We updated Beat Saber for the first time in ages, and I played multiplayer for the first time! It was WAY more fun than I expected it to be! But is it worth giving up our custom map library?? 😫😩 There are 3 songs I will REALLY miss. Gahhhhh…
…as I work at my standing desk…
A set of gifts I knit & crochet for my niece this Christmas. They paired with a book my mom got for her, called Little Robin Red Vest by Jan Fearnley. The book is really adorable, and is essentially the story of how the robin got it’s red breast. This was a really fun project to do, and I’m so happy with how each of the pieces came out. And the vest fit!! I was shocked! 😆🧶
Got my first clear of Cycle Hit on Hard the other day!! ⚔️🎮
Wolf Walkers is such a beautiful movie! 😍🐺
Weaving in ends is the worst part of knitting/crochet, and no one can convince me otherwise!
I started this blanket over 10 years ago when I was a total noob, and didn’t know this was a terrible idea for how to deal with stripes. It sat in the closet for ages till I decided to get it done this year. I have regrets. 😂
🎈Happy Birthday🎈 to the best husband, and my best friend, @burk!!! I love you forever! 💜😘 🎊🎂🥳🎁🎉
You can peek at the others if you have an account; otherwise will share after Christmas! 🎄
So frustrated by checkout systems that only accept coupon codes after committing to a non-ApplePay payment method.
New tea this morning: Passage.
Polar opposite to my typical flavor profile, but I’m glad I gave it a try! I would recommend. 🙂
Convinced an adorable koala to move to my island! 🐨🎮
☕️ Turmeric Ginger tea this morning! Something a little different. Guess I must be in a gingery mood this week. 😋
Also made persimmon gingerbread today, which turned out delicious! 🍞 Had some leftover fruit too, so threw together a tiny batch of jam to use it up.
🧶 I think I have about 11 projects in progress at the moment, 7 of which are gifts. (This number started at 6 when I began writing, but I keep thinking of more!) We’ll see how many end up shipping out for the holidays, and what ends up postponed for later. 😂
Here are the pieces from one I’m almost finished with. Lots of sewing this evening; nearly done!
I had the prettiest drink tonight! 🥃 Fentiman’s rose lemonade and butterfly pea flower gin.
☕️ Tea! Scarlet
Currant, hibiscus, rose hips, roobios, blueberries, orange peel, cranberries, passion fruit, mango. A lot going on in this one, and so much flavor! Great when you want tea, but not “tea”. 🌺
I’m on some meds where a possible side effect is (I’m serious) reduced purchasing impulse control, and it’s difficult to observe for that vs just “holiday shopping.” 😂 🛍🛍🛍
The Oculus’ right controller stopped working 1.5 songs in. So casual: “Oh damn. Well I guess I’ll just finish my workout in 1-saber mode.”
Why is Expert the only difficulty level with one hand???? I’m so completely dead now! 😂 (also am not left handed, making it that much more challenging. I could only pass 2 songs!)
The Yarn Chicken has begun. 🧶
☕️ This morning’s tea, and my current favorite to always keep on hand: JusTea Purple Rain Looking forward to the second brew too; it always brings out more of the lemongrass.
Any Beat Saber-ers out there? 😁⚔️🎮 Crystallized on Hard… No max combo, but getting closer! My hands are shaking so hard at the end. 😂
☕️ Tea today: Holiday Pumpkin Pie 🥧 It has actual pumpkin bits in it! The “leaves” are captivating. 🤩 I wouldn’t say it tastes like pumpkin pie, but it is quite delicious. 😋
