  • growing a basil plant: a.k.a. constantly staring at said plant, asking if it's okay or needs anything. using the harvests to make home made pesto for super fancy pizzas!
  • camp nanowrimo: scrapping the drafts that emerged, but I finally reached a point where I felt connected to this project. 
  • setting up my office: and then not using it because the dining table is closer to food

So many books read this month! I think it helped that I've embraced having multiple formats of books*. No matter what I'm doing, whether it's waiting in line, commuting, or tucked into bed, I've got a book and a way to read it. 

* Formats breakdown: 
1 short story collection (STARS ABOVE)
