Spicy Caipirinhas (& Friday Links)

What are your plans for the weekend? We’re going to Skyler’s school picnic this afternoon—she’s been counting down the days!—and then driving up to the cabin tonight for some fresh, mountain air! And then, of course, we’ll be back in time to catch the Long Night… I’ll be watching Sunday’s Game of Thrones through my fingers, no doubt.

Some links of note for the weekend:
