Here & There 8.27

Happy Sunday night, friends! This weekend was everything I needed it to be - yesterday we got a late start but made it to one of my favorite places in PA, Ott's Exotic Plants, where we picked up a few new green things to add to my collection. Afterwards we just drove and explored the area, I've been to Schwenksville before, but really hadn't looked around much besides Ott's. It's a beautiful part of PA and we ended up semi-close by today when we made our way out to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary for a hike. Sunday hikes are beginning to be quite a thing for us, and there's no other way I'd want to start the week. Chris and I have been making it a point to explore something new every weekend, especially as the weather begins to cool, it's been refreshing to get out of the city and away from the extra heat, noise, and din of city life. This week is shaping up to be a good one, with some freelance work and a pizza night/clean-out-the-basement planned for Tuesday (because why spend the weekend worrying about that kind of stuff?). Have a wonderful week!

Hey speaking of hurricanes. It would be cool for you to include links to raise money for Harvey victims. My city is underwater right now. We've had over twice as much water dumped on us that Katrina and we are the 4th largest city in the united states. Many of my friends and family have had their homes flooded over the first floor. Here's a great list that's just a start! Thanks from Houston! http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/08/28/546745827/looking-to-help-those-affected-by-harvey-here-s-a-list

Nakita - thank you for leaving the link and for gently reminding me that I neglected to link something for Harvey relief. NPR always does such a great job of compiling info, added to the above. Thank you for reading and I hope you, your family, and friends are all safe!!
