Reading and Reflecting: 11th edition

It’s been a while since I’ve found noteworthy material to post here on a Saturday. Well, I’m back with two really good ones, this time. And I added some link-love. ā¤

Do you follow Longreads? You should! They give you the most interesting reading material. This one in particular really impressed me, so I thought I’d share it with you (and although it’s about women and their menses, men can and should read it too):

A Woman’s Work: The Inside Story

I plan on sharing this with my 11 year old daughter as well. There is no reason for our tween and teen girls to go through shame and anxiety anymore…I’m going to make sure of that.


This next article was actually posted to Twitter by Middle-Aged Warrior (my blogging friend in the UK) who recently wrote a blog post addressing just this topic. Simultaneously it made me think of another blogging friend, LA in New York, from WakingUpOnTheWrongSideOf50, who has a keen fashion sense and often talks about it in her blog.

Over-50 Women With Ridiculously Good Style

I wish I had a bigger clothing budget to have some fun with clothes, but alas…my fashion sense at the moment must include muddy paw prints and guinea pig fur. šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚


What did you think of these two articles?

  1. I was hoping the rain was finished after April, yet storms are rolling in again today. After a week of humidity. Our 2 weeks spring is over and we are apparently headed straight into summer. Which I loathe. Sweating from sunup to sundown is not my favorite.

    Good luck on the short stories. Thesauruses are definitely a friend to me. But I don’t think your snippet there was in need of much embellishing. Sometimes the simplest words are the best. I appreciate having to use my imagination while I read. I hate it when ever damn detail is spelled out for me or overexplained.
