new-to-me blog: so how was your day?
More Italy recaps to come. Meanwhile I'm desperately trying entertain my kids in the last few days before school starts, while we're all still jet-lagged and so sick of the pool and there are no good kid movies in the theaters. They desperately need structure. Seriously: Today they didn't even protest when I said we needed to go to the mall for a blazer (for Charlie; we have to go to a bat mitzvah next weekend) and fancy shoes (for Tessa; aforementioned bat mitzvah). Meanwhile, I got nothing. However, I did discover the most charming blog in my stolen moments at the computer. So, How Was Your Day? details the meals and banal daily practices of artistic, interesting people. In founder Jessica Murnane's words, the blog takes on this question: "How do the over-achieving few manage to do all that they do?" (That's a little lofty. I prefer the subtitle: "The Daily News From Your Latest Muse.") The layout is totally straightforward—there's nothing crazy going on here designwise—but the summaries of their regular habits and schedules will win you over. And you'll meet all sorts of cool and creative folks.
