Animal Crossing, morbid
Hornsby, the cuddly rhino in an argyle sweater: I have a present for you! We're going to be the Bestest Of Friends! It's a Western-style stone I made!
Me: WTF is a "Western-style stone"?
*Places it in my yard*
Jesus goddamn Hornsby, what's with the mixed signals? Do you want to come over to listen to darkwave and be my no titty goth gf or are you planning to do a murder on me? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN
Selfie, being a bit down about distancing
Yeah, I dress up a little to go for a walk because it's something I have control over. Trying to keep it cheerful, but I miss having destinations or even being able to stop in the park. #FineFemmeFriday
Mildly cursed convenience food, regret
Saving my energy to cook an actual meal tonight (dinner is the one time when everyone in the house eats together) and I decided to try these pizza pops that J brought home because, quote: "they were on sale, and I wanted to find out what the fuck" and the fuck is that they taste eerily like a McDonalds cheeseburger without the pickle (the best part, imho), but the texture is wrong wrong wrong like an alien primordial cheeseburger slurry
Selfies, Venus fly traps, I'm wearing real colours
I want to wear this dress and go out for a picnic, but I'm going to have to settle for trying to feel a bit energized before hitting the kitchen to make dinner.
Cooking, non veg
Tried a new to me beef pie recipe last night, and it was all right straight from the oven but wildly improved after sitting in the fridge overnight and made a pretty great breakfast. (The side is garlic broccoli.) Might try a lentil pie next time, because that would be way better with the buttery crust. #FediKitchen
I forgot I ordered this print a while back, it came in the mail yesterday and when I opened it this afternoon I started ugly laughing. I can't get a frame for it right now, so it's attached to the sleeve it came in and propped on the shelf near my record player. "Everything Is Fine", indeed.

Selfie, evening walks are preserving my mental health
TFW things happen so much at a pace that's hard to grasp, yet spring still brings forth the little yellow flowers and there's opposing reasons to appreciate them in the moment
Looks like home food in the pan, looks like a mess of casserole on the plate, feels like comfort food and breakfast in my belly
Getting ready to put tonight's dinner in the oven, a Spanish tortilla/egg casserole dish using up leftovers from the last few days:
- pulled pork
- roasted potatoes
- roasted asparagus
- sauteed peppers and onions with balsamic glaze
It's been a while since I've made something like this, fingers crossed it comes out evenly cooked 🤞
First night of spring: magnolias that seemingly came up overnight and the evening star
How cute is this cloud?! I signed up for a weaving workshop thinking that this was a technique I didn't know, but it's just plain weave that puffs up because the roving is too thick to lay flat with the warp. It was worth it though, because weaving on a shaped frame is a lot of fun, and pretty chill. Since you aren't going to take it off the loom, there's not as much worry about maintaining tension.
Selfies, vintage repro and modern romance
This dress is great because it's a lot like a 1940s Love Letters print, but the envelopes being outlines instead of solid makes me think of an old school text messaging icon or a DM slide.
(The necklace is one I've had for years and years, and has a quote from Hamlet on it "Love all, trust a few. This above all: To thine own self be true" which is "Live Laugh Love" for theatre nerds and kids who took English Lit as an elective.)
