Complex Relaxing

Knitting is what she reaches for, to help unwind and relax after a day full of work and meetings and even more meetings. When I glanced over, I saw this.

Dreaming of Spring

While standing around, I spotted this note on the wall. For a moment, it felt nice imagining what it might be like standing here in the Spring. With no snow. And no cold.

Probably still masks though. Maybe that’s a dream for next year.

Backgammon Gammon

For the most part, Liz tends to win our games. I get a few here and there. And we’ve upped things to where we play to a certain number of points. But for the most part, she usually wins.

The Mysterious Office

On the way back, we passed by an office where I noticed some writing on the windows. The fact that the blinds were drawn made them stand out a bit more. They looked like chemical formulas/notations.

Accidental Fun Nuggets

We do our ordering through Instacart, and I got a notification that what I picked wasn’t available. And would I be ok with a substitute. At a glance, the substitution was really similar and I thought it was just that the breading was different. When the groceries arrived… I saw this.

A New Bunny Hut

I love that to me, it looks like a snow cottage that one might take respite in, before going out and hitting the slopes. I imagine a small counter where you can get a bit of hot chocolate, before you grab a seat by the fireplace.

J’accuse!

Since Liz started an Invisiline treatment some months back, she’s been needing to drink things through a straw. She’ll still drink from a glass normally, but this involves taking her aligners/trays out first. Rather than do that, she’ll use a straw.

Journey to the Savage Planet

The overall tone is pretty campy and over the top. When logging into your computer for the first time, you’re given this identity challenge to identify yourself. You can probably get a bit of the flavor from this screen alone.

More Bugs = More Fun

This has really been our to-go game of late. Each game has a lot of variety, there’s a lot of back and forth between who wins, and the games overall are fairly quick (maybe 15 minutes or so).

Kitchen Plans

A bit of a placeholder. I don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves, but we’re looking to revisit the kitchen more officially again.

Penn and Teller: The Nail Gun Trick

The trick itself really got me, as I’ve seen the power of a nail gun up close. And even used one a few times. It’s a serious thing, and more than once I’ve wondered what it might feel like to accidentally have a nail go through my hand.

Phineas is Tuckered

I went about vacuuming the area, and even got the vacuum right up to the entrance here. Phineas? Didn’t move an inch. Not at all. He was so still, for a moment there I thought we had maybe lost him.

The Cake Factory

Happened across this video via MetaFilter, and it’s the kind of thing that reminds me why the Internet exists. It’s a one hour and thirteen minute long, wordless video that tours a commercial Korean cake factory.

Cleaning, Outside and In

One thought I had, while working outside clearing snow: there are a few ways to look at the world. Through an adult’s eyes, the snow is a chore, a task that blocks the ability to do other things. Through a child’s eyes, the snow is a wonder, a marvel of nature, the elements rearranged in a way we infrequently see.

Even as I was feeling tired and sore, I tried to look at the snow with a sense of wonderment. Because it really was a fantastic sight to behold.
