Happy Friday, book friends! We started the week with no power, but thankfully it was restored on Monday night, so the rest of the week has been relatively normal. We spent the workday at my in-laws’ house, and Azula had a lot of fun stealing every toy that Uncle Dewey has. He was less enthused.

Azula got plenty of walks in the subdivision behind our house, and she’s even getting comfortable enough with her new surroundings that she doesn’t constantly look ongingly back towards home. She’s been pretty energetic the last few days, I think grateful that the house is warm and bright again.

I took a bit of time off reading on Tuesday to enjoy having power and internet, but I kept right on with my morning reading routine and am slowly making my way through Witches of America. This morning I learned I am possibly related to the founder of a tradition the author is researching, since he is descended from the Blue Fugates, as am I. So that was interesting to discover.

This weekend, we’ll be doing some cleaning around the house as we’re having friends over to play board games on Sunday. Andy got a new board game as a housewarming gift, and he’s very excited to be able to play it (it requires 3-4 people and we’ve yet to teach Azula to play board games with us).

My birthday is a week from today, and it feels like it’s coming especially quicky this year. My mom is coming to visit for a few days to celebrate and see our new house, so that will be a fun time. I’ve got one more week to make jokes about being 30, flirty, and thriving before I turn over to 31.

That’s pretty much it in terms of updates from Azula and I for this week! Hope you’ve had a good week and that you’ve got fun weekend plans ahead.

Happy first Friday of March, book friends! Azula and I are settling nicely into a routine here in the cabin, with our new morning walking route and plenty of ball fetchies right in our own backyard.

I’ve been reading most mornings and evenings, snuggled up on the couch with Azula. She’s curled up next to me as I write this, on the new blanket I bought to celebrate being in our new home. It’s a sun and moon blanket from HausWitch that I’ve been obsessed with for years, ever since I visited the shop when in Salem. I figured if I’ve been thinking about it this long, I may as well actually bring it into our home.

Not too much of note has happened this week, more just same old same old. I’m getting back into a regular morning yoga routine after dropping off during the move. The ceiling is a bit low in my office, but it’s still the best and coziest place to practice in the new house. Azula finally figured out that’s what I was up to and joined me yesterday, sitting on the mat and looking out her favorite window while I did yoga. I say I get the extra long mats because I’m tall, but it’s also partly to make space for pets, if I’m honest. My cat, Artemis, used to love laying on the top of my mat while I did yoga, and Azula seems to enjoy sitting up there as well.

The weather has been a bit warmer and windier, with plenty of springish vibes as we make our way to the season. The birds are chirping and flitting between the trees, and Azula is fascinated by so much wildlife right outside her windows. She does a tour of the house every morning, looking out all the windows she can reach to see what’s going on.
