Sorry the posting has been sparse this week! I’ve been taking a sewing class in the mornings and still volunteering at the thrift store in the afternoons like usual, so my time has been getting away from me. Plus, my sewing class has had homework. Haven’t had that in awhile. But when you’re learning a new skill, it’s important to practice it as much as possible.  I also FINALLY finished The House of Mirth. I got more into it once everything started falling apart for the main character (as mean as that sounds) and was pretty invested by the end. The ending, however….hit me up if you’ve read it and want to talk about it! I was a bit surprised by the turn it took. And tomorrow is the closing session for a year-long non-profit leadership course I’ve been taking. It’s been a great experience, and I’m looking forward to the culmination of it all.

I’m going to call those my adventures rather than my excuses, but I didn’t want you to think I had forgotten about you!

Here’s a preview of things to come next week:

  • Monday Musings on my alma mater and my relationship to it. I'm going to hear the new president speak on Tuesday, and I'm interested to hear what he has to say.
  • A reflection on and pictures of projects from my sewing class. I've been saying for ages that I wanted to learn how to sew, and I'm glad I finally took the plunge and did it in an "official" way.
  • Thoughts on the book When Helping Hurts. I read it awhile ago, but its principles are still percolating in my head, especially as I explore job opportunities in my chosen field.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. I’ll be back full-force next week. In the meantime, here are some utterly unrelated (to each other and to this post) posts by other bloggers that have intrigued me lately:
