The Lily Cafe Digest #24

Today is my daughter's Kindergarten orientation and Monday is the first day of school for both of my kids, so I figured that, even though my last break was just last month, I would take some much needed time for myself. No blogging and no kids for part of the day for 5 days. It … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #24

Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: June 2022

diversity inclusivity reading challenge

This year I'm embarking on a personal Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge. This involves trying to ensure at least half of all the books I read each month feature either diversity or an inclusive, accepting world. I've defined diversity as involving books focused on one group (non-white because too many books have already featured enough white … Continue reading Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: June 2022

The Lily Cafe Digest #23

Looking back, it's been almost 3 months since my last Digest and blogging break. No wonder I'm feeling so exhausted. Or maybe it's because my kids are out of school for the summer (10 weeks of summer break for the older one, 11 weeks for the younger one). We're keeping them busy with an enriched … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #23

I'm not sure what's happened over the past few weeks, but somehow the below things posted. Just looking at some of them has me scratching my head a little because I think I went through the last few weeks in a complete haze. A complete haze in which all I saw and dreamed about were … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #22

Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022

diversity inclusivity challenge feb 2022

This was supposed to post last night, but I forgot February only has 28 days. My son accidentally put the date 2-29-28 on one of his school assignments yesterday, so we looked up the calendar and saw 2028 does indeed have February 29th! Thanks to that, I forgot 2022 does not have a February 29. … Continue reading Diversity and Inclusivity Challenge: February 2022

The Lily Cafe Digest #21

A couple of weeks ago, I was thinking of changing my blog theme for, um, the (pick a number)th time. Which doesn't really impact much anyways since I think at least half of my views are through the Reader, but, just in case someone is actually at the site, things would have looked different. But, … Continue reading The Lily Cafe Digest #21
