10:33a i think i’m going to make the old polos i still have into tunic tops.

like cut the collar + a little from the body, stitch it to part of a sweater maybe? maybe not a tunic top. hmm. maybe i’ll go to goodwill and look for long sleeve shirts to layer it with, cut the polo and stitch them together to make a shirt that won’t overheat me the rest of the year.

also i can’t wait to hear frigay’s take on krampus. i don’t think i’ve watched that specific film yet. fun times.

10:50a i got my truck back no problem. i’m assuming that it got fixed. it’s not like they charged me.

note to self: do not take allegra again if you have stuff to do. it might say non-drowsy but it’s not.

3:28P jesus christ today has been awful. fuck allegra. i’m so done with that garbage, never taking it again

i am so tired

in other news, the hollywood handbook guy and jjgo is just a fucked show because it’s literally everywhere all at once but it’s 100% funny

4:30p i’m finally waking up a little bit. this sucks. i’m thinking about my temperature shawl while i’m waiting on the parcel fabric job i have going to finish. i think i’m going to do a shetland lace pattern i saw a knit stitch website for the month of april. it’s really pretty and i think i can make it work with the increases. i just have to sit down and sketch it out in excel or something to make sure it will work. i have zero desire to tink back with that piece, and tbh it might be impossible since i have to break the yarn at the end of the row.

or i might just do a moss stitch, i haven’t figured it out yet. i just know that i want to do something different for the next 3 months on that shawl, since the first 3 have been plain stockinette.

4:35p yeah. i think i’m going to do a moss stitch for the temperature shawl and i’m going to rip out the asymmetrical shawl i have working rn and do the lace pattern on a triangle shawl with that yarn instead of the asymmetrical pattern.

10:44a my soapmaking stuff will be here tomorrow. along with stuff for more chap stick. i can’t wait. i love making my own stuff.

11:26a i’ve fallen in love with bigg’s dill pickle sunflower seeds. i can only seem to get them at walmart. or amazon. it’s easier to go to walmart.

11:42a i wish i had more me time

11:48a or just go on a road trip. just leave for a week and go somewhere else. it would take 2 days to get the fuck out of texas anyway

3:20p i prepped some pasta salad for dinner for the rest of the week.

10oz cherry tomatoes
1 14 oz can of quartered artichoke hearts, drained
generous 1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
onion and garlic powder to taste

150g dry rotini, i have the ronzini super greens rotini on hand
1 tbsp butter flavored coconut oil (or butter w/e)
vinegar of choice, to taste
add more seasonings to taste, i did more s&p, garlic, onion, paprika and some parsley
** preheat oven to 425*
** slice tomatoes in half
** toss tomatoes and drained artichoke hearts in olive oil and seasonings
** roast for ~30 minutes until nice (my oven might suck, set a timer for 10 minutes and adjust time as needed)

** boil salted water for pasta
** cook to al dente
** drain

** toss with butter stuff and vinegar

** combine w/ tomatoes and artichokes in a bowl, season to taste

makes 3 portions. serve cold w/ cold meat or bean of choice. i use canned tuna or canned salmon. chickpeas or great northern would be an acceptable swap.

3:37p i am digging this episode of archive 81. “exist in the place you are currently occupying”

3:58 “beano looooove elegance, beano love luxury” beano’s my favorite character on mission to zyxx
