Outside Exists

      No Comments on Outside Exists

On today, the hottest day of the year so far — I left the house not once, but twice. I had an order come in last night on my way home from the pub, and then another one pretty much as soon as I had sat down and finished a sandwich after the first trip. Which was fine! I needed… Read more »

Pbbbbffft

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 »

Shoe Tree

      No Comments on Shoe Tree

Well okay, it’s not a tree, but it’s a shoe rack, and it’s made out of wood. I had suggested to Z that we get one to replace the one we had been using, since it wasn’t suitable for small people shoes. I had inspiration for its placement while Z was putting it together. We had originally planned to put… Read more »

Chipping Away

      No Comments on Chipping Away

Since we were all stuck at home today due to weather, we mainly took it easy. But Z also spearheaded getting a tidying task that we wanted done started. We’re not completely done processing the junk into less junk, but we’ve managed to throw quite a few old toys away, in addition to rubbish that had hidden itself amongst other… Read more »

Drifting

While the snow isn’t accumulating too deeply on the ground due to wind, it’s building up quite nicely in our trampoline. Z reckons it’s about 8 inches, and I guess there’s more to potentially come? We’ll see. All I know is that the girls were wise to call of knitting tonight, as the roads are ghastly out there. I intend… Read more »

Dressed for Success

      No Comments on Dressed for Success

If there is one thing I like about winter, it’s being cold enough that I can wear a dress. Most of the year, I’m flipping layers on and off a dozen times a day because the ambient temperature is never quite right. Right now, it’s chilly enough that I can have the layer on, and maybe even another one. I… Read more »

Snow Dump

      No Comments on Snow Dump

Well, weather happened. The forecasts suggest that it’s going to keep happening for the next couple of days. Unlike yesterday, it fell for a good spell and dumped at least an inch, maybe more. I didn’t get out to measure it this time, so. I’m just happy that I was able to watch it though! Hopefully I’ll get more of… Read more »

False Starts

      No Comments on 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

      2 Comments on 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 »
