A Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

Hello everyone! I hope you had a Thanksgiving weekend as wonderful as mine was. I wore my new white boots for the first time on Thanksgiving Day. I was so happy with my entire outfit:

Grover was my travel companion. It turns out if I bring down the cup holder, it makes a perfect little seat for Grover to be strapped in, seatbelt and all.

Thanksgiving was a bit less hectic, more peaceful than other years. A baby was born in the family on Thanksgiving Day so several family members were missing. Plus, some were not there due to just, family drama… ๐Ÿ˜ž it was a really nice meal together though. This was our spread, behind the table where we actually ate:

The weather was absolutely lovely, cool and overcast. After the dishes were done, we left Grandma’s house in Port St Lucie for my mom in law’s house. We did a quick stop at Big Lots first since it was the only open store. Christopher let me take a little Yoshi but in the end my mom in law was the one who bought it for me:

Once at the house, we got comfortable and our friend started mixing drinks. It was really cute to see his reaction to my mom in law’s roommate’s pomeranian; I’d completely forgotten that it would be there, and Christopher didn’t say anything on purpose, since our friend has a little pom of his own that he adores. The resident pom, Panda, was very happy with all the extra attention:

My mom in law made all the cats say hello to him too so they would stop being scared of his voice (because he doesn’t usually visit so they weren’t used to him). It didn’t really work, but Momo sat on him for a polite 30 seconds:

This evening was the most fun I had. We played Mario Party and Pictionary (it was my first time playing that) and I had two Mojitos which kind of destroyed me. This picture was taken earlier in the night. I was so happy to see Christopher smiling and having fun.

Naturally, he won at Mario Party, he usually does.

Christopher took this photo of me a bit later; I think I was well into my second drink by then and every time it was my turn to draw I basically dragged myself across the floor to the board. I half-slept between turns (pictured) and by the time I had to get up the next morning (at 4am!) for Black Friday, I was still kinda drunk.

It was the first time I went to sleep drunk and woke up drunk, but I didn’t have a bad hangover and I didn’t throw up. So… all in all, not too bad. ๐Ÿ˜…

Black Friday

As mentioned above, we were all up at around 4:00am. Black Friday in Sebastian is very chill… no lines, no stress, pretty relaxed employees too. Sometimes they even give out free hot chocolate and things like that. We went to Walmart, to Best Buy, to Petsmart, where I got a few presents for the cats…

…then to breakfast (McDonald’s) and to Home Depot. We then went to a few furniture stores, and by this point, while I’d fully sobered up from the night prior, everyone was starting to feel sleepy, myself included. Christopher passed out in one of the stores:

Ultimately a couch was purchased, and we went back to the house for a pizza lunch and nap. Later that day, a TV was purchased too, and a new Switch. Then we went to Makoto’s for dinner, a long-awaited highlight of this trip.

Once everything was set up, we played Pictionary and Mario Kart (well… I played Pictionary… by the time Mario Kart was underway I was passed out on the floor. I didn’t even make it fully through my second Mojito this time), but it’s okay, Grover can finish it for me…

Saturday

Saturday was a little more relaxed. Christopher and I cuddled for a while before I got up, and then I went to get bread so my mom in law could make French toast. We had a nice relaxing breakfast. At some point we went out one more time, and my mom in law got me the new walking shoes I so desperately needed. Also, Grandma and I went to Michaels, and I got Mandalorian advent calendars for me and my sis in law. Here’s mine on the wall:

We left around four in the afternoon, and got home a little past six. After that, the three of us still hung out a few hours, had dinner, and watched Cowboy Bebop. Then we dropped our friend off and Thanksgiving weekend was truly over, since I’ll be spending all of tomorrow unpacking and catching up on chores.

On the drive back, I completed Saint Germain’s story in Wintertide Miracles.

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

I don’t know why, but I didn’t like it so much. He was all whiny and full of feelings the entire route. I don’t mind that with other LIs, and he’s certainly that way at times in the original game too, but I always enjoyed how he could be a little scary, even playfully during Future Blessings, and you never really knew what he was thinking. I don’t know, I found him a bit “much”. Regardless, here’s a couple of screenshots of parts I liked:

Finis is always fun, though. I think he will end up being the best part of the fandisc for me.

Something I forgot to share in my “before leaving” post is this Sesame Street Christmas Treasury I got. I meant to read it during the trip, just as I meant to play more of Wintertide Miracles, but in the end I was just too entertained enjoying my time with family.

This book is lovely, with illustrations from multiple eras. The vintage ones are my favorites.

I guess I’ll wrap it up here, tomorrow and Monday are going to be really busy for me. Plus, I’ll be releasing a new YCH, so please look forward to that. Talk to you all later!

Pre-Thanksgiving Wrap-Up ๐Ÿฆƒ

Hi hi, everyone! Before I leave for the Thanksgiving holiday, itโ€™s time to do a big olโ€™ wrap-up of the last week or so. Itโ€™s been busy!

I wanted to share the collectorโ€™s edition goodies of my copy of Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~. I didnโ€™t get to look at those until after the Tampa trip, even though thatโ€™s when I started playing the game.

The collectorโ€™s edition came with several pins and a keychain:

Over the last day or so I already played one of the stories. Of course, I started with Van. As always, it was adorable, especially his interactions with Delly. You can read my impressions on that playthrough in my previous post.

Going back to last week (last Thursday to be precise) here is a cute squirrel I came upon during my morning walk:

After my walk, I had my coffee with Bowser Jrโ€ฆ

It was actually a pretty eventful day, but not much about it to share here. I did take a photo of another snack of that day, though. ๐Ÿ˜…

Thatโ€™s all Iโ€™ve got for Thursday, I got basically nothing done but went to bed very happy. ๐Ÿฅฐ

This photo is from Friday. I was running around trying to get chores done, and Rosie decided to unmake my bed. ๐Ÿ˜’ She was still hiding under there. This has since become a new habit.

Later that day, I continued working on a Christmas wallpaper for Christopher, which youโ€™ve likely already seen me post, along with a matching icon:

After that, I went on yet another walk. I went to Target too, to pick up these two things. A Yoshi plushie and a Mario Kart Daisy figure:

I put Daisy in my studio. I wanted a Yoshi plushie because Yoshi is Christopherโ€™s pick in all the Mario games and it reminds me of him.

On Friday and Saturday I continued and mostly finished decorating the house for Christmas. Grover helped!

Reading Christmas stories with my morning coffee as the house starts to get festive around me is a lovely feelingโ€ฆ

Saturday was wonderful. I finished decorating the tree, though I still had some minor details left to do around the house. Our friend came to spend time with us, we played Mario Kart and Mario Party. He won Mario Party but the three of us won Mario Kart rounds.

I tend to do poorly at many mini-games but I love this one.

We also watched Cowboy Bebop (the new Netflix show). I know it’s not perfect and if I’d just watched the anime I’d probably hate it but, it’s been quite a while so I’m enjoying this new version a lot. I’ll probably revisit the anime afterwards.

It was a nice surprise that my problem with Mario Kart really was the Wii U controller. Playing on the Switch with a full controller, I even managed first place once, a rarity for me! And I came in second or third other times.

We went to Nami Sushi for dinner:

It was one in a string of fun, happy, comforting Saturdays recently, and I made even more memories that I’ll treasure.

On Sunday I completed the decorating for good. The tree looks very festive!

Here is Grandpaโ€™s corner, with the candy I can no longer sneak into his hand when Grandma isnโ€™t looking. But still, I make sure he has it.

This area is on the way to the movie/living room:

Here is the movie room with the Christmas village. I like to find different Christmasy streams to broadcast on the projector:

And here is the Christmas village in all its glory!

I got my Yoshi looking all merry, too:

I also put Christmas lights on my bunk bed. I forgot to turn on the fairy lights on this photo for extra effect, but Groverโ€™s outfit still makes it all look extra Christmasy:

Outside, other than the wreath, I put up a new flag:

On Monday I did all of my packing for Thanksgiving and then Christopher dropped me off at my momโ€™s. Instead of dinner, we had a little โ€œpicadaโ€ and margaritas. It was delicious! But the alcohol made me very sleepy and I went to bed early. ๐Ÿ˜ด

The next morning I got to work on two commission slots for Nero and Bluu. Grover kept me company. I really love this toy, Iโ€™ve slept holding it tight almost every night since our Tampa trip. ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ’•

When my mom got home from work we went to the Youth Fair. The weather was amazing! Sunny, but cool. We started by sharing an arepa and walking around. Then we had corn with parmesan, garlic, butter and mayo:

Here are some random pretty photos I took around the fair:

A Christmas tree! The fair normally happens in April. It didnโ€™t happen last year. Christmas stuff isnโ€™t the norm, but it was nice to see.

Have one more photo of it because I couldnโ€™t decide which one to use:

We rode a two story carousel. It was so pretty!

I was able to get photos of me and my mom. We were really happy.

I got a little video while I was riding:

At the end of the night, we had freshly squeezed lemonade and pinchos. The alligator in the photo is one my mom won for me in a crane machine!

Hereโ€™s one last photo I took of my mom, her hair was a little messy because it was so windy:

We had a really good time. By the time we went home we really were completely beat.

And that brings us to today –Wednesday! I had a lot of prep to do still once Christopher picked me up and we got home. I took care of the snails, the cats, more packing, and I made two banana walnut loaves for Thanksgiving. Christopher made me mac ‘n cheese and fried eggs for dinner, a very Little-feeling meal! ๐Ÿ˜

That’s it from me… I will be gone until Saturday. Hope you all have a very, very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy ๐ŸŽ€โœจ

Yesterday was a really special day. And some things, you know, they aren’t even for this blog. They are just for me to keep in my heart. It was that kind of day.

I can share that I feel very loved right now, and that there were times yesterday that I felt so Little, I thought I could literally die. I felt happier than I ever thought was possible, and now I have such a sense of peace, a calm, as I haven’t felt in some time.

Everything that is making me happy, combined with things to look forward to very soon, and the deliciously refreshing change to cooler weather, is making for some truly unforgettable days. I’m really happy that I get to exist in this world with the people that are part of my life. More than ever, I feel like I don’t need for my life to have some transcendent meaning, or to have been crafted by an omnipotent creator, or to have a reason to exist at all. I’m just happy to exist and to be experiencing life, with all of its ups and downs. It is a treasure.

Yesterday Christopher took me to I โค Mac & Cheese for lunch. I’d really been craving it, so it was a huge treat!

Then we met up with our good friend at our house and spent the entire day together. We played video games, watched The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, went out for ramen, and just had a wonderful time. Christopher won, again… I’m getting a bit tired of Yoshi’s smug-ass face:

But it was a ton of fun, of course. Now I’m off to exercise. Today we have to do a little shopping and pick up a server. I’m almost done with my chores too. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

Rainy Friday โ˜”๐ŸŒˆ

Today it rained all day! But I still had my morning walk. And it really was absolutely pouring, it had been all night, so the puddles were unbelievable. Water was high on like entire half blocks at times, coming well above my ankles:

But I had a big umbrella and my goat-patterned boots, so even though it never stopped raining I did my full walk. I was a little more tired than usual by the end, the umbrella is heavy and some areas were too flooded so I had to take longer ways, but I’m glad I did it anyway.

In the evening Christopher and I had some quality time together, we watched TV, had dinner, and played video games again!

My little snack:

I’m really, really enjoying playing Mario Party with Christopher, even though he wins so often…

Oh well, at least I came in second place.

I’m very busy, and will be this entire week, but I am excited, especially about next weekend, and about Jurassic World Evolution 2 releasing!! I have to make sure I get all my work done in time to have fun. I have to complete the gift reference sheet for Tibby, the Christmas arts for my family (3 pieces) and, actually, if that’s all I manage next week I will be very pleased, as it’s a lot of work. Here’s hoping!

Summary Of The Last Few Days ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿž

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re having a happy Thursday morning. I decided to let a few days accumulate into a single post, since, well, I haven’t had much interesting stuff to share recently.

Christopher and I have been spending more time together in the evenings, and it has been lovely. Elliot keeps us company. He always comes to the couch when Christopher gets home. Unlike our other cats, Elliot tends to spend his entire day out on the porch and doesn’t visit me much, but he always comes in when Christopher gets home. I think he misses him.

We began our evening by playing Mario Party Superstars:

Christopher won, of course…

After video games, we watched Lamb. It was really freaking weird. The weirdness is not a problem, it’s great, but I felt like it built up a lot for no real payoff. It just wasn’t very scary either.

On Tuesday, my copy of Cupid Parasite arrived! Still a while until I get to this one. I’ll be playing my next otome the weekend after this one –the final fandisc of Code: Realize.

We will be taking a trip to a place that will be all decked out for Christmas, so it’s a perfect time to finally play Wintertide Miracles, especially with such a long car ride.

This is completely random, but I’ve been fooling around with wigs, and liked how this photo came out. ๐Ÿ˜

In the evening we watched the latest Paranormal Activity movie. It was okay. I had a little snack:

Yesterday I went on my walk, and to shop for groceries. I caught a couple of shots of this pretty butterfly on the way:

There were also several ducks foraging for food, and I got a photo and some video:

When Christopher got home, I had the smell of coffee and banana nut bread in the air. ๐Ÿ˜Š It was my first time making it and it turned out decently good:

Here is Cerise ready to try some:

Afterwards I made panko-crusted tilapia for dinner. It was pretty good.

Anyway as you can see I don’t have much interesting stuff to tell even when putting a bunch of days together. Right now, I am busy working on Christmas art for family. After that, I will resume commissions. I am also really, REALLY pumped for our upcoming trip. I pretty much cannot think about anything else…

Today I have to do my chores early, so I’ll wrap this up here. Enjoy your day, everyone!

Happy Halloween! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿฆ‡

CW: I’ve realized I’m discussing eating and weight loss a fair bit in this post in a casual manner, so I just wanted to give a heads-up about that right here in case you’d rather skip this post. ๐Ÿ’•

Happy Halloween, everyone! Yesterday was so much fun. I had very precious time with friends, and time with family. A lot of my stress and blues has melted away. This had affected my appetite, and my calorie count has been really too low these past couple of days, so I hope now that I feel better, today I can eat more normally (you know how it is, when you don’t eat for a long time it’s like your stomach kinda closes up? I really wanted to eat, but it was hard.)

We went to a boring old-people flea market (but it brought back memories of pre-Covid times), to Best Buy, and then to PhแปŸ Bar again. I was a little upset that I couldn’t eat because I really like that restaurant, but just being there with people I love was enough.

I really liked my outfit for yesterday:

It has sort of bunny ears in the back:

My mom in law said that it’s kind of a waste to wear a baggy outfit like this when I’ve gotten so slim, but to be honest, I still really like to wear baggy clothes even if I get very thin. Heck, even more so depending on the situation. Baggy clothes just make me feel small, and the more I can lose myself in them the “Littler” I feel.

And I really did feel so Little yesterday at times. There’s a very perfect, hard to get to “sweet spot” between my innocent Littlespace and my “saucier” older headspace that is rarely pushed so intensely in a small period of time. It leaves me on such a high, it is dizzying. It could never get old.

In the evening, I made empanadas, my mom in law made jalapeรฑo poppers, and we played video games. We played the newest Mario Party release (Mario Party Superstars) and an old Wario game for the Wii U. Both were such an absolute blast, and I actually won once!

I always pick Daisy, but I wish Bowser Jr. was an option because he’s so cute. ๐Ÿฅบ I’m always so happy when he shows up.

Anyway today Christopher and I are going to spend lots of time together and watch horror movies and stuff so I’m gonna get all my chores out of the way early and prepare some cinnamon rolls so he wakes up with the smell. ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ’•

Oh yeah and I hope to get all the commissions that are due today, posted today, but it may be tomorrow. Probably today though. Enjoy your day, everyone!
