5 Things: Actually Greek edition

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week and are possibly looking forward to some long weekend fun... or sleep. Whatever applies best to your perception of fun. Well, I found a few things to get you through your Friday (and possibly help with your Memorial Day BBQ). Check it out:

1) In honor of Red Nose Day it seemed appropriate to share this Love Actually 2 trailer. It's pretty cute even though, sadly, Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson are not present (one for obvious reasons). Hope it gives you a smile. :)

2) You probably know by now that I fancy myself a bit of an amateur artist. (Sometimes more successful than others.) Well, Ivy Newport is a legit artist with a super cool class (now open!) called "Lovely Dancer." It's a meditation on Degas and his ballet dancers. Cannot wait to begin!

3) These Greek Turkey Burgers are a great, healthy addition to your Memorial Day cookout. They are also just delish! A little variation is to add a dash of lemon juice and mint to the mix. You won't be disappointed. And Greek Yogurt with dill is awesome. I made chicken salad with it, too!

4) And here's a cautionary tale about making certain you text the right person. Considering that I get a long of wrong numbers, I'm getting some ideas. Hmmm...

5) If you, too, like to write I highly recommend one of the many text to speech apps. It's not perfect but it can be a great way to hear your writing read aloud (sometimes with proper pronunciation, sometimes not so much) and get the gist of how to shape the flow. It's turned into a very handy writing tool!

Okay, that's all for now. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! And, please, keep the folks of Manchester and all those affected in your thoughts and prayers.
