Life update- New Job, Desk space, Books, Etsy Update, Cat

I thought I would share what has been going on in my life. Lots of new things have happen in the last few weeks, I started a new job, got a new desk, bought some new book, Etsy update next week and also have a cat now.

As I write this on my new desk we just bought the other day from my the new job I started. I have been talking how i want a desk for the bedroom. We could not pass it up since it was $49 with 15% off clearance, plus with my 10% discount and in store card we ended up with 30% off in total. Well worth the money. It fits perfect in front of our bedroom window. I love that I can also work on my art or write in the bedroom and listen or watch tv while I work instead of taking over the kitchen table, and my husband can do and watch whatever in the living. The sun was not helping today when I took this picture.

So in august I quite working at the clothing store at the mall and started a new job closer to home and that pays more. I loved working with people at the mall but it just didn’t pay as much. At this new job, I’m basically doing the same thing as I did before, fixing and cleaning up area. I enjoy it a lot, I’m just not a big fan of working the fitting rooms.

I recently went on a book splurge. I have Kindle Unlimited, which I love. So the other day I ended up getting on Kindle Witch by Lisa Lister, Llewelyn’s The 2018 Herbal Almanic, Llewellyn’s 2018 Sabbats Almanac and Llewellyn’s 2018 Witches’ Companion. On paperback I got  1001 spells by Cassandra Eason,  Llewelyn’s 2018 Magical Almanac and Llewellyn’s 2018 Witches’ Datebook.  I super excited to get the date book in the mail. I plan on using it for tracking my tarot reading, dreams and such. IMG_2067.jpg

I also have been working on my Etsy. I have a bunch of Fall/Halloween art work in the works that I will be adding next week on 9/21. I have also started an art series that I just love! I might even have two!

My husband and I are now cat parents to a beautiful brown male tabby cat who is about 6 months to a year old . We have decided to named him Floki. At first we were calling him Lynx but Floki fits him.  He stumbled upon our apartment building and was hanging around for a while. One of the neighbors who has a small dog was feeding him, hoping someone would claim him. Sadly no one did, but someone did try to shut him outside and trap him on the second story awning above the door for the apartment. We rescued him and he followed us to our apartment and he is now ours. I have looked online and asked around  if anyone is missing a cat but no one has claimed him. He is extremely loving, huge cuddle bug and very playful. Also very mischievous but good. Floki likes to take socks and walk around with them and leave them where ever, he also likes to hump any bunched up blankets on the bed. He only does this on the bed, we made a appointment for neutering on October 6.
