I made apple turnovers. They were delicious and turned out far better than I expected. I kinda want to make then again but would like a better way of cutting out the dough first. If you have any suggestions let me know!

It’s been far too many days since I actively took my camera outside with the intent to take photos. I have been keeping up on the daily photos but more often than not I am using my phone. Currently debating on whether or not I want to change the challenge rules for next year to be only with my camera and not my phone. I have a feeling it will mean many more photos inside but it might challenge me more creatively.

The big laundry day, all the blankets, sheets, towels. Once a month, three loads, and lots of before washing prep and after wash prep.

Dentist Office - for some reason this visit was stressing me out so much that I couldn’t sleep. I managed to last look at the clock at 5:45 am and my alarm woke me up at 6:40, it had been going off for 40 minutes. The visit was not stressful at all and so I am tired for nothing.

Consumption of Women of Colors Work a Thread - this really stopped me in my tracks. For a few reasons, I had never thought of it that way. I am now worried that I have done this, especially in regards to the You & White Supremacy posts I did. It’s a good read and I am glad to have had it called out and I need to be better.
