Are you experiencing nice weather this week? I am. I’m in the Midwest and the weather is warm… creepily warm. Now, don’t get me wrong — I enjoy writing with the windows open — but I would rather be partaking in some normal, super-cold January weather. Anyhow, it’s time for more important things than weather — it’s Friday! This means it’s time for From Our Friends, OA’s weekly roundup of our favorite posts, published by our friends and partners around the web.
This week’s post has a link to a killer baked tofu recipe, a cool article about seeds, a great DIY Valentine tutorial and cat toy tutorial, and a post about interesting chicken soups. Also: A post that will influence you to get on your feet and an article about finding kindness.
