New GW preview was interesting. Quite a few things I want to get, elves near top of the list.

 

Need to get painting soon, very stressed with academics. Doubt it'll get better before final exams, which may be the very death of me. <_< :;,;:

 

 

I was glad to see that the Heavy Intercessors in the Kill Team box are multi-part, but I'm still contemplating whether or not to get it or wait until they're boxed separately.

So glad I don't do spray paint priming.  It's -20C outside before wind.  I suspect the living room is going to be a bit cool for a while...

So, my son usually does the pie crusts.  I need to improve my crust skills, so tonight’s supper will be a spinach/mushroom/gruyere quiche in a scratch crust.  It’ll be YouTube videos before I try rolling out the other one. (Two crust recipe.)

 

NB : This is the before; crust blind baked, filling added but not baked, so, no, it isn’t set...

Wow, I just did a stupid thing & somehow selected everything I had written & deleted with a couple keystrokes.....sigh.

 

More or less, game today started off good, but it ended with me ripping into the player that lately seems to argue over things during the game. His excuse was "oh, that's my character's point of view"....yah whatever. As I've said before, I like the guy, even thou, allot of views are radically different then mine (no problem there, why would I want everyone to be the same). He also the guy that supposedly had Covid, but we'll never know since he didn't want to get a test. (Not a argument I want to discuss or get into). Players are hard to find right now + I want to play the game every week, but I think if his behavior gets annoying or when I finally ask the other players if he's becoming annoying to them. I'll let him know he isn't welcome anymore, but for now game will continue.

 

I do need to let my FLGS, that I'd like a 5th person for the game. I know the store has a rpg program right now that helps them bring in some cash, but they know I have a weekly game going & I'll help run games for them, when we can game again at the store.

 

I do need to let the guy know before the next game, I apologize for my outburst. As again it was more or less build up from the past few weeks. I know he'll understand (or at least I hope so, but who knows with his views). Again, good game up until that point.

Tomorrow here is a HIGH of -24, so I'm glad I'm still working on the one model.

When I look at that picture, all I can think of is WHAT DO THOSE NUMBERS MEAN!?!?

Back from an exhausting trip to Carson City.

@strawhat I'm so sorry to hear about your Mother.  Loosing a parent is never easy.

@ManvsMini it is never easy when a beloved furry family member crosses over that Rainbow Bridge.

You gifted them with a life of loving attention and they have returned that love with their own love, a set of memories that can never be lost.

 

Our new home is on the property and the setup crew is well on the way to having the exterior work completed.

I started on the front stoop and steps, but the house is sitting slightly higher [about a foot] off the ground than I had anticipated so the bill of materials needed adjustment and I don't have the steps finished yet.  that will happen later this next week as well as the back stoop and the deck off of the dining room sliding door.

Now if the various people responsible for utilities will get their work done we will be major steps closer to moving day.

I'm spending today doing my vegetable imitation as I'm just flat out exhausted from too much physical exertion.  A sedentary 71 year old man with multiple physical problems doing a "full day's work"  several days in a row  leads to an aching body and a brain feeling sluggish.

SoCal is getting some badly needed rain today!  Now I just hope we don't get too much in one dose otherwise we move from fire season straight into mud slide season.

Wrist is cranky as all sin, but....  I think it was worth it for probably the nicest base coat I've ever done....

Spent the afternoon and evening cutting out pieces for my Layens hive frames. Back aches a bit. Need a workbench that’s a bit taller.

The "4944" clued me in to the Pi Dish.

 

I don't have pi memorized to a set number of digits. Instead I've memorized random blocks within pi and I have no idea how or why.

I was looking over my terrain stuff and I found that I have three different sacrificial altars. From three different companies. I should start buying more cultists... :devil:

...and once again, my plotting is foiled by the lies of the channel 7 news team...

They promised snow. Made it sound like a substantial amount, so I was hoping we'd get something decent. Plenty of snow, howling winds, something to set the stage for when I'd take a nice stroll thru the blizzard to the hill overlooking Rt 47, trenchcoat whipping in the wind, staff raised up high, my maddened evil cackling echoing throughout the night, hoping to make the day of anyone passing by a bit more surreal. 

But nope, all we got was a light pathetic little dusting. Grrr.

Just wait.  eventually he will sleep through the night for the first time, and if you are like most first parents you will collapse in exhaustion for 4 hours and then your slightly rested brain will panic and shake you awake because the kid has been asleep too long and something must be wrong!

 

(i wish i could put that last statement in purple but it happens a lot!)

The Hamsterling is actually sleeping pretty solidly through the night, in 9-10 hour stretches most of the time. Of course when night starts at 7pm, that means that I'm usually up at 4am or 5am for an hour to feed him. Usually I can then get him back down for another 2-3 hours. Most of the time I try to go back to bed. This morning I decided to finish the last episode of Lost in Space season 1, and enjoy some coffee.

That is the BEST Pi plate I've ever seen!

 

More COFFEE!!
