It’s been a while since the last time we had a quiet, uneventful Friday around our house.
Our usual dinner and a movie night guests were all busy with other plans tonight; so Mom and I were on our own taking care of Ethan and Ehlana from the time Rowen left for home until Dad got back from Crystal Springs. We took the night off from work and lessons, so after cleaning up from a quick and easy dinner; we mostly played with Ethan and Ehlana in the living room for a couple of hours.
None of us were in any hurry to go to bed after Dad joined us, and it was nearly two hours later before the twins were tucked into their cribs; I sent Mom and Dad to bed; and I came upstairs to my room for a little Jacuzzi action. Maybe having quiet evenings at home isn’t good for me. I was still wide-awake after my bath, and ended up reading in the archives for an hour and a half while snuggling with Mandy.
My studies tonight included some fairly technical explanations about using Magi power for repairing things, and it’s interesting to see how these discoveries often coincided with acute necessities that so many Magi throughout history have faced. When looked at in the context of our entire history, there haven’t really been all that many Magi who have been able to live their lives without needing to struggle just to survive daily life. That has me wondering about how much of what we – the Magi – know would have never been learned without those struggles and crises. I guess the flip side to that is what might have been able to accomplish if we hadn’t needed to work so hard just to survive. Maybe we’ll get to find out the answer to that question here in Witch Falls. Depending on when you’re reading this; you may even know the answer! That’s a bit of a thought-twister.
Anyway, I’m going to leave this journal entry with that; and get some rest, so...
...live from Witch Falls; this is Cassie Proctor, signing off!(I liked the closing line last night, so I’m going to keep it; at least for a while)
