Writing with sore fingers! Wood Sprite and I worked on clearing off some wall space (and lots of other projects) yesterday and I had some tacks go up my nails farther than I’d have liked.
Planning a fun mini-history unit I’m running with Wood Sprite and some of her friends this week. It will take a few meetings to get through!
Enjoying the parts of summer I like, like slower days, lots of family time, summer blockbusters and our new cat, Pumpkin! And I’m simultaneously NOT enjoying the parts of summer that I never enjoy, from the heat and bugs to the swelling of the house. It’s no secret that this is my least favorite season but I always try to make the best of it!
Gearing up for summer camps! Wood Sprite went to 4-H camp last week and loved it. She’s got art, poetry, theater, magic and horse camps this summer. She’s also going to meet with Spokes again, which she’s very excited about.
Watching Deadpool 2, Ant-Man, Infinity War, Batman vs. Superman (ugh), Sherlock Gnomes (double ugh) and the lovely One Day at a Time.
Reading Ordinary Magic for our summer tween book club. I’m also reading Patton Oswalt’s Silver Screen Fiend, which I’m loving. I could just lose myself in his use of language alone.
Listening to Terri Windling’s Tunes for a Monday Morning list over at Myth & Moor. Her recommendations are usually wonderful and today’s were no different.
Planning fall! We’ve got some weekly state projects, book lists, nature projects, science labs and much more in store. We’ve also got some fun themes like Greek mythology, Shark Week, etc. coming up.
Wishing for a chance to swim sometime soon. We have the next few days pretty well booked up but I need to get in a pool soon!
What are you up to today?
