Friday Favorites: 06/09/22

It is crazy how much better I feel after a solid weekend out last weekend and good weather this week. I feel more alive than I have felt since basically before the pandemic started. I feel so happy for the first time in ages, I don't know, there was something about the human connection of … Continue reading Friday Favorites: 06/09/22

Friday Favorites: Time Off and New Curtains

I am taking today off from work! I'm driving down to Minneapolis (about 8 hours) for a concert on Saturday night! I am so excited, I'm going to wear cute clothes, wander around a city, use my passport!! I know I was literally just in a city but this weekend feels like a real trip, … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Time Off and New Curtains

Friday Favorites: News podcasts and Internet acquaintances

What a week, I don't think I have experienced a faster week in ages, Monday I flew to Sachigo Lake to help establish their emergency response to what I thought was a (what is now standard) COVID outbreak, but it ended up also being a mental health crisis and opioid epidemic crisis that had been … Continue reading Friday Favorites: News podcasts and Internet acquaintances

Friday Favorites: Afternoon breezes and afternoon tea

I don't know which of us is more excited that we can sometimes open the windows in the afternoon. I am still out of the house pet sitting, but I go home everyday to take care of my wee beast and I've been opening the windows to let the stale winter air out. This week … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Afternoon breezes and afternoon tea

Friday Favorites: murder shows and overly caffeinated new workouts

This was one of those weeks where it simultaneously felt hellishly long and also whipped by in a flash. I am super excited for this weekend. I get to spend the whole weekend at home and I am so pumped for it (honestly I thought the family was supposed to come home on Thursday and … Continue reading Friday Favorites: murder shows and overly caffeinated new workouts

Friday Favorites

Friday is my favorite day of the week, not just because it's the weekend, but because it is the day I go to my P.O. Box and to the coffee shop and get my weekly fancy coffee and sweet out. I look forward to it all week. I would love to get a coffee out … Continue reading Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites: Bad TV, Maggie Rogers, and Validation

This was the first week in months that life felt somewhat normal. It was really nice. I am also so sold on a Nespresso once again. I have been at this pet sitting job since Sunday and they have a Nespresso and it makes nice coffee and is just so easy. It very nearly made … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Bad TV, Maggie Rogers, and Validation

Friday Favorites: news overwhelm and favourite jeans

It feels a bit, meaningless? nihilistic? absurd? to do something like write a blog post about your social media favourites and favourite TV when Russia has invaded Ukraine thanks to one old white man's romanticization of the past and a desire for a return to the age of empires. But if I learned anything during … Continue reading Friday Favorites: news overwhelm and favourite jeans

Friday Favorites: Chicken Fingers and Rapid Tests

My goodness what a week, I have been up in Mishkeegogamang (mish-key-GOH-gah-mahng)First Nation this week helping with their COVID-19 outbreak response, about 25% of their population has COVID-19 and even more have to isolate due to being close contacts. First on Monday, I got up at 5, as I had my PCR test booked for … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Chicken Fingers and Rapid Tests

Friday Favorites: Short Week, Long Days

This week has gone so quickly and so slowly at the same time. Monday was the second day of driving back that started in a hilly, twisty portion of the Trans-Canada Highway in a snowstorm, then Tuesday began with an email inbox that began at 16 unread emails and slowly updated over 10 minutes to … Continue reading Friday Favorites: Short Week, Long Days
