Furbaby Friday 2/3/2023

Happy Friday, book friends! I’ve wrapped up my second week working from home, and it’s been a relatively productive one. Azula and I are in the habit of taking a lunchtime walk, and the sun has been shining even if it’s also been relatively cold.

I haven’t been doing much reading now that I have my replacement joycon and can play Stardew Valley again, but I am slowly making my way through my morning read and my audiobook. My virtual running club also has a monthlong race going, so I’ve been walking 6.2 miles a day to contribute my maximum daily miles to the team.

Spoiler Alert is a bit spicier than I generally prefer, particularly when it comes to audiobook listens, but I am enjoying it okay. I do feel like it’s one of those books where the central conflict is obviously brewing and I’m just waiting for the moment when it comes.

This weekend will be a relatively quiet one, with plenty of packing and tidying up the house. Our realtor is visiting on Monday to take a look at the house and make recommendations for what needs to happen before we put it on the market.

In Case You Missed It

I thought I’d start adding in little weekly recaps of the other posts on the blog from the previous week, since these Furbaby Friday posts are often pretty short little check-ins. So, ICYMI, here’s what else went up this week:

That’s about all for this week’s furbaby Friday check-in, book friends! I hope you had a good week and have a solid weekend ahead!

Happy Friday, book friends! Today marks one full week of being a stay-at-home dog mom and writer. It’s been an interesting week, with plenty of puppy cuddles and reading time, but also small steps towards building up my freelance writing business. Azula seems to be adjusting to having me home every day, though she does sometimes give me a weird look when I emerge from the home office midday.

Because my writing isn’t squeezed in before work anymore, I’m back in the regular habit of reading a nonfiction book in the morning while I have my coffee. Currently, I’m working on Initiated: Memoir of a Witch. It’s a very strange book so far, but I’m curious to see where it goes.

In addition to working on my writing, I’ve also been making slow progress towards packing up the house. Today, I’ll be tackling my bins in the basement, which will probably be another round of donating a bunch of things to Goodwill.

In all, it’s been a strange and exciting week as I settle into new routines. There’s been a good bit of snow, though not much of it has stuck around for long. Azula has gotten to play in it a bit, and we’ve had some quite snowy walks, which is always a nice reminder of how having a dog changes your life.

This weekend we’ve got a few plans, but I’m hoping I’ll also be able to finish True Biz and round out the month with eight books read!

How was your week?
