It was a good weekend. More on that tomorrow, maybe? I should be in bed but I'm too awake to sleep still :(

Still busy... Mostly packed for LARP...

Of course last night I woke up at 4:30 with a stabbing pain in my back -_- It is betterish but I guess we'll see how things go.

Now reading and sleep...

So busy! I have so muuuch to get done in the next few days ahhhhh!

And I spent most of my night hand winding a ball of yarn because ???? Reasons.

Also, Jola went to the vet for a check up, and it was not great. She is borderline for kidney disease, and she has arthritis in her hips and spine. So she needs a low protein diet, and fish oil, and love (always). Oh, and a urine test. Fun. My baby dog isn't allowed to be old :( (she's 9). And with blood testing and xrays (at least she doesn't have kidney stones or any tumors) and all her shots and such it was *expensive* to find this all out, too. Pleh.

A day of things that didn't really go as planned...


This morning bubby spilled my scalding hot tea.... fortunately over me and not him or his brother, but it was unpleasant and I needed to change out of the fresh-from-the-laundry pants I'd been planning to wear.

I was supposed to have a training course this afternoon.... but that did not actually happen. Apparently the person running it didn't actually put me on the list, and then there was only one other erson signed up, and it got cancelled. But since I wasn't on the list....

So I bussed to campus and back for nothing, and stiff haven't done the training that will give me access to the billing software that I need to do my job -_-

I did get an ice cap and a donut from Tim's on campus, and I took the forest path back to the building and took some pics, and it didn't actually rain, so that was okay. It isn't like I had anything at all to do at work today anyway :p I saw a LARP person again! Apparently Tim's is the place to go for that. Same person I saw last time that I don't think recognized me, and same thing again >.> I might have been bolder about saying hi if I didn't think I was in danger of being late to my training :p

And then Longpig hadn't soaked the beans to make the dinner she'd planned, and ordered form a bbq place! It was pretty tasty - I especially liked the pulled pork. And I have some for lunch tomorrow, too, so score!

So a day of things not really going as planned, but turning out okay.

Tomorrow, I decided that I *am* going to go to the A Tribe Called R.E.D concert, even if it means going by myself. because I really want to see, them, damnit! And it is not too far from my house, so why not?

Meanwhile, my sister has put squeakers (the kind from dog toys) in her bra, and is taunting my dog ;p

I went through a walk in the village today at work because I thought they were doing an archaeology open house thing.... but maybe I was too late because I didn't see anyone! I did see some cool plants (soooo many jack-in-the-pulpits, and now I've seen a blooming may apple as well), and then I saw a weasel (or actually I think it was a mink) carrying it's dinner (a chipmunk)! So cool!

And then when I took Jola out for a walk right before the drenching thunderstorm hit (one of several short bursts of same tonight), we saw three fat little groundhog babies in the field across the street :3

No pictures of any of them, unfortunatley. But they were all super cute!

Today has been overall pretty chill. Things that were bugging me yesterday seem at least less pressing, even if they aren't at all resolved. I had Diablotin (yaaaay!), and I did some knitting, both during and after game. If I'd really pressed, I probably could have finished the chart I'm working on. Other than that, I did a few minor house things, chatted with folks, and that was about it? I may regret not doing laundry this weekend, but I don't think I actually have that much at the moment. I thought about doing some dyeing but it takes up a lot of space :| On the other hand I really want to finish mordanting my stuff so I can use that cherry bark! maybe.... Tuesday? The other thing I talked about doing and then did not at all accomplish was cutting Jola's toenails. Also I need to make her an appointment. Wednesday?

Tuesday I have that course, and otherwise I'm not sure what I'm doing at work next week... but I'm sure something will come up!

I started my little shawlette tonight - it is *not* going to be good bus knitting, but it should be a fun little knit for when I don't have the patience for beading. As long as I do have th patience for lace + cables >.>

The chart for it is weird and very non-standard, so I think I'm just going to stick with the written instructions this time. Or maybe I'll have the brain to figure it out later.

Diablotin was today, and it was good! I didn't do much else today... well I crafted some mines and made cupcakes and cleaned the kitchen. It didn't feel like much.

On Tuesday, the rest of the fam is going to the UK for two weeks. I'll be all alone and need to clean up after and feed myself entirely on my own :o I can probably managed it somehow though :P But it will be a really quiet two weeks...

Ahh well. Work tomorrow, though!

I...forgot to do entries. Derp.

-The kids had a birthday party on Saturday afternoon, so I had the house to myself since both their parents went with. So quiet!
-Board games at the neighbours that night! We played telephone pictionary, Dominion, and Robo Rally. There should be a rule against starting a game of Robo Rally that close to eleven o'clock at night :p
-The kids also had a sleepover, so Sunday morning was So Quiet.
-We didn't have a game on Sunday for Various Reasons. I did some writing, it was really nice.
-More writing, knitting, and Jessica Jones last night.

Work today went fine. Things got fixed, other things got set up, it was fine. The internet went out-ish for part of the afternoon. I still had slack and mirc, but everyone was quiet so I went and did some vacuuming in the repository. Wooh!

Tonight, signups for the Raksura exchange, more of Dark Disciple, and more writing. I put in for a pinch it Space Swap, and if I get it, I will basically only have tomorrow to write it, so I'm going to have to start it tonight just in case.
