The Normal View

      No Comments on The Normal View

Yeah, the desk is pretty much a clutterfest all the way around, ha ha. It’s hard for me to care about it right now with this persistent headache, but at least said headache has been a bit better today? I’m still having to throw pain meds at it, but not as many. I think that there is a good chance… Read more »

Random Scene From a Desk

Which is to say, I had zero inspiration for pictures, and took a picture of crap piled up on my desk again. *jazz hands* The only other inspiration I had was to pay homage to the air conditioner again, which is currently running and keeping things reasonable down here. While it’s not as bad as it was during Summer v1.0,… Read more »

This is My Tired Face

      2 Comments on This is My Tired Face

Though if I’m honest, tired is understating the mark. I hurt, and I am exhausted. Still, I’m trying really hard to step up and let Z rest up and heal as much as possible, and that includes tackling some hard jobs like trying to, le gasp, keep on top of the laundry (which is something we’re never on top of,… Read more »

I cast off the first sock of the current pair this morning — yay! I’m a couple of rows into the next one, so yanno, hooray for getting a start at least. I didn’t expect to get much done today because gaming. Maybe I’ll pick up and do a bit more once we have the girls tucked up… we’ll see…. Read more »

I Disagree, Pavement

      No Comments on I Disagree, Pavement

Really, since when is any stretch of asphalt a ‘great competitor’? Hrmph! I know, I know, it came from the Sports Day stickers that the village children went home festooned with. I spotted it on the way back from the village shop; I’d needed to pop in to get some washing up liquid. Smallhausen started telling me how it had… Read more »

So That Happened

      No Comments on So That Happened

First things first — Z’s minor operation went well. I’m doing my best to dote and cover chores so he can rest up over the weekend… which should hopefully go a bit more smoothly because he made the point to get things fairly caught up before we headed out for the ‘party’. I need to try to remember to get… Read more »

How Does Your Garden Grow?

      No Comments on How Does Your Garden Grow?

While this colourway is called ‘Sugar Cookie’, it’s seriously like a rose to me. I love roses to some ridiculous degree, so this suits me. Like, I love roses to the point that I insisted (if possible) that I bring the roses my mother-in-law got me for my first Christmas in the UK here to the new house when we… Read more »

Serpentine

Whelp, I got past the initial ribbing, and then flubbed up the two rows after that. I picked it back, got my head into the game, and am now making good progress into the pattern. The tl;dr is ‘didn’t follow instructions properly’, but at least I figured it out before I got too far. The heat continues to be murderous,… Read more »

HAIL!

      No Comments on HAIL!

Yes, hail, hail to the air conditioner retrieved from the garage. With the temperatures pushing 90 around here, the fans and lack of breeze weren’t cutting it. And we all needed the relief after a not great night last night. For me, my dumbass forgot to take my meds at the right time, so too hot to sleep + not… Read more »

Pinkie Dink

I just finished off the little set of toy mice — hooray! The only downside is that I ran out of gray when doing the baby pinkie mouse, so I had to improvise. One ear is pink and black, the arms are black, and the legs and tail are the pink to match the parental mice. I also had to… Read more »
