Week in Review

Last weekend’s memorial jaunt to the mountains provided a refreshing dose of crisp air, tasty wine, and spaciousness.

I started the week at the launch of Wayne Pacelle’s new book, The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers are Transforming the Lives of Animals. Being in a room filled with animal lovers is  energizing—especially with Cory Booker there, too. That night I filled out The Humane Society of the United States’ online volunteer interest form and will be attending their biannual conference, Taking Action for Animals, again in June. Love their work!

Tim’s off biking the west coast again so the week was about juggling an anxious dog who can’t be left alone with daycare hours and clients. We made it work and have only a few days left before Tim returns to help co-parent. Oddly enough I was experiencing anxiety from leaving my anxious dog with a sitter to attend a talk last night appropriately titled Emotional Rescue.

The week consisted of caring for Mookie, working with clients, baking kale chips, gardening, writing, releasing a podcast, attending three book events/talks, sipping tea, teaching a workshop, and mourning the loss of Prince.
