Fall is Here! And So Is My September Wrap Up!

Fall is Here! And So Is My September Wrap Up!

Posted October 5, 2020 in Checking In // 0 Comments

Hello beautiful people, and happy September?  I LOVE this time of year!  Since we didn’t go on any vacations this year, I saved up my precious paid-time-off and put it all into the fall because there’s no time I’d rather sleep in and linger lazily outdoors.  Summer is a little too warm for my comfort – but autumn?  Autumn in New England is one of the most beautiful things. And with the changing leaves and the smell of backyard campfires in the air, I’m doing my absolute best to remain positive.  The loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg hit me hard […]

So Long Sweet Summer – My August Wrap Up

So Long Sweet Summer – My August Wrap Up

Posted September 7, 2020 in Checking In // 0 Comments

I cannot tell you all how grateful I am that the heat has finally broken here in New England.  In line with the coming storm season, we’ve had either sunny days or massive thunderstorms and nothing in between, and I am LIVING for it.  I love thunderstorm season – there’s something to that electricity that makes me feel so alive. Also, feeling grateful because a massive might-as-well-be-a-whole-tree branch missed falling on our house by about six feet.  With a little help from the wind we avoided some serious damage – the thing took down all the saplings in its wake […]

Here we are everyone, in the first days of August, the summer mostly over.  I guess one of the good things about 2020 is that it’s really flying by.  I didn’t really expect that because … well … we’re all stuck at home.  Or at least, I am!  The United States has honestly been atrocious with handling COVID-19.  There are “guidelines” in place, but only about half the citizens I’ve seen out and about actually follow them.  … It’s so basic y’all! *huff puff* ANYWAY. Still, a lot of positive movement this summer.  Let’s just dig in and I’ll tell you […]

Arrest The Cops Who Murdered Breonna Taylor… Also, My June 2020 Wrap Up

Arrest The Cops Who Murdered Breonna Taylor… Also, My June 2020 Wrap Up

Posted July 6, 2020 in Checking In // 0 Comments

Hi everyone. I do just want to take a sec and address the title of this post, because it’s been months and the cops who killed her have not been brought to justice.  Her family continues to suffer. If you haven’t already signed the petition for Breonna, please take a second to do so now. Additionally, if you are able to contribute, please consider donating to her family’s GoFundMe.  Every dollar makes a difference, and money in this fund not only supports her family but also helps pay for the legal fees incurred in continuing to fight for justice for […]

Finding My “New Normal” – The May 2020 Wrap Up

Finding My “New Normal” – The May 2020 Wrap Up

Posted June 8, 2020 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone and happy… June 8th! I thought about dropping this wrap up last Monday, but I wanted to give myself a little extra time to get my thoughts together as I usually write these posts the weekend before dropping them and who knows!  I may have finished an amazing book on May 31st! I’ve been personally doing a *little* better these days, and I think that comes with a better level of certainty and of course, more sunshine.  Like, literal sunshine.  I don’t do well in the spring.  While the world is still struggling, at least the outline […]
