I usually try to share a little something about my week here, but I don’t really think that I have much to share! This week has very much felt like the “same old.” I guess this make’s sense coming on the heels of yesterday’s post about feeling overwhelmed. I know this will pass – just need to ride it out.
So on to this week’s favorites.
On Wednesday evening I watched a live stream of Not Going Quietly, the documentary about healthcare activist Ady Barkan. It comes out on 10/5 and I recommend that EVERYONE watch it – I’ll share it again in an October Friday Favorites post. Ady’s organization, Be a Hero, is currently focused on advocating for full funding of home- and community-based services (HCBS). I rely on HCBS for my caregivers – these services are SO important to me and millions of others. Please help take action by using this form to tell Congress to fully fund HCBS!
It is officially fall – while temperatures here in Pittsburgh have been all over the place, it’s definitely been getting chillier at night. That means it’s time for the coziest blanket around – my ChappyWrap! I know it might sound like this is sponsored, but really, I just love mine and think it’s the perfect blanket.
This is so cool! Microsoft is releasing an adaptive kit for their devices – add ons to make them more accessible for people with disabilities! I love that they’ve come up with options that make the devices easier for a variety of disabilities – if I had a Surface, I could definitely see myself using the loop that makes it easier to open. It feels great to see big tech companies making specific accessibility products.
Amazon clothing can be hit-or-miss sometimes, but this dress is a definite win! It’s so comfy and easy to throw on (and obviously, comes in many many patterns and colors). I have a lot of the solid colors, but I think the leopard is my current favorite (see my picture above, ha!).
24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar
I know it’s kind of early to think about Advent calendars, but they sell out so quickly sometimes that you have to order early! I had last year’s version of this tea calendar and I loved trying all the different blends each night – and even found a few new favorites!
