Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Welcome welcome! How are we this week?

My partner went on a week-long work trip and has come back with a nasty sickness. The sounds they make in the middle of the night as they’re hacking up something in their body is truly the stuff of nightmares.

And, considering that all the menthol cough drops have been sold out everywhere, I’m going to assume it’s going around. Be well out there everyone!

I made them some homemade chicken noodle soup, using some store bought rotisserie, and it was so freakin’ good. I used this recipe.

In more positive award news, Vashti Harrison became the first Black woman to win the Caldecott Medal!

Hunger Games fans! An illustrated edition is set to be released this year. Thanks to Heather S. for sending this one in!

What timing as Emily Nagoski is our guest for this week’s podcast episode, which is out 600th!

Stephanie sent in this YouTube video. They say:

I have spent an unusual amount of time thinking about the lighting of scenes in historicals. Particularly how characters can always see someone’s eyes “flash” when there’s only one lit candle in the room! This video describing lighting and candles in 17th and 18th century England cleared a lot up for me. Now I just need a rebel character who illegally made their own candles!

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
