HELLO LOGISTICS | Claire is on a road trip with a friend to Minnesota; Cole is flying to Italy for a course toward his degree; Chloé has returned to camp, air cast and all; and, Caden is getting ready to go to Osheaga. So many moving parts! So much laundry.
HELLO HOMEKEEPING | It’s become clear that the time has come to address the issues with the furnace and air conditioner. New units, new duct work, new thermostat. The house is only a dozen years old, sigh. Hopefully this is the end of all the spending of unsexy money!
HELLO SUMMER SCHOOL | I take a lot of online courses. A LOT of them. One of the best out there is The Inside Story with Susannah Conway. I’m looking forward to participating in Summer School again this year. (She’s also hosting #augustbreak2019 over on Instagram through the month of August.)
HELLO END OF MERCURY RX | Bad? Meh. I’ve certainly experienced worse. I did manage to get a lot done around the house, especially a lot of REcycling as I cleaned out my office (there is still a long way to go). I’m already looking forward to the next one – October 31 to November 20 (in Scorpio) – now that one will be interesting! Mark your calendars.
HELLO COURSE SELECTION | I knocked out two 20-hour courses this summer toward the 120 hours required for my creative writing certification. Now to choose what course I want to take over the autumn semester and whether I should take it in person or online. There are so many choices but I like how they are held within a strict framework.
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day: I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
