Stabby Cinnamon: I had to backtrack a bit on Stabby Cinnamon, so most of those words are a second draft, but I’ve got past the point that was bothering me, so it should be smooth sailing (ish) and it may even turn into a shorter draft than I feared!

Life And Other Such Important Matters

My bramble has flowers now! Well, one flower. And my small dice tray has fabric lining inside! And… beyond that the week wasn’t too exciting, really. We did some weeding. Well. I did some weeding and tried to get people to do things I couldn’t and failed at the latter. [sigh] But yes thing are quiet. A friend and I are trying daily productivity check-ins and seeing whether and how those work for us. I need to find out where the seam ripper went and then I can get started on my sewing projects. I have three: a warm and cozy scarf and two pairs of pants that need a… gusset? I don’t sew a lot. One of the reasons I’m wanting to do this myself is so I can learn. Presumably adjusting clothing is a little easier to get the hang of and you can get better from there. (Besides I already can’t wear them. I can hardly make them fit worse.)

I also got roped back into my Finally Watch All Things Ghibli project. So of course this week is the one where there’s a lot of discussion about ‘Ghiblicore’ (which is totally a visual aesthetic, less so a genre denominator), which honestly my main reaction to it was to cry for joy because clearly I am not the only one with that particular “let’s ignore the BITE and heavy topics because wholesome, comforting fluff” and I will never tire of seeing examples of it.

Stand-out Positive Moment

My bramble has a flower! Not only did it survive until today, IT HAS A FLOWER. GO LITTLE BRAMBLE GO!
