Friday Favourites

This week has been a bit of a grind. I've been working on filling orders and getting older ones out of the door, backed up since the wedding, and that's been a bit of a stress, then there's the fact that my next gallery exhibit begins in 2 weeks, so I'm a wee bit tense about that, and I'm trying to get my book cover finished asap so I can finally release the book itself. So it's been busy, to say the least, and strangled by deadlines.
That said, I have had time to breathe, because I've started enforcing working hours. I don't write during the day any more, I do shop work and save writing for the evening when my imagination and concentration is better (ie there are fewer distractions) rather than letting myself procrastinate through the day, get to the evening and have hundreds of things I have to do before I can do the things I want to do, like write.
Speaking of writing, you'll notice that Vaesen is in this week's favourites, too. It was Seeg's wedding gift to me, a book I'd had my eye on for a long time about Scandinavian folk creatures, and the reason it's here again this week, beyond the fact that I love the freaking thing, is that it's been a real help in my writing lately. I've just moved into a very wild area filled with creatures and beings, and the book has been a great source of inspiration for my own creatures.
Last night I also, for some reason, felt the compulsion to watch The Last Naruto Movie - a movie set 2 years after the end of the series. We haven't watched the series in a couple of years but I suddenly felt the need to watch it, and Road to Ninja, the movie that came before. These movies are usually awful, as a rule, but these two are actually great. Road to Ninja is relevant to the series, to a degree, and The Last actually sums everything up and ties it all together quite satisfyingly. It always makes me happy to watch.
Also, some of the best green tea I've ever tried, from Chateau Rouge, had to make it onto this list, too ♥
