Week Notes Vol 163

June 19, 2022

I have my annual checkup month - the month to ensure my body keeps on functioning as expected but also to purge of unwanted and no longer needed items. This includes everything from email subscriptions, to recurring charges on my credit cards to password updates to rethinking my goals and values. Thankfully REI has a trade in program to return some of my items I no longer need. I also find the local buy nothing group very useful - for things like items my puppy has outgrown. And for books there are tons of tiny libraries out there.

It’s also the month to treat my tents and boots to keep critters away in preparation of the summer camping season. Thanfully Laika is on a monthly dose of flea/tick treatment since she seems to be a magnet for ticks!

A field of flowers or a tick paradise?
