Hello, Friends. How are you? I find it’s so hard to concentrate and get work done when the news cycle is particularly intense. You too? I have some house updates that I plan to share to Instagram, and I can’t seem to get in the right zone (if that makes sense).
This weekend, we’ll keep it low key. We’ll celebrate Oscar’s birthday, and maybe take a break from the internet. : ) How about you?
Ready for your weekend links? Here are a few things I’ve wanted to share:
–Inside a Harrowing Day at the Capitol. The more I read about what happened that day and leading up to that day, the worse it gets.
-For the New Year, you can nudge the world in a better direction by donating some of prisoners’ most-requested books.
-I know it’s like 3 impeachable offenses ago, but this is Trump pressuring, threatening, and pleading with the Georgia Secretary of State to lie and endorse Trump’s wild claims of election fraud.
-What We’ve Lost: The Species Declared Extinct in 2020.
-How Ammon Bundy Helped Foment an Anti-Masker Rebellion in Idaho.
-In November, I included this fancy nightgown on a gift guide. I ended up ordering one for Betty, but it was my first time ordering from that site and I wasn’t sure if I could trust it. Well, the nightgown arrived and it is so great!
Here are some tweets I saved for you:
–No charges against the killers of Jacob Blake.
–Resigning now? Pathetic.
-This is brilliantly put.
-I’m of the opinion that those institutions can not be reformed.
-Do you remember this? I sure do.
-I see this happening and it drives me mad.
-Is everyone aware that Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is an extreme right wing fanatic?
–There must be justice, or there can be no healing.
-A thread on current nazi and alt right symbols — many were not familiar to me.
–Judge them. If they committed crimes put them on trial.
I hope you have a good weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
P.S. — The photo at top is a local castle I snapped a photo of this week. It’s called Chateau D’O.
