What are you up to this weekend? Ours is looking pretty quiet so I’m hoping to live vicariously through you.
Often on weekends, I like to share things I found interesting or entertaining around the web. Here are a few things I saved to share with you here.
A 100-Year-Old Cottage on the Mississippi Coast. All of the warm woods in this home give it an old school feel, like it could have been your grandparents’ cottage.
We made this roasted potato salad while at the lake two weeks ago and it was a hit. (FYI, this is served warm so I consider it more a side dish than a salad, but either way, it’s delicious.)
19 Facts About the 19th Amendment on its 100th Anniversary There’s so much here I didn’t realize (as in most of it) including several ways in which the fight for women’s rights overlapped with the fight for racial equality.
Unread Books Make You Smarter. I’ve shared this link before but I thought it was worth sharing again, especially for those of us who like having lots of books around. From the (very short) article: “They broadened his vision and perspective – instead of being content with the knowledge he already possessed, Eco wanted each unread book to motivate him to continue to learn, grow, and expand his mind.”
Here are some notable books that are Kindle Deals at the time I’m writing this.

To the Stars Through Difficulties by Romalyn Tilghman. Three women arrive in New Hope, KS at the same time, but for different reasons, and embark on a project inspired by the town’s history. I read and enjoyed this book last year; you can read my mini-review here.
A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams. 1938 Rhode Island. A hurricane is approaching. New York socialite Lily is summering where she has since childhood when her former best friend and former fiancé show up. I snapped this one up for some escapist summer reading.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
