Quizzle for 2 January 2022

 

Sorry I'm late, back has me on some good meds.

Have you been hit by the heavy snow across North America? And if not, here, what's the temperature where you are?

 

Not particularly snowy, but ridiculously cold. It chinooked yesterday, and I was finally able to take my doggy for an adventure. She was so happy, it was marvelous. It's been -35C at night for about a month with a balmy -25C during the day. We drive from one car plug in to the next. It's going to be cold all week again. We also had no water for 5 days between Christmas and New Years because the wellhead was frozen. My poor doggy can only play outside for about 10 minutes at a time. We are going to town to buy her some booties today. I think if she gets to play frisbee, her very favorite thing, she will keep them on. We will see...

Do you have any projects you are working on this week?

 

 

Continuing to research my family genealogy and submitting what I find to the lawyers to evaluate my jure sanguinis claim for Italian citizenship; helping my wife pack for her trip to her home country to visit family; making a list of projects to work on while she's away.

starting a large batch of variously flavoured salamis that (fingers crossed) will be ready to take to market in March.

 

Painting a regiment for Prussian Landwehr to go with a Battle of Leipzig game I've been roped into.

I do, but it's a Secret. :) 

 

Various things in progress.  There's a christmas cross-stitch project I have been working on, got started late this year because I had to order new glasses to be be able to see it.  Probably keep going for the rest of the week, then put it away with the tree and other holiday trimmings. 

 

Plugging away on a Stargrave terrain project, some scratch build, some repurposed Bones, some 3d printed. 

 

There's a couple of small quilt projects I should get finished within the next two weeks, to be delivered to a local hospice care center.  I do the piecework someone else does the finishing. 

 

Other than that, it's a pretty slow time of year.

I had/have 3 or 4 big projects happening this week. The first was to get the heat running again. My handyman found the part we needed and we just got that installed. So heat is back on! The second is to brew a batch of beer for next month's home brew competition. And finally, my older Honda quit running again the day before we left for vacation. I need to get it towed into the shop later this week and see how much it's going to cost me. And depending on what they say, it may be that my other project this week is shopping for a new car. 

 

I also need to find someone who repairs privacy fences as the construction idiots across the alley from me appear to have driven into mine while I was on vacation. But that can possibly wait until next week.

Same general goals as the last few weeks, start wrapping up the charcoal portrait I've been working on slowly, and gear up for some paint studies.

Yes.

At work, I am building 2 power converters, and in between those, I am building two power supply controller circuit boards. 

 

At home, I have post holiday clean up to do.

 

Hobby wise, I have to  finish my wife's character mini for our other D&D game.

When someone makes a really idiotic statement, do you:

A: Stare blankly at them

B: Do a facepalm

C : Give them a sarcastic answer?

 

I tend to give them a C. Thou as it came up a couple days before Christmas & it was the day I worked 14 hrs, idiot vendor tried to bring in a rolling cart of tortillas into the backroom & couldn't figure out the the wider side of my opening was the way to go vs trying to put it into the narrow side. I just said "Goooooo oooooon, thhaaaa lehhhhhfffttt sssssighhhddddd!" Said really slow so even a child could understand. You wanna play that game, I'll play right along with yah.

We got a bit of snow that rolled through the central part of OR last week, it smacked Eugene but kinda lost some of it's umph as it went through the Cascades. It did drop a decent amount amount here, afterwards our temperatures have dropped significantly. When I came home this morning from work, it was around 5 degrees F. When my daughter went to work it was like 1 degree. We are suppose to get a snow/rain mix today, even thou we need it badly, I hope not as that just make the existing stuff worse.

I need to print off a couple of sahuagin priestess minis. Hopefully they come out. I think I'm gonna switch out that bargain resin & just put in the Phrozen 4k Aqua-grey. Eat the dollar amount I spent on the resin. I just want prints again. I'd like to paint minis & build models, but we'll see how much motivation I have for those.

Let's see, we had snow on Tuesday and Wednesday, into Thursday.  Probably 4-6 inches total.  Then Friday was nice, around freezing.  Saturday and Sunday it rained, taking care of almost all the snow and getting up to about +7C.  Then a skiff of snow over night and today has a forecast high of -5C.  So normal Maritimes weather.....

Glad your back is feeling better.  Mine decided to complain loudly yesterday, but has settled down to just some persistent grumbling today.

I go back to work tomorrow, so I won't have time to do anything. And my fever came back with a vengeance last night, so I just feel drained today.

1) Try to successfully print an articulating dragon.

2) Finish painting the mini being used for one of my PC's and start the other one.

3) Inventory my Gnome and Halfling minis.

4) Identify and list out what's on my SoS, so I can develop a plan to get them done

 

Just don't ask us next week what we actually got accomplished and I won't have to contract with W.O.O.F. to pay you a "visit".

One could say a few....

  • First up we have several resin pieces.  First is four plates for Grinning God's Kitsune - 9 Tailed Fox, then there's two plates for White Werewolf Tavern's Oleana the Werewolf Queen and Meirosa (both as 75mm, as well as busts), and then back to the Howling Horde gnolls from Archvillain Games (probably the Scouts next)
  • Master Grade Sazabi should see some work
  • My Voron Trident 300 is just begging for more work to be done on it, so hopefully my printed parts arrive this week!
  • Sure would be handy to find a spot to put all this filament...  And there's even more in the mail.

Spoiler due to messy table 😛

Yeah, it's a bit big.  That's a 355mL (12 Oz) can of CocaCola for size.
