False Starts

It has, technically, snowed half a dozen times today. It’s just that said time adds up to less than half an hour, and with very little in the way of appreciable sticking to things. The biggest accumulation we have on our property is where a plastic tray was left out in the back garden; that is mainly filled with snow… Read more »

The Best View

It’s the weekend, so we’re doing what we do best — sitting on our butts playing video games. Smalls and Littler got their┬áDiablo on with Z earlier, and then played a few games with him on his VR headset. It’s pretty cool, the headset; it’s set up so that people not wearing the VR helmet can play as well. I’m… Read more »

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

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 »

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 »

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 »

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

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 »

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 »
