Right now, I’m…
making sick Indy drink All The Tea, and this is the only one he’ll drink
snuggling the kittehs. Gizmo keeps sleeping on me at night and I’m not entirely sure why. Normally she plops on Wood Sprite for the night but lately she wants to sleep with me. Then there’s Pumpkin, who wants to live on my desk, especially if it means knocking everything off it.
gently stretching. Sleeping through the night comes with stiffness in the morning! Naps don’t do that to me, and I’m much more used to running on them.
reserving a bunch of DVDs for “Musical March,” even though we watched maybe 1/3 of Fantasy February!
writing so hard and still not meeting all of my goals. Wood Sprite and I did hours of homeschooling yesterday and I wrote 12 blogs and a long outline before leaving for a class… and I still have a bunch of goals yet unmet. I know I set our goals a bit too high every day, which is something I need to work on, and I’d love more time to read…
cursing my ancient laptop. Now that I have an up-to-date phone I’m even more impatient with my machine. I’m going to have to stop dawdling and get one. I just hate making big purchases like this because, unlike most areas of my life, I’m never 100% sure if I picked the right one. Indecisiveness is one of my pet peeves and it’s super irritating, especially when I know how many fake reviews of products there are out there. I’m the same way with mattresses and shoes, of all things, and will take recs of all three.
trying to make sure I give to the Survivors Ongoing Support Fund each week
loving my dates with Indy. Standing classes multiple nights each week means multiple dates!
playing witchy BINGO with my sister, who, when I said, “I got a BUNCH of BINGOS!” said, “I’m not surprised.”
cleaning up for company this week
loving Mrs. Maisel
flirting with my husband. After our date, he texted me, “Not to be clingy but that was fun. Do it again soon?” I wrote back, “OMG it’s been an hour stalker!” Speaking of which, I’ve been super, super choosy about what I share on social media lately and it delights me. I share photos with specific people I want via messenger or text, and I’m keeping the most beautiful, personal, heartbreaking, wonderful, hilarious and moving stuff in my journal, just for me. It makes me so happy and it’s funny how many times I’ve learned this lesson.
loving my Grounds for Change coffee, which may become a new staple in this house
planning birthdays and vacation days (and hopefully a trip or two; it’s been a while!)
trying out perfume samples: Hexennacht’s Sinterklass, which I love, and Morning Star, which is nice but not a favorite. I also used my Haus of Gloi points up to make my own perfume and while I like it, I don’t smell the main ingredient I’d requested.
trying out different phone limits for Wood Sprite. Brains that are 14 years old don’t need all that tech. I’m firm on this. That said, without it, they don’t stay in contact with friends in 2020. They just don’t. Tech has always been a difficult road to walk, even in setting my own limits, as you can imagine for someone who works from home.
What are you up to?
