Strange Day

I've been derailed five times already today. One or two were deeply agh!! moments, but they all worked out in the end. It's just been a strange sort of day and I completely forgot to eat lunch and slept in until 10 (which made me late to Jet's class for one of those AGH moments). Too into obsessive mode at the moment. Bah. Thank you, calmingeffects, for providing needed distractions.

But the sugar snap peas are coming up. I saw the shoots as I planted the second row of seeds. I'm going to have to plant lots more tomorrow at the outreach center garden. Spinach, too. The beds are on the south side of the house, there's snow elsewhere still on the ground. But the sugar snaps are up. The green onions from last year are going crazy, too. It's so nearly spring. I have to now start dozens of tomato and pepper plants. Luckily, the little green house John bought me last year is all ready to go. It'll be fun to see everything come up again.

My hands ache from the cold and doing the gardening and watering outside, but it'll be worth it. It will.

On the Gripping Hand...

Actually... lots of people helped out today, now that I think about it.

incandescens's drabble gift was just wonderful. calmingeffects, stark_black's, and bellumina's writings. shadowgirl1605's icons, and great comments by shaterri and calmingeffects and others. Thanks.

shaterri's CD of Anime music is making me just tremble. I'd forgotten what music could do to me. It's amazing to have ALL the voices from a crystal clear copy of the aria from Ghosts in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex come at me through a high quality pair of earphones.

BIG plus was getting my commissions from letmyself_go. Gods, they're just gorgeous, and she was so amazingly patient with all the crazy crap I had to go through to get her payment to her. I am grateful.

Thanks for saving my day, all of you.

Rukia Fun

I had fun doing her even if, as usual, I didn't like the results. And the eyes made me go... no... they're THAT big? But I loved incandescens's prompt of a Rukia in winter gear with her nose showing...

(Edited to add the zipper to the pull and pull the "Fail" as it made people giggle, so that's a win.)
