The Monk and the Fly
Whatever your 'fly' is today, don't let it distract you from the task at hand. 
Practicing Kindness
Plant some seeds today – as in literal seeds (yum vegetables), or seeds of ideas that you want to grow. Whichever ones you decide to sow, do so with intention. (Happy belated Earth Day :))
I haven't tried this one yet because I need Leah's help, but, I've been on a mushroom kick lately and these porcini popovers look absolutely divine. I'll let you know how they turn out. 
Art I Like 
Shaina McCoy is a Minneapolis-based visual artist. Her style is both refreshing and timeless. With oil paint as her standard medium, Shaina's paintings find life not only in subject matter and rich colors, but also in dashing textures. Check out her website or her IG to oogle over her art. (Shout out Marge for putting me on!)
A Song I Like

LION BABE dropped their second album, Cosmic Wind, last month and it's a whole bop. So smooth, so funky – the whole album goes.  I've been diggin' the tracks "Into Me" and "When I Told You I Loved You," so give those a spin, but then, as I often suggest, check out the whole project. 
 Why did the butcher work extra hours at the shop? To make ends meat.
