What I'm Reading This Week #24

Happy Friday all!  I hope you had an awesome week and are ready for an even better weekend.  

I didn't post much this week because there's only so many ways you can say we exercised and watched seasons six and seven of Dexter.  It was butt crack hot most of the week and we were supposed to get severe weather but never did.  I am quite happy that our first rose is starting to open up outside.

I never thought I could successfully grow a rose bush but this cute older couple who was at the rose part of the nursery the same time we were looked like they knew what they were doing.  I asked if she grew roses and she said yes and asked if they were hard to grow and she said yes.  She said to look for something that is disease resistant and treat it like a newborn baby.  I've been doing that and making sure to water at the root only to keep powdery mildew at bay and so far so good.   That's been my big excitement of the week.

Now let's root into...

Why therapists say you may feel more selfish because of the Coronavirus—and what to do about it   (Compassion fatigue is real y'all)

How to Stop Overeating After the Pandemic  (This week has been about trying to slay the snack demon, getting in more formal exercise to increase stamina again and increasing water which basically any I drink is more than I did before.)

What You Watch Matters  (Yeah it does!  I took Morissey's advice a few years ago and stopped watching the news.   Now if only I could stop reading it the past few months.  😕)

5 Natural Ways to Improve Your Memory  (Definitely good habits to get into!)

7 Serious Health Benefits of Laughter (Now those are some good reasons to watch some stand up!)

7 Best Food Pairings That Fight Inflammation  (Load up!)

50 easy kitchen updates you can do on a budget  (Some cute ideas)

The Latest Trend In Charcuterie Boards? Pancakes, of Course  (Uhhh, yes please!)

Koala and Wombat Become 'Best of Friends' While in Isolation at Australian Zoo   (Aww, dem sweet eyes)

Couple Wakes Up To Find A Moose Going For A Swim In Their Backyard   (*runs to build swimming pool*)

9 times at-home dog grooming resulted in hilarious haircut fails   (OMG, this is hilarious!)

We are hoping to get out and have a picnic this weekend since it's going to be amazing weather.  I know that you have to take these good weather weekends when you can from this point on.

Any plans for the weekend?

  1. I was kind of discouraged by what that lady said about growing roses but you took it on and have something good to show for it already. Great job! Have a great weekend everybody!

  2. What a pretty rose! Makes the effort feel worthwhile doesn't it! I'm not doing anything fancy other than renting a car for work and enjoying the freshly mowed lawn. LOL I like that smell of fresh grass when I walk out the back door. I'm doing the usual chores of laundry, house stuff and going to work. We're grilling out chicken tonight so that will be a nice dinner. We might even be able to pop the windows open because the high tomorrow is only supposed to be 71. Yippee!!!!
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Beautiful rose! Nothing going on here but working on the pool. Have a great weekend!
