Workaday

      No Comments on Workaday

One of the other sights on the walk home was this snapped image. There is a house on the main road that has been redoing their garage and front ‘garden’, and something about it was like, whelp, stop I’m recording this. I noticed as I paused there was another workman in the garage having a cuppa, and I shot him… Read more »

Sweet Treats

Today is that ever so glorious day where it’s okay to take candy from strangers — Halloween! This is the first time that both of the girls are out making the rounds, and I hope that the three of them (’cause yanno, Z with them) have a good time. Smalls was also excited because this year she gets to make… Read more »

Not Spaghetti Squash

      No Comments on Not Spaghetti Squash

Today, I had the dubious pleasure of coring four pumpkins for tomorrow. I don’t know what the frack happened, but two of them decided they were spaghetti squash and I had like, ALL THE STRANDS. My working theory of the moment is that it had to do with the tool I used on the two over the spoon I used… Read more »

Currency, Innit

      No Comments on Currency, Innit

Freddos are a dinky little chocolate treat, the price of which comes up often as a way of bemoaning inflation. Z picked up a couple because I’d never had one, so yanno… eating money or something. It was pretty blah ’cause Kraft ruined Cadsbury everything, but at least I can tick it off my list of things that are a… Read more »

Little Gamers

Today, the children exemplified that they are indeed our children; they spent the entire day playing video games with each other. Perhaps I should have encouraged them to do other things but meh. They were happy and having fun with each other, thereby enabling me to work. Considering that I’m well behind myself, having a couple of solid, uninterrupted hours… Read more »

My pretties arrived today! My two sets (and bat’s one set) arrived in good order this morning — with one of Z’s Amazon orders. The boxes have been sitting next to me taunting me all day. I’ve had silly things to worry about like, oh, work, and keeping the kids alive, ha ha. I know, not actually silly, but just… Read more »

Saving the Day

The last bit for Littler’s Halloween costume came in today, so we let her put the bits on and flail around for the camera. I took a stupid number of pictures, but this one did the best of catching the essence of the ‘shoot’. We need to get Smalls to check the fit of her costume as well, but I’m… Read more »

Fun Marble Drink!

D brought me some ramune soda when she came up for the party, which is yay. I’d not had any since moving here, so it’s a nice treat. And she brought a small variety of flavours to try, so I’m having melon. It’s not too bad, and Littler would have necked it if I’d let her have more than a… Read more »

All In

Well, I can report that this party seems to be going well. Only one person had to leave early for naps, but I’m glad that we had her for as long as we did. bat has stayed upright by the magical power of Adderall, for which I am grateful. I mean, if they had needed a nap, I would not… Read more »

A Day

      No Comments on A Day

That’s really all it’s been. I’ve been here, and more or less existing. I’ve done some knitting, I’ve been poking at puzzles on Flight Rising… that’s seriously about it. Well, and I cut up some jalapenos too, so that’s something. Even though I washed my hands, the burnination is imbedded in my fingers; I’m not sure I want to pick… Read more »
