Things I accomplished this past lunar month:

1) I attended a painting class. While I enjoyed the learning experience and painting with other people, I quickly figured out that rushing any type of art that comes from me is not a good idea at all. I had to rush myself a lot on top of trying to learn how to use the paint. I’ve never painted with oils before so that by itself was a learning experience. I just work a whole lot better when I can take my time, when I remember to also be patience.

2) Started my garden. I have cucumbers, ghost peppers, strawberries, mint, and sunflowers so far. So far, none have died.

3) I started writing every day but then I forgot too. I’m trying to again. If I can remember.

4) I have started the process of attending college. I just hope they finish that one college they promised would be built in time for the coming up fall year of school.

I read something about miasma today and now I want to write up a purification ritual. Something more than just ‘take a bubble or salt bath with candles’ and rinse my hands in khernips. I still want to do this once a week but I want a little more involved ritual than that.

My cucumbers are sprouting! I just hope they continue growing. They seem to be in shock. I didn’t realize until it was too late that cucumbers do not like being transplanted at all. But then again, people said that about sunflowers and I completely cradled a sunflower root in my hand before putting in the ground and hoping for the best. And it righted itself! So I will have hope and continue giving those little sprouts encouragement.

So far the books I’ve read this year have been…

A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury. The writing is nothing to be excited for and the characters are a bit bland. Except for Feyre’s oldest (I think?) sister. I like her the most in the books, I think. It did touch me that towards the end of Mist and Fury, Feyre wants to start teaching people to paint in order to help them heal. Something I had wanted to do at one point in time.

I was reading Dialogues of Plato but I ditched it because 1) It’s a library book that needs to be returned sooner or later 2) it was taking me forever to make progress on, Socrates, god damn. I would hate to have his pattern of thinking, that’s all I can say and 3) it’s so fucking dry to read. So I ditched it, said I finished it on goodreads, and I might buy it one day and try and choke down that book. I did find some hidden gems about Greek polytheism in it so it wasn’t nothing gained, exactly. But I can’t stand reading Greek literature. It’s just not straight forward enough for me I guess. I can’t even stand reading the mythos that were written about my gods for that exact reason. I don’t care, I’m not suffering that writing.

On a brighter side. My sunflowers are sprouting and I have a cucumber that’s sprouting. I’m definitely going to wait to plant the cucumber until we get that plot of land situated and I think by that time we won’t have anymore cold nights. At least, that’s what I’m hoping. I’m worried about the sunflowers though. They like to grow fast. I probably should have held off on planting them until… May? They are a summer flower, not a spring flower. I really want my bell pepper and strawberries to sprout. I want to plant two cucumber plants, two bell peppers, and two strawberry plants. I also didn’t realize there are specific cucumber plant varieties for making pickles with. I’m a little bummed out I didn’t realize this and I do not have that variety, I have the slicing variety.
