Things I Love Thursday

This week, I’m loving…

the support of my homeschool community and my writing community. This world is full of good people. ❤

Wood Sprite having such a great time at a cast party, courteous of my family and our friends, while I was able to stay home to work.

this month's Roaring Twenties box from Fortune Cookie Soap. I'm head-over-feet for two scents, and while the other two aren't my favorites of all time, they certainly make me feel like I'm going out to a speakeasy for a night on the town.

how often I see my family now. Most of us live closer to one another than we have in years and it's so nice.

how Indy takes care of things so quickly and without complaint. He's taken care of my sister's car this week right after work, as cold as it was. My family loves to brag about him and for good reason.

how Noke snuggles with Wood Sprite as soon as they lie down, as if he's been waiting for that moment all day long. ❤

all of the opportunities that Wood Sprite has, from great classes they feel giddy about to good friends. I'm still trying to keep up with how quickly they're aging, though! I never pictured making coffee for my kid's friends after a sleepover, but here we are.

watching movies with my family. I didn't love the movies (Doolittle and Secret Life of Pets 2), but I did enjoy discussing them and playing board games afterward

going out for ice cream with friends. Well, technically the teens had ice cream and the adults got cinnamon rolls because it was just too cold outside!

a tiny bit of writing for fun in between writing for work

reading One Day in December, which I don’t technically love, but I really like the friendships in it. It’s definitely not what I’m craving, which is an adventure with a good romance thrown in (think Hunger Games or Lunar Chronicles). Any recommendations?

staying on top of deadlines, for the most part

The Witcher. Yeah, I’m a little obsessed. I may have made some stickers. Yen is my patronus for 2020, and when I have a moment of downtime I find myself watching videos of, say, Geralt being a mood

What are you loving this week?

The Tuesday Currents

I’m currently…

oh so sleepy. Writing all through the night and getting slower by the minute!

chugging the last of my favorite coffee while I write

taping up my poor 2020 journal. The thing never knew what it had in store when I bought it… It’s only January and I had to get the duct tape out already. I’m splurging on the moleskin in 2021!

going on dates with Indy while Wood Sprite’s in classes

setting lots of dates with family and friends

trimming this poor cat’s fur because she can’t even keep it clean herself. Sally is our first cat with fur this thick and now I see why my sister always says it’s such a pain!

feeling super excited about the Fortune Cookie Soap gift card I won and the “Create Your Own” whipped cream (their version of thick lotion/body butter) I used it on! I can’t wait to try a bunch of new-to-me scents.

drawing with Wood Sprite. We like to issue challenges to each other like, “Combine a fandom with a favorite meme,” or “Teenage Mutant Ninja (any animal except turtle!).” We both complete each challenge and share when we finish them.

smelling like Grandpa Joe and Ecto-1. Yum!

finishing The Witcher. And I might be a little obsessed. Do we really have to wait until 2021 to find out what happens?

planning logistics for classes and activities every day this week… and next! Sunday’s our anniversary but we are thinking of staying home just because it’s the only day without anything planned so far.

going out to dinner with a gift card our sweet neighbors gave us

getting new phones, after protesting the idea for YEARS. My phone is so outdated new apps won’t work on it (and many old ones quit, too). Since our provider is pretty much leaving the country, it was as good a time as any to get a new one while we switch.

playing with the air fryer.

using the last of our free movie tickets we won at trivia night to see Dr. Doolittle (we used the others to see Frozen 2 and Jumanji: The Next Level)

reading Mr. and Mrs. X comics

finishing up Home for Christmas during my daily walk and hoping they make a second season

getting excited about Prodigal Son and Sabrina returning this week

What are you up to this week?
