Work From Home Blog: Day 18

I miss small talk. 

I didn't realize this until Monday, Tuesday, when people were walking, running, jogging by and I would be far more chatty than I normally am with strangers-walking. And then picking up pizza last night (we have finally run out of things that Must Be Cooked in our fridge), and I wanted to talk talk talk.

Malina and the Border Banners, Chapter 8 (A Story for B)

She opened one more door to find one more, albeit short, hallway; Malina very nearly screamed.  Her feet WERE screaming.

Malina's story continues!

It's time to address the cubic elephant in the room:


I have been playing a lot of Minecraft.

Work From Home Blog: Day 16

 If you know me in person - which few people reading this do - you know that I rarely wear make-up.  In the last decade, I think I've had my makeup done for two weddings and once done something for a LARP.

Work From Home Blog: Day 15

 What I noticed most this morning was "how is this the beginning of my 4th week of work from home?  Seriously? I've been doing this for nearly a month?"

Well, okay, 3 weeks minus a day down does not make for a whole month, but you get the point.  It all sort of blurs together.

This boy was sitting in the gift bag, but came out for his photo as soon as I pointed a camera in his direction.

I cheered as what was clearly a genie emerged from the ring my great-aunt had left me.

"What wishes would you have me grant?"

"I wish for everyone to be cured and an effective vaccine to be available if needed!"

"That's a little beyond me. You'd need Lamp or higher."

"Oh. What CAN you grant in this situation then?"

"Every conference call will have multiple pet visits and your groceries will always replenish?"

"That would be nice."

Today’s run. I realized there are several pine trees with wooden props hanging out in people’s gardens (at least I think they’re pines)

Malina and the Border Banners, Chapter 7 (A Story for B)

Malina had seen stranger things, but then again, she was being followed around an abandoned castle named for her ancestor by a talking cat.

Work From Home Blog: Day 12

Sitting through faculty meetings on Zoom, where I don’t have to watch what my face is doing and most of the time they’re not aware I’m there — it’s very, ah, educational.

Since people are sharing games they've made to pass the time with, here's mine!

Flower Magic is a relaxing pixel game where you plant flowers so they cross-pollinate to find new combinations and maybe special magical flowers.

Herbal Spice Problem is a tongue-in-cheek little puzzle game where you explore an alien landscape for plants to hopefully make a cup of tea without poisoning yourself.

And The Witch's Cottage is a twine escape room game about potions.

Good morning fedifolk and tootfriends!

Today I wish you a moment to relax ✨

Grocery Bags! (an Alter-Sprig blog post)

While I was looking up how to, and then proceeding with, washing my reusable shopping bags, or at least the portion of them currently in circulation (they accumulate, like single socks, or shopping trolleys at the bottom of a steep hill...), my husband kindly suggested that the reasonable thing to do would be to make some.

The boy bowed to the tiger and the old woman.
"Excuse me, are you the witch and her familiar?"
"I am the witch," the tiger said.
"I heard you right wrongs?"
"No," said the familiar, "we help those we choose to help."
The boy thought. "Is that different?"
"Not to us."

Work From Home Blog: Day 11

So it turns out that I was wrong (a  little) about clothes. 

Also, I bought myself a new pair of pajama pants!  They are soft and super long and new, which is nice.

I made a free connect-the-dots printable PDF! Grab it here - you can even colour it afterwards! :D

Enjoy! <3

The Bellamy, Chapter 12

Veronika trundled her little cart out of Reprography and into the rows and rows of shelving and boxes.

Out of curiosity, she peeked in one: it held a very neatly-folded pile of linen and a corroded silverish knife with a handle that looked made of carved antler.
