I hope everyone is doing well! It's been a pretty sleepy week, one where it was pretty tempting to just stay snuggled indoors rather than doing much. The week started off cold and icy, resulting in a snow day on Monday for the boys I babysit/tutor. It was a bit warmer by the end of this week, but it was extremely rainy. Recently, we had the full moon in Leo, so if you'd like to learn more about it, feel free to check out the following videos:
My dream recall was pretty fuzzy when I woke up Monday morning. I think it had something to do with travel, but specific details were elusive. Tuesday morning wasn't any better, although, I got startled awake at some point. It was like I woke up early, convinced I was late yet still had time to sleep? Not really sure what that's about. Dream recall was quite hazy (but that's probably because I could have used more sleep lol). Wednesday morning was more of the same; recalling dream details was a complete blur.
Dream recall was fairly hazy, but I could remember some details when I woke up Thursday morning. The dream had involved travel. I was with this small group. We here heading towards l/looking for some building. People were commenting on how most of the buildings in the area seemed kind of sus. There was something about stopping at some kind of buffet or something, too. Not sure what else happened, but that's what I could remember once awake.
I woke up feeling less tired Friday morning, but my dream recall seemed rather fuzzy. There might have been something involving crystals, but I couldn't say what specifically transpired. I did wake up with my arm aching, which threw me off until I remembered that I had been holding my coat, April's coat, and some of the clothes April wanted to buy the previous night. It all made sense then (lol). I was able to sleep in Saturday morning and just chill in bed with music, which was so nice. Dream recall was still pretty fuzzy, but I think travel was somehow involved. Not really sure what for or where to, but I think that was the general vibe. Sleep was a bit tricky this morning; I woke up a few times, not really sure why, so I was a bit groggy when I finally got up. Dream recall was pretty fuzzy, too.
The boys were super excited to get a surprise snow day on Monday. Considering how icy it was, I was grateful to not have to venture outside (my mom had ended up falling while going outside, but she was okay). Mornings were pretty slow for the boys, but I didn't blame them; the cold, dreary winter can do that. They were going to go to a play over the weekend and seemed pretty excited about it. Otherwise, it was a pretty chill week.
Tsuki had a pretty chill week, full of rest, relaxation, and play. She loved getting real cozy and snuggled up with blankets, even opting to cuddle up with my feet and legs. Tsuki also enjoyed birdwatching from her window shelf, stealing my sister's sweatshirt, and going into hyped-up play mode. She's such an adorable, goofy (and sometimes ferocious) kitty.

If you're like me, you're probably feeling a bit more withdrawn and lethargic; even if you aren't experiencing the winter season like I am, life is always full of cycles and seasons. It's okay if you need to do less right now and take it easy. It's okay to take things slower and do less. You're human; humans come with areas of growth and areas of challenge. You don't have to have all the answers or have it all together. It's okay to be the work-in-progress, and it's okay to have your emotions. You're not any less for it. All anyone can do at any given time is their best, so as long as you're doing your best, that's enough. Don't beat yourself up; instead, be gentle with yourself and show yourself compassion. Even if you need to take some extra time for TLC and relaxation right now, that doesn't mean it will always be this way. Even if winter is here right now, the spring will come again. You're doing just fine, so remember to breathe and keep moving forward, no matter how small your steps. They will add up quick! Wishing you a wonderful rest of your weekend!
