Yesterday was a crazy day, and it ended in our CO2 detector going off like crazy, requiring us to call the local fire department to get the house checked over. Everything was fine, but the firefighter left with a huge thunder and lightning storm on his heels.
This storm broke some of the heat wave cooking our house, but knocked out our internet until morning (I hadn’t checked on it all night, so I imagine it might have been back sooner, but I was too tired to look.)
These past few days I have been working steadily on my bead set, and have gotten stuck a few times in the execution of how I see it in my head, making me rework it over and over. My girls have been cranky due to the heat and needing my attention so much that working on my beads has been difficult. Since cuddles are very important, I have been getting lots of them, and reading a new book whenever I can (and can’t work on my beads).
My husband bought me the Jotunbook by Raven Kaldera for our anniversary, and I have gotten the chance to crack it open a few times. So far my perusal has been limited reading the introduction, but I am in awe of his work. Just the way he refers to the Jotnar thrills me, instead of loathing or malice, he speaks of Them as beloved Gods worthy of worship, which is awesome. I can’t wait to read more.
