Week-end: links & life {vol. 36}

“You don’t stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing.” – George Bernard Shaw

silly sunglasses

Life requires a sense of humor. Like when you’re shopping and get tickled about ALL THE TAGS on the sunglasses. Bonus: my mom (shopping with me) thought I was a nut taking selfies in TJ Maxx.

homeschool planning + kettlebells

I’m having a great time learning more kettlebell exercises, and it’s easier to practice now that I have a couple of kettlebells here at home. I really enjoy them, partly because they give me a great workout, but also because slinging around solid cast iron feels like something a strong girl does.  😉

There are SO MANY things I need to do in regards to getting ready to start our homeschool year. I tend to stall once I’ve done the initial big-picture planning. Now I need to clean out and reorganize, then get into the specifics of planning. Mid-August is our planned start date, so I’ve still got a few weeks. Until then, I’m happily working my way through a big stack of library books!

I let my head trainer do a bit of cupping therapy on me, but I can’t say I’m a fan. In theory, it releases toxins and such from areas of the body where the cups are applied. Although many other folks at my gym (and elsewhere) swear by the results, the only result I noticed were ugly bruising and pain. But at least I tried something new!

Happy week-end, friends!
