Nearly a Desk

      No Comments on Nearly a Desk

Z has continued his efforts in chipping out the study, and we have reached a stage that we have both been looking forward to — actually being able to reach the surface of the desk. I found out earlier that Smalls has explicitly staked a claim to it, which is fair. The television is hooked up to the PS2, and… Read more »

Hail!

      No Comments on Hail!

Amongst the five million other jobs Z did today, he found time to help me build my new chair. I didn’t expect it to take long, but it was over even faster than I expected. Apparently it was designed to be done by one person, so two definitely made for quicker hands. While the distance between my butt and the… Read more »

Out With the Old…

      No Comments on Out With the Old…

Today, we finally got a chore done that should have gotten done a looong time ago — we got rid of the chairs that came with the house that we kept as a joke. Z and I got them taken outside and loaded up, and he took them to the tip. He also took Smalls with him, and they picked… Read more »

Turning It Around

      No Comments on Turning It Around

I have made a good start on getting my desk tidied back up after weeks of being a disaster area. And let me tell you — it is grand to be able to move my arm without obstruction, ha ha. I’ve also combined that with getting some of the things for Saturday boxed up and moved to the side, and… Read more »

Grinding Levels

      No Comments on Grinding Levels

One of my favourite Ctrl+Alt+Del strips of Ye Olden Days was one about Ethan buying  bunch of food with the intention of grinding his cooking skill. That is sort of how I am feeling today, but in earring making. I’ve made over 20 pairs today, and currently plan to continue making more. Z and I talked about it, and we agreed… Read more »

Well Fed

We popped over to visit Z’s parents. It’s his mother’s birthday,  so we were taking cards and pressies. She seemed to like her gifts, which is yay; she’s hard to read sometimes. She then invited us to join her and Z’s father for a meal, which um, yes please. *chuckles* We all had a lovely meal, and the girls were… Read more »

The Flip Side

      No Comments on The Flip Side

I decided I was going to try to focus my efforts on getting the blanket finished. It takes up a lot of space in my crafting area, so getting it done and moved off would be a Good Thing™®. It’s pleasant to look upon and I was starting to get a good pace before we hit dinnertime. Hopefully I can… Read more »

Super Rude

We were sitting here a bit ago, when suddenly the power went. It didn’t go everywhere-everywhere; all the plugs here in the lounge worked, if nothing else. Z dug his way to the fuse box and got things back up, but then realised what the likely culprit was — the oven. The heating unit appears to have gone which is… Read more »

Waiting

      No Comments on Waiting

I am sort of in a not wanting to do the things semi-funk while I wait for the storage drawers to come in. Well. I did the things last night, but I haven’t done anything store-related today. I’m just knitting and gaming, which is fine! It’s the weekend, and I don’t have to grind myself to a nub. Due to… Read more »

Always Shifting

      No Comments on Always Shifting

Today brought another wave of trying to tame my desk environs. Of course, kiddos decided they had to keep getting in my way in spite of me repeatedly asking them to not invade the like, 2 square feet I needed them to stay out of. My anxiety is still a bit elevated from that, which is super annoying. But at… Read more »
