*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.

More oyster work yesterday. I was told I'd be picked up at 7 so I got up at 6:30, I was ready by 7 but my ride didn't show until 7:45! So I was rather tried. Getting up before 7 am always makes me a bit grumpy, I don't mind getting up at 7 but anything before strikes me as too early.

However it was lovely day to be on the shore of the bay, and we where in a lovely spot. The weather was sunny and cool with fluffy clouds, and we where far away from most highway noses so much of the time we could birds calling. It's great to be paid to be outside on a day like that.

Well after in rained and rained last week, it has been really sunny and warm this week. Today I am wearing shorts. These super sudden swings are weird.

So I wanted to get out of the house yesterday, while it was being cleaned. It was pouring rain but I decided to try walking up to the branch library near my house which I had not been too in ages and ages. (I mostly go to the central library which is much bigger and only 5 min more away by foot) However the Library was closed in the mornings. I was quite wet at this point and didn't want to go back anyways so, I went up the nearby shops. I browsed in the bookstore a bit. Then got expensive tea and sat in a cafe for a while. When it was raining a bit less I walked home again. Got there as the cleaning people where leaving.

It's cold and wet outside. I don't want it to be.

I have an oral exam at the end the month as part of the so I can get on the list to be hired by a state agency. I'm trying to study for it, but I don't really know how. I'm also trying not to be stressed out about it.
