A little bit of good, a little bit of bad… Seems like it’s just not a Weekly Wrap without three different curveballs hitting life at once, right? 😵💫
Life Beyond the Blog
It’s a mixed bag this week. On the not so great side, my mom is still struggling with COVID pretty badly. She’s the type of person who wants to get up and go, so not only is it an awful physical illness, it’s really impacting her mental health as well. As for my mental health, it’s working in tandem with my body to manifest fun new physical symptoms of anxiety. Nobody’s having fun, I can tell you that much.
On the flip side, though, my sister is improved to the point that she’s getting tested today to see if she’s at last COVID free! It’s a huge relief to see at least one case in this house finally back on the upswing. After almost two weeks of quiet except for coughing, it was really nice to hear one of her one-woman off-Broadway shower performances again. (Even nicer would be if she took shorter showers, since we only have one bathroom, but that is a battle I will pick another day.)
I’m also finally returning to some crafty projects long set aside, thanks to the return of GBBO! It’s my favorite background show, since it’s easy to watch while doing something else at the same time. Just last night, I cut out fabric for three pairs of pajama pants that I should be able to make over the coming days. It’s visible progress, which is so valuable at the moment.

The Week Ahead
More than anything, I want this coming week to be the week no one has COVID in the house. Of course, since that’s not totally in my control, I’m going to have to work on other things instead. At the top of my list is those pajama pants, since they’ll be comfy and cute (ideal!), along with reading at least three books. If all goes well, I might be able to get a head start on my October and November posts, leaving me more time for NaNoWriMo in a couple months.
Oh no. It’s actually more like a month and a few days away. Oh no. 😬
Let’s table that terrifying thought for now, and focus on just the next few days. Books and pajamas and COVID recovery. That sounds good, doesn’t it?
I hope you’re all staying safe and enjoying the weekend! May the week to come bring you nothing but joy, and hopefully I’ll hear from you somewhere along the way! 💛
