23 Things This Week Vol. 13/2020

How has your week been? I truly hope everyone is being as safe as they can possibly be. The news this week has been horrific … but we’re keeping on keeping on as they say. So in that spirit, here’s what I checked out on the interwebz this week – what to read, watch, cook, and do at home.

To Read

spring reads

ONE+ The Social Distance Mega List of What to Read: Lists of Lists has you covered with reading recommendations for … ever!

TWO+ But just in case you need more check out this Massive List of End-of-Days Books to Read During the Pandemic and Eight Spring Horror Titles To Scare Your (Winter) Socks Off.

THREE+ Plus these 36 Highly Popular Audiobooks if listening to books is more your jam right now.

FOUR+ Or maybe these 33 of the Best Book Podcasts for All Genres might be more your thing.

FIVE+ Where are you getting books from these days? Here are 8 solutions if you’re stuck at home with no books to read.

SIX+ On the more social side of things, We Are Bookish lists some virtual events with authors and book conventions happening online over the next few months.

SEVEN+ And although Spring has just started (here in the US) … let’s plan ahead with The most anticipated books of summer 2020.

EIGHT+ Speaking of planning for the future – check out these 8 Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books to Read (or Re-Read) Before Their Adaptations Hit the Screen.

To Watch

NINE+ TV Tuesday: Spring 2020 Preview … are you watching any of these shows?

TEN+ I’ve seen almost all of the 8 TV Shows to Watch if You Loved “You” and they’re guhhhddd!

ELEVEN+ There’s a ton of recommendations in Best TV and Netflix Series and What to Watch on TV Right Now.

To Organize & Be Productive

Coach Purse and Phone

TWELVE+ I watched 15 Tiny Ways to Get Your Life Together (Youtube) earlier this week and was reminded about using WD-40 for squeaky doors. I thought ALL the doors in our house have been squeaky since we moved in 3 years ago. Made my husband do it a few days ago – no more squeak!

THIRTEEN+ I already use a few of these 13 Simple Tasks You Can Do to Make Life Easier – and they really do make life just a little bit less chaotic.

FOURTEEN+ 41 Best Apps to Keep you Busy FOREVER in 2020 … I’m still going through the list. Any apps you’d recommend?

FIFTEEN+ Financial Date Night Completely Changed Our Relationship … ok – maybe not a date night, but now that the hubs and I are doing more planning together – instead of one person taking care of it all, we’re in such a better place.

SIXTEEN+ Here’s my Work Planner Setup for 2020

At Home

SEVENTEEN+ A Spring Home Maintenance To-Do List … timely reminder of things to do especially now that many of us are home more.

EIGHTEEN+ I’m finally going to try my hand at a small vegetable garden this year, so The ten best things to plant in April is a nice resource – I’m doing lettuce and carrots.

NINETEEN+ Need some home workouts – Best At-Home Workouts To Try During The Quarantine and How to Stay in Shape Without Leaving the House have got you covered.

TWENTY+ Strava exercise challenges are also away to keep the exercise motivation going – I’ve joined a few for April.

TWENTY-ONE+ I’ve switched to monthly meal planning to reduce the number of times we go to the supermarket, and after being inspired by Kim’s How I Meal Plan for An Entire Year All At Once. A few new recipes on next month’s list came from 23 Pantry Recipes for when you don’t want to (or can’t) Leave your House.

TWENTY-TWO+ Also bookmarked Healthy Pantry and Freezer-Friendly Recipes to try some of these recipes later.

TWENTY-THREE+ – March Favorites

What have you done a lot more of this month than in the past – reading, watching tv, playing games, cooking, cleaning, organizing?
