19 things this week

Here’s a look at some interesting things we read/ saw / thought / did this week.

  1. This Man Book Club is awesome!
  2. I really appreciated the thoughts on Ashley’s post, It’s Ok When Life Gets In The Way. “Make the wise choices to do what is best in the moment”
  3. 10 Dos and Don’ts for a Happy Book Club. So far I’m really liking mine. I like that a different person is the host each month and that person picks the book and leads the discussion.
  4. 3 Things to Do When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed. Good tips here. Personally, I mentally prioritize based on what has to get done and what I’d like to get done. Then I do the task that I can complete the quickest first.
  5. Goodreads Giveaways now includes Kindle ebooks.
  6. I’m a huge fan of sci-fi but from this list I’ve only read Ready Player One and Ender’s Game.
  7. I’ve always been super intrigued by people who try to live a Zero Waste Lifestyle. We recycle, compost, upcycle, and try to keep the things we throw into the trash to a minimum but not sure I could be this hardcore.
  8. On my summer menu are these Strawberry Mojitos and this Derby Day Mint Julep.

  5. 14,000 Miles, 21 National Parks, 1 Airstream, and 10 Stunning Photos just took my breath away.
  6. I didn’t know Silent Reading Parties were a thing – I could get down with that!
  7. Dude – the weather is awesome in my neck of the woods, and if it’s one thing I want to do before summer is over – it’s Get Face to Face with Bison
