Work was predictably dull.

Knitting was great! I'm getting well into chart 10 (of 13) for Puled by the Sunset. It's very pretty

We walked home, which my hip tolerated, and I have been ding a few basic stretches before bed, which will hopefully help? It feels nice, anyway, though it actually has been making sleeping weird :p I feel like I should go to the doctor but also like going to the doctor is just going to be a giant PITA and maybe not worthwhile. I cant guarantee that any of the individual things bothering me will eb acting up, I'm terrible at describing symptoms, and I don't think there is anything they can do for me anyway :| Diagnosis: I'm old and have not been sufficiently gentle on my body. Probably they will also say I'm overweight and that will help :p pleh

Today is a day of intense tiredness. I'd almost blame PM's but the timing is all wrong. Ugh, bodies. Ovulation, maybe? Because I need everything to get more intense, that's just peachy.

Work was fine, tomorrow is our Strategic Retreat, which is a little ominously named, especially since it has the potential to determine my future job prospects... And also the last day of filming.

We had a family meeting to talk about how we need to do better at keeping house... I guess we'll see if that has any impact.

Early bed for me I think. I'm wiped despite a mini-nap earlier.

Busy day at work, but there were cupcakes when I got home! Mind you we already have actual cake, and nanaimo bars.... but still! They were really good

Tomorrow is also going to be odd at work, but we'll see how it goes.

Well it isn't *midnight* yet so I guess that's not a total backslide :P

Nug party was today. Other than than, Diablotin! Which was a good session even if it was a bit temporally scattered since not everyone (including me) could make the regular time. Party was good - Nugsy had a great time and really that's the most important. The weather was pretty much perfect! And we have So Much Cake left over @_@

I watched all the Star Wars Whatsists of Destiny shorts tonight with Nary, but really it just made me want mooooooar! I'm sad that this will be the last season of Rebels :( But at least new movies will be out soon?

I think that's all I've got. I need to go shower (for really really real this time) and go to bed. At least I eventually remembered to take care of the kitty (food + box cleaning)...

I'm going camping tomorrow! I haven't been actually *camping* in forever. I have done related activities, like larp, or like renfest camping, but not go to a park and set up a tent and explore around, in many years. Although I think it will not be a ton of hardcore exploring - there are a few trails, and a beach. I'm bringing Jola though, so that should be fun! Anyway, I hope that it all goes smooth, as Nary is not a Camping type person and is basically just indulging me <3

We're leaving around noon tomorrow after we pck up some stuff at the store. Wheee! But also obviously I won't be around to post stuff, so peace out, friends!

I really hate basically losing a day to antihistamines. I don't know that I ever competely woke up. I did get some stuff done though:


-I got online to talk about game stuff
-I played Cards against Diablotin
-I got my yarn in the mordant bath
-I picked more berries
-I made a mediocre cobbler
-I helped move a kid bed (again)
-I mostly finished this pirate story?

Other things I'm forgetting probably? Now I'm super tired though, and I should already be in bed, bleh. work tomorrow, though I'm planning to leave a bit early.

Today was a suuuuper busy day in the end.

I went down town around noon to pick up some bras I'd ordered, and didn't make it home until almost 6! then after dinner I went out and picked a bunch of mulberries - tomorrow I'm hoping to get my yarn split and re-mordanted, and then I can mash up the berries for dye! I'll probably need more than I have (hough I have close to 2 pounds) because mostly what I have learned with these things is that it takes a *lot* of dyestuffs. Anyway, after that, Nary got here, yay!

Tomorrow is the 150th anniversary of Canada's confederation, but there are some legit reasons not to necessarily just jump right into celebrating, but take a moment to reflect about how we got here, what came before, and what kinds of improvements nd chances we need to work towards. Which I have been trying to at least think about, though downtown today was mostly Canada 150 stuff. I helped with the VR at the work booth for a bit, and watched a raptor (bird) educational display with the kids and took them to get their faces painted. I also bought the stuff to make nanaimo bars, so that has to happen tomorrow too! busy busy....

I don't remember if the last time I updated was yesterday or the day before.

Work has been odd. But I have tomorrow off (my stat holiday substitute for Canada day being on Saturday). And Nary will be here tomorrow night as she has a course on the weekend. I work on Monday, but then she and I are going camping for three days - with Jola. Adventure! We'll see how it goes I guess :3 Tuesday is also my youngest nephew's birthday!

I'm hoping to go downtown for a bit tomorrow. I also need to finish my pirate story, which I utterly failed to work on tonight. Instead - tumblr and gaming. Hi tumblr!

And now - good night!

For leaving this until the last minute :p

I got 2/3 things on my to do list done - the raspberries weren't quite ripe, but I got my Nigerian food and I did a bit more writing. And there was game, and I got some answers/options for what to do with my cotton yarn.

As far as it being a successful weekend, I can't remember anything that I am supposed to do next week at work, so I think that is a win!

And now - goodnight!

Today was a mixed bag. The strawberries I bought were crappy (sour, watery, and/or overripe), but they had cheap brownie bites at loblaws.

I managed to Do Things at work and not just waste time terribly, but I didn't get all the things I wanted to done, and I am still having trouble making myself work.

The weather was shitty - rainy and humid followed by warm and humid.

After dinner was just an awful stress pile and I'm still grumpy despite leaving the house for a bit.

I went to the mall and didn't buy too much ridiculous crap. I did get a birthday present for Nugsy, which was the goal.

I am trying to think of an idea for a pirate and ghost story anthology (submission deadline is July 7), which you might think would be second nature, but I'm getting bogged down in historical acts and I haven't even thought of a good idea yet :p

Probably at least part of my grumpyness is impending bees. also my tiredness. Time for bed I guess.
