Travel: Today’s Topics of Interest

The world is changing faster than we are able to cope with it, or know how best to adapt or even get involved to make differences that are mindful of everyone around. So we struggle and ponder and take time so that we may find a solid way to become the better version of ourselves and do our part in making this world a safe, and sound place for every single human being, particularly our children.

Monday June Day

I don’t like to look back, for there is when I fail in moving forward – is what I am thinking this first day of June and hoping we are nearing the end of this long journey to keep our world safe and pray that mankind will find their way to a peaceful resolution to whatever their cause. After experiencing a severe anxiety attack this weekend, I decided this month I want to dedicate to my self care, focusing even more on the beautiful things around the world.

Interesting Shares From Around the World

I have to tell you – it’s been a bit confusing for me living in San Francisco, and watching the news unfold around the world on how everyone is handling or defining the ‘going back to normal.’  While we remain in masks in California, other’s seem to be removing them, social distancing – based on photographs – is not standard either.  Among other differences, I don’t need to list here. So, where do we stand if parts of the world are abiding by the new lifestyle, and others aren’t? Who is handling anything the right way anymore?  That’s been on my mind recently.  How about you? How one scientist suggested a questionable cure for COVID-19 – read here The malaria drug that is being tested around the globe – read here  Why are more forests still being chopped down – read here Do you believe air pollution exacerbated COVID-19 – read here What’s on your list of interesting topics to read?

Randomness – But Good Topics For Happy Vibes

Some good things to know about on occasion,  or perhaps now much more than ever, to help us emotionally cope with our current environment.  Although I have adapted to this lifestyle, now going on nearly two months, some days I find myself very on edge. And then I turn to the positive, to help me through the most difficult of times. What feel good article do you want to share? Oh and by the way – Prince Philip {featured image full credit}

Food: Pickles and Chocolate Chip Cookies

No, I am not pregnant. But on Sunday, I did down a package of cookies – five pieces to be exact, still wanting more. But I forced myself to stop. They were store bought, and since we have no more at home, and I just can’t see myself standing in line at grocers for the packaged version, I searched for a chocolate chip cookie recipe. But then one thing led to another, and pickles was the only thing missing from our burgers last night – so this recipe for making pickles at home, was another thing I felt the need to share, in case you are in the same dilemma on this Monday.   On another note, have you considered coloring books or coloring apps online? The book versions make great gift ideas for Mums and Grandmas for Mother’s Day. At least, this artist thinks so. {featured image full credit}

Home Schooling – Adult Style

Since some of us have been forced to home-school our children, I think we may find ourselves sometimes cringing at some of the assignments tasked to them.  For example, me with math. You might feel the same about science, or history, or even language-whatever it may be in your part of the world. So it dawned on me, to start this series, where I share some refresher facts from around the world to seem just maybe smarter than usual to our kids. What do you think? I mean, no insult to anyone, I’m just trying to have fun here. So if you want to play along, then by all means do so, otherwise feel free to swipe left. 🙂 Here’s today’s topics of learning Hey was this fun or it’s a hard pass? {featured image full credit}
