I didn't realize when I drafted this post that it would go out on MLK Day. While I don't have an entire worthy tribute in me, I do want to take a minute to acknowledge this day before moving on to the bulk of my post. In the midst of the current political chaos, it is comforting to read and remember the hopeful words of Dr. King. Perhaps someday we will get closer to his dream.
What a week! After ten days off, being back at work this week has been a strange combination of relaxing and chaotic. For the most part, things have actually gone very smoothly. It has still been a tiring, though, and I know that isn't going to change anytime soon! My classes start back next week,... Continue Reading →
Welcome to day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas! I keep seeing people talking about how different this year is, how the Christmas season is ruined this year, and endless discussions of general disappointment. This is completely understandable, but today I want to talk about some Christmas traditions that are not ruined this year. Honestly, I think most things that are truly Christmas-oriented are manageable even in a year as crazy as this, some just take some adapting. But I digress. I hope that this post is an encouragement to you, and that it might remind you of something fun that you can do this season despite everything going on. I tried to keep this to things that are free or inexpensive so that everything is accessible to anyone.
Christmas-themed blogging might be my favorite kind. It's snuck up on me this year, but here we are! Today's post eases us into Christmas blogging with a First Line Friday post featuring the audiobook I'm currently listening to during my commute.
Happy Monday! This promises to be a very busy week, with some activities that would usually happen next week pushed into this one in order to make room for Thanksgiving. I'm sure that four-day weekend will be worth it, though! Today I'm taking another look through my TBR list. There are some interesting titles in... Continue Reading →
It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows,... Continue Reading →
In 2019 Cecily Wolfe easily became one of my favorite new-to-me authors. I quickly read her Cliff Walk Courtships trilogy, and have been on her bandwagon ever since! That trilogy is now being made into audiobooks, giving the world a whole new way to discover these sweet, clean stories. The Cliff Walk Courtships series is... Continue Reading →
Happy first Friday of August! This week was pretty normal for me. The most exciting thing was getting fun buttons at work which say "I'm happy to help from 6 feet away!" I smirk every time I see mine (not that anyone can tell from behind my mask). Today I'm featuring the second book in... Continue Reading →
July is officially over, and I hope that the extreme Summer heat will soon follow suit. I know we probably still have another month of 90 and 100° heat, but I am dreaming of the coming days when I will be able to comfortably eat lunch in my car with the windows down, and drive... Continue Reading →
On Saturday, July 25, I achieved my goal of reading 60 books in 2020!! I am so glad that I got this finished before school starts next month (somehow orientation being this Saturday seems both way too soon and not soon enough!). I wanted to have a little fun to celebrate, so I'm doing the... Continue Reading →
