Today in some pictures.

  1. After a dysphoric weekend last weekend and a kind of body-blah week I am definitely feeling better about myself this weekend.  Yay!  Selfies for all!
  2. We have way too many bananas right now.  We have a bunch frozen, some I made into smoothies today, but I decided that some banana bread would help to make a dent in our stash as well.
  3. Minky loved the banana bread!  We also spent a fair bit of quality time together today, since Navyy slept in, had lunch with her mom, and then worked over the evening.  We had a good time.
  4. It rained!  Finally.  The garden needed it.
  5. Made some fish tacos for dinner.  I cut up some fresh tomatillos from the garden and Minky was really into those.  He kept requesting more pieces and was more excited about eating those than his grapes.  Go figure.
  6. Navyy has been dehydrating tomatoes, so this was running all afternoon/evening long.   These yellows were all about to be thrown out at the coop since they were getting soft.  Seemed like a great way to rescue them!  I am sure we will enjoy them in the middle of winter when fresh tomato flavor is a little more scarce.
  7. Still blazing my way through Whipping Girl.  Having read plenty of articles about and/or articles/books referencing her work I knew I would like her stuff.  Definitely a good read if you want a really smart feminist take on trans stuff, or a really smart transy take on feminism.
  8. Played some Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.  A friend of ours, K, gifted this to Navyy a few years back…and it has been the gift that just keeps on giving.  Turn based tactical role-playing games are right up my alley.
  9. I was going to bottle my Billy Goat beer, but then I remembered that all my bottling stuff needed a good cleaning, since it has been sitting idle since the move in our basement.  So I filled these bottles with sanitizer water and will leave them overnight, scrub them tomorrow, sanitize again, and then bottle tomorrow evening!   Then two weeks or so and it will be all ready to drink!  Yay!
  10. Brother-in-law (aka. L) and I played some Magic cards and had a few beers.  We had a couple pretty ridiculous/fun games, and one of my homebrewed beers was waaaay over-carbonated and sprayed all over the kitchen.  Good times were had by all.

That is about it for now.  I am up past my bedtime, but probably going to hang out with Navyy for a bit now that she is home from work.  Hopefully I will not regret this too much tomorrow morning.  Monday monkey lives for the weekend…

The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday, that’s guaranteed. And I can’t begin to explain that. Or the craziness inside myself and everyone else but guess what? Sunday is my favorite day again.
