I am just coming off a three day weekend and have not managed to blog. So there is that. At least, I can try and throw a little update together. You’d like that, right?.
+ I had planned to publish the first road trip recap post this week, but I think this will have to wait until next week (hoping that I’ll get around to writing this weekend). Do you ever have all these grand plans for writing and then nothing happens? Yeah, me too.
Instead, I cleaned our house and grocery-shopped and did laundry and all the things that you have to do after your normal routine has been thrown off by traveling (but it was so worth it, no complaining here!)
+ Sadly, we had to say farewell to baseball season last weekend (the Red Sox didn’t make it through the playoffs and as of yesterday, John Farrell is gone, which makes me sad. He was a good manager and I liked him as a person.).
+ I received news yesterday that my bff’s cancer is back and I just about had it with the cancer news from friends. My bff has been dealing with this brain tumor for the last 9 years and it’s just so incredibly unfair. I am a bit scared and frankly a little pissed off, but also can’t help to be incredibly positive and hopeful that she’ll beat this sucker once again. What else could I even think right now?
+ My heart is breaking in a million little pieces lately with all the natural disasters wreaking havoc on all different parts of the country. Right now it’s ‘our turn’ here in California with catastrophic wildfires in Napa and Sonoma counties and the foothills. So many homes have burned down, so many people have been evacuated, some have lost their lives. It was super-smokey yesterday morning when I drove to work. I just don’t know what do with all the bad news right now. I feel really unsettled lately.
+ On a positive note, I had a couple more orders from my Etsy shop and I guess, I should be gearing up a little bit for the holiday season. It’s been fun to make cards again.
What’s a random thought on your mind today?
