Weekly Reparations

May be an image of text that says 'Reparations oundtable 1 Positive News Roundup -a TEAM IS WORKING WITH THE SOLE FOCUS OF GETTING A DV SURVIVOR AND THEIR KIDS HOUSED AFTER A COUPLE YEARS OF LIFE IN A HOTEL. -Î JUST GOT A JOB AT $17/HOUR AFTER YEARS OF UNDER- AND UNEMPLOYMENT! -L'S BUSINESS IS BOOMING! SHE'S LOOKING TO PURCHASE NEW SOFTWARE TO AID HER CRAFT. HAS A NEW BABY! THIS GROWING FAMILY NEEDS SUPPORT WITH RENT. -0 JUST GOT FACIAL FEMINIZATION SURGERY! Keep the wins coming: bit.ly/RRgeneralfund2021'

I give and share at Reparations Roundtable and I thought it would reach more people if I started sharing on my blogs. They also have a Patreon to make giving automatic if that works best for you.

💜It’s time for weekly reparations! 💜

The latest update from Reparations Roundtable marks not only some needs we can help meet this week but some celebrations, too! Check out some of the wins by Black MaGes (marginalized genders) below. Reparations work helps make these wins possible. With some community care, including this assistance, people can flourish. This week’s Reparations Roundtable Patreon quote says it best: “But sometimes the little ripples of change we strive to create give the Black MaGes we assist the agency to determine their own path in life. And when Black MaGes are able to thrive, amazing things can happen.”

What better way to celebrate Pride this weekend than to give so people can continue to thrive?

These fundraisers need YOUR help! Please give, boost, and share!

The Tuesday Currents

Happy Harvest Moon, upcoming Mabon and Libra season! Apples and pumpkins and falling leaves for everyone on this spooky season eve. I’m currently…

trying extra hard to stay on task because it’s fall and we’re busy as ever

listening to witchy playlists on Spotify and abolishing my only-in-September rule for this song. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of random traditions this year. They were supposed to be fun. When they aren’t anymore, let’s get rid of them and make new, fun ones, shall we?

pulling less-than-satisfying cards. Today’s Affirminator reminds me to appreciate ups and downs, and that even getting puked on makes for a great story someday. Sheesh.

getting a Chrysocolla for the Full Moon. I’ve wanted to get a new rock each full moon–we used to do that before Covid–but haven’t been able to. We tried a new-to-us shop and fell so hard for it. It’s glorious. And when I told the woman at the register my birthday she congratulated me. I love it when that happens and Indy’s like, “Why did they say that?” 11-11, baby.

really feeling these allergies! I have fallen behind on my self-care terribly this month and that includes my allergy medicine…

working my first shift for the organization I trained with all summer

working around Indy’s work schedule changes (and change-backs because REALLY)

working on a bunch of projects, between our house, work, 4-H and homeschooling

talking to WS about college! Yep, that age is HERE.

trying to get so many knots out of Miss Sally, who keeps typing over me with her fluffy self. I try to brush her a few times a week but it’s not enough. She needs it daily!

moving around furniture and giving a bunch of things to my baby sister. All were given to us at some point, too. We like to swap things around a lot in our family!

reading more graphic novels

making plans for WS’s birthday

drinking white chocolate pumpkin coffee (DIY from home; sorry, I don’t know where you can get an actual latte!)
