My June Reading Wrap-Up

June was a month where I concentrated on taking care of myself — I’m doing yoga, meditation, and generally trying to keep anxiety levels at a manageable level. I’m working on appreciating my life more and worrying less about things I can’t control. Easier said than done, but I’m learning some good approaches. Here’s what I…

My April Reading Wrap-up

April was a pretty good month, with a job change for my husband, our first visit from family in over a year, and my first vaccination.  A friend invited me to join a group of women who are walking/running an informal half-marathon in mid-May. I’ve “stepped” up my daily walks to 3-4 miles and treated myself…

My March Reading Wrap-Up

March was a busy month, between increases in responsibility at work, celebrating my husband’s birthday, and planning for life post-vaccination.  A number of my family are now fully vaccinated, which is a huge relief, though I’m still waiting. I’ve also been thinking about ways to update my blog and I’m trying out a new book-tracking…

My January Reading Wrap-Up

January was certainly an eventful month.  We went from deeply disturbing to inspiring, and now I’m hopeful we can settle into something that feels a little more like daily life.  My parents are still waiting to receive vaccinations, but I’m hoping that happens soon.  It was a good month for reading, and I’ve gotten off…

November Wrap-Up and Mini-Reviews

I spent a lot of time this month participating in Nonfiction November, so I thought instead of the usual monthly wrap-up I’d post some mini-reviews instead. These three books address issues related to science, religion, and the intersection of the two. I recommend all three.  The Story of More by Hope Jahren (audio by the author):…

My October Reading Wrap-Up

October wasn’t a great blogging month for me, because there’s really only one thing that mattered this month — the election.  I started volunteering with the Biden campaign, which helps my stress levels a bit because at least I feel like I’m doing something.  If you’re in the U.S., PLEASE VOTE!  A great site to…

My July Reading Wrap-Up

July felt like a long month.  There are a lot of things happening in this country that quite frankly terrify me. Among other things, I’m furious about the way school re-openings have been politicized. Two of my sisters are teachers – one is desperate to go back to the classroom, and the other is worried about…
