Peak eclipse in my hometown (92% blockage!) is in less than ten minutes, and it's. Frickin'. CLOUDY.

I hope those of you also in eclipse range are having better luck of it than I am, and wish you the best observing experience possible. Enjoy it for me as well, for I shall have to rely on twenty-two year old memories instead.

Farm update

I love the farm. I just love how quiet and peaceful and gorgeous it is.

The adolescent guineas and pheasants in the shed get meal worms as a treat. Meal worms are the BEST, according to them. The internet says that pheasants are wild and won't tame down, but apparently these sites don't know about meal worms. Anyways, today I picked up the bucket where they are stored, and one of the guineas was so excited that she Flew At Me, hit my chest, bounced off and ran away.

Abbie had a couple of good sprints down to the barn and back.

Today I saw:
A hummingbird feeding off the cannas
A Monarch butterfly
A female cardinal
A woodpecker (I just heard this)

I really did mean to post more!

Anyways things that have happened: Japan!

We went to Japan an it was amazing and awesome and I was entirely overwhelmed with how pretty everything was. We ate a tonne of food, all our tours had lunch packages and most of them were traditional style Japanese lunches, which were mostly delicious, although some of the textures weren't my favorites.

We had excellent luck with weather, despite it being rainy season and generally grey. As seen in the photos below the weather was perfect for our Mt Fuji day.

On the whole, I was really glad we did the tour, we got to see more than we ever would have on our own, and it was nice to not have to worry about getting around or missing something, or being inadvertently rude.

Next time we go back (and we want to go back) we'll do our own thing though.

I slept most of the day (I think I had a mild vaccine reaction). Abbie gave this gentle, polite woof of a bark to wake me up at precisely 4:30 pm, meaning, it's time to go to the dog park. She is good at telling time.

Lately it's calming for me to describe things on Tumblr:

I try to keep it positive. (There is some NSFW stuff but it's tagged.)

I enjoyed this Dorian/Iron Bull fanfic

These two episodes are kind of boring compared to the first three, but there are some notable points.

Embrace the Trickster

One of my favorite imaginary pantheon headcanons is that the deity of Love moonlights as the Trickster. Or possibly the Trickster moonlights as Love. Or maybe they're the same being, or maybe they're twins and switch places sometimes for kicks and giggles (because Love likes playing pranks sometimes, and Trickster maybe has a secret soft spot for humanity (see also: stealing fire, etc)), or maybe they're lovers and their fusion form and/or child is Romantic Comedy (who possibly sometimes changes to Romantic Tragedy when they're feeling down).

Point being, I feel like Love and the Trickster have a lot of potential chemistry together. The kind that makes really cool reactions and sometimes explosions. And just way too much in common in general. And no one can convince me otherwise.
