The Tuesday Currents

The critters tend to gather around Wood Sprite whether she’s sick or not.


Nursing an on-again, off-again sick Wood Sprite. She’s thrown up twice today, feels better, then feels weak again. 😦  I sure hope she’s well enough for Halloween tomorrow. We canceled a bunch of fun Halloween plans today to stay home. But that means we were…

Watching a bunch of Halloween movies. In two days we saw The Watcher in the Woods, The Creature From the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Zombieland, The Haunting, Hocus Pocus and The Addams Family. We also watched The Cat Returns.

Planning Sci-Fi-Vember! We’re watching and reading tons of sci-fi, and I drew little alien head icons next to each night’s plan. (We won’t be doing this on our busy nights, of course.)

Extending my intermittent fasting per some Jason Fung reading. Some cycles will be longer than 24 hours (which is what I’ve been doing most days) and I’m really excited to see if the mental clarity is what’s promised. Granted, I probably need to sleep more to make it really work…

Planning our annual 31 Holiday Nights (movies, crafts, light scavenger hunts, the works), LOTR marathon and HP marathons. We’ve decided to just stick to holiday movies this December and then do the other two in January this year. We always end with It’s a Wonderful Life on New Year’s Eve, which is weird since it’s a Christmas movie. I think the theme just really fits in with our hopes for each New Year.

Doodling with Wood Sprite. She asked me to draw with her and I said okay, just for a little while because I have a lot of writing to do. An hour later, she was passed out and I was still drawing.

Carving pumpkins to classic horror movie soundtracks

Planning the rest of the week. We have a live Star Wars show (with puppets, I believe!), co-op classes, the annual 4-H dinner, a 4-H service day (a park cleanup), a sleepover and a presentation on Mary Shelley… all if Wood Sprite is well.

Planning our family holiday trip, which will be mostly in lieu of gifts (Wood Sprite will still get a few things to open; all the kid’s asked for is books). This year it’s Kansas City.

What are you up to this week?
