I’m learning pretty quickly, with week after week of my wrap-ups beginning with some form of “oh my goodness, this week was crazy!” that apparently, my life’s baseline is pretty chaotic to begin with. I’d be willing to bet a lot of people feel that way. I think I’m going to try to embrace the chaos, find the order in the chaos, be one with the chaos. I’ll let you know how it goes.

For now, what I have for you, are links. Wonderful links. Ambitious links. I hope you like them, and I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful holiday weekend (or regular weekend, if you’re not in the States)!

This Week on Floptimism:

2 Thoughts on “Weekend Wrap-Up: Feeling Zen

  1. Isn’t it funny that we both made Turkey and Black Bean burgers last week? I somehow didn’t even see that you had done them until I read this post, lol. And thanks for linking to my pasta recipe!

    • It is! I actually made the burgers a while back – you’re much better than I am at getting your recipes up soon after you make them. I have a back-log of recipes to write about and try to vary sweet and savory, so some of my recipes wind up getting ignored for a pretty long time.
