Not Really *laughs*

      No Comments on Not Really *laughs*

Today’s picture is the ultimate ‘crap, take a picture’ picture. I’m not particularly excited or concerned or anything — the picture, much like the pie, is a lie. *giggles* Having said that, I’m starting to feel the first stirrings of excitement for our forthcoming holiday. I’d ordered a new swimdress, and it’s cute. I even put a picture of me… Read more »

Quality Improv

I was talking to Z this morning, trying to brainstorm ideas for how to improve my lightbox. Namely, a way to support the cloth I’m using as backing at the top of the box. He suggested using a kitchen skewer supported on a tower of Duplo, which seemed like a reasonable idea (seeing how I don’t want to break the… Read more »

Blow Harder

      No Comments on Blow Harder

Today has been that borderline of warm and humid that had made the concept of moving even more insulting. It’s supposed to be a smidge warmer tomorrow and then cooler again after, so we’ll see. I could have turned the a/c on if I really wanted to, but I don’t know, trying to ‘tough’ it out or something. At least… Read more »

Black Screen of Infinite Waiting

      No Comments on Black Screen of Infinite Waiting

I decided that today was going to be the day I sucked it up and got the latest Windows feature update downloaded onto all of my computers. It went super-fast on Baby because hey, her OS drive is an SSD. My desktop is currently in black screen purgatory, so I’m keeping my main laptop waiting until that sorts itself out…. Read more »

Sunshine, Clawlipops…

      No Comments on Sunshine, Clawlipops…

Yeah okay, this is probably a piss poor effort at a subject line, but it’s late and I hadn’t realised how late it was. *chuckles* This was one of a series of pictures I took of  Batman this morning, ’cause he’s cute. And because Seanan McGuire likes cat pictures, and if I can give something back to my current favourite… Read more »

Taste of Time

I was using my Sonic Spork to transfer some clock charms into a bag for background colour in a picture, and figured — why not take a picture of me eating time. So yanno, here you go — vaguely inspired. *chuckles* I’ve not done super much today, sticking to the plan of ‘moving is overrated’. It’s been a good one,… Read more »

Nearly There

      No Comments on Nearly There

I decided to go ahead and cast off and call my little swatch of crochet done. I think it should be more than big enough for photographic purposes. If not, well… it’s not like it takes *that* long to crochet. I ended up pulling back a few rows and rebuilding because, as you can probably spot, I’d accidentally started decreasing… Read more »

It’s Not Red, But…

… but it IS a Swingline, and it IS mine. I had it out to reinforce the box I keep the stitch markers in, because I split it with card dividers, and I wanted to try and give them a bit more grounding against the box. I don’t know if it really worked, or if it’s because it’s taped within… Read more »

Sure, Sure

We had a bag of FREE WOOL to pick through at knitting last night. I like when this happens, because free wool aside, one can often tell what sort of knitter the person clearing out their stash is. I had no idea in this case. There was a bunch of odds and sods and like, almost nothing that actually still… Read more »

Yes, Good

      No Comments on Yes, Good

It’s been a good day, all told. Work got vaguely worked, but mainly, I got to bask in cool weather and my children playing with each other. And what delights me is that their imaginary games sidewise includes me, whether or not I want it. Not that I’m complaining either! It meant hugs and giggles, and what parent is going… Read more »
