Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 8/15/22 — 8/21/22


I returned from Lake Texoma from Monday, fully convinced that having taken a few days off would lead to me attacking everything with a renewed energy and vigor.  Instead, the opposite happened and now I’m counting the days until I get away again.

On the positive side, we are currently preparing for October here at the Shattered Lens!  At last count, we’ve already got 155 post ready to go for October and we’re just getting started!  October is my favorite of the month and the start of my favorite season of the year and I can’t wait to share it with all of our readers here at the Shattered Lens!

Here’s what I watched, read, and listened to this week.  Happy 6th birthday to the #ILikeToWatch live tweet group!  (Despite the name, it’s actually a group that is centered around sharing music.)
