I have a girl crush on the Naming Fairy, Female, 35, from the Netherlands

I very much needed to update my iMac as it didn’t sync my photos anymore. But it’s doing so very slowly! So annoying! Jan 2, 2020

      Annoyed at everything. Are you ever in that mood? Like, without there being any good reason for it?

        Our local farm used to sell them as courgette. No worries! I love learning language differences.

      Today I heard that the father of one of my students died this week in a firework incident. Heartbreaking! I've been a bit off my game today.

      I read that wearing a hat helps with cold hands and feet. So I'm sitting here, on the sofa, with a winter hat on. And it works (for now)!

        @yellowpeep I'm not a patriarch, I don't like to divide the world up. We are living in a digital world where the borders are very thin. And I like that. So don't think that I'm only crying for my own things. I'm mostly crying for your country and it's people. (I'm not implying that you meant it this way, I just wanted to comment)
        Also, I hope you're right and my negative thinking will not come true. Please..

        @Tree City don't worry, I didn't take it wrongly. Even though I've seen and heard people say that we, as in everyone that is not American, should just stay quiet because this hasn't anything to do with us. Just because I'm not in it, doesn't mean I don't care. But apparently that's a very difficult thought to process by some.

        I think the reason I wanted to say something on your post is because my husband was in your country the day of the election. (His work sent him there.) :) Anyway, thank you for your empathy!

        I had a very busy week and I've been so tired. I talked about it with some colleagues and they all echoed it! So I blame it on the stressful workweek as I am feeling okayish now. *touch wood*

        Here in Ottawa too, I was planting trees in the rain today, and someone told me we might have snow before the week is out too. (That is exceptionally early for us.)

        think about the finished product. Or do bits at a time. muscle through a page or two, and see how much better you feel! If not - start combining weeks to make it go faster... and then stop. There's no point pushing through a project if you really don't look forward to it! Hugs! Good luck!

        My favorite thing in the world was being current. I would look forward to my scrapping time on Mondays to start my weekly spread for the previous week. That's a distant memory now! But I love my PL books so much and can't imagine not doing them, but right now, it's hard. Maybe we need a motivation thread in the PL section!

        Not really? I do usually use a frame of some sort so I know where and how the photo fits it later. But it's just so much easier because you don't have a photo and colours in it that distract.

        I actually cried just now. What even is this? How can a baking show make someone cry? Anyway, I'm all up-to-date now. I love this show so much.

        We watch The Great British Baking Show (that's what it's called in the US, but I think it's the same thing?) with our kids. There are so few "wholesome" shows that are also entertaining for adults, so it's nice that we all like it. :) The US is a season behind, so I'm looking forward to a new one asap!
