EcoFem Links – November 2018

While the world seems to have lost it’s damn mind in so many ways, this past week there were some things worth celebrating, and it all began with the color BLUE! And along with Democrats regaining the majority in the House of representatives, the number of women in the House in 2019 will have grown from 19% to 23%, including…

It’s been in the low 70’s all week so I had to switch gears from the umpteen house remodeling projects we’re working on to the outdoors where I swear, I PROMISE that there will be a huge-ass garden in 2019. One of the major decisions was figuring out how big to make it, whether to enclose it, and how to…

In Full Effing Swing: Perimenopause

Yeah so this was the kind of shit I saw the older women in my offices in the past talking about and sweating over…literally. Hello my name is Aimee and I’m 44 and I am going through Perimenopause. (Hi Aimee!) So I knew my periods going seriously fucking crazy was a hint. And I knew about the mood swings violently…

Yes it’s been a while, but – not so shockingly – I still have opinions to share and stuff I’m reading that I figure are important enough to mention every once in a while! There’s some serious shit going on in the world as we all know that no “thoughts and prayers” are going to change. And by the way,…

So much going on in my brain right now! One piece of it all (beyond all of the logistics like paperwork, inspections, getting our house on the market this week and, of course, the financials) that we’re obsessing over is figuring out where the ducks, bees, clothesline and garden will be. While we’re not going to be planting anything, our…

Guest Post: Five Women

When my husband and I married, he shrunk his collection of books by about 80% in order to move across the Pacific, and recently I noticed the majority of his books are by male authors. If you think about it, books written by women are all too often considered “women’s lit” and movies directed by women or written by them…

My front garden making me happy… The second half of May is under way…what a trip how time is flying…hope you all are having a lovely Spring (or Autumn, depending on where you are)… What an interesting story about Andre Leon Talley – for those of you who don’t know, he was the right hand man to Anna Wintour at…

Well, I just went to Next Level Burger for the first time – where one can enjoy a delicious burger and a to-die-for shake that are all plant-based (and not-“Frankenmeaty” at all). Proof positive that it is entirely possible to be, as they proudly say in Oregon, a fat vegan. “As long as we don’t have any kind of representation…

Alright it’s the weekend, the clocks are going forward, I’ve made a big pot of jambalaya to make up for the mostly vegan week I’ve had, the weather is supposed to be sunny and in the LOW 60’s this weekend, meeting with a prospective client this coming week, and my husband says he has a surprise outing for us on…

Stuff that’s been rolling around in my own head this past week… Eggs + Souffles + Science = Awesome. Infertility + Elderly Women + Friendship = The Sisterhood of Grief at All Ages. Art + #MeToo + Sports Illustrated = A Step in the Right Direction. More Guns + Women + Rapists = Jessica Valenti calls out more NRA Bullshit.…
