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.

Party Night! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽฎ๐ŸŒˆ

Today I had a day/evening all to myself, so I kinda partied a little bit! ๐Ÿ˜ To begin with, I got myself all set up in the movie room, with Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ on the projector:

With all of the Christmas decorations, especially the Christmas village, it really added to the wintertide atmosphere of the game.

I brought Grover and Bowser Jr. to keep me company so I wasn’t as lonely:

And I had a little feast set out all for myself:

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

I decided to play Lupin’s First Christmas scenario tonight. While Lupin isn’t my favorite LI, I really enjoyed his scenario. It was very cute, and the CGs were beyond beautiful. Here are some of my favorites.

As I play more and more scenarios, little brother Finis continues to be the absolute highlight. I just love him. I love his interactions with everyone. Moments like these are pure gold:

I decided to tackle Impey’s route next. I’m not sure why I did Lupin before Impey, since Impey is my 3rd favorite LI in Code: Realize, but even that has changed now. I wasn’t as crazy about Saint Germain in this fandisc, and I realized during this scenario that I like Impey even more than I remembered.

Even on my Guardian of Rebirth and Future Blessings playthroughs, I found Impey very, and I mean very reminiscent of someone I love, even more so in Wintertide Miracles, so I’m enjoying playing his scenario a lot. It’s been enough to bump up Impey to my second favorite, or perhaps even tie him with Van Helsing. Sorry, Van. ๐Ÿ˜’

I have not, on the whole, been a big fan of the “from the LI’s perspective” stuff in Wintertide Miracles. In general I am not a fan of being in the LI’s POV at all. But Impey is the exception: even more than the other LIs, what goes through his heart and mind is so different from what his goofy, never-serious, over-the-top demeanor shows, that the contrast in seeing his thoughts is irresistible, as are moments like these, since he so rarely makes these facial expressions…

For the same reason, I love his seriousness in the scenes where he is discussing engineering stuff with Nemo, and all other nonsense is out of his mind, even the MC temporarily, even though he’s thinking about her the rest of the time. Impey has a passion that none of the other characters has to the same extent, IMO, all making a wonderful contrast with his everyday goofy demeanor. Even more so, the banter between him and Lupin is so… SO familiar to me… ๐Ÿ˜… I find it so utterly endearing. It’s almost to a T exactly like that between my husband and our dear friend, uncannily so, even.

I’m still taking my time with Impey’s scenario, and this fandisc in general, but it also happened to contain my favorite Finis moment yet. The MC forces poor tsundere Finis to tell her that he loves her, and incredibly, he does say it (wow!):

…only for the MC to confirm it doesn’t feel quite the same when her little brother says it, as opposed to when Impey does (WOW). I forgot to screencap that, but Finis’ pure rage and embarrassment at his sister’s let-down reaction to him voicing his feelings with so much difficulty is the funniest thing I’ve seen in any Code: Realize game yet, I actually laughed out loud. ๐Ÿคฃ

Bonus Finis moment that I loved:

What an adorable, overprotective little shit.

That was all the playing I got done for today. It’s rare that I’m home alone at night, so it’s always kind of exciting, until I have to go to bed. I hate being all alone at night in this big house, it’s a bit scary, I suppose… at least I had both Kotoko and Rosie with me. Rosie cuddled right on the pillow:

Tomorrow I’m going to work some more on commissions. I hope everyone has had a great start to their week!

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!

Back From Tampa! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Not unlike last Saturday, this weekend was full of memories and things that are better suited to keep in my own heart than to blog about. They’re too special. At the same time, I was so overwhelmed with happiness and having fun, and being “present”, that I took very few pictures. But I’ll share what I have.

There was not a single moment of this entire weekend that was dull or anything less than pure bliss. We left around 7:00pm, stopped by McDonald’s (my food was pretty awful but I was too giddy to care) and once we arrived in Tampa I had another chance at dinner. We went to Bahama Breeze. I had a mojito and fish tacos. I carried Bowser Jr. around for a lot of this trip:

The next morning we could truly appreciate our hotel room’s unbelievable view:

We had tons of fun at Busch Gardens. I didn’t go on any rides and thankfully wasn’t harassed very much to go on any, either. I enjoyed just looking around and being together. Sometime in the afternoon we left the park to go have lunch at a highly recommended hot dog place:

When we went back to the park, they went on a few more coaster rides, and in between I got a Grover plushie as a treat that I’d been promised if I was good. This was a relief as I’d grown quite tired of being good all day and by the time I had Grover, I could start causing problems again. ๐Ÿ˜

We had a very pleasant dinner at Outback, and then went to the hotel to rest. We were in bed pretty soon, and slept very heavily. Before we knew it, it was almost 11:00am and we’d only just woken up! Thankfully check out was at noon.

For lunch, we stopped by the same little British place that Christopher and I ate at during our five year wedding anniversary trip. It was as good as last time but it was a bummer that they didn’t have bread pudding this time. I had bangers and mash again, but I didn’t have cider since I’d just woken up.

And then, just like that, we were on our way home. I really, really didn’t want this weekend to end. It was hard to accept that it had to end, but Christopher did say that it doesn’t really end since happy things will keep happening. So I remained pretty cheerful and looked out the window with Grover.

I love Grover. I think he is the gentlest of all the Sesame Street characters. I like a lot of Sesame Street characters, but if I was to have one to hug at night, it had to be Grover. This particular toy is very special to me. I’m going to keep him forever.

Up there he’s showing off a cute snowman sugar cookie that I was surprised with just because. I love the cookie too, I can’t bear to eat it. Its scarf and earmuffs even match Grover’s fur. But I’m sure I will eat it tomorrow, since I took a picture of it to remember it by.

The ride back almost ended too soon. We were pretty cheerful throughout, Christopher was just bouncing in his seat at times playing air guitar and it was a delight to see him so happy.

At some point he took this photo of me in the back seat.

Even as I type this limited entry, I keep remembering little things from this weekend that made me feel so happy and Little –holding hands, having Christopher button up my jacket in the cold, getting Grover, and a bunch of innumerable other things that happened, and feeling overwhelmed with contentment and happiness. How do I go back to normal now? ๐Ÿ˜… I don’t feel normal at all.

Well… I’m sure I will think of something… I have art to work on, and perhaps I’ll decorate the house early. My Christmas mood is just too strong. I’m on a very high “high” right now and intend to turn it into productivity all of this week!

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!

Selfie Time! Plus Other Stuff ๐Ÿคณ

I’ll say right from the get go that this post just feels weird, because it has literally three selfies, and that’s two too many. I like to document my daily outfits so I can replicate them later. But today I put two outfits together that I loved, and also wanted to show off my new choker, so you get three selfies. It’s an unusually narcissistic post, even for me! ๐Ÿ˜…

Anyway, today I went out to pick up an order at Hot Topic, making that into my walking for the day (over 10 km in the space of just under 3 hours, I took a break in the middle). This was my outfit for the walk, and I’m actually wearing pink tights because that skirt is way too short, but it’s harder to tell because โœจ filters โœจ. They’re pretty pink IRL though.

Because this is, let’s be frank, a school uniform, I felt a little awkward wearing it, but I don’t think I’ve ever gotten as many compliments on anything I’ve worn in recent memory. Between that and the recent weight loss, my self esteem is doing kind of okay. ๐Ÿ˜โœจ

Since I’ve basically put together an extensive punk wardrobe at this point, I’ve been wanting a couple of less basic chokers. I got this one today:

I also got one that is almost identical but it’s thin leather (this one is velvet) and rather than having the spikes all around like this choker, they’re only in the front –and they’re rainbow colored! That will fit a lot of my outfits very well. Actually I could just show the damn thing:

Speaking of outfits, after I got home and showered (it was very hot… I was literally dripping with sweat) I changed into another outfit for something special that I did in the afternoon. I’m pretty happy with this one as well (but, ignore the shoes… if going out, I’d be wearing my black boots):

I really like the changes to my wardrobe. My Little self is still there, though I definitely feel like I’ve switched headspaces to an older one. And that’s okay. I still like to draw my fursona in the younger range. But as far as the IRL me, I like my current headspace a lot. It just feels good, and different. And a bit more devious. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ In my same old, dumbass way.

I made sure to greet Christopher with his afternoon coffee the moment he walked in. โ˜• I’m so happy that he hasn’t worked late these past two days! ๐Ÿ™ After my chores were done, we played a couple games of Rummikub. We each won a round!

Then it was time to make dinner. I made chicken meatballs tonight!

Ready for the oven:

I wanted to serve some of Christopher’s favorite things to make him smile, so there was avocado and mozzarella cheese too. It ended up being a bit too much food, it was all surprisingly filling.

Now I’m just wrapping up chores and getting ready for bed…

Slowly we are getting through the week. I’m hoping we can have a relaxing, happy weekend with a few fun activities. ๐Ÿ’• Goodnight, everyone.

Some Kind Of Friday

Iโ€™m not sure if today was good or bad. I guess part of the day was pretty good. I got a lot of commission progress done โ€”this is the current piece, but everything that is due this month is fully inked or half colored already:

I also did a lot of chores, and gamed a bit here and thereโ€ฆ

โ€ฆand I put together a new outfit that I was pretty happy with:

But today was also a bit lonely for me, especially in the evening. ๐Ÿ˜ž Christopher was home later than usual for a Friday. And I just kept running into little issues during the day that soured my mood. It was too humid to do my full walk. I was spacing out and had a bag of steamed rice explode in the microwave. Taking a break after working for hours, I couldnโ€™t get my Switch to play on the TV, and when I played handheld I kept dying with the same boss. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

But reallyโ€ฆ thatโ€™s all a bunch of nonsense. In reality, Iโ€™m worried about more serious things. Iโ€™m worried about someone I love, and about things I can do nothing to help or improve, as it is out of my hands. I can only offer support, with the knowledge in the back of my mind that, having been in a painfully similar mental place, there is no support I can give that can make a tangible difference. At least not beyond what I have done already. Only time can help.

Wellโ€ฆ I suppose I can also work as hard as possible, because money helps indirectly. I can also not be a nuisance, a bit harder for someone like me, but Iโ€™m trying. ๐Ÿ˜”

Really donโ€™t know what to expect from the weekend. Itโ€™s early, but Iโ€™m gonna try to get some sleep and see what it brings. It might be a good one. You never know!
