Once again its time to review the month and share the things which stood out most for me. February has flown by, but I’m pretty sure that’s just a combination of stress and old age. Between the doctors’ follow-up visits for Jay and the pressure of the impending move, my hair stylist is going to earn her pay coloring my hair at the end of the month.Continue reading
January has been a tough year, but we made it!
Just kidding, but seriously.
At the end of each month, Heather Gerwing hosts the Share Four Somethings link-up. While January felt heavy and smelled strongly of Lysol, I wanted to challenge myself to do a monthly recap. By writing about something I loved, read, treasured, and something ahead, I can remember this month for more than just “Camp Fradd got the flu – and then some.”
After all, I turn 40 this year. I’m determined to squeeze every bit of happiness I can out of 2020.Continue reading
I’m going a bit rogue this month for my Share Four Somethings contribution. While Heather encourages those who join in to share about things from the current month, I’m going to stretch the rules and share about my trip to Scotland instead. We left the United States on July 19th and returned on August 4th, so at least part of the trip happened in August.Continue reading
As the month of May winds down, once again I’m joining Heather Gerwing and her Share Four Somethings link-up.
Revelation Wellness workouts – specifically the workouts-of-the-day (WOD) from their Warrior Challenge. I enjoy the RevWell workout podcasts and signed up for this free 7-day challenge because my workout routine became stale. I started to skip my lunchtime activities, instead of going to fast food restaurants with free Wi-Fi to eat and tinker on my website.Continue reading
Now that the Nashville Predators are officially done for the season (sad emoji), I’m focusing all my fandom energy on towards the MCU – super geek slang for Marvel Cinematic Universe aka the movies that make up the “canon.” And yes, we’re that serious about these things. I’ve rewatched many of the older movies, even creating a Bullet Journal spread to keep track.Continue reading
The older I get, the more I find myself craving conversation. Beyond water-cooler chatter or pleasantries exchanged in passing, I want to discuss in-depth ideas with family and friends.Continue reading
Nearing the end of month, its once again time to consider some things from the past month. These snippets – four somethings – are a small look at how I’ve spent this beginning of autumn. My morning walks, which I started in July, have long since been abandoned. Like it or not, the days are getting shorter. All the more reason to cherish the small moments.
I never got around to the August fun-times post, and while a part of me still hopes to, let’s be realistic. Perhaps I’ll find a casual way to throw in photos of me camping just outside the gates of a (decommissioned) prison after a stellar concert.
If not, I’ll learn to live, knowing I can still make memories even if the only people who know about them are me and Jay (and the random stranger friends I made along the way.)
Wednesday Night Trivia
Each Wednesday night Jay and I join other couples from our neighborhood to play live team trivia. The typically Smartinis roster includes 8 regulars, but on occasion we have others join us. The other team members have impressive professional and travel resumes, so we often do well.
