Weekend Reading 8.22.20

This has been a super slow week for me, by choice. Our teens are back to school online and they are feeling comfortable in their individual study zones and on their Zoom calls. So far they’ve adjusted to the circumstances and are doing well so I’m feeling really good about that.

The wildfires are back, so everyone who is close to them here in California is on edge, again. And this is only the beginning of the season. The air quality is terrible, but we’re fortunate to be 30 minutes from the coast where we can escape for fresher air. Between the pandemic and the fires all around us, I’m feeling very boxed in, so I’m being extra kind to myself and taking whatever down time is necessary to get through this. 2020 is proving to be the strangest year.
