Some things I’m loving this week are…
Krista Tippet’s On Being podcast. It’s been suggested to me by a few people and I finally made time to listen to it and it’s food for my heart.
meeting deadlines on time
rare moments of mental clarity. It’s in short supply this year, and at least there’s a known cause for it–and at least I’m not alone.
fall planner stickers (and the cool Death’s head hawkmoth washi tape my husband found)
Bruce Springsteen on repeat
neighbors who care
Villainous Wax making my house smell so deliciously in season
making socially distant plans for fall. We’re talking graveyards! Spooky sightings (the three of us only)! Apple and pumpkin picking (maybe)! The drive-in (we still have our Groupon from spring)! All the fun!
Wood Sprite’s creative writing class, which has the kid SO interested and inspired! All it takes is an interesting, engaging teacher (who’s also not mom)! The kid is full of ideas and stories and I’m here for it.
more online resources than you can shake a stick at. Seriously, I wish my brain could just process it all while I get things done (or vice versa!).
my dogs being safe and sound after they got out of the yard and disappeared for four hours on Tuesday night! We were just about sick to our stomachs worrying. Both had scraped up paw pads and must’ve ran for a long time, and I had just remarked that they had to be bored with me working all day and Wood Sprite in classes. Yep! They’d been bored, all right! I wish they could tell me where they went. I’m just glad they’re home.
running errands with my guy. We don’t even get out of the car much but it’s nice.
Not Back to School Ice Cream Day! It’s an annual tradition and this year we’re going to Andy’s for the first time.
The Outsider, although I hated a LOT of the changes at the end of the series (I loved many of the earlier changes). I get some of them were to encourage another season, which I really don’t think is necessary. That said, I’d love to see Holly have her own series.
playing goofy games together, like Name That Tune
the library, as ever
