4-Hour Workweek: The End of Time Management

I’m re-reading Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Workweek, a book that first caught my attention and imagination when I was in high school, over a decade ago. Now, I’m going through the book again at the age of 26– and trying to turn ideas into action. I’ve…

Cold Stratifying Peach, Nectarine and Cherry Seeds for Planting

Cold Stratifying Peach, Nectarine and Cherry Seeds for Planting

This summer we had some amazing stone fruit. U-pick peaches and nectarines we picked with Matt’s grandma, and cherries purchased from the store. I wanted to grow some fruit trees from the pits. Fruit trees start small and don’t produce for at least 3 or…

Better Vacation Choices

Better Vacation Choices

A weekend trip, or camping gear? I’ve been thinking hard about where to spend my recreation dollars this fall. I have a Southwest Companion Pass expiring this year, and Matt and I have been talking about taking a short trip somewhere in the US this…

Lavender is currently in full bloom in Berkeley. It’s on every other street, and if you walk by on a warm day you’ll catch a whiff of the sweet, floral perfume. Lavender is a perennial (planted once, it blooms year after year) and yet this…

Denim Repairs: Visible Mending with Embroidery Thread

Denim Repairs: Visible Mending with Embroidery Thread

I love the look of artful visible mending on clothes. The back pocket on an old pair of jeans got snagged a few months ago, leaving a quarter-inch hole that let underwear show through. Instead of tossing the pair (what I would have done in…

Rothy’s: One Week In

Rothy’s: One Week In

I recently dropped some cash on a pair of Rothy’s flats. I never thought I’d spend $125 on a single pair of flats, but Rothy’s made some big promises– stylish, comfortable, durable, and made from recycled materials. I first heard about Rothy’s a couple of…
