I must obey the inscrutable exhortations of my soul—Calvin and Hobbs

My go-to smoothie is a banana, frozen strawberries, half a cup of plain yogurt, a couple tablespoons of almond- or sunflower-butter, and enough orange juice to ease the blending. Sometimes I add frozen blueberries or peaches. It’s so good—I have it 2-3 times a week.

I remember the crazy days. 500 posts an hour. Nubmer! Natgbsb

Lovely lazy day. Hope everyone is having a nice Sat.

I love my Saturday mornings these days... Matt goes to a class, so I have several hours to myself to just faff about. I mean, today, I had to do some work, but there was still a lot of faffing.

Love the dude, but love my time alone, too.

Might go to the pool this afternoon.

Yep, a lovely day here, too.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

As usual, getting routine maintenance done on the car turned up other things that needed to be taken care of. I had them do the most urgent things, as doing all the things would have been more than I wanted to spend.

We are Buffistas. This isn't our first apocalypse. -- Pix

I got in a brisk 8 mile walk in the redwoods this morning. Lots of other folks at the park, lots of muddy dogs! It was nice.

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

Now would be a good time to know who our accomplices are in the event that our marginalized buffistas need to relocate.

We went to a Celebration of Life for our friend who died in January. Plenty of music, as she was a musician. Nice to see how many people attended, both in person, and on Zoom.

My niece's 18th birthday is this week. It snuck up on me (denial?) I was thinking of getting her a gift card, but how much is appropriate these days? I remember getting a $100 gift card for graduating from high school (RIP Britches), so presumably more than that? I suppose I could ask her parents too, but I think that they'll lowball out of politeness.

more than $100 seems like way too much to me but I am not a parent

Our wings are not tired.

I love a nice round number for gifts and think $100 is a generous (and appropriate) amount for the gift.
