mid-week round-up

tobacco barn

What’s new in your world? Inspired by our recent foray into “local park as personal backyard,” we nabbed a sun-shield from Amazon. Hoping to use it this weekend to extend our visits to the beach or park without baking in the sun (or getting in low-key fights with strangers over the public umbrellas, lol). Thanks for stopping by today! While you’re here, check out a few links…

  1. I can’t believe how silent things have been on what’s happening in Louisiana. You barely hear anything about the massive, ravaging fires in California either, but you still hear more about those than you do about Louisiana. (I could go on and on about my ideas on why that might be, but I’ll refrain.) It’s terribly sad, all of it.
