Yes, it’s a lost shoe on a pole — surprise! *laughs* It’s the sort of random sight that amuses and delights me, because yanno… random. All about the random. I am tired. I’ve left the house a few times already, because yanno, I don’t want to spend the entire trip cooped up. We stopped by the wool shop, which turns… Read more »

Me Too, Friendo

After a less than auspicious start vis-à-vis a severe leg cramp in the night, it’s been alright. Z took the girls out after breakfast for a wander, then came back for lunch. We then set out for the aquarium, which pleasantly killed a few hours. Pictured here was a napping octopus hiding in a bit of fake coral. I especially… Read more »

Packing, Shuffling

Things are progressing towards completion for our heading out tomorrow. We’ve gotten just about the rest of the laundry caught up, mine and Littler’s case is packed, and Smalls and Z will complete their case shortly; theirs is being delayed by a shirt Smalls wanted to take that is in the dryer. I’ve still got a few bits and bobs… Read more »

In Progress

Today has definitely been a good day to start our two weeks off. Z took the girls for a spot of shopping this morning, and picked up some sandwiches on the way back. I’ve had a long hot bath, and been working on my earring listings. I think I’ve almost got my head around how to photograph against black, and… Read more »

A Little for Me

It seems that on my brain’s holiday to-do list is to make sure I have plenty of stitch markers. I even ordered a pretty tin to put them in, because yanno, I apparently had a need. The ones pictured here are small, as in, will do 4mm needles and under. Which if I’m honest, covers most of my knitting needs,… Read more »

I semi-recently added the Sell on Esty app on my phone to make it easier to get my photographs into draft listings. I went a step further and set up some custom notifications, because hey, it’s super easy to do these days. What cracks me up is that the notification I set for people liking items confuses the hell out… Read more »

Not Really *laughs*

Today’s picture is the ultimate ‘crap, take a picture’ picture. I’m not particularly excited or concerned or anything — the picture, much like the pie, is a lie. *giggles* Having said that, I’m starting to feel the first stirrings of excitement for our forthcoming holiday. I’d ordered a new swimdress, and it’s cute. I even put a picture of me… Read more »

Quality Improv

I was talking to Z this morning, trying to brainstorm ideas for how to improve my lightbox. Namely, a way to support the cloth I’m using as backing at the top of the box. He suggested using a kitchen skewer supported on a tower of Duplo, which seemed like a reasonable idea (seeing how I don’t want to break the… Read more »

Blow Harder

      No Comments on Blow Harder

Today has been that borderline of warm and humid that had made the concept of moving even more insulting. It’s supposed to be a smidge warmer tomorrow and then cooler again after, so we’ll see. I could have turned the a/c on if I really wanted to, but I don’t know, trying to ‘tough’ it out or something. At least… Read more »
