Today, I wrote and illustrated a "Doctor Who Love Haiku" that I intend to submit to my college's literary magazine upon my return. I also drew up another of my Fail Comics, which are essentially chibi stick-figure parodies of my things pertaining to my nerdiness. I've also helped take care of event-related business with a group I'm part of on Gaia Online, and offered my wisdom to a friend who's having a problem with her boyfriend.

More of what I did yesterday, but didn't get online.
We taught the young'ns how to play Monopoly ( the proper board game version ), and promptly got thrashed by them Undecided  Undecided

But it was fun!

I bought a sewing machine- an old Singer, very strong, complete with original manuals, a local friend who has similar has checked it over and recommended suppliers for materials, thread etc.

I've been wanting to take up model engineering, but a mate who has a small but fully equipped workshop is emigrating, so I'm losing the use of his facilities.....sewing seems a practical and interesting alternative, some thing that can be done at home.

Hey, that's great, Phania. What software did you use?

I've been up to a little animation lately myself, of the 3-dimensional variety. Though like most of my creativeness, it has not been put on the net. Trying to apply my abilities to a new program.

Thanks, Bezier  Smiley
It's a simple puppet-tool animation in Adobe After Effects. It was homework, I swear!

Finished off the dyeing process for a ridiculous amount of fabric... for the second time, it better be dark enough, because I'm not doing it again!

Thanks, Cad Gear. I'm planning on making further equally if not more stupid dance animations when I have the time  Cheesy

I did some science involving applying practical concepts in one field and theoretical concepts in another to a design problem in a third.

Then I caught some pokemons, gave them silly names, and made them fight each other for my amusement.

Later, I think I will cook something.

I moved into college today! Impressive, considering that I still had a bit of packing to do and got up at 9:30 after very little sleep... and have been going until now.

Well, yesterday I started on two leather sporrans and one pair of sheepskin insoles but that`s just work. For fun, I read part of one of the three books I have ongoing...I never get enough time to read! And made two jars of lemon curd and two of lime curd. Smiley

two of lime curd. Smiley

I have never heard of lime curd, is it nice?

I started a new blog today after the old one became pretty stagnant and updating it seemed like a chore.

Lime curd is lovely, a bit sharper than the lemon or orange curd. Smiley
Will soon be making bramble jam and rowanberry jelly, it`s that time of year again. Smiley

Having handed my notice in a few weeks ago (yippee!) I'm now working out my last week and realising just how much crap physically and on the computer I have to sort out while doing actual work at the same time  Undecided


(and of course reading and posting on here is helping that... yes m'm honest)

I cleaned my table of oddities.  A collection of random bits that land on my side of the bedroom, on this specific table.  So, I didn't just clean it off, I had to figure out where (if anywhere) that stuff goes.  Then I cleared all of my bookshelves, cleaned them and replaced the books (cleaned) back in a much more organized fashion.  Found some things I thought I'd lost and books I really should return to their owners!

After sending stuff in and racing to meet deadlines, I did a whole lot of nothing at work. Mostly just sat at my desk and stared out the window. Was not in the mood to do anything.

I worked on prettying up my laptop..decided to use leather, bookbinding leather, so the top and bottom are covered in it and I added some old leather straps to the top. (the glue on these is drying now under a heavy book Smiley ) and hope to find some brass corners for the top lid.
I also tested out, for the first time, my new air rifle. It`s just a peedie thing but powerful enough to hit the bunnies that are eating my vegetables from thirty to forty yards away. I hit the tin can from thirty yards first time. Smiley
I cleaned out and lit the fire in the livingroom...we burn peat here...as it doesn`t feel like August, we`ve had continual rain for the past three months and it feels more like autumn. Sad
But a nice cosy fire makes it bearable.

I worked on some finishing touches to hubby's pants, got sidetracked and made myself a vest from a super simple pattern, painted a garage wall, took and picked up one child from school, got the other child on and off the bus and now I'm cooking dinner..I'm exhausted!
