12,806 Days Alive
Today was one of those days where I blinked and it was noon.
I feel like I’m floundering a bit at work, what with me starting training for a new aspect of my job. But I just started training today, so I’m sure I’ll catch on as I go.
I might actually get to celebrate Lugh/Lughnasadh/The First Harvest this year! We might be having a Social Bubble gathering. Ya know, the limited circle of people you socialize with while during COVID-craziness? I’m debating between making blueberry muffins or Apple bread. Or maybe both? It depends.
I can’t believe I’ve been at my job for almost eight months!
I also can’t believe the newest Baby isn’t here yet. Little Bee is the latest edition to the Wonderland family tree by way of my sister-in-law, Bubbles, and my brother, Mal. They already have Baby Bubble who should be a big sister here in a few days! I can’t wait to meet Little Bee.
I’m going slowly bonkers trying to grow out my hair. I swear that I am like three inches from saying screw it and buzzing it all off again. But I don’t really want to do that. I’m trying to let it grow, grey hairs and all. So I just have to be patient with it. Nothing happens overnight except moonrise.
Speaking of, it’s the new moon! When the Lady’s moon is new, Kiss the hand you her times two says the Rede. Which, while in the topic of the Rede, I guess since I follow the Rede fairly closely, I’m technically a Wiccan as well as a Pagan? I’ve been doing research for my Book of Shadows/Book of Stars, and I didn’t realize that was the path I seem to be walking. I still identify as Pagan, personally, because I follow no set pantheon as of now. But maybe I should be? I keep feeling tugs towards the Norse or Celtics, but don’t know much yet about them. More research to do!
I also need to get back to reading Drawing Down the Moon. I mean to lend it to J when I’m done, so they can make notes in it as well. I wonder if we will find interest in similar passages.
I started a new game on Tailor Tales today. It’s a silly little fluff game and it’s mindless fun for me. I should play another game or two of Lords of Water Deep sometime. I miss Game Nights with Jason and Britt. But they moved to Ohio, so now we have digital game nights. Which is fun, but not quite the same as sitting around hooting with laughter as we play. But thank Gods for technology; I’d be lost without my friends.
I’m on a 320+ day streak on Duolingo. Esperanto exclusively now. It’s easier with my learning from both Duolingo and a few different text books. I learn the words and the meanings behind the different prefixes and suffixes in the language. For example, patro is father, patroj is fathers, and gepatroj is parents of both genders. The terminal –j, pronounced like a “y”, is a plural marker. And the prefix ge- means both sexes together. It’s a bit binary, but they do have neutrals in the language so there’s that.
I’m behind on Camp NaNoWriMo, but I’m not too worried about it. I’ll write tomorrow, I think.
Mentally, I’m frazzled but functional. Emotionally I’m tired and lonely, even though I got to see a friend this weekend and spent the day with them.
I think I’m going to head to bed. Take your meds, folks!
