Month in Review: April 2016

Long time no... write, I guess.  Some of you may have guessed I'd quit blogging and, well, some of you would have been right. That was the intention anyway. I knew when I got my job last year (my job that I love, but which is very time intensive) that NFD's days were likely numbered and certainly that was reflected in the lessening of posts, so, when I didn't get anything done for a few weeks it seemed like a good time to ghost out, but....Ironically, I quit my hobby for my job but when, at my job, we were recently asked to filled out a questionnaire  that asked what our hobbies were and I couldn't put any of this down anymore and that... didn't seem right.

I missed it.  I missed the documentation and reflection.  I missed the routine and sharing- being part of the conversation too.  So, a here's another post and finding a voice again. It'll be a bit to find a balance that works. Goodness knows it hasn't been found in the last few months. But in the meantime- Hello. How have you all been?

.... Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming, complete with this month's links list.

Links To Spring Into

Welcome to Jackson Hole.... China? 

Edible Spoons could reduce plastic in landfills

Also- pencils that become plants

I taught English in The Czech Republic... which is now Czechia. Not sure what to think about that.

A library for color (and there's a color made from mummies...just sayin'.)

A new Caravaggio has been discovered?! One expert thinks so!

Harriet Tubman to go on the twenty dollar bill

Would you wear pants to your wedding?

Teaching code to prisoners could be an innovative way to rehabilitate.

Female soccer players make less money than male players but produce more revenue

Breaking down film dialogue by gender

And if you don't like dialogue, you can watch silent movies here

Stationery Wishlist: Spring Fever

1. Floral Pencil Case | 2. Typewriter Post-Its | 3. Emma Block Print Cards | 4. You're a Peach Card | 5. Notepad | 6. Kate Spade Pens | 7. Mint Green File Holder

1. Floral Pencil Case - April showers bring May flowers, so they say. Put these in your purse, and go out to sketch some real flowers, this April!

2. Typewriter Post-Its - Typewriters always make me things of Meg Ryan and Tom Hannks in You've Got Mail. There is just something inherently springtime about that story!

3. Emma Block Print Cards - Don't these ladies look the epitome of airy springtime, strolling about with Paris with flowers and white dresses.

4. You're a Peach Card - Yum, right?

5. Notepad - This may be as close to a green thumb as I get. A fun way to bring the outdoors indoor.

6. Kate Spade Pens- A bit of riotous color at your desk can make it easier to stay indoors and at your work when the weather might beckon you instead.

 7. Mint Green File Holder- You can file it away:  finding pretty things to keep your work in can be hard, but this colorful holder might change that.
