Things I Love Thursday

Today we had an unexpected adventure with my lovely, creative, funny aunt! We bought plants, went shopping and out to lunch… so I didn’t get much done, but I sure love the time Wood Sprite and I spend with her.

This week, I’m also loving…

cat snuggles. I have three sleeping in circles next to me right now (on the right; on the left are two dogs!)

naps

paying off big bills

cleaning to Lizzo songs

The Bromance Book Club, which was adorable and almost just what I needed

English ivy

going greener

Fortune Cookie frostings (True Love is sooo good)

friends taking Wood Sprite out for fun times (does anyone else love having teens make their own plans?)

allll the Earl Grey

tiny succulents

I’m currently…

finalizing plans for every day this week

reading One Day in December (meh) and Bromance Book Club (in love so far, but only two chapters in!)

crushing so bad on Henry Caville it’s not even funny

watching Juno with Wood Sprite. Next up: My Big Fat Greek Wedding!

catching up on paperwork, adding rosters to my calendar, updating the lesson book, etc.

drinking way too much coffee

going out with Indy to see Knives Out

digging Fortune Cookie Soap’s Golden Cornucopia whipped cream

writing writing writing

watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (I’ve only been able to see the first episode of season 3 so far), Lie to Me and Prodigal Son

loving the Home for Christmas soundtrack

listening to Michael Moor’s Rumble podcast

Things I Love Thursday

This week, I’m loving…

the support of my homeschool community and my writing community. This world is full of good people. ❤

Wood Sprite having such a great time at a cast party, courteous of my family and our friends, while I was able to stay home to work.

this month's Roaring Twenties box from Fortune Cookie Soap. I'm head-over-feet for two scents, and while the other two aren't my favorites of all time, they certainly make me feel like I'm going out to a speakeasy for a night on the town.

how often I see my family now. Most of us live closer to one another than we have in years and it's so nice.

how Indy takes care of things so quickly and without complaint. He's taken care of my sister's car this week right after work, as cold as it was. My family loves to brag about him and for good reason.

how Noke snuggles with Wood Sprite as soon as they lie down, as if he's been waiting for that moment all day long. ❤

all of the opportunities that Wood Sprite has, from great classes they feel giddy about to good friends. I'm still trying to keep up with how quickly they're aging, though! I never pictured making coffee for my kid's friends after a sleepover, but here we are.

watching movies with my family. I didn't love the movies (Doolittle and Secret Life of Pets 2), but I did enjoy discussing them and playing board games afterward

going out for ice cream with friends. Well, technically the teens had ice cream and the adults got cinnamon rolls because it was just too cold outside!

a tiny bit of writing for fun in between writing for work

reading One Day in December, which I don’t technically love, but I really like the friendships in it. It’s definitely not what I’m craving, which is an adventure with a good romance thrown in (think Hunger Games or Lunar Chronicles). Any recommendations?

staying on top of deadlines, for the most part

The Witcher. Yeah, I’m a little obsessed. I may have made some stickers. Yen is my patronus for 2020, and when I have a moment of downtime I find myself watching videos of, say, Geralt being a mood
