Things I Love Thursday

This week I’m loving…

phone chargers! Indy found a bunch in a drawer and suddenly we’re not all swiping each other’s chargers. Plus, we all got little rechargeable banks from the library for summer reading (as well as another library for the adult reading program!) and those things have been SO helpful, especially when your phone is older than several of the libraries themselves!

bath bombs for stressful times. This Golden Boy one from Fortune Cookie Soap was everything yesterday.

people who come out of the woodwork when you’re in pain just to say they are there and they care. It means so much. It’s always surprising to find out who does… and who doesn’t.

a rare week that’s been mostly at home. There’s just as much work to be done as ever, and only three cool rooms in the house, but it’s also nice to not be running to and fro for a bit. We did go to a fun class last night on the “lost art of passing notes,” and the teacher had a fabulous soundtrack.

goofing off with Wood Sprite and Indy over said note-making and pizza later.

super Penzey’s deals. I’m now the proud owner of a Penzey’s towel, which I’ve always wanted, which was totally free this week!

the help of our wonderful 4-H specialist, who always seems to have it together, even while sick, when the rest of us are falling apart. She picked up forms from my house yesterday to save us a trip! You can’t beat that kind of dedication and we are so grateful for it.

dates with Indy while Wood Sprite is in class, which is a thing again after a very brief break.

such a cool chemistry/physics class hosted by a teacher/mom/dear friend in our area. Wood Sprite is loving it so far!

giving Wood Sprite independent assignments and working quietly together in the office, which is one of my favorite things. We usually discuss everything after, even if there’s been a report written, because we just enjoy it.

What are you loving this week?

The Tuesday Currents

I’m currently…

writing all of the time. Some days it feels like all I do.

fluffing out loose hair from the dogs, which seems to be my favorite new mindless hobby that can be done in one minute.

spending time with my lovely aunt

prepping for another teen night this weekend

taking turns cooking with Indy, which is nice, although taking turns with dishes would also be super cool

getting my baby sister’s gift bag ready for her birthday

feeling distracted by Halloween already and simultaneously wishing it were here and that it won’t get here, because I’m looking forward to it so hard yet wondering how we’ll do any of our favorite things with a schedule like we’ve got as it stands…

running errands and getting shopping done. Delivery is so much easier, when it’s an option!

whisking Wood Sprite off to classes, archery, volunteering at the food pantry and watching my teenager just bloom. Perfume? First W-9 forms and time sheets for a first job? I can’t even.

trying to get more sleep. My anxiety has had a really negative impact this year, and that’s been the worst side effect.

trying new keto treats that Indy found! He’s so awesome at finding new things, probably because he can’t do keto anymore and feels bad about eating the good stuff in front of me. 😉

What are you up to this week?
