Nature’s Classroom | Two Bird I.D. Books Young Naturalists

A peaceful picture book for Anxious Kiddoes

The Magical Mindful Day: a Peaceful Picture Book

“Hope for the Future begins with Children.” Anxiety and big emotions are such a large part of our children’s lives these days. Probably more so than ever thanks to the state of our world in 2020. Just think, a year ago many kids had never heard of things like pandemics, distance…

Picking eBooks that Sooth your Soul and Feed Your Brain

So how are you? I think we are in the 8th week of lockdown/quarantine? Honestly, my ultra-introvert life hasn’t changed a ton so there are many times (a day) when I am unsure what freaking day it is much less how long we’ve been living under the Fear Shadow called…

Telecommuting From Home Doesn’t Mean Working All The Time

It’s 10:00 at night. Your eyelids feel like the Sandman is sitting on them and your body is screaming “GO TO BED!” BUT, you want to squeeze in just a  few more minutes. Just do a “couple more things…” Congrats. You’ve fallen into the Work-From-Home-Work-Around-The-Clock-Trap. You are SO normal. As…

Why I am Grateful to Work Home More than Ever

“I’m scared” a co-worker at my side-hustle job shared. The fear in her eyes backed up the words coming from her lips. This particular person was someone that I occasionally saw in passing during my few short hours every week as a morning stocker, but I rarely conversed with her….
