Friday, Catio and Beloved Time

So far today, I have: finished a chapter (#419), done my stretchies, tortured my feet, had my coffee and pills, and cleaned out the catio.

Beloved was still lounging naked in bed, last I looked. Her day starts in a handful of minutes.

Today, I am going to shrink the assets I have for Pseuducku. I'll try 256 pixels square so they can still be 'readable' as the art I've already accomplished.

If that doesn't work, I'll try double that.

Results will be in my Patreon.

For now, though, I attempt to focus on the daily offerings. Here I go.

Wednesday, Busy Bean

I gotta get Mayhem to APM by 11. I gotta do some shopping. I gotta get my offerings out. I gotta do some side projects. I gotta finish calibrating OBS so I can stream from Linux-land.

I should eventually figure out how to make Stencyl work here as well. Meanwhile, I can at least work on some assets.

And I wuzgunna post my Patreon stuff today as well.

At least most of my nonsense can be wrangled. OTOH, I am managing this

Saturday, Parkrun, Leyland's Tour, and Ouchy Feet

My left foot hates me. Specifically in the heel where my bone spur is. It's been acting up and I have no time to help them heal during certain days.

Our journeys today included a couple of side trips. One to pick up some new hardware, and the other to get better shoes. Both for Adorable.

And that's why I'm writing this at half-past 2PM.

I am a very tired bean and not inclined to do any more work to sorting out

Wednesday, Leyland's Tour, Shrink, and STUFF

I need meds, I need to acquire foods and maybe a few other things. I need to check out all the White Goods PPL in my zone to help MeMum narrow down brands of washing machines she needs.

So I'll also be asking to see their dumbest washing machines with a priority on a separate spin cycle. And real buttons.

It's promising to be an expensive week, this week. My flight path today includes Costco and Petbarn and that's how you know

Tuesday, Patreon, Pill Hunt, and Bread

I've got the oven preheating for the second time, because I only had time to cook one bread, yesterday. So now I'm a few hours away from actually putting that thing in the oven.

...I think I might need to wash my lame. It doesn't seem to be working like it should. That's going to be interesting because getting sourdough goop off anything requires a decent soak.

After the bread's done and cooling, I pln on taking off to North Lakes to

Monday, Backup Reads and Anxiety

The writer's group is going over their tales for the week gone past. Two days hence, Beloved enters the hospital for a very "Space Orc" operation.

Reveal icky things here

* Cut open her arm
* Cut off the jagged edges to make them flat
* Insert a piece of a corpse's _leg bone_ so it's all the right length
* Bolt it all together
* Sew her back up

She'll be sore and sorry for herself by next parkrun. And very likely on some really good

Friday, Shopping day, Phone calls, and Beloved Pickup

I have MONEY! Yay. It's immediately going to go on some foods and a couple of treats.

...and staying alive is getting expensive, these days.

Even my normal pinchpenny tactics aren't making the grade. Hell, it's got to the point where filling up on petrol spells a rough financial week.

I can still cope, and I can still save, but it feels like I'm just scraping by. This might be also influenced by being pushed to pitching by Beloved. It might only

Monday, Leyland's Tour, Backup Reads, and Stream

My days are just packed. On Saturday, we were all over everywhere, and one of the things acquired for Adorable could not be juggled on the train.

So I took Beloved and the stuff on a lengthy drive through rush-hour wet-weather traffic. Whee fun.

Obviously, I made it out alive, but holy cheez whiz... some folks just believe they can clip through other cars without harm.

As Da would say, the weather got into the sawdust in their skulls.

The writing group

Monday, Reads, Pills, and Nonsense

The Foundry is doing backup reads and I need to get more meds. Eeps. So my story will be happening later in the afternoon.

Chapter count: Just finished Chapter 363

Two more chapters until I start publishing my starter sentences on my socials.

Eeps.

On the plus side, I am managing a chapter every couple of days. Which is good production output.

I shall be nicking off from the Foundry at the commencement of the After Party because I need to go

Sunday, Game Night and Shenanigans

I continue to be a busy busy bean, today. I forgot The Bikkie this Friday, so I fed my starter this morning and hoping for the best. One day is not that bad for a starter in the fridge.

I do have some wholemeal flour to make myself some bread with. Since bread is what I miss the most about going Keto. I plan on doing One Giant Loaf and subdividing it into daily servings and freezing them for later use. I

Friday, Missed Connections and Disrupted PLNs

I spent ALL of yesterday waiting for a phone call from our financiers. I told them to call that day and they firkin didn't DO that.

Grr.

I still have to go shopping for better supplies, and that has to happen today because other shenanigans on other days. Yay.

I also have the usual unfucking to attempt.

I have, in the process of this week, learned that expecting two side-projects every day is a little bit rich for me.

Lesson learned.

Thursday, Shopping PLNs

Today's usually a day of rest for me. BUT...

I need to get cat food. I need to pick up a few little things. I need to make sure we have enough.

Enough bread. Enough butter. Enough eggs. Enough cheese. That sort of thing.

I have to wait for Costco to open before I get going on that. And it's going to be hot as balls today. My goal is to get what we need and get back into the AC before

Tuesday, Tech Support Excursion

Patreon and all my other offerings will be LATE today. Because the instant I finish my morning routine, I'm offski to MeMum's for extended tech support and budget wrangling.

It's going to be interesting times, as Mum has just broken something else in her new TV.

And to top it all off, I have a cyclone headache this morning. Huzzah.

Of course I've taken my painkillers. I can drive with one of these bastard heads and have done so before. With good

Friday, Preparation PLNs, Unfucking, and Other Things(tm)

I am gathering lists of things to acquire, places to go to get them, and maybe even the budget for doing all of that. Fun.

My aim is to get as many non-perishables or freezables as possible so I can avoid as much pre-holiday zombie hordes as I can.

Mayhem's making two pies. He can keep those cool or frozen before the Big Day(tm). Finally got some ideas out of Miss Chaos, so now I can concoct a PLN. Yay.

Monday, Doctor's Appointment and Supplies

I got the quack's today because apparently you need to constantly top up your prescriptions every firkin year and I haven't done that since 2021.

Temporally challenged. As far as I'm aware, I just got a prescription a couple of months ago. What the fuck? TWO YEARS? No firkin way.

This happens more often than you may believe.

I'm not going to get better about this.

But the story will not be happening until after I've done all of that and shopping
