hanging out with four of my besties at a science camp while Wood Sprite does some engineering and robotics with the incredible MIT Spokes team
wishing for Indy to get the promotion he wants and would be so awesome at and truly enjoy
missing Sky and loving Pumpkin, our new kitty. Sometimes it feels like it’s still too soon, and I still think I see Sky somewhere she’s supposed to be (my bed, her cubby, her other spots) and I just cry and cry but it’s getting better.
trying intermittent fasting, which is oddly refreshing but still not helping with the sleep issues
digging getting smaller. People are starting to notice and it makes me feel more weird than pleased, but I LOVE wearing sleeveless shirts in the summer and just feeling better overall.
enjoying my own homemade lotion made from coconut oil and a vanilla oil that smells so good I have a hard time not eating it when I slather it on
loving my new ThinkGeek backpack, courtesy of my awesome sister who visited a few days ago! She brought a bunch of goodies and my mom came the next day and brought Wood Sprite socks, which were on my list of things to take care of this week!
writing All The Words
building fall plans out of around a dozen programs we want to do
trying out Build Your Library’s Harry Potter study while we finish book six, head into seven next week and attend a Potter trivia night at the library at the end of July. I’m getting a little obsessed over BYL, especially Emily’s YouTube videos, which I watch while ferociously looking up her book recommendations and musing over how she’d totally be in my bestie circle if she lived closer.
cleaning out spaces. It’s taking longer than I had planned but what doesn’t lately? Six huge bags of donations went out the door this morning between Wood Sprite’s room, my office and the kitchen and I have much more to do.
looking forward to a weekend of archery, marching, a play and some games with my family
enjoying mini-dates with Indy while Wood Sprite takes free art camps at the library. Yesterday we browsed Target and poked fun at the names of men’s body wash.
reading I Am Groot comics, Hellboy comics, Patton Oswalt’s Silver Screen Fiend and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway’s Ordinary Magic
What are you up to this week?
