WRD: Stormy Weather

Tweet I had a lot of hope for this week. It seemed like the universe was a little bit against that hope. It’s fine. It just could have been better. WAY better. It is full on Autumn here in the Netherlands. For those of you who know nothing about the seasons here it goes a…

WRD: Week 24 Back in the Saddle

Tweet This week was finally a bit “normal” – I wasn’t sick, I worked four days, and I got a lot of activity in. Little Love Note to the Commenters: I’m so sorry I haven’t replied on comments the last few posts. Life and Work has been busy; I’m hopefully going to catch up this…

Weekly Wrap: Week 8 And No Rest

Week 32 – Shake it Out

Tweet   Another week has flown by!  Incredible!  Everyone coming back from vacation and kids are going back to school and I’m like “WHAT? I DIDN’T HAVE A SUMMER HOLIDAY YET!!” Since I want to get this post up while it’s still Monday, you’ll have to forgive me for not doing my weekly stats photo. …

Week 31 – Hot Herre

Tweet   I know everyone is talking about the weather right now and honestly I’m one of those “it is what it is” kind of people when it comes to weather and… I rarely believe the weather forecast anyway (especially here!).  But seriously?  Enough already.  It’s blazing.  We are not used to this.  As I…
