In Costa Rica, it sometimes seems like everyone was born in September (or October, which I just found out actually holds the record). My husband, three of his four siblings, his mother and an awful lot of her grandkids and great-grandchildren were born in this month, and plenty of my friends as well. If you’re a September baby, happy birthday. And if you’re a baby sloth, well, thanks for reading. That’s a lot of effort for a sloth, and I just want you to know I appreciate it.
Every Friday I’ll publish something on the lighter side to get the weekend started right – slothy, funny or cocktail-y – and list the previous days’ posts in case you missed them and feel like some weekend boosting. Thank you for joining me… I can’t wait for Week 2.
Launch Day: Boots on, ready to roam.
Day 1, Monday Inspiration: On the learning curve of freedom.
Day 2, Tuesday Beau-tay: My first challenge of the year is to learn artists’ stories.
Day 3, Wellness Wednesday: In which I sat down meaning to write about why I should transform myself and ended up writing about how self-improvement can stuff it.
Day 4, Thursday Exploring: A little poem about volcanoes and, you know, the #metoo movement.
Wishing you all a slothful weekend filled with good coffee and many other pleasures!
