mid-week round-up


Half-way there check-in, readers! How’s it going? What’s new? I started a new position on Monday, and last night I watched my weekly dose of The Wire with friends (and had some Country Boy Brewing Cougar Bait lol). Also, if you’re looking for something fun and free to do this weekend, head on out to the Clark Family Farms on Saturday for the Follow  the Food Farm Tour–featuring farm exploration, live Bluegrass music and local products available for purchase. Oh, and ME in the Good Foods tent. : ) Very in the spirit of this post. Hope you have a delightful week, and here are some mid-week internet gems…

Hi! How’s the week going for you guys? My to-do lists have been super long the last few days. Isn’t the ramp-up in obligations and tasks around school startin’ time weird?
