Some things I love this week include…
meeting those deadlines! Whoop, whoop!
watching Jumanji and Toy Story 3 with the fam
kitty snuggles. I swear they’re psychic. That or they just want to lay on me when I use the pretty sherpa Indy got me.
Said sherpa. Hot dog, it’s the berries! Indy could’ve brought anything he wanted home when he won that contest and he brought me a soft blanket. ❤
Wood Sprite placing a cookie order with our favorite Brownie, who called and made her first sales pitch over the phone ever to Wood Sprite. The most adorable moment of 2020 so far, hands-down.
laughing over my dad's stories. We LOVE his wild stories. This one was about a bunch of women diving into bins at Goodwill, which I tend to call The Goodwill, for some reason. I bet it's because of The Will, who I was beginning to think was good until he wasn’t, and now I want to drop-kick him every time I see his Funko face.
catching up my lesson log. I’m always catching it up! By the time I get to jotting down all we’ve done, we’ve done a dozen more things.
pancakes and pajamas! Eckerts is bringing it back and we’re so excited. We went last year and had a blast.
twirling in my new dress
making movie references with Wood Sprite, which is just the bee’s knees
clarity and focus exercises. My mind goes all over the place, especially in anxiety mode, and I’m experimenting with some thoughts that take me out of my body, focusing on important things in the world I’d like to help with. I can see how this could actually be more anxiety-inducing in many ways, but for now it’s really helping to center me.
going out with the fam to celebrate Dad’s birthday tonight! Barbecue, here we come!
Home for Christmas. I’ve only seen two episodes but I like it so far! I’m trying to watch it while I walk but I often end up just walking with Leslie, though I often add my headphones and hand weights. My money is on Johanne’s barista friend, doctor colleague… or her roommate! Maybe she’ll just brave the holidays alone.
Fortune Cookie Soap is launching a Strawberry Shortcake collection tomorrow and I can’t even
I know I posted about it already, but the Ben Solo “Holding Out for a Hero” video. I could watch it every day at this point.
seeing strangers’ faces light up for various reasons
reading with the family. We have a schedule set for 2020 and we’re on track. I’m a little nervous about venturing into The Hunger Games territory this summer, but just because I’m the reader aloud while we travel and I cry a LOT during those books.
using a bunch of 20s slang
singing duets with Wood Sprite (“Poor Unfortunate Souls” was the last one, and the dogs were eager to fill in for Flotsam and Jetsam)
Solstice Scents! I ordered two during their big end of year sale and they sent a little sample along with a bunch of pretty artwork featuring other scents. I love the little cards they come in and added some to my journal; the rest are being used as bookmarks. I get asked if I really have enough books going for all the bookmarks I talk about and the answer is YES. Sometimes I just leave them at spots I know I want to revisit soon, too! My favorite bookmarks will always be photos, but I really like these, too.
Filling in my gorgeous planner. I don’t think I’m ever going to NOT talk about it, I love it that much. I even did more customization last night. It may be the Uncalendar all the way from now on!
my midliner highlighters and the color schemes I’m making in my planner. A brown highlighter is everything.
so many teen offerings in our co-op this semester! For years I practically begged more parents my kid’s age to offer more things for them to do other than dumping them off at my house once a month (or going to the things I set up) and in the past semester it definitely increased. This semester there’s more than ever! Thanks for showing up, parents, it means the world to us. ❤
all-nighters being over for the week? I hope so! They wear me out.
sleeping well… and sleeping with a bunch of funny and weird dreams, likely due to all the garlic I'm eating! I dreamed I took one of our cats out to dinner with me, that Indy was climbing on top of racks of hay bales at Lowe's while I was dressed as Daphne from Scooby-Doo (she was actually one of my first crushes as a kid), and that we bought an SUV and Indy stuck a giant unicorn Feisty Pet in its back seat. When I say a ton of garlic, think chopped raw, powdered AND fried in my salad… all at once.
Pinterest sending me a bunch of Jim Hopper pins. Hubba hubba.
