January State of the Union

What a difference a break can make, I was looking back at December's SOTU and I can feel how exhausted I was in my writing. And now after nearly 3 weeks off work and at home/in the city, one full week off the blog, and approaching 4 weeks without work travel I feel so much … Continue reading January State of the Union

Friday Favourites: Solo travel, serums, and in/out lists

I have been up north all week and I am so ready to get home. I'm tired, I miss my cat, my bed, and my Christmas decorations. I also broke both thumb nails this week and didn't bring any nail supplies and have just had to deal with them for the whole week. Which now … Continue reading Friday Favourites: Solo travel, serums, and in/out lists

Friday Favorites: Cozy Season

I experienced my first below -40 day, I think ever, and now all I want to do is curl up under blankets with hot chocolates, teas, and coffees, bowls of soup or pasta and nest. I saw a meme or quote, I'm not sure which it would be, that said "all the other mammals hibernate … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Cozy Season

Friday Favorites: 11/11/2022

I had every intention of writing this last night, but we didn't get back from our work trip until 9pm and it was such a long day that all I did when I got home was feed the cat, lie down on the couch for half an hour and go to bed. I do however … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 11/11/2022

October State of the Union

This post idea literally just occurred to me. I was thinking about how I DNFed (did not finish) the only book I attempted to read in the month. I think in the future I will combine all of monthly recap style posts, the monthly empties, the what I reads in..., the financial fitness check ins, … Continue reading October State of the Union

Friday Favourites: granola bars and Ohio??

This week is such a blur. I pet sat last weekend and left their house at 9 pm on Sunday night. Came home, meal prepped and packed, worked a full day at the office on Monday, flew north to work for the rest of the week in a northern community, been here all week trying … Continue reading Friday Favourites: granola bars and Ohio??

Friday Favorites: 06/09/22

It is crazy how much better I feel after a solid weekend out last weekend and good weather this week. I feel more alive than I have felt since basically before the pandemic started. I feel so happy for the first time in ages, I don't know, there was something about the human connection of … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 06/09/22

Friday Favorites: Time Off and New Curtains

I am taking today off from work! I'm driving down to Minneapolis (about 8 hours) for a concert on Saturday night! I am so excited, I'm going to wear cute clothes, wander around a city, use my passport!! I know I was literally just in a city but this weekend feels like a real trip, … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Time Off and New Curtains

Friday Favorites: News podcasts and Internet acquaintances

What a week, I don't think I have experienced a faster week in ages, Monday I flew to Sachigo Lake to help establish their emergency response to what I thought was a (what is now standard) COVID outbreak, but it ended up also being a mental health crisis and opioid epidemic crisis that had been … Continue reading Friday Favorites: News podcasts and Internet acquaintances

Friday Favorites: Afternoon breezes and afternoon tea

I don't know which of us is more excited that we can sometimes open the windows in the afternoon. I am still out of the house pet sitting, but I go home everyday to take care of my wee beast and I've been opening the windows to let the stale winter air out. This week … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Afternoon breezes and afternoon tea
