    What aspect(s) of social distancing/home quarantine have been the biggest challenge for you to handle?

     

    I will leave you with a couple of days to think about that.  On Monday the amazing Glitterwolf will take over for the month of June.  Thanks, everyone, for playing along. 

     

     

     

     

     

    First of all, thank you for the awesome questions!

     

    As of Monday June 1sth You're all in the paws of WOOF!!!

    Tremble! Run before it's too late!!!

     

    What aspect(s) of social distancing/home quarantine have been the biggest challenge for you to handle?

     

    To be honest I had my moment yesterday.

    Until yesterday I felt kinda okay with it all, nobody I know got the virus.

    We have moved to a new place, I can work, every now and then from home but usually from the base.

     

    Yesterday I had a few minor inconveniences spoiling my mood a bit, then when we watched television  yesterday evening I got so fed up with all the talk about "a new normal" "a new society" all the things we probably should stop doing etc etc...

    I got crancky, told my girl I was going to take Brutus for a walk, came back took a shower and went to bed.

    I didn't want to hear anything about it anymore.

     

    Today, I feel fine again, the moment has passed.

    I have done my shopping, worked in the garden, made a tapas platter for lunch and now I'm preparing a Greek Style dinner.

    Eggplant in tomato sauce with feta and herbs from the oven, Salad, cucumber slices, potatoes from the oven with herbs, pork chops seasoned in Gyros Mix.

    I also acquired assorted Baklavas from our Turkish Deli Store, such sweet dessert or great with coffee later on, might add a scoup of icecream with them.

    I chose the pistache versions since my girl has a slight reaction to walnuts.

     

    And the 3D printer is busy. Hopefully in an hour or two I will have a wonderful snake queen, an altarmand some braziers.

    The Snake statues and Stairs will have to be printed on their own, they're too large to fit on the build plate with the rest.

     

    All in all I'm okay again.

    I just miss being able to go out to dinner again or just hike and then sit down somewhere to have a nice tea or coffee with some pastries.

    It will come I know, and from june 1st the Netherlands re-opens more, but I still don't feel safe enough to be the first one in a restaurant.

    We will wait.

     

    I have to take care not to get depressed or angry about it all.

    Overall I can handle it, there just some of those days where things don't go as planned and then it gets too much when I hear the politicians/medics/people in the street all fight over how we're supposed to live from now on.

    F that! I want to go back to normal.

    I did the mistake of visiting the Raging Heroes website, to maybe order some of their creations... 

     

    Bad idea!  

    So much flashy with pictures overlaying the text, menus and all kinds of nonense going everywhere if my mouse so much as came close to the browser.   

     

    Anyway. My order of UV LEDs just crossed the border, so they'll be here on tuesday or wednesday. 

     

     

    There is a KS coming for STL files, that way you can print good ones

    Thanks for all the 'Likes' and comments everybody!

     

     

    He reminded me a lot of the House Elves from the Harry Potter films, so I went down that route for his skin-tones rather than the usual Goblin Green.

     

    Great choice!

    Veeery nice! This is coming along great! vibrant colours, nice work of art.

    I'm very interested how you'll apply the water effect. I had a similar attempt to put water on the edges of a base that didn't have a border. I failed miserably in my attempts and gave up on that one.

     

     

    Use Vallejo Still Water, not the bottle but the jar with the paste in it.

    That is white paste and will dry clear.

    You can create waves with a plastic spoon etc..

     

    I used it in several projects.

    One reason why it was part of of my initial pledge amount. Looks good thou. Right now thou, I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with 2 large ships......:rock:

     

    For me as well.

    Not even sure If I will actually keep it, but I rather think about that when holding it in my greedy paws for a reasonable price than drool over it knowing it will be too expensive anyway.

     

    Right...I think I'll keep it.

    See?

    My main problem with it is storage/display, but know I know.

     

    It will be put in my display cabinet in the section meant for pirates/conquistadores, maybe sea creatures.

    So the ship will be in there, the minis on deck and around it.

    Basically turning that shelf into a small diorama...

     

    I want it!

    I think I am taking her off my friends list on Facebook. This just isn't right.

     

    I've cut the ties with a longtime friend of mine a few years ago.

    If it doesn't feel right then it is time to evaluate the situation.

     

    I asked myself,

    • Does this feel right?
    • Can we talk about it and maybe change things?
    • What are we both getting out of this friendship?
    • Is it all still worth it?

    You'll figure it out when you got your answers to those, then act.

    Life is too short to be dealing with toxic situations.
