my week in objects (mostly).

May 3, 2019

1. this bird seed.

{and this feeder*, because warm weather is a challenging time for fruit feeders.}

2. this book* from sara.

{because i finally cracked it open and it’s so useful and encouraging.}

3. last summer’s swimsuits.

{because they still fit.}

4. these sneaks*.

{but mostly morning walks with cait.}

5. this sunflower sprout.

{because it keeps on growing!}

other things:

compassion packages.

turd-like art.


with a single shell button closure at the back.

no matter how impossible the angle or how bright the light.

everyone shines when they are seen.

lawn love.

stranded on emotionally stunted island.

data not dogma.

    YES to that lawn video!! oh, that made me feel good. i’m so glad to learn that more and more people are getting into native plants and rain gardens. (now if only we could do away with gas-powered leaf-blowers…)

        Did you switch from the all birds? I have nike running shoes but need some good walking shoes.

          Yes! Mine were ~4 years old and needed replacing. I liked them, but wanted something different!

    Dang, the emotionally stunted island article is a real eye opener in so many different ways. I read a ton and this is the first article in awhile that really blew my mind. While I disagree with the pov that “all men are doing this to all women”, I do agree that women really need to be aware of accidentally becoming the crutch for this type of prevalent behavior. They certainly wouldn’t necessarily tolerate it from another female friend. Forwarding it to my girlfriends. Thanks!!
