Reading… Coraline and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix with Wood Sprite and Indy, Bazaar of Bad Dreams.
Listening to… Holiday music! Now that it’s after December 1 I’m totally okay with it… for the next three weeks, anyway.
Drinking… Sparkling Blood Orange Water
Watching… Red. It’s on while I write and Indy sleeps.
Writing… the usual
Planning… Indy’s birthday plans, two sister lunches, holiday plans, a visit with my aunt, rehearsals with Wood Sprite (she is working on several scenes in three different pieces of media for her winter showcase), mom’s nights, game night, 4-H activities, end of the year reviews, etc. I’m also putting in some countdown calendars that count down to the days until I can relinquish a few responsibilities in 2018! Oh, I can’t wait. I’ll have more time to write my fiction once this happens.
Wanting… to be able to fix issues and move forward cleanly and with understanding. Even though I’ve talked to people who’ve dealt with issues I’m dealing with now and understand the similar obstacles (people, mainly) faced it’s still so frustrating, especially the time it takes to spend on things. I think once Wood Sprite’s in college or working or whatever she decides I’ll definitely be volunteering in an entirely different field. Something with less human interaction that doesn’t seep into home life would be great.
Up with an itchy, sort-of-sore throat. 😦 Time to get more allergy meds!
Reading… A Wrinkle in Time with Wood Sprite
Listening to… The parodies we sing about pretty much everything, every day. I used to write them down and I know I’d love the memories if I did it again!
Watching… Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Stranger Things season 2 and Penny Dreadful
Writing… the usual
Planning… a spring open house, interstate exchange, 4-H elections and activities, meeting dates, a birthday dinner and gaming night, a Scouts trip, logistics for rehearsals and theater shows, activities to do with my niece (who comes to play every week now!), Thanksgiving, a Friendsgiving (which will just replace our usual monthly group game night!) and attending another, movies to see (we’ve been avoiding the theater since Wood Sprite got her braces), mom’s nights, better boots for Indy, slippers for me…
Wanting… Said slippers after the pets ruined mine! I miss going barefoot but I get too many animal splinters that way. Also? A Thai tea. Oh that sounds fabulous right now.
Reading... A Wrinkle in Time with Wood Sprite, Order of the Phoenix with Indy and Wood Sprite
Writing… The usual
Drinking… Fizzy water
Watching… The Addams Family
Listening to… Halloween mix
Planning… Another pumpkin chuckin’ (along with a tween/teen party), birthday plans, a just-us weekend for Wood Sprite and me followed by one for just Indy and me, 4-H elections and project committees, tech breaks, game nights, two Friendsgivings, mom’s nights.
Wanting… to use next year’s planner. This homemade one is about 20 pounds. (Same as the last two weeks! Reminder: No more binder planners!)
