Sure, Why Not

      No Comments on Sure, Why Not

If there is one thing I cannot help but admire in small children, it’s how they can fall asleep in all sorts of goofy situations. I realise that this isn’t that odd a set-up, but it was cute. I mean, doesn’t everyone sleep with one wellie on, tablet in lap, a light saber, and used lunch dishes? Really, it’s the… Read more »

Bits and Bobs

      No Comments on Bits and Bobs

The unicorn pieces are slowly nearing completion. I’ve hit my usual ‘problem’ of doing toys — I get bored doing lots of tiny bits. I’d rather do big bits and join the big bits together, yanno? But it’s fine, it’s fine. I will get it done ’cause it’s a unicorn, and I will love it and gently squish it, and… Read more »

Entropy and Homeostasis

      No Comments on Entropy and Homeostasis

My desk is a constant battleground between entropy and its love of disorder, and homeostasis and its attempt to balance itself. I managed to strike back again a little bit this afternoon, so I get to show it off, hee hee. It’s been a sluggish sort of day, which is fine. We got home in record time last night, and… Read more »

Time, She Flies!

So like, it’s been fun here at R and C’s house, but it’s already almost time to go. Whut. At least it looks like, knock on wood, we’re going to get a sunnier trip back than we did to here. And I leave with some goodies too, hee hee. R picked up the Pokestop sticker for me, and some Twizzlers,… Read more »

And Finally, The Sky…

      No Comments on And Finally, The Sky…

Today, the rains finally came. Well, it rained a bit yesterday, but today seems to have been the day for the rain to come in a way that caused peoples’ headaches to eff off. I still feel fairly awful, but my head pain has been mainly manageable. It probably helped that I went to bed stupid early last night. Like,… Read more »

It Burrrrrns

      4 Comments on It Burrrrrns

I don’t know if it’s the pollen or the air pressure or both, but I have a brutal sinus headache. It’s not a congested thing, but rather, more of a ‘everything in my head is in pain and on fire’ sort of thing, to include my eyes.  It’s not pleasant. R thinks it might get better if/when the thunderstorm we’re… 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 »

At Least They Don’t Know the Song

      No Comments on At Least They Don’t Know the Song

Which is to say, the torture that is Raffi’s Bananaphone is *not* a thing over here. Ironically, it wasn’t a thing in my life until I was an adult involved with Radio KoL; my parents never inflicted children’s ‘music’ on us that I can recall. Instead, we had good and probably inappropriate stuff like The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The… Read more »

Too Many Pictures in the Year

      No Comments on Too Many Pictures in the Year

My mother-in-law’s birthday is in a few days, and her one request was that I whip up a new filler for the picture frame we got her last year. The filler currently in it was pictures of the girls from the previous year, so what I’m doing is the same again. As I’ve taken *thousands* of photos in the past… 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 »
