So long since I last posted. Too long. I have no excuses or explanations. Everything feels low to me right now. The mood, the culture, my family, and even my own health. I either have a stubborn sinus infection or an autumn allergy or this is all COVID related. 

I'm back over at DW because Idol is going into an experimental season - Survivor Idol! If you want on the island, check into Idol and see if there are any coveted spots left. I'm not sure how I feel about it all. Yet. I despise competitiveness in creativity, but this is competitiveness for the sake of competing...so the game might be worth the candle. We shall see. At any rate, I've got to get writing again!

Extended family is a drag. My mother is struggling but finally broke down and got on the diabetic version of Nutrisystem and physically is doing very well. My local sister is a disaster. Her kids are seriously COVID depressed and she won't listen to a word of advice. My other sister back East is a disaster. The full-time grammy & grampy experiment is becoming an exercise in utter exhaustion and aggression. Now my nephew has moved in with my neice and her husband, my sister and her husband, the toddler and the dog. Powder keg. 

I'm googling Maple Sugar Farms for sale and longing for Vermont. Just me. And the trees and taps, of course. 

Nuclear family is okay, but both kids are feeling stalled because of the virus and I get that.

I think back to March when I was all Disney princess twirling in a meadow and go huh.

I now own 70 Oates books and am a dragon circling her golden hoard. Taking a reading break to knit and craft. Working with felt a lot and it is a joy. Small people and pumpkins and scarecrows. Easy to assemble in a day or two and the satisfaction and accomplishment are legit. I would share some photos, but don't know how to on DW. 

Hope you all are well! I will try to post again soon!


Back over at Dreamwidth! Survivor Idol is a thing! And it's at Dreamwidth!
