It’s Tuesday! ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸŽ„

Hi everyone! Today was pretty good. I got a lot of YCH progress done, so if all goes well, tomorrow I should be posting six finished commissions. And you know, today we’re officially 25 days away from Christmas day!

Even though I was alone today too, I didn’t feel lonely and really enjoyed my entire day. I went on my long walk, went to Target, got to have UberEats, had a looong Zoom call with Christopher before bed and got to watch our friend work while I worked on commissions too which was wonderful and made it so I wasn’t one bit lonely at all.

Anyhow –here’s today’s snack!

I wasn’t expecting to find licensed Hercules fanfiction at Target, so I couldn’t pass it up…

It has surprisingly good reviews on Amazon. I’m looking forward to reading it.

This was my outfit for today. I really, REALLY liked how this looked on me. I’ve worked so hard on my body, for months now, and I continue to do so. To be truly happy in my own skin again is a wonderful feeling. I haven’t feel comfortable wearing something like this since I was in my early 20s.

My studio felt so cozy and Christmasy while I worked, so I took a picture…

Getting UberEats for myself is a rare treat that only tends to happen when Christopher travels. I ordered from Pincho Factory and it was delicious, though I can feel my skin suffering for it already… ๐Ÿ˜ซ

At bedtime, I played more Wintertide Miracles. And, I completed Impey’s First Christmas scenario.

Below are some spoilers for Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ soโ€ฆ donโ€™t read any more if you plan to play it!!

This was, by FAR, my favorite scenario yet. Everything I loved about Impey in previous routes was intensified here. I’ve said it before, but I love how flustered he gets when the MC decides to be forward with him, considering how overly affectionate and over-the-top he always is. After declaring his love for her hundreds of times, when she actually asks to hear him say it, he loses his shit so much that he quite literally runs away from her in an incredibly awkward, very un-Impey-like fashion.

I also LOVE the MC’s ocassional loss of temper towards him, even the one odd tsunderey moment. She doesn’t act this way toward any of the other LI’s in any scenario. Her personality definitely changes the most when she is with Impey, including her interests towards machinery.

As far as her demeanor, I believe in the previous fandisc (or maybe it was the main story?) she violently hits him over the head with a book for falling asleep at the wrong time or something, which is SO unlike the very gentle MC. She’s much more entertaining when she’s with him.

That aside, can we take a moment to admire the backgrounds in this fandisc? They are beautiful.

Anyway, it was a lovely scenario… over much too soon.

Now I just have Victor left (sigh. SIGH. Not a Victor fan.) Then I guess I’ll do the triangle scenario, I’m curious about that.

Birthday Tea Time!

My cramps were terrible this morning โ€”the worst theyโ€™ve been in maybe 3 years. Tea almost had to be cancelled! But four painkillers and a hot compress later, I managed to get ready to goโ€ฆ no fancy dress this time. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ I couldnโ€™t handle it feeling like that. I still felt decently cute, though.

Oh yeah –somehow, I forgot to show off this bag until today! The reason is that I got it during the recent vacation, as an early birthday present from Christopher. By which I mean I saw it at Boxlunch while Christopher was miles away (we spent that day in separate places) and I told him I’d had to have it even if I overdrafted my bank account. So, would he go halfsies with me on it as a birthday present?

In the end, he covered the whole cost, knowing how much this movie means to me on a spiritual level. ๐Ÿ˜ But I wasnโ€™t allowed to touch or take photos of it or anything until my actual birthday. And then I forgot because I’d hidden it. Anyway –here it is!

Christopher wore one of Grandpaโ€™s shirts today, so I took this photo to send to Grandma. Itโ€™s been just a couple of days since the first anniversary of Grandpaโ€™s passing… The flag was a gift from Grandma too so I included it in the photo:

Mignon was my companion for this outing!

๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ€ Time For Tea ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿฐ

Hereโ€™s Mignon with my first tea pick, a peaches and cream tea. Itโ€™s a favorite of mine.

Then we had quichรฉ and tomato soup!

Finally the best part came! I didnโ€™t take a photo of the tray this time… It’s the same as usual –lots of delicious finger sandwiches and sweets.

They always put so much effort in the little details!

We took our time and really enjoyed ourselves. It’ll be a while before we get to go again.

After tea, we went to walk around Tateโ€™s Comics. Then Christopher began to look for some other place to go before heading home, but so many old places we frequented had shut down permanently because of Covid… I just sat and played with Mignon while he looked on his phone.

Mignon might have gotten a little restless after a whileโ€ฆ

Eventually we went to a retro antique store and to a thrift shop. We didnโ€™t have any intention of shopping, but I found this book for just $1:

If you know these characters (you probably donโ€™t) you know how hard this stuff is to find! Canโ€™t beat it at just one dollar.

It really was a wonderful time. I didnโ€™t have the heart to tell Lia (the owner) that it might be months/over a year before we can go again. ๐Ÿ˜ขWith our current situation, I think we will be lucky to be able have such a treat for our next anniversaryโ€ฆ but it was such a lovely time, and I feel so lucky that we didn’t have to cancel it.
