I spent pretty much all day yesterday working on a new tail. I am doing something new and its more time consuming. Its doubled the time that it takes me to make a tail, which is kind of crazy. So while working on it I was watching Downton Abbey and made a decent dent in season 6. I won’t say anything in case there are people like me who haven’t seen all of it yet, or at all.
Anyway, back to the tail. The tail I made was for the purple team and it’s based off the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland.
My stripes didn’t come out quite like what the real tail is like, but its close. Its 3 shades of pink and 3 shades of purple. It usually takes me roughly 3 hours to make a tail my normal way. This way took about 6 1/2. I lost a lot of fluff in the tail, which I can’t decide is a good or a bad thing. But all that fluff that came off the tail either went into a brown paper bag, on my clothes, on the floor, or sometimes in my mouth. I don’t know how that last one would happen.
With my tails for Feast Of Mars, I’ve decided not to post any photos. I’m going to keep them a secret until October, sorry folks. But once they are all done and its time I’ll post the photos. I am working on them super early to make sure that I have enough time to get them all done, especially with the new technique. I might be making a few of the same tail and see which one turns out the best. I haven’t decided yet.
Last night I took a break and we went to go get dinner at a local ramen house. It was alright. I just wish that the servings were smaller. The bowls are bloody huge and I always feel like I never eat enough to make a dent to get my money’s worth, even when I’m hungry.
My goals for the next 30 days.
Well, I really want to get back in the habit of going to the gym, I was good for a week and then I never went back. I’m not expecting myself to go every day, but if I could go 3 days a week I would be happy with myself. It would probably help me regulate and lose weight too. I also need to make a decision if I am going to go on the food plan that my doctor wants me to. It might be the best thing for me to do in order to loose weight. If I do that and work out maybe I’ll see and get the results I want.
I’m also looking forward to getting back to work with security. Well, to be more specific I am looking forward to getting my old shift back, which was 3 12 hour shifts. So I got all my work done in 3 days and I qualified for full-time work. Woohoo! It” be nice to get money flowing back in again. Disability can only cover and take you so far.
I want to give Gucci a bath sometime within the next week. He’s gotten super itchy and I think it’s because he is so dirty right now, and I can’t seem to get him super clean with grooming him. Every time I brush him he just goes out and rolls in the dust pile he’s created.
Back to every day life…
I also woke up with a migraine today, so sitting at the computer is really hard. I’m enjoying the dark and the quiet of the apartment as my boyfriend is at work. When I’ve had the TV on its been quiet. I’ve also done some coloring today, I finished one picture and started on another in my Enchanted Forest coloring book.
But my boyfriend did swing by for lunch, which was a nice surprise. We watched Whose Line Is It Anyway? If you haven’t seen it you should watch it. Its a great improvisation show which originally started out in England in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Yes, its a show that has spanned 2 centuries! Its had some huge breaks in between though, so it isn’t a constant show like The Simpsons. Currently the show is hosted by Aisha Tyler, who is Lana Kane in Archer, and has her own podcast that I listen to, Girl on Guy. But previously it was hosted by Drew Carey. But I like Aisha because she’ll actually participate in some of the skits and will play along with the other people on the show.
With my migraine I have been watching junk TV, mostly Ghost Adventures. Yes, I watch ghost shows. Its a guilty pleasure. I know that there are things out there that we can’t explain, and I’ve experienced a few things too. I used to work in a feed store that was said to be haunted. One day my manager and I showed up early and were just hanging out in the store before we opened when the radio in the back turned on really loud. It started scanning through the radio channels. We went back and unplugged the radio before the store opened for the day. A couple hours in the radio started up again, it was unplugged and had no batteries in it. It blasted music really loud, and we went to go turn down the volume and it wouldn’t go down, or turn off. So we moved the radio into a different part of the store and just let it do its thing.
I’ve also just lied down and read A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. My boyfriend read it a few months ago and said that it was a good, fun read. And so far he is right. I really enjoy Kell and the different types of London’s and how magic is effected in each world. If I say anymore I’ll be giving stuff away. So no spoilers for you from me. But its a good book. Give it a try.
That’s it for today. Back to the quiet and the dark.
Just keep swimming
