Thirteen

      No Comments on Thirteen

Season 13 of┬áDiablo III started yesterday. So of course, most of my time since then has been dedicated to an initial play-through of the game before I can move on to the more fun aftercore sort of things. I’m most of the way through Act V, and am currently in the Pandemonium Fortress (as pictured). So I should easily be… Read more »

Fun With Hair

      No Comments on Fun With Hair

I like having long hair. For one, I find it easier to care for — it’s brush and go, really. For two, it’s fun to play with. When I don’t have anything else to hand, it’s a good fidget cube analogue, and always has been for me. Plus, having lots of hair gives you chances to do fun things with… Read more »

Eeeee!

Z and the girls got home right as I was starting to fend off a nasty headache. Then Z asked the magic question — would I like a coffee? Well yes, caffeine helps, and I hoped it would make a dent in the gross factor of throbbing headosity. To my delight, he handed me coffee in a new unicorn mug,… Read more »

While it still has a ways to go before it’s fully complete, I finished the body of Z’s jumper today. I didn’t expect to be knitting this afternoon, but E dropped in to hang out for a few hours. He confirms that the fit is where he wanted it, so hooray. We also conferred on what colour to do the… Read more »

Grudging

Yes, this face is a grumpy face, sort of. I took a bath, grudgingly, and came out of it feeling really sick and headache-y. Like, overheated? I know I like a hot bath, but I am hella confused by the feeling overheated thing. I chucked some caffeine and paracetamol at it, and am currently trying to make sure I’ve got… Read more »

Necking

I was very happy last night, as I met my desired knitting goal — I finished the half of the front I was working on. I also sat down and got the second half mathed out, so I’ve managed a few rows of that today. I don’t know what my knitting end goal for today is at this point, but… Read more »

Much Better

      No Comments on Much Better

Today, I did the chore I wanted to get done the most — I got under the dining table cleared out, and was able to return the chair to the dining room. I took the (very) modest momentum I managed to build up to get rubbish picked up, and the vacuumed whizzed around my rug. There is always more that… Read more »

Vee

I figured I was overdue in showing a progress picture, so here you go. I’m only a few rows to go before I’m done doing the decreases on this side of the neck/shoulder, and then it’s just straight pattern until I hit the right number of rows completed (275; I’m currently about to start row 237). It should be pretty… Read more »

Do Not Open ‘Til Christmas

      No Comments on Do Not Open ‘Til Christmas

Well, okay, I guess I have to peel myself out of my blanket sooner than that, but I don’t wanna. The week is over, the workday is over, and I just want to veg. I did thank the girls for a mainly good week; I’m really proud of both of them for independently spearheading crafting projects. Even if it was… Read more »

Table for Four

      No Comments on Table for Four

Today is Z’s birthday. We opted to do a family lunch, which was the first time we’d done one since we were on vacation a few years back. The food was excellent, the girls well behaved, and we’re in agreement that we should all do it again in the near future. We had fun quizzing Littler on shapes and counting,… Read more »
