*I've already posted my four "unpolished" posts for February! Go me but I feel still feel like writing stuff some here's another one.

*This weekend is kinda hectic. R is away at a con and we have a somewhat unexpected house guest. (She was expect to come visit but earlier in the week, and it wasn't planned that that she would stay with us.) Plus I'm feel a bit under the weather.

*House guest is very excited that I know what Mob grazing is so we chatted about grassland ecology and rangeland management. Grasslands are one of my favorite types of ecosystems and we need to protect them more.

*it's been raining so much over the last week. Very heavy rain too. I've been feeling a bit cooped up.

*"Bits and Bobs" is what I call my lots small unrelated things make a post posts. Feel free to comment on only one or two points.

*I've been having many thinky thoughts about DW culture and Tumblr and change but nothing that's solid yet. I've been in retrospective mood thinking about fandom and the past. I'm not quite in transformative works fandom though I've been adjacent to it for years. (I think I'm finally comfortable saying I'm in SFF fandom but for years I would have said I was fandom adjacent there too.) But I've been thinking about my fanish activity online now and it the past. I have really concluded anything. Maybe if I do I'll write a longer post

*Its been raining a lot here. I'm glad we missed out on the polar vortex though -- that looked way too cold. I'm hopeful that we will have another year of not a drought anyways.

*recently I've been trying to learn how to make egg-in-the-hole, you know toast with the egg cooked in it. Sometimes it works better than other times. Luckily it tastes fine even when the egg does go where I want it to go. I think the sliced bread we get is a bit too squishy and I want to get some more nice sourdough and try again with that.

1)The Bay Area was full of smoke form wildfires to the north for about two weeks. It was very unpleasant. We had to keep the kid inside and E who is in her 70s and has some breathing problems got quite sick. We were able to plan a last minute escape to Morro Bay where we spent two nights. I saw many sea otters! We hung out on the beach which was lovely, and E slept a lot and has recovered. So I'm really glad we had the time and money to do that

2) Our Thanksgiving was nice. I hosted for my family, and my turkey came out well. I still miss being in the UK or grad school and having peers to invite but its nice to have the family too.

3) I'm one of many people over at Lady Business discussing our anticipated books for 2019.

This week I've been very domestic. Lots of sewing and organizing. All my mending is mended (well not the darning, because I can't darn so I have to wait till my mother get to it ) and I finished one sewing projects, and have almost finished another -- I expect to wrap it up today or tomorrow.

I've been making some progress on shorting recipes and clearing out the dollhouse.

Oh and I have been reading a ton.
