Your Moment of Zen: Things Organized Neatly

Original image

Sometimes, when my life gets stressful, or I have so many things to do and my attention gets so fragmented that it's hard to know where to start, I just have to take a half-hour or so, breathe, and clean my house. Being in an organized space helps my brain feel organized -- and in just the same way, there's something soothing about looking at pictures on this Zenned-out new Tumblr site, Things Organized Neatly.

You can see things organized by type and function:

Things organized by size:

The yarn I’m using to knit my sweater. Before I dyed it, but after I unraveled it from the old thrift store sweater it once was.

Things lined up just right:

Things at nice right angles to one another:

And on and on. Now doesn't that feel better? Heck, I might make some of these my desktop wallpaper.

Fans of Broadway hit Hamilton will soon be able to dine like the Founding Fathers: As Eater reports, a new Alexander Hamilton-inspired cookbook is slated for release in fall 2017.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
