yarning
roses in progressstatue of liberty amigurumiThe garland is about 40 inches (1m) long, with 5 segments. I'm putting 4 roses on each segment, so that's 20 flowers. I've got ten made and ten to go, though I don't think I have enough of the variegated lavender yarn for the last one. Will have to improvise something. Then I can get it in the mail to Grandma.

Then today's newscycle pissed me off enough that I posted a WIP shot of my epic project, my 15" Statue of Liberty. I'm still awaiting lightweight yarn so I can make her robes that actually drape. Also a superhero cape.

In sum, yarning is coping.

am working on Vividcon plans. we just spent 4 days trying to trap an injured feral cat on our property (we were successful. or rather all the people who did the work were. I was cheerleading and getting sunburned) so we've fallen waaaaay behind.  and today we are off to see a specialist that we've been trying to see for 10 months (he travels doing medical research). and [personal profile] xlorp is in the midst of emergency coverage for 2 co-workers who are out on family leave/vacation. and....

I went to see Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets today. Cut for negativity more than spoilers. )

For the Forever Knight fans: A friend of mine recently applied for Canadian citizenship, and a few weeks later received an email informing him that the processing of his application has now begun and also providing him with a link to the website where he can download the citizenship test study guide in either print or audio format. Furthermore, the email continued, the audio version is narrated by a group of famous Canadians. My friend didn't recognize any of the names, but I recognized a couple, including one that I thought might be of mild interest to handful of you: Geraint Wyn Davies. If any of you would like to listen to Nick Knight discuss the regions of Canada, you can do so here.

I was reading some advice today on how to improve ease of writing. The first step the site recommended is to write first thing in the morning, before doing anything else, or at least before reading anything else. It apparently doesn't matter what you write as long as you write something; recounting the previous night's dreams or discussing in detail how much you hate the activity are both perfectly valid options. I think I might try it for a bit and see what happens, if I can just bring myself to wake up a little earlier.

I have another week of vacation coming up soon. I should start putting together a list of the things I'd like to accomplish. Bake, definitely; maybe visit the bank; maybe go to the beach. That's a start.

:D :D

People in the past who used hot water bottles or bedwarmers or such things?

Are clearly people who did not let their cats sleep in the bed with them.

Two furry bodies smooshed up against my ribs and another one down by my feet? TOASTY WARM MUSYC. XD

(And Musyc-snoring, Sam-snoring, and Gidget-snoring all at once? I bet that was a heck of a symphony.)

Just saw my first episode of Teen Wolf and that was one on my favourite scenes.

I'm going to stay FAR away from the fandom though. Taking a quick peek, there is just too much fighting and negativity. Fandom is my happy place

Guess who just got a letter saying there her mortgage is completely paid off!!!??? They used part of my remaining escrow to pay it off and are sending me the remainder in a check.

I bought the house in '91, refinanced to a lower interest rate in '02, and now it's done. It's mine, free and clear. It's an amazing feeling.
