The Tuesday Currents

Wood Sprite's creatures are amazing. If I'd had her originality age age 10, I think I'd have published my own comic by 20!

Rocking to… the sound of Super Mario Brothers 3. Wood Sprite and Indy are playing, but mainly because she wants to jump around in Goomba’s shoe in World 5.


Drinking… Coffee

ReadingBazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King

Writing… Blogs, poems, journal entries, novellas

Watching… Over the weekend we introduced Wood Sprite to E.T. I’m afraid that she only liked it and did not love it. We also watched Hotel Transylvania 2 and Miss Congeniality. Obviously, Indy was off for the weekend, but he spent the majority of it doing yard work.

Planning… Valentine’s activities! We have a party that we need to make a mailbox for (on Friday), but we also have a sleepover coming up and I am thinking… edible play dough.

Making… Cool personalized tracking sheets for my work on Halloween paper!

Wanting… a Science Center membership. I am definitely budgeting that in for next Cyber Monday!

Monday’s Music

Today’s song is in honor of one of my BFFs, who’s FINALLY back in town after vacation! Missed you, S!

What are you up to this week, readers? Wood Sprite has filmmaking club, an astronaut class, Minecraft group, another library class, a Valentine party, a computer games meetup and a sleepover! Whew. We also have a concert and I have a mom’s night and a sister’s night. It’s another very careful week of scheduling work for me!

Things I Love Thursday

Giant crocodiles. Always gotta love giant crocs. I'd love to have this one in my yard.

It’s been a busy (eugh, that word!) and productive week around here. We have volunteered at a food pantry, gone to Live Action Role Playing, picked up a bunch of donated craft supplies for 4-H club, had a playdate, went on a date while Wood Sprite went to a party (at 11 AM! Homeschooling rocks), gone to the library a few times, held our monthly leadership club… Whew! We still have more to go tomorrow. I’ll say I’m loving ALL of these things this week, plus…

Salt & Smoke’s toasted ravioli. They are unlike any other I’ve ever had.

Co-op activities. I love being a part of one, I love that my kid is getting to know other kids, I love looking at my big schedule and seeing mostly free things because so many parents are so generous with their time and creativity… I love all of it.

Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Short stories are my favorite type of lit and King’s are my favorites anyway. I don’t love it as much as Nightmares & Dreamscapes… but I haven’t finished it yet. And could the cover art be any more amazing? I really want a copy for my office.

Wood Sprite’s new overalls. She’s wanted them her whole life and her Pepa made it happen. They are adorable.

Two T-Bird wins in one week–and one was a shutout!

The enthusiasm of kids. Whether it’s playing superheroes or cooing over the rabbits or just being so enraptured in whatever they’re doing, I just love it. I want them all to keep that as they age.

Laura Grace Weldon’s blog. I just love her lists, like this week’s list of boredom busters. We haven’t needed them this week (ha!) but all of them are so much fun, they’re worth making time for even when you’re not bored!

What are you loving this week?
