Surprise update: the season was not actually over. The plants have their own plans.
One of my most treasured things is getting drawings (and zines) from kids.
This gem was drawn by one of my kickass students who I have only seen in zoom windows since last March 💔. They explained that they made my chest smaller because they thought I’d like it. And then I said oh! My chest is flat now, I’ve had top surgery. And they said “cool. I think I really got your hair though!”

My kids love holiday decorations. Me? Throw up some twinkle lights and maybe never bother to take them back down. Knowing it'd be a long holiday season with lots of home time, we finally got the artificial tree of their dreams. And they set it up the day it arrived, while we waited for election results to be counted. I'm happy with the fall concept tree that will soon give way to ornaments but no, the tree won't stay up like twinkle lights (I hope).
Libraries are magical, always.
