Nothing terribly fascinating, just photos of my lunch and snack that I took the trouble to take and decorate but they just didn’t “fit” with my other posts of today.
I had fried rice with tofu and water chestnuts, avocado, and seaweed:
I really like tonic water… I don’t drink it too often though because calories. I haven’t gone back to counting calories proper yet, but I have had a few false starts. I’m sure I’ll be back in the wagon soon. In the meantime? Panda cookies:
It’s here! I can’t freaking wait to play this game. Christopher bought it for me as a reward for passing my citizenship interview and civics test (and after a lot of whining 😁) I’m so excited to play it. This is the limited edition which comes with a beautiful Mylne figure. Here is the box before opening:
Before I show the figure I want to share a couple of trailers I found on YouTube:
And here she is! A gorgeous little thing.
I had some trouble getting her on the stand, but once I was done, it’s pretty solid:
I’m playing my games in order, it’ll be a while until I get to this one. But I imagine it’s one of those I’ll end up streaming!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I started to allow Kotoko to sit by the window next to my desk. She’s been enjoying it a lot. Sometimes she just lays as close to me as possible, and then I’ll put cat videos for her to watch. She has fun.
Here’s a little video of her playing with/watching some of it. First, some mice…
I didn’t want it to get old for her, so I closed the videos after a while, and this was very confusing for her:
She seemed a bit put out… 😅
Then she started to just… watch me. Stare at me from behind the monitor with just one eye. In the past few days I think I’ve sent Christopher three or four different photos of her doing this, but all the photos look identical. It’s a little creepy.
Sometimes, in the mornings, she plops down on the rug and snores there for a while before deciding to join me at the window desk:
And sometimes she just has to come down from the desk for a cuddle (or get some cuddling in on her way up to it). Here she was pressing her head against the crook of my arm really hard:
Yesterday I picked something different. She played with some “string”. Seems to be one of her favorites for now!
We both enjoyed this video of wildlife feeding. She did snap her little teeth at a squirrel head, though. It was cute, but a little scary.
I got some video of her watching this too. She was so into it.
A lot of the time now, she just sleeps behind the monitor and I hear her little snores.
It’s really adorable… I treasure these times with her.
Good morning guys! How are you today? I’m off to a very positive start and feeling very cheerful. I started my Fitness Log again, and did my first walk of the day. I’ll be Zooming with my mom soon, and hopefully I’ll get another walk in after the sun goes down.
Kotoko came to cuddle with me this morning. I’ve decided to allow her on my desk, which is by the window, and as a result she spends more and more time with me. I took so many cute photos and video of that, it’ll be for its own post, but here she is:
When she jumped on me, I had to snap a photo, even though my hair was still uncombed after my shower. 😅
I’m still doing lots of work to finish my site’s move. Most galleries need to be remade, but that’s basically all I have left to do at this point (well, that and the small changes that I’ll be using plug-ins for… I can’t do that until I get the Business plan.)
Everything is going pretty well. I’m continuing to catch up on chores and art and feeling less stressed. I have a bunch of new followers, I want to welcome all of you! This blog/site is pretty weird but I hope you have a good time here.
Oh, also, my collector’s edition of Märchen Forest: Mylne and the Forest Gift came in the mail. Christopher bought it for me as a reward for passing my naturalization interview and civics test (there may also have been some begging and cajoling involved.) It even comes with a figure! When I have time to open it I’ll be sure to share it with you all.
