Happy long weekend everyone, we have a real confluence of Abrahamic religious holidays this weekend, so I hope you are getting to spend some time with your loved ones if you can, or just enjoying the long weekend. I was hoping to use Friday to get all my chores done since everything would be closed … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: 04/16/22

This year feels like one of the longest years I have ever experienced (nearly as long as this blog post OMG). I saw a meme Tuesday that said that the Bernie mittens meme was only 11 months ago, and it feels like that's a lifetime ago, but also yesterday at the same time. I feel … Continue reading Best of 2021 – Media: Music, TV, Movies, Podcasts, Content Creators
October in Review
October was a surprisingly great month. I am really starting to feel settled here and like I am building a community here. It was a really good feeling to have social plans again. It just felt good to be around people outside of work. I have been saying for months that I was going to … Continue reading October in Review
This morning is the first sunny day here in like 9 days and I am loving it so much. It's supposed to get grey and start raining again this afternoon, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Short weeks sometimes feel so much longer than normal 5-day work weeks because you have so much to … Continue reading Saturday Scroll
Saturday (scratch that) Sunday Scroll
We're back to this on Saturday, for now at least (well that was the plan, I had no wifi Friday night and all day Saturday). I wanted to do a candle round-up for Wednesday, because I'm running low on candles and there's something about being cozy for fall and burning candles. I have been dreaming … Continue reading Saturday (scratch that) Sunday Scroll
Mid-Week Procrastination: WFH, #FreeBritney, and skin care
These are back, it only took a couple weeks, but I've decided I miss these in the middle of the week. I love these so much, a Wednesday pick-me-up, a booster to get through the week. Also, knowing I was doing this, I didn't publish on Saturday, so we have a week and a half … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination: WFH, #FreeBritney, and skin care
Happy weekend everyone! I am tackling Kitchen Week from Go Clean Co.'s Fall Cleaning Challenge. I may have to buy some paper towel for it, which I literally have not bought a roll of paper towel in years, I generally use reusable rags, but if my oven is as dirty as the ones on @GoCleanCo … Continue reading Saturday Scroll
Saturday Scroll: US Open, Beyoncé, star-crossed, and the Met Gala
I got to do in-person work yesterday! It was thrilling, I'm also exhausted. The most tired I have been in ages. My organization has two hostels that they operate in town right next to the hospital for people who are coming down from remote communities for health care treatment and yesterday was World Suicide Awareness … Continue reading Saturday Scroll: US Open, Beyoncé, star-crossed, and the Met Gala
Mid-Week Procrastination: Sad/Mad Girl Fall, Back to School, and back pain.
This week has been a struggle. I pulled a muscle in my low back exercising on Sunday evening and good Lord. I can barely move. It is definitely better today (Tuesday at time of writing) than it was Sunday evening and Monday, but I'm hobbling around my apartment essentially bent in half. I had to … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination: Sad/Mad Girl Fall, Back to School, and back pain.
This was a big month for using stuff up. Some of it makes sense, a few things I have been using since last November and some were purchases I had to make because I haven't yet got used to having to be prepared and planning ahead to avoid using plastic/packaged products. This is a great … Continue reading July Empties
