Stormbound, A Year Later

That said, it’s still pretty fun. And while many small games of come and gone from my phone, this game has remained. And that feels worth mentioning. Even after all this time, it’s still one of my go-to games that I thoroughly enjoy.

Alas, Poor Yorick

After our visit from the fireplace guy yesterday (which involved opening up and investigating the long-dormant living room chimney), Liz spotted this guy on the floor post-cleanup.

Surprisingly Calm

Ok, “calm” may not be the exact best word here. Less stresed? Less frantic? There were deadlines at work, and I think the rush at the end of the week got to me… but I didn’t have that gnawing feeling in my gut, and that whispering voice my head saying “you’re running behind, you’re running behind” repetedly.

The Last Resort: Wipe and Reinstall

Unfortunately, the fix I had only works part of the time, but the fans were still running pretty constantly. This was bugging me more and more, so I ended up biting the bullet and opted to wipe my machine, re-install Catalina and work from a time machine backup.

Our Small Visitor Returns

We’ve seen him a few times now, attracted I suspect by the clover and some of the berries growing nearby. I sometimes see him in the late morning, and late evening, wandering around. I also think I’ve seen a larger bunny, with a similar look (possibly a parent) also in the yard. Though I’ve never seen more than one bunny at a time back here.
