Yesterday when I realized at almost midnight that I hadn't made a daily Post, my reaction was as above. It still is this morning, if I'm being honest, but is no longer an option. So instead, I'm bundled up in my rain gear on the bus towards work. I don't have any cash, so before I go buy strawberries I need to go to Loblaws and buy something to get some cash back. At least a chocolate croissant, probably a fruit smoothie, and maybe some tea, since I haven't had and today and my work stash is empty of caffeinated kinds. Then market strawberries, the other bus to work. I need to do better there, and be more self driven. I have plans and ideas, I just need to follow through

Definitely caffeine first, though.

So much time on my hands that I almost forgot an entry!

I had a super chill evening. I submitted the wiki entry after talking over more stuff with a co-contributor, and having a related LARP geekout about my favourite underworld deity. I got to cheer-read other people's fic. Life is good!

Tomorrow is going to be kind of hectic at work, because there is a lot of stuff going on, but also kind of not, because almost none of it is actually 'stuff I need to do'.

And then knitting! But maybe dinner with a friend I haven't seen in ages first? We shall see :)

Billing training tomorrow, finally!

Maybe getting an answer about my farm from the last LARP game is imminent! I think I am nearly done with the wiki article!

Wednesday I am going pokehunting (probably) and Thursday I have knitting!I don't remember if I have anything going on on this weekend, at least. How did I get so busy? Man. Oh I guess I might have Diablotin if we can figure out when a good alternate time would be!

I feel like I had another thing, bu I can't remember what now :p Ahh well, I should be home early tomorrow, anyway, because of the training.

Took an allegra and a rectine. No hives or faceleaking but I am dumb and sleepy af.

But I got many kitty toes trimmed and had some nice cuddles.

I had 13 today and it was a really good session, I think! I'm so lucky to have so many good engaging games, and such awesome people to RP with in all of them. Also got some knitting done.

Yesterday I brought in the yarn in the cherry bark bath.... and there was nothing, no change at all. I'm super disappointed. It just smells gross now :/ I'm not sure if I should rescour it and go through the whole mordanting process again, or what. Maybe I can try again with some queen anne's lace/wild carrot tops, which are supposed to be green. Maybe bark dyes just don't work with solar dyeing. I dunno, but I am disappointed, boo :(

I need to pick a writing project. I finished all my exchange fics and have freedom to do what I want if I only could decide what that is ;p

On a Friday night. My life is so thrilling.

Went to the market this morning and bought too many snacks, and also strawberries for making ice cream, at HD's request. They bled through the cloth bag they were in and tried to stain my light beige skirt. Fortunately my boss had a shout stick.

Work today was s-l-o-w, but partly that is my faut for not actually doing anything I *could* be doing. There was a nesting snapping turtle, which was the highlight of my day. And I got to see the improvements in the vive recreation. And also I had to make a bunch of phone calls right at 4:30, pleh. But it was fine.

I had to pick up a prescription after work, and after dinner and dog walks helped the kids put together the custard for the ice cream. I'll either finish it tomorrow, or they can finish it when they get back from BiL's comany picnic (immediate family only, alas). I told them to bring me back some delicious food.

Other than that, I bleached my sister's roots and re-watched an episode of Voltron with Nary (and did a teensy bit of knitting).

I need to do a bio and look over my contract for RTSW. I should do some more wrangling. I should sort out my dyes and decide if that cherry bark worked at all or if I just need to wash the cotton and overdye it with something else.

We'll see what the weekend actually holds, I guess!

Game all the games!

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...

I had been doing well on my posting streak... ahh well!

I even thought about posting yesterday, and then didn't -_- In my defense, I got distracted reading tons and tons of excellent jukebox fics! I always wind up writing more for this than I expected, and this year was no different, though I'll wait for reveals to be more specific. There are a lot of really excellent stories and art though - go read around!

All three (!) of the fics I received were excellent, and I'll try and elaborate on that some tomorrow. Today was mostly reading both Jukebox and also Kai Ashante Wilson's novella The Devil in America on the TOR site, which is excellent, but do heed the warning.

Also Dyeing! I got my second mordanting done on the linen and the cotton. The linned I'm going to dry and set aside for now, but the cotton is going into the cherry. I drained the liquid out of the container it has been sitting in, and simmered the park in fresh water. I'll strain that and the other liquid back into the container tomorrow, and then I'm going to leave the cotton yarn in that bucket for a few days to a week to sit out in the sun and bake :D Annnnnd since it is cotton and I can iron mordant it, I am going to make up some mordant to do that with so I can experiment with that later too :D I'm super excited!

But for now, sleep - night all!

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!
