Something to cool you off: We’re living vicariously through this pup.
Something to savor: DIY popsicles for the dog days of summer.
Something to showcase your craft skills: These snakes are a perfect use for all those extra paper plates collecting dust in your cabinet.
Something to watch with our kids: Remembering John Lewis with this rap performed by ninth grader Jaden.
Something to read and reflect on: The joys, history, and magic of game-songs passed down by Black girls. (NYT)
Something to stay up ‘til dawn for: Taste the Nation is “SO good and explores what it means to be American.” (Thanks for the rec, Tiff!)
Something to bring you joy: Giving renewed meaning to “I’ll eat you up, I love you so.”
Something to make you nostalgic for museums: Behold this art and perhaps more awe-inspiring, the unlikely artist.
Something our Slack channel went nuts for: Swap windows with people all over the world.
