Trashcanman What's that white stuff?😜 2d
AprilMae @Trashcanman I know, right? Luckily next week it's more fall like. I'm just happy I'm not in more Western/Northern MN versus central, it's looking like feet of snow up there. I'll take my dusting 😂 2d
Chili @AprilMae It‘s snowing up here and I am not a happy camper. We skipped fall up here. 🥶 2d

Hey Litsy friends. I'm participating in a cancer walk this October with my job and we are trying to raise some money! This money will go not only to research but to the everyday needs of the warrior who is fighting ( rides to treatment, things that make the fight easier, ect.) I will post a link in the comments if you would like to donate, but please don't feel obligated! This month join me in remembering all who fight this disease #fightcancer

4thhouseontheleft My mom received support (and a free wig and makeup) from the ACS when she went through BC treatment in 2018. 💗 2w
AprilMae @4thhouseontheleft I know so many people who received help of some sort, they do amazing things 2w

Also, I'm eating more salads!

@Avanders I messed up my days this week, and forgot to mail my package for #cozyswap until today (also forgot 2 appointments and a bill- it's not my week). I did opt for quicker shipping though so it should be there in plenty of time! Again, so sorry! I will watch the tracking closely to make sure we are good!!!

Know My Name: A Memoir | Chanel Miller
post image

Certain cases hold a place in your being. The Brock Turner case is one of those for me. All I could do was think that could have been me in so many instances through out my life. I remember the absolute outrage about how the sentencing went, the anguish that people were more concerned about the affects it would have on the rapist instead of the victim. I am thrilled that Chanel Miller is taking back her name, and herself with this memoir.

IvoryLunatic This so could have been me. I don‘t think I‘ll ever forget about this. 2w

Congrats @GrilledCheeseSamurai on being part of the six digit club! #sixdigitsamurai

My favorite 2019 read so far (even though I haven't completely finished because I'm trying to savor the book!!!) is Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered. I loved their podcast and I enjoy how their humor translates into their writing!
I love the Litsy community, it's like family, friends and a really small gang rolled into one!!

Week 4 of #BookFitnessChallenge was filled with lots of walking- as well as a sick day spent in bed.
✔ 6 hours exercise
✔ 1 book finished
🚫 too much soda again
✔ a couple of salads this week

The soda issue is, and has been, a ongoing struggle for me. It's a lot better than it was, say, 3 years ago, but I still need to work on it lol! Pictures are from yesterday's adventures 😂

I love ground cherries! Got a nice bunch at the swappers meet today so I just spent the last 15 minutes taking their husks off so they are ready to go in a salad or just be eaten for a snack! Yum!! #bfc
