Three Things Thursday: Seedlings, Meditating with Plants, and Camp Nano!

It’s hard for me to top yesterday’s big announcement, but I hope this week’s edition of Three Things Thursday also inspires you.

Seedlings:

The seeds I started on March 20th are doing well for the most part. The beans are most vigorous as you can see from above. The tomatoes and squash have sprouted, which is always cause for celebration. The habanero… Well, I still have hope. Two types of basil and parsley are also reaching toward the light. I’ve since started lettuce, leeks, and some other herbs. It’s amazing to see their progress each day, and it helps me feel closer to the goddess Airmed.

Meditating with Plants:

Speaking of plants and gardens, it’s time for a bit of a throwback to when I took part in the“Plant Spirit Ally Challenge” with Hagstone Publishing last May. I wrote about meditating with a specific plant (mugwort) to better know them. Even when you live in a northern climate where plants are just popping out, there are ways to make a connection. Why not start now? Are you going to work with any new herbs this year?

Writing Update: Camp Nanowrimo:

I’ve never been one to rest on my laurels. Sure, I have moments where I laze about, but I’m always working on something. As I wait for the next steps toward River Magic’s publication, I’ve decided to take advantage of Camp Nanowrimo and work on a sequel! Due to yesterday’s excitement, I didn’t make a huge dent in my goals, but every story starts somewhere, right? I’ll document some of my progress on Instagram with another writing challenge. My plans for this story? Another otherworldly being, but more kitchen magic this time!
