Easter 2022

After several hectic weeks at work, I happily slept in on Friday and eased into the day. Following that, I got a lot of decluttering done, some knitting, rehomed my books in a reorganized office space, repotted all my plants, wrote a ritual for the full moon, watched several episodes of Supergirl, paid a parking ticket, and made a lovely dinner of top sirloin with rapini and seasoned creamer potatoes. 

Saturday was a mix of decluttering, chores, and was capped off with a little full moon ritual and some homemade lemon wine a friend gifted me. 

Sunday was a very chill day. I did a lot of relaxing. I gamed and watched more Supergirl. I'm now close to finished Season 6. I also tried to do my drawing homework, but the assignment is a special kind of collage using tape to transfer an image and my tape isn't doing what it's supposed to, so I'm stuck there.

Today, I was an extra in Lee Demarbre's Enter the Drag Dragon. This was a returning role. In the summer, I was an extra in a fight scene with two of my dear friends. Today's scene was the final scene of the movie. Sadly, I went alone as my friends were recovering from Covid and just needed a day or so to meet the number of days after feeling well to ensure everyone would be safe around them. As I moved around the theatre a bit, I don't know where I'll be in the end, but I can't wait to see it!

My takeaway from the filming today was that drones are actually rather creepy. The sound they make is an odd frequency that is almost like a bee hive. Couple that with how easily they could be used to spy on someone and I felt creeped out by it. They're a wonderful tool for filming though.

But today actually began with me writing novel notes out at 5:15 A.M. because my brain decided it finally knew how to add a particular character arc. Now, I just need to find the exact place to do it.

I'm currently waiting on one more piece to finish reorganizing my office. It's supposed to arrive on Wednesday, but Canada Post is saying it might be late. I'm quite frustrated by the shipping options here as my last package went to the wrong building and I got lucky that furniture legs aren't something most people want to keep. I got extra lucky because it was a kind Asian man who walked my package over to my building rather than sending it back. So it did go awry, but turned out OK in the end.

I'm hoping the items I'm waiting on now don't get too delayed. Several of them form part of a goth outfit for an event at month's end. And there are much larger and taller furniture legs in there for the last piece of my office reorg.

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my


I've gotten my season tickets for the inaugural season of the Professional Women's Hockey League. I had put my deposit down as soon as it was open. Am I a hockey superfan? No. I enjoy hockey. I started watching it quite a lot during my divorce. I also used to practice my slapshot against the foundation of our house when I was an angst-filled teen. I care about women in sport having amazing opportunities like this. Anyway, some people in the comments section on the posts are truly something. The league posted the schedule, which was more of a calendar without time blocks listed. They happened to post that on the day that priority purchasing was opened for the season tickets.  So then there are a bunch of people who didn't put deposits down that were complaining they can't buy tickets yet. Makes total sense 😒 And then there were a bunch of other people complaining that nothing has been announced on the streaming and televisation of the games. Some were even suggesting th
