Pinned toot

ahh, a clean fresh account that I haven't yet filled with terrible posts. hi,!

i guess this is a re- so: I'm natrix, 41, she/they/whatever, UK, white, queer, got married to my awesome spouse last month, have a 2 yr old, 2 cats and 1 grumpy lizard.

I like cooking & recently got really back into growing herbs and veg! I'm fairly severely disabled & have a fucked up brain so I don't always have a lot of energy for it but I find it really soothing. plants good.

finished! it's been ages since i actually finished a crochet project and it's really good to remind myself that in fact, i can still do this and make something pretty if i put my mind to it. just hope my mum likes it now!

crocheting a scarf for my mum's birthday next week (figured if i stuck to something simple it would actually get finished in time). i love this yarn, i think the colours look like a beach on a misty day. I've had it forever waiting for something good to do with it, but this seems like the right project.

My basil plant is flowering!

I have approximately 9000 other basil plants growing currently that i can eat, so I'm going to let it flower and hopefully collect some seeds.

made some pearl barley vegetable soup... turned out a bit heavy on the vegetables and light on the soup, but good!

At the start, your character's partner hugs them and leaves their shared loft/greenhouse.

The protagonist is working on some lengthy technical project and their partner will be away for… a few weeks? It's rainy. Maybe the project is building or enhancing their community's solar panels or something. There's a mini-game to make progress on this.

There's also a minigame to water and arrange your succulents. And play with your cat (or other pet???). And one to read while the sound track plays.

I've had this idea for a while for basically the video game equivalent of Chill Beats To Study To. Mostly because I want to play games with this energy, not that I want to really get into game dev.

It would be called something like The Project. It's a management sim with solar punk aesthetics and chillhop beats, obviously. All the characters are of indeterminate gender. There's no dialog.

suddenly wanted to draw something properly/non botober, so here's an octopus

maple syrup tastes so much better than anything squeezed out of a tree trunk has any right to

as a bonus, here is day 13: an etruscan bowl filled with cat hair on a coffee table

i found a reference of an etruscan bowl with cats on, so i had to

i missed a bunch of these bc exhausted

today's is Sir Isaac Newton in a bucket

apple included not because i think he was constantly being rained on by apples at all times, but because let's face it, this would not otherwise be recognizable as Newton

facial likenesses are not my strong point

neither are buckets, apparently

I started making a blanket in lemon peel stitch and it is taking forever. this isn't even gonna be ready by next winter at the rate i crochet

still, it's something to do that isn't doomscrolling

I will probably use more cheese and a little less garlic next time, but still, a+ idea, delicious, would eat again

I made the sunflower seed pesto and it is, in fact, very good! Also my basil plant is no longer approaching the ceiling, lol

(it may look as if there's not very much sauce on the pasta, which is because this stuff is STRONG. I was like "oh no there's barely enough for one bowl!" at first... then i tasted it and realised that a little is going to go a long way with this)
