So, my weeks are starting to run together. As I’m sure most of the folks who read this already know, there have been devastating wildfires in Northern California – specifically our beloved wine country. It has been a tragedy with great impact for me in a couple of different ways. To start, we experienced a lot of smoke and poor air quality for most of the duration of the fires burning – wearing a mask while out and about in San Francisco and the surrounding East Bay cities was not uncommon. Also, I volunteered with work to head up to our Santa Rosa base camp to help my department deploy records management resources to other lines of business. I have never seen anything quite like it before, and though at times I feel like my morale is in the gutter, and I’m just swimming around in circles, those 4 days I spent at base camp last week made me proud to work for the company I work for, and invigorated me to be a better version of myself both at work and at home.
With all of that going on, I kind of fell off of my blog/closet challenge escapade. It did help that while at base camp I basically wore boots, a zip up fleece and a safety vest the whole time 🙂 Regardless, below is snapshot of the last few weeks. Also, important to note – as I did laundry this weekend I was able to set aside enough clothes to fill up a donation bag.
