Musing on September, Hailing October (2021)

12:17 AM


Greetings and salutations! 

Well, the leaves are changing already and I'm getting into the hot tea and sweaters. And I am so ready for it!! Apples, pumpkins, all the soup, all the yummy things! 

But I suppose I should give summer one last hoorah before I officially welcome fall...

- I read a review copy of Staying Here by Lena Claire Cook (formally known as Lena Donellan), and OH BOY what a tearjerker! A full review will be on the of these days. 

- While on my trip to Ohio, I took the opportunity to read two books by my blogging circle: United We Fall by Brooke Riley and Sins, Sons and Siren Songs by Sarah Rodecker and Helena George! I loved both of them very much and hopefully, I will review them soon! 

- Lia also gave me a couple of books while I was out there: The Reckoning by Beverly Lewis and the Rats of Nimh! I haven't read the first one, but I'm glad to have the second :). 

- I've been continuing my streaming of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman on Prime (which I think I started last month, if I remember correctly?). I'm almost finished with Season 2! 

- Editing on TWR has been chugging along! Last month, I was hovering around 13k. This month, I finish out with 19k! I'm just now right before the Games begin, but I need to cut out a little more because I'm STILL dealing with a really slow beginning. 

- Been continuing on the classical kick from last month, for better study environment. I've been exploring "happy", "light academia" styles...more on that in a second. 

- I discovered that my "aesthetic" playlists were in fact "mood" playlists. So I've changed them accordingly and have created some new ones - a playlist for Bardcore and one for Light Academia. As time goes on, I may put one for Cottagecore too. 

- I got *something* to make my own music with. I plan to post about this on my other blog, so stay tuned there! 

- I've been exploring more podcasts this month, especially feminine Catholic ones. One of my favorites has been Beloved and Blessed by Kimberly Hahn (wife to Scott Hahn!).  

- For Femininity from Scratch (formally known as Working by Candelight), there have been a lot of changes! A new name, a new header, and a slightly new focus as I start on a journey towards new ventures. Right now, I am still debating on whether to set a new blog or to set a new URL for the upcoming podcast. And in light of all of these changes, there is only one post this month: Femininity from Scratch A New Start

- For The Rebelling Muse, I wrote 2 posts: Tolkien Blog Party 2021, and My Scattered Thoughts on Eowyn and Femininity. I've got a couple of posts upcoming, especially one about my Renn Faire adventures! 

- Edit TWR

I've written 6000 words this month! It's a very worthy accomplishment, and I hope that I will edit at least that amount if not more this next month! 

- Engage with more bloggers

 I participated in Hamlette's Hobbit Blog Party, which was a lot of fun! It was really great interacting with my fellow bloggers again. Maybe once I get out of school, I can get back into blogging more. 

And now, I have talked on long enough! What have you been doing this September? Any new books or movies? I'd love to chat with you all! 

Scribbingly yours,

  1. Ooh, Rats of NIMH was one of my favorites when I was little! :)

    So glad TWR editing is going well!

    Okay, what on earth is the difference between an aesthetic playlist and a mood playlist??
