The list of things I’d like to get done today is painfully long. Topmost on said list is cleaning out the fridge to make room for the food I shall be preparing for tomorrow’s day of face stuffing. I also need to get the kitchen ready and do any prep work I can to make things easier on myself. The turkey is already cooked, or smoked really, as is the pie (baked, not smoked), so all I really need to put together tomorrow is green bean casserole (from scratch, beans cooked today), scalloped potatoes, and stuffing. I didn’t really want to do all this cooking, but that’s just the way things worked out. Such is life.
Also on today’s list is continuing to sort through my art supplies to weed out pens and whatnot that no longer work. Whatever is left will likely get donated to the local art supply thrift store, because aside from pencils, the only pens I ever need in my life are Pigma Microns. I love them so much! Oh, and a few Sharpies, black only. In fact, just black ink everything. I never use the colored inks, and it’s a waste for me to buy them.
Today’s stretch goal is to keep trying to sort out how to easily create and maintain a weekly newsletter. This shouldn’t be as hard as it has been, but not having an actual computer has made it somewhat more difficult. Ok, a LOT more difficult, especially the “making it cute and pretty” part. That and the fact I’ve found no service to use which I trust with my and my friends’ data. I’ve got a couple options to consider, and I’d like to do that today.
Also on the list is tying the blog into the Fediverse, so folks on Mastodon and its offshoots can just follow the blog (if they want) instead of following my personal account. I’d thought I might post links to my blog posts over there, but eh, I don’t think I’ll be doing a lot of posting on my account. There are a number of things in the Fediverse that just rub me the wrong way. Perhaps at some point I’ll snap and make a post about these things, but today is not that day.
So … quite the busy day I have planned. The weather is still gloomy and moist, though it isn’t actively raining today. Yet. This is naturally leading to a complete and total lack of motivation to do anything at all but sit in my recliner playing video games or watching YouTube (while cuddling with cats, of course). Since I’m currently caffeinated, I better hop up and get the fridge organizing done. Of all the tasks on today’s list, it’s actually the most important. There’s simply no room to put large containers of food, and there really needs to be. All the cooking in the world does me no good, if I can’t cram the stuff into the fridge for later consuming!
I’ve been making room in the fridge too. It’s that day. Ugh.
Pigma Microns: I have a small handful of them. They are wunderpens, the DrawBot has told me so. Even the 0.004mm will never give up. I thought it would last half a drawing, but three hours later… …like the Energizer Bunny!
Happy Thanksgiving, my fav American Holiday! Gratitude and large dead bird meat, who could ask for more? It’s not in the lexicon down here, though they still ‘celebrate’ Guy Fox’s death some centuries ago. We do have Black Friday! We just don’t know why… Ask any Kiwi in the street and they are likely to tell you it came to us from the Chinese (with no sense of irony at all).
I finally got WordPress to werk. It’s an ongoing project…
