Introduction 

Welp, new time!

πŸ‘‹ I'm Solcte, otherwise Sol or Spirit. I'm just a country bumpkin trying to be a grown-up in this crazy world. Sometimes.

🌿 Things I like to talk about will include outdoor wanderings, books, attempts at sewing creations and talking about my sonas/OC's.

Always happy to meet new folks, message me anytime! I'm friendly. πŸ™‚

My watch: even a minute of breathing can help you focus.
Me: not now! I’m trying to focus ok.

Oh hey! Before I forget, my books are on a reverse sale today.

If you want to support an indie author and fancy some fun spooky-sweet fantasy about necromancers and secret libraries, you might consider buying them.

tattoo 

Sometimes wearing my wedding band feels really... cumbersome? I'm not used to wearing jewelry. I don't like wearing watches even. Contemplating getting a tattoo on my finger instead when things are safer.

Also maybe the world of warcraft druid symbol on my left shoulder too.

Suggestion: Donate to some indigenous charities today, and encourage others to do the same.

Thinking about how I could potentially display my bookmarks πŸ€”

I've always enjoyed collecting bookmarks, but then they end up piled up in a drawer somewhere and I never see them again. Seems like such a waste.

Thanksgiving PSA 

If you haven't started thawing the bird already, then one trick that'll work is to move that turkey to the deep freezer and check Doordash for who's still catering because that bird isn't happening by tomorrow.

Drawing, memories, water 

Now I just need to learn how to draw water! Especially waves. I have these awesome scenes in my head and I want to get it out on paper before the memories disappear. :blobcatghostreach:

Drawing, memories, MH(-), PTSD? 

That last time we lost the bridge was very traumatic. The bridge only lasted 1-2 weeks.

We had a major flooding event related to one of the autumn hurricanes coming up the coast. Over 4 inches of rain in a short span of time; the storm stalled. All the years I lived there, I never saw anything like it. Waves were as high as the house. We saved a small footbridge, but it was dangerous.

These memories keep haunting me and I've felt spurred to draw it..

Drawing, memories 

Working on drawing some landscape and scenes from memory and just - wow. I haven't sketched in a long time.

Specifically, I'm trying to illustrate points and scenes of the land I grew up on. I lived with a river cutting through our property the majority of my life and I watched the landscape change drastically over the years.

Twice, we had to rebuild the bridge because it was swept away by immense floods. The third time we lost the bridge, we stopped rebuilding..

PH(+), Covid 

Woo, my Covid test came back negative! I still don't feel 100% better today, but good to know it's not Covid.

Just the thought that my husband and I might have it is terrifying enough. :ablobgrimace:

PH (-), covid? 

Oi, woke up this morning with a dry cough, headache, and mild fever. Now I'm paranoid it's the Corona. :blobcatfearful:

Thing is that my husband woke up with similar symptoms, so it's extra suspicious for something we were exposed to.

Food, fursuit 

By the way, this was a celebration just between my husband, @SentinelArk and I. :blobcatmmm:
