Suddenly it’s March and I’m not quite sure where February disappeared. 🙂 Somewhere between being sick and getting back to work, I lost track of time. Winter in Southern Finland has been really odd: snowless and rainy, so despite me usually enjoying winter months, I’m really looking forward to spring already.
Bad weather meant more time for reading and I did read a few books during February, but had no time to post about them. So here they are with a few comments about them.
Your feminist premise should be: I matter. I matter equally. Not “if only.” Not “as long as.” I matter equally. Full stop.
Quote from Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions
I did enjoy all of these books a lot and actually so far during 2020, I’ve mostly read really good books. 🙂 Hopefully this trend will continue.
Suddenly it’s May! 😮 Which means that it really is starting to look like spring, in Finnish standards anyway (it was still randomly snowing just a week ago). It also it means that it’s now been roughly 4 months since I had the first, more severe, plantar plate tear on my right foot and around 2 months since the less severe tear was found in my left foot.
Never ever did I think that this would take so long! Finding the patience to go through recovery definitely still feels challenging at times.
Weather really has an impact on the overall mood. Recently it has been mostly sunshine only and a couple of times temperatures have been up to +10 degrees Celsius and it actually feels warm. Then again today it was back to icy rain and gloomy skies, that’s Finnish spring for you. Still, the season is changing and there is a definite urge to just go outside and do something.
I’m obviously still not allowed to do much with my my feet still recovering, but I did do small things kinda outside during the weekend which felt really nice.
