I didn’t really have any photographic inspiration today, so you get a silly face. Dord! Today has been a day of frustrating science for my beloved. After we bought Littler a copy of Minecraft, I received a message from a dear kitten offering me a code for another copy. As we were in the market for a fourth copy, we happily… Read more »

Spot the Difference

I’ve happily been chipping away at the first sleeve, happy with the progress. I thought something looked different in the seed stitch, but I shrugged it off. And then, after 12 rows of it, I realised that I was doing double instead of single. Oh well. I’ve also decided that I cannot be bothered to do it right, so as… Read more »

False Starts

It has, technically, snowed half a dozen times today. It’s just that said time adds up to less than half an hour, and with very little in the way of appreciable sticking to things. The biggest accumulation we have on our property is where a plastic tray was left out in the back garden; that is mainly filled with snow… Read more »

The Best View

It’s the weekend, so we’re doing what we do best — sitting on our butts playing video games. Smalls and Littler got their Diablo on with Z earlier, and then played a few games with him on his VR headset. It’s pretty cool, the headset; it’s set up so that people not wearing the VR helmet can play as well. I’m… Read more »

Nice While It Lasted

When I came down this morning, Z mentioned there had been two or three flakes of snow, but nothing interesting. I shrugged — the weather had randomly forecast heavy snow yesterday that hadn’t shown up, so I didn’t expect anything today. So I was well surprised when it started snow. I was surprised when it started to stick. It probably… Read more »

Unexpected Repeat

I woke up this morning to find a bit of snow had fallen. It wasn’t much… really, it was just enough to turn the entire village into a skating rink. It suffices to say that I was very happy that I didn’t have to go out into it, and Z was happy that he didn’t have to walk both kids… Read more »

When Weather Happens

Finally, the snow thing occurred. We woke up with a nice accumulation, and it was a fairly steady fall for most of the morning. We managed to get outside twice as a group for a bit of a play, so that was excellent. I’m probably going to pay for it, but. Even feeling like crap and not wanting to move,… Read more »

Late Night Questing

Last night after knitting, E and I had to detour to the supermarket on the way home. We had run out of bread, so it’s like hi, I will pick one up, jazz hands, etc. We had a nice little wander, and I managed to avoid most impulse purchasing. I did pick up some cookies, but alas, they turned out… Read more »

Ticking Along

Today came with a wintry near surprise — there was like, two flakes of snow. I tried to get a picture, but it was too dark for my phone to catch anything. It’s supposed to precipitate more overnight, but whether it’s snow or whether it’s rain… well, that’s up to the weather deities to sort out. 🙂 Today’s picture comes… Read more »

It Finally Happened

Yes dears, we finally got a bit of snow. It even stuck for a little bit before the sun came out and blasted it away. It was pure bliss to watch — there were some huge fluffy flakes being blown all around swirly, which makes for great entertainment. I’m glad I got to see it at least once this winter;… Read more »
