A perfect day for enjoying our reading nook! (I’m reading _Chilling Effect_ which was described to me as “Firefly, but Mal is a woman and River is a bunch of cats” and it’s freaking delightful.
Work has been extra extra lately and I’m trying (and mostly failing) to get into a better routine which encompasses all the things I want to touch in a day.
I’ve heard several people mention a sense of waiting for summer to come and realizing it is almost gone. I count myself among them. The early rain here in Austin lends to that and I can’t quite figure out what season I’m supposed to be feeling.
But I’ve got my personal laptop back from the computer doctor and I’m not on-call for work for another few months, so maybe we’ll meet here again before another month passes.
That’s how it goes around here. If I don’t commit to daily (or at least scheduled) postings, it is far too easy to let the days get away from me. Especially when there is still not much to report.
This week, on top of keeping up with my daily Artist’s pages, I’ve felt very motivated to declutter more and more. In thinking more about who I am and how I want to grow and where I want to be, there is just a lot of stuff that doesn’t play any role in that. Nor does it spark joy or bring value or whatever other criteria I tried applying.
There’s still plenty to go but I’m feeling lighter and it’s nice to feel the space in my surroundings translate into the feeling of lightness and space in my brain.
