grocery store. Plus, that means a lot less time with the oven on in this heat! It’s been incredibly heartening to see the (physically distant) lines every time I’ve dropped by for some veggies.
