August Lookback

Here's where I am:

Listening to:

Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, movie playing in the background as I do other things, like write a blog post. ;-)


this past Christmas. Getting one last Christmas with my husband's grandmother. What will this year look like?


nothing much during covid, except going back to work and getting household chores done/finding new ways to fix things while I have time to experiment

Anxious about:

My job. I will be helping the kids with their studies and I'm anxious about doing a good job with that.

Also keeping up with online friends.

Interested to Know:

It was the perfect dinner!
