Alone

Advertisements

Quarantine and a wack sleep schedule have dismissed the idea that I was ever going to be in my house alone for more than two hours. Now that both roommates are working, I’m all alone in my place, besides the animals of course, and it’s super weird. I’m not used to being left to my own devices for too long. I mean, on one hand, I can do whatever I want all morning right? 

My morning starts with being bullied out of bed by two hungry, and rather large cats. I say that, I bully myself because I love them too much and don’t want anything bad to happen to them. And Midna is a good girl too who has THE SMALLEST BLADDER EVER! Dogs…

What a cute puppy!

Now on with the rest of my day. Jordan is home first at 3:30ish. By this time it’s about 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning and I’m freaking out mildly. I have too much time alone and don’t know what to do. I’m trying to get into a routine with cleaning right away in the morning. If I can burn all of my “AHH!!!” energy right away, I’ll have been somewhat productive, right? Dishes are always somehow dirty?? Literally I don’t even understand how I own so many dishes that cannot be kept clean??? And I just did so much laundry recently I’m scared of my next water bill.

Lunch time rolls around and I have nothing left I need to do. By now my brain is trying to drive me insane. To deal with this, I either start gaming, deep cleaning a room, or attempt to write some more. I never stick to it though as YouTube usually takes my attention. Instant entertainment is dangerous really. That or I can’t stay home anymore and I just got for a walk.

I found him walking around the other day

Realization kicks in that I’ve spent at least a few hours doing literally nothing and that I’m hungry. Jordan should be home soon, so I’ll essentially make him an early dinner and myself a late lunch. That works! My famous chicken and hash browns! That’s a joke. It’s pretty good, but I am anything but a chef. Comfort food is the best.

With one roommate home, that means only a few hours until the other one is back too. Overall I’ve been alone for about seven hours. I’ve been alone longer at work, but for some bizarre reason, this sucks so much for me. I say that, but I have abandonment issues. But yeah, I spent a bit of time alone, and I hate it.

He got whipped cream on his whisker!

That’s all I’ve got for today though. Thanks for stopping by today, you’re amazing! Stay safe out there! I’ll talk soon!

Went for a Walk

Advertisements

I have great friends. One in particular offered me tomato plants, because I clearly need more plants... The only thing is, I have to walk kind of far to get them. I say far, it’s only four kilometres. The route I took was mostly residential, so I got to see some cute stuff! Man, some people have the cutest places to live. And plants, there are amazing trees all over that I haven’t seen before. I took too many pictures.

There’s a school on the way which has massive fields and hills. Something about this view just feels comforting. This school is known for having the best hills in their district, and I don’t often get to see them in such beautiful light. Plus with school out and parks “closed” there was no one else around. I ended up sitting under a tree for a few minutes just taking in the sights.

In a neighbourhood I had to walk through, the homes were close, if not in the million dollar area. Not only did they have cute yards, but some of the houses themselves were really adorable too. I couldn’t help myself, I had to take some pictures. One day, I’ll have a place that is just as cute on the outside. 

After all of that, I took a different route home and caught a creek just living its best life. No matter how many times I walk around my city, I somehow find something new to explore. There are some cute trails with creeks running through them that I just have to find at some point.

On a side note, people were looking at me funny for carrying a box of tomatoes down the road and taking pictures of every pretty tree I found. And I was wearing my headphones, so I didn’t hear any traffic while I was out. It’s odd how traffic noises are so, heavy. You know?

There’s something about nature and the colours of everything. I love seeing everything as I walk around town. And because I’ve been walking so much, it’s really easy for me to just go adventuring. I share way too many cute pictures on all my social media by the way.

I recently downloaded Adobe’s Lightroom, so I’m hoping to give that a shot and see if I can’t play with some pictures I’ve been taking all over town. Keep an eye out for those! But as for now, that’s all I’ve got. Hope you enjoy the scenery as much as I do!

Stocking the Clothing Department

Advertisements

Now that the closet is painted and mostly ready to be stocked, we have to decide on racks or whatever we’re going to use to hold clothes. Since we’ve just filled and painted all the walls and rebuilt the floor, I’m not wanting to use anything that will damage what we’ve done. And even though I found a scuff mark today, I’m not going to make things worse.

My lovely roommate happens to have a clothing rack that I really like. The aesthetics of it are just dreamy, and match the room really well. That and a cute little stool thing that Shadow has been using as a pedestal. Plus a massive mirror, this room is going to be easily the prettiest room in my place.

So I’ve decided to buy another of those racks. We have three of them now. With those and a couple mirrors, we almost have a full closet! I’m going to look a couple rugs possibly, and we need some more fairy lights. You can never have too many fairy lights.

One day I’ll finish the baseboards. Promise
Weird to think Walmart makes cute things. Don’t mind the bare wall
Slowly filling the hangers
Shadow doing his judgmental rounds

I want to find a little table for a makeup tray, not that I ever wear makeup, but because I have too much of it and need a place to put it all. And because I want to invest into learning makeup, I’m thinking of building a spot for it all if I have to. the bathroom is just down the hall, so I could just suck it up and put shit away like a normal person.

Mostly in there is clothing we don’t wear one a regular basis, like party dresses and large heeled shoes. I have a blazer and matching dress pants that I’ve hung in there and I need an excuse to wear that somewhere. I also have a few full length dresses coming in that I’m going to put on display in there.

Now that the room is basically empty and usable, we’ve been putting stuff in it again, and I’m going to spend some of my free time cleaning that today. Mirror placement is going to be a big deal for the future of that room, and with stuff everywhere, it just needs to be organized. And hopefully once my packages come in, it’ll be extra clean and decorated. There are probably a million different things I could do in that room, let’s see what I pick!

Once I start my Fabulous Fridays I’ll make sure to show off the closet in it’s finished state. But for now that’s all I’ve got. Thank you all so much! Be safe out there, and have a good day!

Rough News

Advertisements

I got bullied into giving up my position at the Adult Store. I don’t know what I did, but honestly there’s not a lot I can do about it. With that, I spent an unholy amount of time writing up a hefty Patreon post with a rough idea on what I’m going to do now. What’s my Patreon you ask, well it’s the only thing with the same name as my website!
Because I’m me, I figured I’d write out what I said again so if you want the extended version, which you probably don’t, it’s here. 

With having so much more free time on my hands, I’ve decided I’m going to invest that into my blog, my writing, and my photography. My website could use and expansion, and I could stand to learn some tips on handling this sucker better. There are probably a trillion different resources out there too, so I’m good.

Graffiti out the Wazoo

I mostly want to do this more, so I’ve planned out some scheduling updates and future plans. They’re not bad, I promise. It’s just more of me. 
Right now, I just post something on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. I have my closet almost finished, so why not do something fun with fashion? It won’t always be me playing dress-up, because I like looking at what’s new and different trends, so I figured something like “Fashion Friday”. Maybe even throw in my attempts at learning makeup into that and I’ll be ready to go!
I also really enjoy gaming, and with having nothing to do all weekend, Monday GameDay is what I’m thinking. That gives me two days to try something new, or invest time into something I really enjoy. Plus I can buy Turnips on Sunday so… But yeah, some schedule updates for the near future. I say the near future, but I have a few more things I have to still do.

My writing and photography skills are not of legend, but that doesn’t mean I should give up on them. I’m going to take the time to hopefully finish a draft or two of my novel this year, and buy a camera. For those who are curious, since my last novel update I’ve written maybe three words. It’s rough I know. And with photography, I live in such a beautiful place, I would live to show it to the world. Even if I don’t buy a camera right away, my phone does a really good job.

I want to grow who I am on the internet and as a person. With that, I need help. I know not everyone has the money to spare, so please, follow my social media, comment on stuff, and share who I am with people you know. I’m always around and I really enjoy everything that has come out of this hobby I started almost year ago now.
I appreciate all of you, and I cannot say that enough. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it this far. You mean a lot to me, and I hope you all are safe and well right now.

Some Good Boys

I know I say it a lot, but thank you so much for stopping by today. Be safe!

Garden Expansions

Advertisements

The other end of town has an amazing nursery that I occasionally give ungodly amounts of money to. Dad and I went recently and I bought some new additions to my vegetable problem. Lettuce, onions, tomatoes and some herbs again are all in need of homes around my property. Although I have a feeling I’m going to plant most of them in pots so I can bring them when I move.

So, it’s been a couple days and I’m worried I have become addicted to attempting to garden. I’ve bought in the past couple days way too many plants. Here’s the list;

A beautiful couple of flowers, left to right are a mini rose in a stunning soft purple, a petunia in a “starry night” pattern, a dahlia which is officially my favourite flower holy gosh, and this… Leaf? I don’t remember what he is and I lost his tag but frick what an awesome pattern!

Flowers!

Onto the herbs, I’ve got a mint, a dill and a bay leaf. They’re sweethearts and I’m excited!! I don’t eat bay leaf much, but it’s just cute. Mint and dill are always useful.

Like the dollar store pots?

Veggies are fun too! Lettuce, full yellow onions, tomatoes and cucumbers! I’m excited to have food of my own this year.

I’ve never grown cucumber before
Needed two pots for this dick
I love home grown lettuce!

I’m planning on growing the lettuce inside just because we eat a lot of it, and it’s not difficult. The cucumber can do what it likes outside, same with the tomato. But the onion I’m still not 100% what I’m doing with it yet. I know they grow downward, just like potatoes, so I may just leave it outside too, we’ll see.

Theoretically dahlias and mini roses can live inside with proper care all year long. Guess who’s going to attempt that? It’s me, I’m going to try, aren’t you excited? Although planting them together may not have been the best idea, we’ll see. Now that I know about the dahlia though, I’m going to decorate everything that needs flowers in dahlia’s.

The herbs are going to be in sunlight but hopefully not too much heat, they burn pretty easy and I’d feel bad if they died. Mint and dill are weeds, so they get to stay outside and isolated. I may even move them onto my deck so they can’t invade anything.

Everything looks so cute all planted and ready to live long happy lives! I’m slowly selling my soul to the idea of being a farmer more and more every day. But you know, there are worst things in the world. One day hopefully I get a full greenhouse, have too many plants, sell some home grown stuff at a farmers market, and be that person.

Almost everything I bought is here

Anyway, that’s all I have fore today. I know this post is long but I figured since I have nothing going on this weekend besides work that I’d leave you with some real content to read. Thanks for stopping by today! You’re awesome!
