It’s Friday; I’m in Love #7

08.15.14 / writing letters on the lawn

writing letters on the lawn yesterday

This week has been rather wonderful and productive. My favorite day, I think, was Wednesday: sitting on the floor with craft supplies sprawled out around me, listening to podcasts, and decorating my filofax. I kept seeing awesome + inspiring ones on pinterest, so I decided I wanted mine to look organized in a super cute way too. I did find myself wishing I had some other options of washi tape, but I worked just fine with what I had. I’ve also kept up with my daily word count for the first time in weeks and got a fair amount of reading done. All in all, one of my favorite weeks lately.

The Nerdist podcast ♥ Kristin’s awesome blogiversary giveaway that I secretly don’t want to share with people so I can win ♥ mysteriously meowing Charlie in the entryway ♥ browsing Etsy for crystals ♥ The X-Files–I really love The X-Files ♥ drawing in my sketchbook + making my own art for the apartment ♥ waiting for my new owl Scentsy warmer ♥ writing letters to new pen pals ♥ mix CDs ♥ Jessikat’s Holistic Health series ♥ decorating my filofax ♥ browsing boots + boot socks for fall ♥ Starbucks peach green tea lemonade ♥ hanging up our new bedroom mirror

Three ways to make next week great:

  • Finish my Tarot notes. I’ve been making notes on each card in a cool little notebook I’ve decorated for quite honestly a year now. I started them in Spring 2012 and somehow have yet to finish. I’m close, though; I have maybe nine or ten of the Major Arcana left. Then I can start my 52 week project of doing a reading every week. I get worn out making all the notes, though. I just need to buckle down and finish these last few up.
  • Write more letters. I wrote a couple already this week, but I’ve gotten some new pen pals from tumblr + twitter, so I’d really like to get letters sent out to them soon. I also want to get some fun new envelopes, because even though I like making my own, it gets a little tiresome sometimes.
  • Catch up on “Supernatural.” This is a silly and somewhat unproductive one, but it feels like we’ve been watching forever at this point, and it’d be nice to get to the end! Not that I’m not enjoying it. I’m just not a patient person sometimes (oftentimes).

“It’s Friday; I’m in Love” is a weekly gratitude post. It aims to remind myself and others of the good things from the past week, big and small; to share ways to make the next week a positive one; and to serve as a record to look back on for the not-so-great days to come. The title comes from the song by The Cure.

  1. We’re getting caught up on Supernatural too, but we don’t have cable so I either buy it on the Apple TV or just wait for it to come on Netflix. Your grass is so green! Lol random.

    I am so ready for fall! And I hope I win Kristin’s giveaway too!

    • We’ve been watching it on Netflix. I’m not sure what we’ll do when we get to season eight since that isn’t on there yet.

      It is really green! I don’t know why; it’s just a very nice, well-kept lawn. It does get mowed fairly regularly.

    • We don’t go to Starbucks often, so now my goal is to learn to make it at home. I’ve already got my caramel iced lattes down. And I totally recommend Supernatural! It can be serious/dramatic, but it’s also great for a laugh.

      • There’s a Starbucks in my local ginza, but I haven’t gone in the last few months because it’s way too hot for me to walk around outside for that long. You need to teach me how to make a caramel iced latte!!

  2. I’ve been wanting to do the same thing with my Tarot cards! May I ask what Tarot deck you have?

    I’ve been lovin’ the Super Best Friendcast podcast. So good! (Jen and I love Two Best Friends Play.) May I ask what Tarot deck you have?

    • I have three decks: the Rider-Waite, which I think was my first; Tarot of a Moon Garden, which I got in England + think might be my favorite; and The Nigel Jackson Tarot, which has absolutely beautiful art, but the cards are a little big for my hands. I got the last one second, actually, and it was a birthday present from my uncle years ago. It’s funny because the Moon Garden deck is my favorite, but the Rider-Waite is oldest, so it feels nicer in my hands, softer and less new.

  3. First of all: you’re too cute! Second: Supernatural sucks you in like that in the best way ever xD Seriously, wait until you get to The French Mistake. It’s hilarious. Thirdly: Your tarot project sounds super cool!
