Laundry Inspector

      No Comments on Laundry Inspector

Any time I’ve got the clean laundry spread across the bed, Batman thinks that it is his solemn duty to bury himself in my share of it. I get it, he’s my jealous boyfriend, and he’s got to get his smell all over my things. I annoyed him by trapping him in and smooching his face — after annoying him… Read more »

Hair Today

      No Comments on Hair Today

When I got up this morning and was brushing my hair, I liked the way it was catching the light. I tried to take a clever mirror shot, but this at arm’s length ended up working a lot better. I really need to recolour it sooner rather than later, but it takes a lot of spoons to get that done…. Read more »

Sunlight Dreamer

Today’s picture comes compliments of actually going outdoors, ha ha. The kids were over visiting their grandparents, so Z and I took the tape measure outside to get a loose idea of what we’re working with in regards to the near future refurbishments. Our base plan involves taking down a dangerous old wall and replacing it with a fence, but… Read more »

Z and I do the vast majority of our grocery shopping online for delivery. We tend to start in the discount section, which means that we get some things we’d probably not get otherwise. One of mine this most recent shop was cinnamon rolls, which nobody regrets. We all had one as a post-dinner treat and were well received. It… Read more »

Week Two

      No Comments on Week Two

I realised this morning that it’s the second week of summer break. With everyone home last week, I’d sort of forgotten we were on summer break somehow. Not that it mattered much — Z went to work, and the girls and I hung out here doing our own things. It mainly went well, and I even got the girls to… Read more »

Downstairs Exile

The weather was hot again today, and is supposed to be hot again tomorrow. And tonight. So last night, we all slept downstairs under the auspices of two ceiling fans and the air conditioner, and it looks like we’ll be doing it again. Z and I are discussing the logistics of it, as we can’t do what we did last… Read more »

I don’t know if I can call it rain per se, but some amount of water has forced itself out of the sky, grudgingly. The weather still claims that we’ll see some rain today, but. *shrugs* I am not complaining. It’s been cooler, I’m comfortable, and able to wear an extra layer. Heck, I even was able to sleep under… Read more »

Yeah, No Idea

I was a bit at a loss as to what to do for my picture today, so I just sort of waggled my phone camera around until something looked vaguely interesting/arty. I’m not really sure my arm looking all weird and elongated (with no editing!) *really* fills that remit, but never mind. At this point, it’s more about the challenge… Read more »

Brilliant Times

Hahah, it’s late, so late. But it was a really good night out. It was a small group, only five of us, but it was a candid and friendly environment with lots of good chatter and crafting and the usual silliness. I had some rather edifying conversations that made me feel less alone in the world. I also managed to… Read more »

I keep seeing friends on Facebook posting via magic wossit that they are registered to vote. I presume it’s something that pops up if you use Facebook on your phone (I generally don’t), so here’s my announcement. The timing is apt, as I am currently watching last night’s debate. I spotted that it was on the BBC News, so why… Read more »
