2023 - Week 31


Work Life: My document is indeed ready for publishing.

Mood: Relieved. New admin things that have lots of steps are hard for me to learn and complete. I survived though!

Home Life: I did a bunch of work on the July playlist for the next edition of my newsletter. I also got back to my Fairy Cross-Stitch project. If you want to see how that is going or to hear the playlist, please sign up for my monthly newsletter.


Work Life: We had a very productive meeting on issues we had last year and great ideas on how to improve the process. Of course, now that I'm in a different role, it doesn't help me a ton, but at least things are improving.

Mood: My mood isn't the best today. I don't really want to do anything, but I don't want to let other people down.

Home Life: It helped to go out and see my goth friends even though I was wanting to stay home.


Work Life: It was a pretty typical Wednesday. Most things are waiting for other people.

Mood: Frustrated and sad. I'm still stuck trying to find a way to get medicated for my ADHD. Also feeling disappointed that a project didn't work out, but other things made me feel better.

Home Life: I spent the evening catching up on chores and trying to figure out a path forward. I got an email that gave me some hope. A skirt I altered didn't work out, so it's back to the drawing board on that.


Work Life: This week has been too long already.

Mood: A mix of excited and worried. We're supposed to have yet another bad storm, but I'm also going to see a friend perform.

Home Life: After letting the weather calm down a bit, I went to see my friend Dani perform at Live on Elgin! It was a fantastic performance and I'm so glad she has got her voice back after having struggled for a bit with Covid. When she sings Invader, I feel it in my soul and it was a particularly good performance. It was so nice seeing Internet friends in person too. I couldn't stop smiling after the show.


Work Life: It was a fairly slow day at work since a lot of people took the long weekend off. I got my tender set up, so I can easily publish it when I'm back from my upcoming vacation.

Mood: Tired, but happy.

Home Life: I made progress on my castle in Minecraft. Oh boy has that had a rough start. For some reason, I decided it would be a cool thing to build a castle on a hill. The thing is that there isn't actually a hill, so I've been building it in the air and adding the hill as I go. I attempted to start my music station project, but I couldn't find my saw box to be able to cut the 2x4 in half. Instead, while looking, I found my bag of wayward socks and the bottoms to my new bathing suit. I had been looking for those about a month or two ago. Hopefully it doesn't take me that long to find my saw box. I want to get my music stuff in order, so I can practice more.


I had a productive Saturday in Minecraft and at home. I made a lot of progress on my castle. My sawbox was in my closet, so I was able to do the cuts for my music station. I really hope the project works out. It'll make a huge difference in my home and my practice. I even found my little book project and started it. It's a little wooden book that will sit on a shelf I will be returning from vacation with in a couple of weeks. The little book has a compartment that I will be storing some items in that currently clutter my desk. I had originally thought I would put it in my bathroom, so I was going to paint it gray or white, but now that it's for stream, it's a bright lavender. After the base coat is done, I will be adding leaves, mushrooms, and butterflies to it. 


Sunday began with some Procreate until my pen decided it could not function without more charge. I was a tad annoyed about this as it was too early to work on noisier projects and I really wanted to finish up my next newsletter. I eventually made a decent amount of progress on my drawing for it. I did get to my other project, but it wasn't working out, so I felt that a break was in order. I watched The Witcher Season 3 with Dino friends and did some cross-stitching.

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

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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
