๐Ÿฉน As of today, I am fully vaccinated!

๐Ÿข Last month, we started offering in-building services at the library. I now work onsite most of my workweek, which keeps me centered and positive, but I’m still overscheduled and working quite a bit on my days off.

โœ๐Ÿป I’m working on the second draft of my short story “Midnight Oracle” (although it needs a new title).

๐Ÿ“š I read faster than I can update this page! Check out my Reading page.

๐Ÿงถ Next up on the needles: a drop-stitch scarf with Malabrigo Caprino. I’m practicing my yarn-overs!

๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ Oblation came out with their first ever fountain pen ink, Oblation Olive, and it’s gorgeous! For more pen and ink recommendations, see my Analog page.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ I’m studying Spanish with Duolingo.

๐ŸŽฎ I’m still loving Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

๐ŸŽฒ I’m trying to get a board game day going with my gaming crew. Are you interested? Join our Discord server!

๐ŸŽง For the past month I’ve been listening to Misophone, Class Actress, Tosca, Nine Inch Nails, Billie Eilish, Ruel, Miley Cyrus, Tunng and Abigail Barlow.

๐Ÿ“บ FunkyPlaid and I are slowly making our way through the second season of “The Leftovers”.

๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ Essential work-from-home gear: candles from Frostbeard Studio, especially Christmas at the Burrow (cookies, cinnamon, vanilla) and Headmaster’s Office (fireplace, cedarwood, lemon).

๐Ÿฅ˜ I also recommend Green Chef, a meal-kit delivery service to cut down on grocery trips. Their food is certified gluten-free and their packaging is made from recycled, reusable, and/or compostable materials.

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป You made it to the end! Thanks for reading my “Now” page. If you have your own website, you should make one, too.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
