Right now I’m reading The Last Days of the Dinosaurs by Riley Black (AKA @Laelaps) and enjoying it immensely! So is my T. rex, in her own way…
I’ll be sure to share my thoughts when I’m done! 😊

Hi all! Happy Sunday! So… this happened last Sunday (actually it started before the weekend… it’s a long story) but it didn’t make it into last week’s post. However, it was pretty significant:
The already faulty motherboard in my iPad ended up taking a total dump. Actually, what this means is that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth no longer work, and fixing this is not an easy or economically sound thing to attempt. I can deal with no Wi-fi, but no Bluetooth means no Apple Pencil. So my very beloved iPad was kaput, now to be sold for parts.
Now I have a new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil 2. I am very grateful to have received a donation from a very generous and kind commissioner which I have turned into a commission credit for them. And my husband lent me the money for the balance. But it definitely caused a ton of stress and was kind of the…whatever the opposite of “highlight of this week” means, though I guess getting a new iPad is nice, in some ways I still preferred the old one. Especially the pencil.
That aside –let’s get on with the summary!
Ian is here!! He’s smaller than I anticipated…
He perches perfectly next to my minis, though. I am pleased.
More scrapbooking supplies came in. I love, LOVE using playing cards to scrapbook.
Rosie will get comfy anywhere… she was purring tons.
Tuesday morning I went out for a walk and to get scrapbooking supplies. On the way back I had a little brunch at Colada:
With my new scrapbooking supplies I created a brand new scrapbook. Here are some WIP and final photos!
It’s ✨ shiny ✨
This was a lot of fun, I can’t wait to fill it up!
Thursday was my ID appointment. I got my name change, and I finally became a registered voter! I can’t wait for my first chance to vote.
Saturday morning I went on a quick Walmart run. I finally found my Barbasol can!! And some Jurassic World surprise eggs! AND a mini pack! It had a T. rex inside.
I can’t believe I didn’t take photos of this, but Saturday was my playdate with my friend Shelly! I set up the playroom again, and we had dino nuggets for lunch (Jurassic World, of course!):
We colored with crayons, watched Bambi and Disney’s Dinosaur, played board games, and then Shelly’s partner came over. We had burgers, drank, and played Mario Party. It was tons of fun and I can’t wait for them to visit again!
Oh yeah –in the morning my way, WAY delayed Giga order arrived… he’s very cute (and BIG):
Today I gave an attempt at making my own açaí bowl! It didn’t turn out perfect, but it was good.
I also installed my new iPad skin and added the wallpaper to match. I love it! Now my new iPad Pro is all my own.
And that’s it for this week! I’m slowly beginning to catch up.
Hello, everyone! First of all, I want to apologize for my absence/commission delay which I hinted at but did not fully explain. Being sick three times (never COVID but always sucky) having a weekend-long Easter visit with family, an almost week-long visit of my dear friend Mwako during which time I did not work at all, dealing with important travel paperwork AND having my period on top of it all, meant that no commission work got done whatsoever.
I am now back at the tablet and getting things done, so you all will be getting your WIPS and/or finished pieces over the next few days. But before that –here’s this week’s summary!
Monday was a special day. It was the Jurassic World Dominion street date for the new toys! Christopher and I made a deal: I could spend up to $200, and anything I purchased would be set aside for my birthday and Christmas. This suited me fine! I went to Target and Walmart and came back with a cart full of things. 😁 Although, the new displays were not out at Target, a very nice employee got me everything I wanted from the back.
I also passed by Five Below on the way back and scored a few nice Super Mario finds!
A Super Mario Easter egg and Mario Kart UNO cards! The UNO cards I plan to use for scrapbooking. I loved that the puzzle below had Bowser Jr. in it!
It was otherwise a quiet, busy day, prepping the house, doing chores, and drawing.
On Tuesday, it was more and more prepping. I had a lot to do. But I did take some time to myself in the morning, walked to the mall, had a snack there, and bought some pins to decorate my new Galactic Pal bags:
Wednesday I was up at 5:00am to finish prepping the playroom. It took more work than you imagine, simple though it looks (lots of lugging stuff downstairs, plus putting the mat together, moving furniture, building the tent –tricky on my own) but I think the end result turned out really nice!
The couch looked cozy…
Stuff for outdoor play!
Ricky Parky had not been down to play in quite some time!
Tomoyo was really interested in all the toys…
At least she couldn’t bite this. She definitely tried to bite other things.
I used my travel pillow as a chair for Cookie:
Everywhere you looked it was colorful and full of toys and things to do, games to play, books to color…
Out of the Jurassic World Dominion release, there were a couple of cheaper dinos that I bought for myself so I wouldn’t have to wait to play with them, such as this cute Imaginext gal. She’s really expressive! You can move her up and down and side to side by the tail, open and close her mouth, and change her facial expression! Her arms move too!
Coloring books and games…
I love this Jurassic World version of TOMY’s classic Pirate Pop-Up game!
My new T. rex friend was looking for trouble…
More friends and fun things to do! 🌈🌟🚂 Socks was a little surprise gift for Mwako.
On Mwako’s first night with us, we went to Blue Ginger, a fancy sushi restaurant where the food is served in little floating boats. It was wonderful, I was so happy we got to go because it’s one of Christopher’s favorite places that we can so rarely afford, and Mwako treated us all.
On Thursday we took Mwako to my (currently) favorite park, Marhham Park. I picked a very colorful outfit, and brought Cookie along on her first outing:
First we did a quick Starbucks run for breakfast at the house.
Cookie tried her first cake pop!
Once at the park it was time to explore. I love this place, with its pine-needle covered floors. It looks kind of otherwordly in places. The more I explore Florida the more I find beauty I didn’t know it had.
Here’s a couple of pics I got of me and Mwako:
It was overall a super nice time. I did at one point get chased by a few bees and really panicked and ran for a long, long stretch, leaving Mwako and my partner well, WELL behind. Later they told me that as I did that, they heard what had to have been a gator jumping into the water, mere feet from us. They said it definitely sounded like something bigger than a grown man.
What makes that a bit scary is that on recent Googling I found out a woman was attacked by a gator during a jog at this same park. It wouldn’t surprise me if it was that same area. 😬 I guess it’s a good thing that I was running!
Anyway, I’ve been doing stops at Walmart/Target/Dollar Tree/etc, and here are some finds. First, a couple of Uncaged Wild Pop-Ups:
A couple of super cute cups from the dollar store, Berenstain Bears and Arthur-themed:
And some Jurassic Wold stickers:
On Friday, we went to Butterfly World. This is truly the perfect time of the year to go! The amount of butterflies was off the chart, like stepping into a fairy tale world.
First, here’s an all-butterfly set of photos. They were just so pretty.
A cute caterpillar friend!
The birds here are very tame and friendly:
This one was taking a little bath:
This one was… feeling territorial?
I didn’t know canaries ate lettuce, did you?
This little guy was tucking in for a nap. 😊
In the museum and insect area, the moths were my favorite, but everything was beautiful and interesting:
Here’s a wriggly mealworm. These guys are small, but they can bite! If they didn’t I might want to have them as pets.
We bought a couple of plants before leaving. An almond bush which was part of the reason behind the trip, and a mimosa plant as a gift for our dear Christopher. 🥰 After Butterfly World, we went back to the house to play some games in the playroom I’d set up.
We played the T. rex pop-up game first. It was lots of fun! I jumped every time. 😅
Then we played Yeti In My Spaghetti for a while, before it was time to set the table for our burger dinner.
I had special fancy dino paper plates for the occasion! I had to get another one though because someone spilled his drink all over me and my T. rex… 😑
Let’s start this day with a photo of Tomoyo, laying elegantly as she does:
Mwako continued to humor me by driving me to Targets so I could look for more Jurassic World Dominion stuff. So in the morning we were off, first breakfast at Starbucks and then to Target.
I was very excited at this particular Target because it was my first time finally seeing a Dominion display!
Some neat things I saw (but didn’t buy) were this Pokémon themed Labyrinth game by Ravensburger and this Jeep Wrangler R/C car, Jurassic World themed. I was really tempted by the car… 😅
Ultimately, I came home with this super cute Elmo backpack and Jurassic World Dominion set of minis, both of which Mwako was kind enough to treat me to:
Once home, it was time to move on to some backyard fun! Well… back porch fun. We blew some bubbles, for starters, but I don’t have photos of that. It was fun, though. Ricky sat and watched, it had been a while since he came out to play, as I mentioned:
New T. rex was excited to get into the chalk so we quickly moved on to that.
Playing with chalk was so much fun. I never got to do this as a kid, believe it or not. Chalk was something we only had at school, and colored chalk? What is that, anyway? So, silly though it may seem, this made me really happy.
Ricky Parky had a blast too!
The cats were very curious about the chalk, smelling it, rolling in it, and just being generally very interested and wanting to be involved in our playtime.
Rosie was arguably the most interested of all:
I tried drawing Mwako, a snail and a subrosian for Christopher (that one ended up being my favorite):
I also drew one of our house “soots”:
Mwako did a pretty spiffy job of drawing Stitch!
After that it started to sprinkle, so we went back inside to continue our fun.
A pause for more Tomoyo, this time giving me a half-hearted but playful air-swat:
Time to play some more! First some Jenga…
We each had a cute snack. Since today was special, I picked one of my Good2Grow Podz. Grogu is so cute!
I had my veggie chips in my Bluey bowl, not that you can tell…
The movie for the evening was Brother Bear, an old favorite. It’d been a while since I last saw it. We colored with crayons while watching and just had a nice time.
After the movie, Mwako, my partners and I all went to mini golf. That was a lot of fun to do late in the evening! They closed just as we left.
Today, Sunday, was the last day with activities, since Mwako is leaving tomorrow.
I opened my minis in the morning while having some quiet time to myself. They are so cute!
Look at that adorable tiny carnie, a perfect little chonk:
Being time for another outing, I got dressed up, new backpack and all:
I picked Dusty to accompany me today:
We took Mwako to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park today. This was a lovely setting to take photos of Dusty in, just like Marham Park with Cookie:
Here are some random pics without Dusty in them. Of course I still have to add stickers.
Here’s Mwako looking super cute in the outfit I picked for him to wear. Pink looks great on him, I think!
Our time at the park was fun but exhausting because it was so hot. Once we got back home and freshened up, we sat down to have some “kiddy time” again. First we laid down the Richard Scarry’s Busytown Eye Found It! board game:
It’s a high quality game, with a massive board and very cute pieces:
It’s a collaborative game, either all players win, or the “pigs” win. We enjoyed it, and it certainly has lots of replayability.
At some point, I don’t remember when, I ate this cute chocolate Easter sheep:
After the board game, we played with blocks. It may seem silly, but don’t knock it til you try it. With LEGO, you still have to “think”. There’s something incredibly relaxing about playing with big-ass blocks. Once you let go, all your adult worries melt away, if only for a little bit.
I “play” in a bit more of a conventional manner, making “houses” for my Thomas The Tank Engine Mega Blok figures:
In you go:
Incidentally, I was wearing my bear kigu. It really helps put me in a certain kind of mood when I play with toys such as these. 🐻
Mwako, for his part, is far more chaotic, creating some impressive (and sometimes slightly frightening) creatures:
This here has to be one of my favorite photos of this visit…
We drank as we played and ended our evening in the little tent, just laughing and kinda pouring our hearts out to each other in a tipsy haze. This ended up being the most memorable portion of the week for me. It was such a lovely end to the visit, and left me feeling much closer to my beloved friend of now quite a few years, and looking forward to another visit later this year.
I know this was a very long post. If you read it all, I’m so grateful! Hope it was enjoyable. 😊
Hello everyone, it’s time for the weekly update. As I’ve stated on Twitter, these past days I wake up and after my coffee and news reading it feels so frivolous to do my chores, work on art, or on my blog, or play with the cats. I feel so utterly guilty to have my privileged peaceful existence, for no reason other than luck.
I hope it’s not inappropriate to continue sharing happy mundane things or cutesy art. I’m not trying to be callous, but I also want to continue recording my daily life, making art, and hopefully making people smile if I can.
Before I move on with my nonsense, I want to share this link with you. It is a C|NET article with information on how to help Ukrainian refugees and others affected by Russia’s unprovoked, cruel attack, it also lists the Charity Navigator ranking of each of these charities. I encourage you to take a look and help in any way that you are able.
A lot of things happened this week. Firstly, I spent most of the week sick. Well, sort of. I hadn’t been sick all of this time, since COVID began, and finally caught Christopher’s latest head cold. So I had a bit of a sore throat and sinus pain and LOTS of sniffling and sneezing but otherwise felt 100% okay, which may sound weird, but generally my colds/coughs/etc are awful, usually bad enough (if attacking my chest) that I need to see a doctor due to infection that will linger up to two months. It has been quite bad on occasion. My last illness was strep throat which was an absolute nightmare… so this was a walk in the park really.
Still, I was in bed a bit more than usual. Tomoyo kept me company.
Recently I’ve been taking more and more walks with one of my partners, definitely a highlight of the days on which we do. My walks are generally very utilitarian… burn this many calories, move on with my day. These walks are now more leisurely, engaged in conversation and looking at little things. Burning less calories I suppose, but it’s pretty good for my mental well-being.
Here is a moth we spotted on one recent such walk. It was very big:
Tomoyo has been sweet, staying near me lots. Her asthma continues to be an issue. I try to give her as much affection and attention as I can. Here are some photos I took of her spending time near me while I work…
And a photo/some video from the studio floor…
Turn sound up for cute sounds. She scared herself somehow.
At one point I tried taking a couple of selfies with her. She did not cooperate, this was the best I was able to get.
Later in the week we went to walk around C. B. Smith Park. I hadn’t been there in a while. We saw some cute Muscovy duckies…
They were very friendly. Next time I’ll bring some healthy seeds or frozen peas to feed them.
They had a bit of an argument at one point…
Here’s a little flower we spotted while chasing iguanas, and just a nice view of the side of a bridge we crossed:
And little ones…
I found my first geocache at C. B. Smith. Though we search together he always finds them first. So I was excited to finally find one, I’m really not very good at finding them yet.
Afterwards I got treated to an acai bowl, it’s one of my new favorite things, especially after a long, hot walk such as this one!
Variable Barricade released this week! To the backlog it goes… but slowly I am resuming “normal life”, and expect to enter a proper gaming schedule soon. 🙂
This is something I really want to do in a serious manner… I love gaming and just cannot find the time. I need to create an actual structure within which to do so, or else I’ll have invested hundreds of dollars in games I do not allow myself to play because work seems too important by comparison.
For date night this week, we finally went to Mister O1. We tried last date night but the wait was too long. It was pretty good. Simple as it was, the appetizer was my favorite.
We ate outside. It’s really nice to do that for a change.
Another day this week I got to visit a smoke shop. I don’t smoke but they have so many cool and hilarious things, such as this E.T. offering free condoms:
And these adorable Grogu pipes, which I just had to photograph to show my sis-in-law:
Friday was my favorite day this week. Our normal walk ended up feeling more like a long date. 🥰 We went to two parks, one which I’d been one (Secret Woods Nature Center) and one to which I had not (Topeekeegee Yugnee Park).
Secret Woods Nature Center is always lovely, shaded, with lots of little things to see, including many tiny crabs and spiders.
It’s a very magical-feeling place. When you’re there, all the noise from the city and traffic mere steps away seems to just fade into nothing.
(CW: SPIDER ahead.)
One of the many leggy friends we came across…
On the way to the second park, a huge plane flew right over us. I was able to get some cool pics:
Next came what really was the best part of all! Topeekeegee Yugnee Park was FULL of squirrels. Never seen so many in one place.
This time I’d brought a baggie with healthy treats for them: raw unsalted peanuts, seeds, etc. Not too much, just enough to have the pleasure of feeding them for a bit. They were shy, but soon I was surrounded, it was wonderful.
There were birds too, trying to steal all the seeds, and they were fast. So I had to be quick, too, to help the squirrels get some, because they feared the aggressive birds.
Here’s some video of that. Pesky things… I do like the birds too, but I wish they shared better!
And one more video of squirrel feeding. Forgive my dumbass voice, I was so excited.
Here’s a couple more photos of this lovely place:
Anyway, yeah, this was an utterly wonderful experience. I want to come again as soon as possible.
One last super cool thing. A geocache we found. It was a hole in a tree and the stopper was stuck of a piece of bark! Incredibly well done.
I’ve made sure not to identify the specific park or location, so hopefully it’s okay to share this photo, I just thought it was fascinating. I would have never found this by myself!
This has become a bit of a thing, by which I mean that I beg for pancakes every Saturday morning and for the last three weeks, it has happened.
This time we added chocolate chips, and whipped cream, and the best strawberries I’ve had in months/years. It was delicious!
Saturday night we all went out together. We went to Ra Sushi first, a restaurant I’ve always wanted to eat at. It was a good time as it always is when I am in such wonderful company, but man, service was S L O W, and my ramen was literally the worst I have ever, ever had.
BUT! The drinks were very good. I had three mojitos and some sake. I spilled one of my mojitos but it was almost empty. I was not very steady for the rest of the evening. 🙈
After dinner we went to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where we had some alcoholic ice cream…
…and I gambled and lost $5 on a slot machine.
Here’s a couple of really cool Wall-E and Eve cakes we saw:
We got home late and tired but it was a very enjoyable evening. I’m glad to be making so many happy and fun memories together. 🥰
Here is all the art that got done this week. I also worked a bunch on my book, so it was a pretty productive one, overall!
I think this was a very good week, at least as far as my own life is concerned. Certainly not for the world. I keep reading the news, hoping for some sort of peaceful resolution. Here’s hoping next week brings better news on that front.
Hello everyone, how are you? 😊 I’ve had a really happy week so far. Christopher has worked late every night this week, which has been the… what’s the opposite of a highlight? Anyway, it was the one bummer about the week. I got used to having him home in the afternoons. 😔 However, we still managed to have lots of quality time together somehow. That did make up for it, and was really nice.
Monday I got lots of commission work done, and that night I made a nice salmon dinner:
Also, I deleted the Twitter app again, at least for now. Really, the only difference it makes is that I can’t look at my lists or follows (my Internet blocks still allow me to post and reply on my browser). I did it because the negativity was getting to me a bit again, and I was spending too much time on it. I’ll check in again at some point, maybe during the weekend (writing this part of the post on Wednesday, even though I’ll be wrapping it up Saturday or Sunday). But truly the benefit is always immediate. Suddenly I have lots of extra time and feel less stressed. 😅
Since I always have to be reading something, not using my phone/Twitter means that I’ve gone back to playing Wintertide Miracles as well as reading the Tarzan trilogy. I’m almost done with the last volume (The Beasts of Tarzan).
As I’ve read these books, I really marvel that they made a kids’ movie with this as the source material. It’s really kind of hilarious. These are not child-friendly books, but that is the least of the issues with them, really. 😅 Let’s just say that I think today, Disney would not touch these books for a possible adaptation with a ten foot pole. I’ll go into more detail in a future post.
I finally secured my new t-rex to the wall (and also to the shelf, just in case it tips over). Doesn’t she look amazing! The Imaginext baby raptors and t-rexes are large, around 9” tall, so that gives you an idea of how massive my new lady is:
On this day I also went to Target and to the craft store for ingredients to make handmade chocolates for my Valentines. 🥰 I saw this little book while at Target and took a photo because it was so cute:
When I got back home, I once again sat down to get lots more commission work done, while Kotoko and Rosie kept me company:
I love having cats… I’ve enjoyed having dogs too, and of course rats, and hamsters, and birds. But the lowest-stress pets I’ve ever had have been cats and snails. Both have such a knack for reducing my stress levels. Even the snails do. I’ll set out to deep clean the tank, with some dread because it’s such a job that requires such a careful hand and full-on attention. Yet when I’m done, it has melted my stress away.
And, being as I am someone who enjoys almost constant quiet company, thanks to the kitties I do not feel lonely during my workday. It’s really nice. I’m grateful to have them.
This was the best day of the week! The contractor was supposed to come work on our friend’s future bedroom which needs to be finished ASAP. But there was a miscommunication and he didn’t show. Still, I did all my chores in the morning, once again got a LOT of commission progress done, and watched almost the entire first season of Camp Cretaceous. I liked it a lot!
I spent the evening in very good company, got to go to Starbucks, and in the afternoon my polyam necklace came. It’s really beautiful and I’m going to be wearing it as much as possible. 😌💕
Christopher came home a little later and I had a dinner of beef tacos waiting for him. After dinner, we watched Ghostbusters: Afterlife which was great. I drew until my iPad was dying, and then we cuddled for the remainder (about half) of the movie. And after that we watched more of The Secret of Blue Water in bed. It was a very nice evening. With him working so late I didn’t expect to have so much time together, I know it helps when I have all my chores done and dinner ready, though… 😬 Gotta work on that so we can have more times like these.
Anyway, I definitely got my fill of affection/attention on this day, so I went to bed blissfully happy.
Christopher let me have a huge treat on this day (literally and figuratively)! The apatosaurus I wanted so badly!
I’ve been worried about just missing out on it since things just keep going out of stock and not coming back… so in exchange for cancelling my Pokémon Legends: Arceus preorder, he let me have my apatosaurus. It was a no brainer, I can always get the game in the future.
I walked all the way back from Target with this big heavy box, which thankfully is still the smallest of the legacy boxes, because it has to be put together.
I couldn’t resist taking some outside photos…
I especially love the detail on the face, and being able to have it hold leaves in its mouth! 😄
On Friday I finally found a good place for my new dino friend, right above my computer area. I think it looks very majestic!
The afternoon and evening was very pleasant. Someone came to look at the room that needs work again, and our friend/future roommate came over in the evening. I made dinner for the three of us (salmon croquettes) and then we played Smash and Mario Golf: Super Rush for a while.
I did decently well in both games (for me). I’m terrible, terrible at Smash, which my old wrist injury doesn’t help with at all. The two times I managed to win (one being Friday night) was early matches before it started bothering me too much.
I love Ludwig, by the way. I don’t have much chance to express that because there just isn’t much merch or anything of him, but I adore him. I always play as him in Smash now (didn’t find Daisy as fun as I expected –still play as her in Mario Golf though).
After that, our friend played Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island (for, I think, a couple of hours?) while we just enjoyed each other’s company and watched.
I think I might have to play this game myself, I never did before, and it looks so adorable. I think that was my favorite part of the evening, just sitting mostly quietly together, watching. Times like those are truly the happiest for the three of us, I think. I feel totally at peace, safe, loved.
When I’m feeling like that, nodding off, I just wish I could just fall asleep like that and wake up in bed the next morning not knowing how I got there.
This morning I somehow coaxed Christopher outside, and we went to have breakfast together. 🥰 Also picked up a small treat for our friend, since he’s showing up at some point this weekend.
I brought Picaña along:
Christopher’s smile was looking unusually adorable this morning so I took a picture. I just love him so much, I’ll never get tired of looking at him smile like this. 🥺💕💕💕
The lights at this place were super cool!
Last two days I also got a ton of commission work done (all nine warm-ups that I had left) which have already been posted almost everywhere. I’ll be posting them here too in a bit (I’ll post-date them though so they don’t bury this post). After that, I’ll begin my weekend housework, and then, more commissions, of course.
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
Aren’t they super cute?? I love them!
Hey everyone. I’m home again, cramps are bad, slowly unpacking and getting ready for bed. I may be slow tomorrow still if my body continues to hate me, but my mood is good. I hope everyone has a lovely night.
Morning everyone. Well… afternoon, I guess. Even though I went to bed in a much better mood (and still am) the night sucked. It was fine until around 4:30am, I think? Around then, the power went out. So, with that, a bunch of things happened in succession.
My mom’s UPS began to beep. I woke up, she stirred enough to start snoring loudly. Suddenly I had strong cramps —I’d probably just been sleeping through them until then. I waited a while, wanting to put on my earplugs but afraid because I wasn’t sure if the burglar alarm worked when the power was out, and if it’s not, I feel much less safe wearing my earplugs.
In the end I had to, I just couldn’t sleep otherwise. I put them on, but by then, without the fan or AC the room was becoming sweltering. I eventually managed fall back asleep, and the power took like two hours to return. Then I woke up again when my mom started getting phone calls from the gas station because the longish outage was causing issues that they couldn’t fix without her.
It was bad enough that she had to go to the gas station in person to fix the mess that the outage caused. I tried to get a little more sleep during that time, but just couldn’t. So maybe I will after I finish writing this post.
Other than that we had a pleasant morning after my mom got back. As usual, we had mate…
We let Sweeney and Shampoo out, and left the door open a bit. After a while, my mom’s landlord’s cat, Lincoln, came to visit:
My mom has a catnip plant, so she cut some pieces to give him and he absolutely lost his mind.
I’m feeling pretty good other than being so sleepy. I’m happy with my writing progress lately, and with commission progress today. Looking forward to some stuff coming in the mail. Crossing my fingers for a fun weekend (maybe).
Anyway, gonna try to nap, though Bangers’ look from above my iPad seems judgmental. I feel like I should be working. 😬
Hope you’re all enjoying your week! 🐪
I guess I feel a bit better now. 😒 It’s mildly infuriating to have emotions that are so easy to upset and, conversely, so stupidly easy to please. Hormones do make it worse, but still, it’s problematic. Sometimes I feel like I’m too simple when it comes to some things, and it’s annoying.
Why can’t I be aloof and blasé like other people? 😩 I guess I just am what I am, though, and I can’t help that. Anyway… here’s a beautiful sky from today’s morning walk:
I’m at my mom’s now, getting commissions done, eating good things, and just relaxing. When I got here my mom had the usual little snacking spread…
And she made me one of my favorite foods for dinner:
I’ll be gaming a bit here and there, but really mostly working. I’m not sure that I’ll go for any walk tomorrow. I’d like to, but I don’t enjoy walks around my mom’s place as much. So we will see how I feel in the morning.
Before I sign off, here’s some Tomoyo:
I’m very sleepy… last night was bad, but I think tonight me and my simple brain will sleep much better. 🙄 I swear it feels sometimes as though I can only process like, two emotions. This is probably why I find snails so appealing, with their two neurons. Sigh.
I’ll post the fitness entry with a delay since the WordPress app hates tables. Goodnight all.
I’m really busy and don’t have much to say today –housework and art have me slammed. But I wanted to share the photo above, the colors were so pretty. Overall I’ve had a good day.
For dinner, I made salmon. Christopher was pleased with how it came out, made me so happy. 😌
That’s it for today, tomorrow we are hopefully going out, so I’m looking forward to that!
