This week I’m…
using a new ice cream bucket for our daily compost runs in my new bin. It’s the little things that make life easier!
reading all night and loving it! Oh, I wish I could every night! I didn’t even love the books (Magic in the Wind and Naked in Death) but it felt like getting back inside my own skin for a little while.
creating a new binder (9th grade is officially here tomorrow!) and lesson book for the year
trying to figure out classes for the rest of the year
celebrating Pride at home with the kid. So far, painted rainbow figures and a rainbow tree to come soon!
writing so hard I had to trim a nail. It was just getting in the way! Lots of plot bunnies lately, too.
helping Wood Sprite navigate teen stuff
watching cats face plant in their sleep (Gizmo is right now as I write this!)
loving my new bee house
still loving the library’s curbside service!
drinking all the tea and coffee while I fast, which is super easy again after just one day of struggling. Why do I ever stop doing this? Oh yeah, because food is fun.
not digging today’s sample perfume (Carnival of Ghosts from Black Baccara, which makes me smell like anise, ew) but LOVING yesterday’s, which was Hexennacht’s Mophine
What are you up to?
When I first heard about Grimoire, I thought the hype was all about the cute bottles and wax seals. NOPE. I’m hooked.

This week I’m loving…
my garden. When I finally remembered to bring my phone to take a picture, it was this small! That box is mostly green now.
spooky journal aesthetics
virus protection (also, masks and people who wear them)
making healthy choices, even though I’m not loving how it feels today. At ALL. But I will love how it feels by next week.
romantic reads, which are helping (a little) with my anxiety. Sleep helps more.
online art classes
modern tech and tools
nighttime showers in the dark, with candles
new moon chalking with my kid and lightning bugs (no, we didn’t use them, but they provided ambiance)
Indy getting work
Wood Sprite finally enjoying math
having way too many books to read
trusting my gut
What are you loving this week?
spending time with my plants when I’m feeling down
taking extra magnesium for the same reason. Seriously, my SAD kicks in during the summer, and not having central air anymore, in addition to social distancing, has exacerbated it
visiting with friends (more than 6 feet apart, with masks, outside) and appreciating them so, so much
swatting spiders away from my desk
burning a lovely Serpent & Flame candle
navigating some tough teen waters and Indy’s sudden straight 12-hour-shifts
calling out racism
watching The Boss
reading Get a Life, Chloe Brown, Stamped From the Beginning and P.S. I Like You
not sleeping much
transitioning to high school, the annual new binder and lesson planner, the works
and not having time for much else, between homeschooling and work
