Today felt like a wasted day at work, but I don't think it really was. I mean,not my best, maybe, but things happened!

I got the baby sweater done, now I just have a zillion ends to weave in...

I did dyeing things! Finally!

I prepped goldenrod, black eyes susans, and queen anne's lce. We'll see how those are looking tomorrow or maybe Sunday.

And then I decided I would try and overdye an older skein (In The Flesh - a reaaaaally pale pink form copper beech) with avocado pitsm since they apparenly give a pretty pale pink as well.

Well that went weird, because it turned out a vwry yellow pnk for me. So now it looks *seriously* like a flesh tone. I'll have to see how it loks in natural light tomorrow and when it is dry.

I also go a bunch of knitting on a baby kimono done today too wooh! But I stayed up too late doing it. Boo.

I'm getting worse at this. And too busy! I could do a social thing every day from today through Sunday, but iight die.

Last night I went yarn shopping and then out for food I didn't need, and it was nice but I had stuff I needed to do after and didn't get to touch the dyeing I wanted to do :( Maybe tomorrow? Tonight is game, so maybe after that could get some things started, hmm...

The eclipse was definitely the height of my work day. I made a pin hole camera and got a bunch of other people to try it out too! But otherwise it was a dull, mundane day, and I was sleepy and under productive.

Oh well, better luck tomorrow! Maybe I'll be less distracted by cool astronomical events >.>


-------

Oh hey I thought I actually posted that yesterday? But I guess not. Okay then! Well it is no longer eclipse day. It is just a mundane Tuesday. I got things done at work. I got a lot of things done when I got home - I got some yarn scoured and mordanting, I wove in the ends in my larp shawl, I Dealt With walnuts in various stages of decay - tossed some, bagged some for dyeing, and hung some to dry downstairs where I can maybe... eat? them? later? I set up some discord channels (though the pokemon invite had expired, d'oh), and I did a bit of knitting. And drank some cider. Tomorrow I am going to a yarn shop in the evening with a friend, and maybe doing some more dyeing stuff, I dunno.

Now I am going to drink the rest of the cider, and go to sleep.

Night!

So this was a larp weekend, and it was completely rad! I spend an hour yesterday crying alone in a cabin I had locked everyone else out of - good times! NO really though, I eman it. I got caught up with a random magical effect that made me think that another character was my dead husband, and then I was SUPER UPSET with him that he hadn't told me he was alive and had just been hanging out workign for one of my in game friends - so of course I was mad at her too :V And other people thought that I thought that I was married to the other character (who is a very orcish orc). After I explained why it was creepy that he wanted to have sex with me when I thought he was somebody else, he later came and apologized for it, which was surprising and awesome too (also all in character orcs aren't generally super discriminating about who they sleep with when the opportunity arises). It was super great RP all around. And that was only one part of my game weekend! I did a sper fun mod and some other character driven RP and I don't think I touched the 'main plot' all weekend.

Today we gave a tour at work for the Archaeological Conservancy of America, which was busy but I think went really well! They all seemed super pleased, even though they were late and we consequently went overtime. I had some transit shenanigans and I wound up getting a drive home from a neighbour, which was very nice of her. And tonight I got to do a solo scene for Diablotin, which is nice because we missed game today and last week. So all in all a great weekend :) And I'm at he stage of the shawl I've been workign on t larp where it is so close to done I can taste it, so I am going to finish it up tonight or maybe tomorrow. And then I'll need another game project...

I got looking at the internet instead of showering or making this post.

Knitting earlier, and before that I went to dinner with two of my friends. It was nice, though the cider I had was not great - bitter.

Work was fine and I finished another project. I'm close to done the third, and can probably wrap it up tomorrow if I buckle down. I want to leave a little early,as I have LARP this weekend, but we'll see, I guess!

I keep forgetting yesterday was Monday :P

And I have a dentist appointment on Thursday. It's a weird week.

It was a weird day at work! I was chasing information around and attending impromptu meetings and calling people and stuff and *whew*! Busy.

I posted my galra mini exchange fic, not sure what I'm writing next:

Army of One (1063 words) by Measured_Words
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Voltron: Legendary Defender
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Haggar/Sendak (Voltron)
Characters: Haggar (Voltron), Sendak (Voltron), Zarkon (Voltron)
Additional Tags: Power Dynamics, Loyalty Kink, Medical Procedures, Implied Torture, Offscreen Dismemberment, Implied Eye Trauma, PG-13 is hard >.>

Sendak has failed his emperor, and is prepared to face the consequences. Haggar, however, doesn't want to see such a loyal underling wasted.

No children were murdered! I did have to almost put myself in timeout a few times, but they always balked and then settled down a bit when I told them I was done with them and was going to hide in my room. I think I let them have too much sugar today, but we are out of milk except chocolate milk, and a friend brought them chocolate cookies, and so on >.>

They really were good most of the day, though, but I was ill :/ They remind me of longpig and I when we were kids, good and bad.

Anyway, I managed without parents, but with help, for four days! And back to work tomorrow. And maybe some kind of other normalcy as well?

I'm tiiiired. Kids are waking me up before 7.

I'm probably going to go to bed around 10. The fam will be home tomorrow night at some point.... probably late. I have to work on Tuesday. So more sleep is definitely better, and I'm not going to get in on the morning side.

It was nice to have company and assistance over the weekend. Tomorrow I won't, so that will be exciting. Bubby is already refusing to come to take the dogs out -__-

Okay. I think I should just go to bed. Coherency can be a tomorrow problem...

Nary and fam are here this weekend, while Longpig and Wereroge are away, and I have the nephews.

We mainlined Voltron season 3 yesterday

I've been feeling weird off an on all day - lightheaded and sorta dizzy. We had ribs from ribfest fro dinner and they were pretty tasty, and there are plenty of leftovers for tomorrow. Also made peach ice cream.

Sleep now. At least I turned off the kids alarm clock >.>
