Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

Link up, link back, say hey!

1. This has been a really frustrating week: I brought home a chest cold last week, Sawyer got it with a fever and I had to stay home yesterday, DACA ending and worrying about my students, a new weird stomach pain I've developed, not getting to run/work out for almost a week, etc... I just need Friday. I'm a mess. 

2. I know this is silly, but I can't wait for Trader Joe's to bring out their $1 mini pumpkins. I buy a million.

3. If Sawyer and I are up to it I hope to go to the Dana Point Tall Ships Festival on Saturday. They have I think four or five out to explore, plus lots of other fun activities to participate in.

4. I'm currently reading an arc of Jen Agg's I Hear She's a Real Bitch and so far it's excellent. I'm a sucker for restaurant-related books, thought. 

5. Any brilliant tips for helping a little guy not bite his nails? I put the gross polish on them after trying a few other things, but it wears off and I forget to reapply and I feel like we're not making progress. He seems to just do it when he's bored, and I know he's doing it at school. 


  1. Mini pumpkins are the best! They make the perfect fall centerpieces.

  2. I love pumpkins of any size, and look forward to the season. Focusing on the things I love helps (a little) to distract me from the horrors of the world around us.

    Good luck with the nail biting...that's a tough one.

    Enjoy your week!

  3. I hope you feel better! The Tall Ships Festival sounds fun, I hope you got a chance to go.
