Link Love, the Cleanup Edition

October 07, 2022

Our walking trail buried under debris last week.

We’re still cleaning up after Hurricane Ian: raking, bagging, putting away emergency supplies, etc., but we’re still so grateful to be spared. Not so our neighbors to the south in Ft. Myers, Sanibel, and surrounding communities. Cleanup will go on there for a long, long time. We have been enjoying some cooler, drier weather as a result of the storm, which makes things so much easier, too.

Since this week has been about cleaning up and catching up, today instead of a post I’ll share some links I’ve enjoyed over the past month or so that I hope you enjoy, too.

Speaking of cleanup, cleaning is starting on Notre Dame’s smoke-blackened stained glass windows.

I’m still loving my Merlin app, and found this Bird Migration Explorer, from Audubon, of interest. 

How tired are you? And how are you tired? Take this quiz to find out, and read more about the different kinds of rest in “The Seven Types of Rest: I spent a week trying them all. Could they help end my exhaustion?” I wasn’t surprised to find my most pressing need was Creative rest.

Speaking of Hurricane Ian, this list of ways to help is updated regularly.

These rice fields blew my mind! 

Iceland is already on my travel wish list, and this cracked me up

If you ever wonder what difference one person can make, check out this video of a man who planted a forest.

Happy Friday, everyone!

  1. Kathy I enjoyed checking out your links...especially the one about being exhausted all the time. Very interesting reading. As always thank you for all the work you put into your posts. Hope you are seeing the end of clean up. Enjoy cooler weather too. Hugs!

    1. Debbie--Glad you enjoyed the links. We had to stop cleaning up because the county hasn't been able to pick up all the yard waste and we're running out of room to put it! We are getting some cooler weather tonight, so that will make the cleanup more pleasant when it resumes.
