I hope everyone is doing well! It's been a bit of a crazy week, full of pet sitting, babysitting, writing, art, and hanging out with Tsuki. The energies this week left Tsuki and me feeling rather drained, too. I had weekend babysitting get cancelled last minute, which was nice in the sense that I got to relax at home with Tsuki instead (although I wouldn't have complained about getting some extra income). I'm guessing it was the full moon energies hitting us which caused the lethargy, but I think I heard that there's been a lot of incoming solar energies, too. If you want to learn more about the recent full moon, feel free to check out the videos below!
My dream recall was rather fuzzy when I woke up Monday morning. I was over watching the boys I babysit before school, although apparently only the older brother had school. Their parents hadn't left for work yet, and their mom asked me if I saw the newspaper outside. I hadn't, and she wasn't going to let it slide, determined to contact the newspaper provider to make sure they got it. It was about time to take the older brother to school, and he was getting ready. My deceased uncle was there and seemed to be watching the younger brother and one of his friends while the older one was at school. More happened, but that's all I could recall upon waking.
My dream recall was a bit hazy on Tuesday morning, and I was quite tempted to go back to sleep. There was something about being at a game-filled restaurant that seemed similar to Chuck E. Cheese. There seemed to be construction going on outside. This man ended up giving me some free tickets and this card with leftover credits. The card apparently would refill with $6 worth of credits every day. Turns out he was celebrating the start of his successful business with his family. There was something else about a group of remodelers coming over (at least 5) that didn't seem sure about how long anything would take. More seemed to have happened, but that's all I could remember once I woke up.
My dream recall was rather hazy when I woke up on Tuesday morning. There was something about yarn and writing. I think my aunt Angie and cousin Addie were there, too. Otherwise, the rest of the dream was a blur. Dream recollection was a complete blur when I woke up on Wednesday morning, and I was very tempted to fall back asleep Thursday morning because I was feeling extra tired. Maybe it was related to the incoming full moon energies. From what I could remember, my dream involved writing. Pretty sure it was about paint because I remembered finding a picture of an interesting house. There was something involving school, too, but the specific details were really fuzzy.
I almost fell back asleep on Friday morning; it was so tempting to remain cozy in bed and get more rest. There was something about doing research for writing articles. Not sure what it was about. Specific details were rather fuzzy when I woke up, and I couldn't remember much of anything. My dream recall was pretty hazy when I woke up on Saturday, too. There was something about writing, but the main thing I could sort of remember is being at school. I think I was taking classes myself at one point, but I know that I had been helping one of the boys I babysit regularly to get to all of his classes. That's all I could remember upon waking. This morning was more of the same; pretty sure my dream involved some kind of schooling experience and writing articles, but the specific details were veiled in a haze when I woke up.
The boys were excited to tell me about their long weekend and how they went to Greek Fest. They had a lot of fun, and it was great to see them so excited. The younger brother got some rare pets on a game he's playing, so he was super excited to share the news. We discussed memes, anime, like the hilarity of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K because they started watching it., and got into a deep conversation about bees (i.e. bumblebees vs carpenter bees vs honey bees). The older brother was telling me that there are Dragon Ball Z characters that can be found in Fort Nite now, too. They wanted to hear all about Tsuki's antics, too, such as how she's been climbing everyone in hopes of finding bugs on the ceiling. Somehow, we got into discussions about private schools and how such schools tend to be religious (but not all of them are). One of the brothers started attending a new club this week, too. They're excited about the upcoming fall festival, too, and how since they've moved close to the park where it's held, they can just walk over, grab their favorite foods, and eat it at home.
Tsuki's her typical nutty self, but she was super excited that the remodelers didn't bother to show up because it meant she had an entire week of freedom. She's had a blast checking out the in-progress remodel, climbing atop the wall and climbing inside cabinets. Having free roam to do as she pleases has made her quite happy (she's convinced she is the boss of the house). She's enjoyed sprawling out on the top of the couch, lounging on the floor, attacking her bell attached to a string (and ripping it off before proceeding to lose it somewhere around the house so we have to go get a new one), searching for bugs, and hanging out on the porch (usually perched on top of the boxes). Tsuki's such a goof and keeps things interesting.
Artwork for the week included:
I worked on more writing for Creativity Chronicles this week! It was super exciting to hit the 100th article this week! It feels rather surreal that the blog has come so far from where it started earlier this year. Feel free to check out the new art supply articles!
New articles include:
I finished watching Season 2 of The Owl House this week, and it's got me feeling ways. Granted, I'm glad they stopped the Day of Unity, but the season finale resulted in mixed feelings. Feeling kind of anxious about the state of things and hoping that season 3 will come out soon. Things just felt rather abrupt. Also wondering about the Collector and how King's father got him in the mirror in the first place. So many questions... I did enjoy the Easter egg references they sprinkled in for Amphibia, though. I'm curious to see where they head next.
It was a busy week, but it was a pretty productive one with relaxation sprinkled in. Chilling with The Owl House did wonders for my soul, but waiting for season 3 won't be the easiest. Instant gratification in today's society certainly has its drawbacks. I'll have to figure out what to do for breaks now to ensure that I don't push myself too hard working on writing articles, art, work, etc. I can get fixated on things, so having an enjoyable outlet for chilling is pretty important; it was so easy to hit pause and watch The Owl House since I was eager to learn more about that world and its story. I've been learning a lot through the AMBSDR program and the various live trainings, and I know all of my hard work will pay off from planting all of these seeds I've planted on CreativityChronicles.com. The cooler weather has started to roll in, and I'm looking forward to a beautiful fall! I'll definitely want to go sightseeing to view the gorgeous autumn colors. Take care, be gentle with yourself, and make room for fun! You deserve to enjoy your life, so do something that lights up your soul and inspires you today! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and stay blessed with love and light, everyone~
