mid-week round-up

Happy Wednesday, folks!! What are you up to this week? I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks. The type of busy where I’m relishing in that productive, crossing stuff off my To-Do list feeling and not the type where I’m feeling overwhelmed. Which is nice. Fingers crossed I keep it up! In the midst of it all, the (slightly) cooler temperatures have given me a touch of a sore throat (bleck!). But that’s all the more reason to live my best Hygge life and drink a ton of hot tea!! I’m sure I’ll be on the up and up in no time. Hope everyone is killin’ it on this mid-week day, and that you have a few moments to enjoy some links…

One thought on “mid-week round-up

  1. I do recognize a lot more sketchy situations in my past now that they’re behind me than I did as they happened. I’m glad that I’m much more self-aware now.

    I hadn’t even considered that Trump never mentions his mother. The cut-and-paste Tweets with her quote (that he didn’t even understand?! what?!) are typical, huh?
