Busy Days! ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ ๐Ÿ’ฆ

These past couple of days were at times boring, but extremely fruitful. I first spent basically a full day of adjusting apps, settings, changing my desktop layouts on two computers, removing distractions from them, which included some minor registry fiddling, deleted some files/cleaned stuff up, in particular my desktop, adjusted my internet blocks a little bit more (which had been still on but in a sort of soft-mode; starting tomorrow itโ€™s all on again.) I also spent a while hunting for references for the next LL design. Basically, a big day of prep for the week.

I also, however, got to read a bit: the latest volume of Beastars, and my antique copy of La Condesa De Sรฉgurโ€™s โ€œLos Niรฑos Buenosโ€, a favorite from my childhood (already ancient when I read it as a child!) I found a Spanish copy which certainly brings a lot of good memories.

Today all of that prep paid off. I got my chores done in time, worked on commissions, my books, personal art, even got to read for a while. It was an extremely satisfactory day!

I also went for a walk to get groceries for tomorrowโ€™s dinner and to Hobby Lobby where I scored a few nice goodies:

A little mesh container that will serve as a wonderful emergency snail hold, some colorful wood pieces to decorate my walls, a pecan log (something Iโ€™ve never tried) and a squishy pen in some of my favorite colors. I also got a little hat, unsure of who would wear it. In the end, it was Ramen Noodle who got to keep it:

Iโ€™d say he looks quite dapper, donโ€™t you?

After I decorated a little I wanted to take a photo of my computer area with its new wallpapers because itโ€™s making me so happy:

Everything around me is so colorful and it really fills me with joy.

Anyway thatโ€™s all for now I guess, I know Iโ€™ve been very quiet on Discord and Iโ€™m super sorry. Iโ€™m just working a LOT on art. Since I know some stuff is still delayed. I am grateful to everyone for waiting patiently. ๐Ÿ’•

A Nice Friday Evening ๐Ÿ˜Š

Today, with all my chores done, I had plans to sit with my husband watching TV, drinking coffee and working in my iPad. Maybe play a game together before bed. I even brought Fish โ€˜N Chips down with me:

But no sooner had I opened my coffee than our good friend Kris called us to invite us out to dinner! We went to Shooters, a lovely seafood place Iโ€™d never been to before. Actually one of my favorite outings in many months. Kris even offered to get me a drink, so I got a nice photo of Ramen Noodle with a mojito:

It was a really wonderful ending to my day, and Iโ€™m hoping for a really good day tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful night!

A Whole Bunch โ€˜O Nothinโ€™ ๐Ÿฅฑ

I got a cute breakfast photo this morning. My bit of dry cereal looked like ice cream with the Pocky sticks and the little waffle dish.

Life feels pretty dumb lately. All days blur into each other. I want to look forward to holidays, especially Halloween and fall days, but when nothing changes, even that seems pointless.

We got a new Roomba clone, a thing called RoboRock. Weโ€™ve been way too excited about it, which is probably a testament to how dull life has become.

I ordered Anniversary Dreamer a few days ago, but I just realized that some bears from the 2nd quarter havenโ€™t made it to the USA (due to COVID) so maybe Iโ€™ll cancel him and get Roulade… I donโ€™t know… anyway at least Iโ€™m looking forward to a bear.

Iโ€™ll be making a snail update sometime soon. So far five snails have died. Rest In Peace little guys, I really tried. But I havenโ€™t given up. And I have many healthy snails. Iโ€™ll go into more detail in another post.

Hope you all enjoy your almost-weekend!
