Thursday flowers a la @Cinfhen 💕

Much needed this week. My step sister is in hospice and going through her last days. We weren‘t super close but I‘ve been visiting her a lot and cooking for her over the past three months. It was a gift to have that time in retrospect. She‘s in a coma now so I think she‘s out of pain - we‘re all in this waiting space. 🌸🌼🌻🌷🌹

wanderinglynn Beautiful flowers! My thoughts with your family. 💚 2mo

A day late, a dollar short... but doing this fun prompt after being tagged by both @griplitgrl and @Jee_HookedOnBookz ❤❤
1) Even though it sucks to have hours cut at work, it means more time at home w/ LO to watch her grow. She has SO much personality ?
2) Starting an online shop at some point. I've already made some stuff I'm super stoked about.
3) "Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, if one remembers to turn on the light."

BookNerd9906 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I just read somewhere (probably on Litsy) that if you devote 1 hour a day to taking time for yourself 1/24 of ever day is only 5% of your lifetime.

3. I've had a 3 song rotation in my head all day. Start Wearing Purple by Gogol Bordello, The Night Begins To Shine by B.E.R., and Highway Tune by Greta Van Fleet.

1) Well I'm trying to do the Stephen King group read, but I will probably eventually fall behind...it's until 2023. 😂
2) When I was younger I really wanted to be named Rachel, but now I would love a name like Serafina, Persephone, or some completely made up name.
3) depends on genre and decade lol, but lately I've been digging This is Me from The Greatest Showman soundtrack.

3. Sleep, I live in Mountain Time, take my son to an event and have coffee with my daughter while we wait on him

3. Sleep and work. It will only affect me on my ride to work, which is usually when I get on while my husband drives. Let's hope the down time doesn't go over the predicted time!

Thanks for the tag @Sarah83 !

1. Last year I started using Goodreads again, just so I can easily keep track of my total for the year. I also write everything down in two other places. I may be a little obsessive.
2. 1st person, but I'll read any of them.
3. Sleep, drink coffee, make sure my kids do their schoolwork.
