Things I Love Thursday

Even the stuffed animals play in this house.

Fall is just around the corner, which generates both excitement and worry in my house. It’s our favorite season and we have a couple of road trips planned, but it’s also our busiest season with co-op and activities like Girl Scouts and 4-H (which never really ends when it comes to paperwork and behind the scenes work!) starting back up again. We’re already feeling The Busy and trying to keep going with the flow! Here are a few things I love this week.

My new fridge! My parents are moving and we’ve been visiting and trying to help when we can, but their fridge won’t fit in their new home. Ours has been leaking for years so it’s pretty exciting to get rid of it and have a new one.

Coffee with Indy. We bought these little waffle pastries to put on top of our cappuccinos and it was lovely.

Binge-watching The Defenders in a day. It’s been a long time since I’ve done something like that!

Sally perking up. She’s finally stopped sneezing and she’s gaining weight, yay!

Cutting responsibilities. I’m counting down the days (34!) until I’m finished with one obligation, then I’ll start the countdown for the next!

Pop rocks shenanigans.

Not Back to School Ice Cream Day. We had it at Coldstone Creamery again and the owner was just as hilarious and awesome as last time. Thank you, Karen!

Girls’ night with L and S! We went to Mellow Mushroom (YUM) and grocery shopping together, which prompted L to say that we’ve crossed a new friendship threshold. Ha!

What do you love this week?

Indy doing tricks for GISHWHES!


Reading… Jessica Jones

Writing… The usual

Drinking… nothing

Watching… The Defenders. It wasn’t as awesome as the Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage series but I enjoyed it. I felt about as guilty as I do when I eat a bunch of junk food (which is silly) after I binge-watched it, which was the first time I’ve done that in about a year!

Listening to… Van Halen (Wood Sprite’s Artist of the Week, a new thing we’re doing on Tuesdays)

Planning… moving things with my parents (they are moving closer!), fall co-op stuff, house projects, homeschool projects.

Wanting… a bunch of money to fix up our house, human apathy and pettiness to become extinct, and a coffee.
