Weekend Reading 8.8.21

I returned from a week long road trip to Oregon, I’ll write up my experience soon, it definitely had its ups and downs! I came home to discover more delays on our flip house project, mostly due to materials that haven’t arrived and subcontractors moving dates for their availability. We’re pushing into September for completion but I’m trying to just relax and go with the flow of what’s happening.

It seems everything is so up in the air right now. It’s likely I’ll need to postpone my trip to Spain scheduled for next month and stay home for fall. Wildfires are happening again in the west, and the drought isn’t helping the situation. The world is a strange place these days. I’m just happy my teens are going back to their campus after a year spent doing school online. Gratitude for the little things is what keeps me going. 🙂
