Happy Wednesday everyone. I don’t like to think of it as Hump Day. I think it’s the Peak of the Week!! I’m sharing things piquing my interest on this special day!!
Fall Aspen Branches
I received my fall leaves in from my Amazon finds. I love how they turned out. Out with my favorite lemons and in with my new fall leaves. You can find these beautiful leaves HERE.
Mitch Albom: Devastating week leaves us weary, worn and wondering
Leave it to Mitch Albom to write about exactly how many of us are feeling. It’s too much isn’t it? News is out of control. What people are sharing on social media is out of control. My favorite line from his article– “There’s no calm place to turn. Even churches are shut down. Our country feels feverish, depressed, bitter and torn apart.”
I love Amy Grant! What a sweet message to her fans.
Writer Retreats You Can Stay In
Some of these are really close to me in New Mexico. You better believe that I’m going to be asking my husband for a weekend get away. I’d love to stay where D.H. Lawrence wrote!!
Your Surge Capacity Is Depleted. It’s Why You Feel Awful.
I’m thankful a friend shared this article with me, but I know that many people are like me– 2020 has been an unusually bad year PLUS we’ve had a pandemic on top of it. I feel as if I just get my head above water, and another bad thing come crashing down on me. These waves have nothing to do with the pandemic. It is a crappy year. I will get through it, but it has been hard.
Area I’m concentrating on at home– I’m going to work on putting out some fall decor today. I hope to share some updates on Instagram. It is a bit cooler here, and I definitely need something to keep my mind occupied.
What I’m listening to- I had my family do an enneagram survey, and the good news is that everyone did one and sent me their results!! I’ve been listening a second time to Jen Hatmaker’s For the Love series on enneagram numbers. I now need to get a Google Doc put together with everyone’s numbers so that maybe we can all understand each other a bit better!!
What I’m Reading- Finding Freedom
I just ordered this in the middle of the night. It was one of those nights that I couldn’t sleep and I also couldn’t find anything available on my Overdrive app from the library so I broke down and bought a book I’ve been wanting to read. So far, so good!!
On the blog this time last year- Athleisure
There is no easy way to say this– our little Scout died Monday. Dr. T and I are heartbroken! Words can’t express how much we will miss the joy that he brought to our lives. I’m working on a post about him and what he has meant to my family!! It is a very difficult time for us!
My heart goes out to you and Dr. T over the loss of little Scout. What a sweet, sweet face. The joy dogs bring to our lives is immeasurable. I wish these loving creatures could live with us forever. But, they do in our hearts. xo
Thank you! Yes- the joy is immeasurable! He was so loved!!
So sorry about the loss of Scout♥️ It’s never a good time to lose a pet but right now seems like an extra tough time.
Thank you, Rachelle! Yes, it has been extra hard!! I know we are going to be OK, but today, it’s a struggle!!
