Linkity laments

Things are darker and sadder here in Minneapolis this week and because my heart is pretty heavy (but we are safe), this will be one of those whirlwind type linkities.

Mayhem turned 14 on Wednesday! 😮

Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original ProjectsPrint Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original Projects by Christine Schmidt. Interesting and wide-ranging projects, from using linoleum blocks to screenprinting to cyanotypes. Unfortunately, the book is a decade old, and some of the specialized materials don’t seem to be available anymore.

Reading Update
Terra Incognita: Three NovellasTerra Incognita: Three Novellas by Connie Willis. I’d read these before in different collections, but I didn’t remember/realize that until partway through each story and I enjoyed reading them again, so!
Funny, You Don't Look Autistic: A Comedian's Guide to Life on the SpectrumFunny, You Don’t Look Autistic: A Comedian’s Guide to Life on the Spectrum by Michael McCreary. DNF – humor is one of those subjective things and this grated. My autistic experience is so different from his, I can’t even…
A Field Guide to Now: Notes on Mindfulness and Life in the Present TenseField Guide to Now: Notes On Mindfulness And Life In The Present Tense by Christina Rosalie. DNF – I love the title, but this was another one I absolutely could not relate to.


“What are you doing, Mom!? Why did you wake me up????” -Mayhem

(I didn’t MEAN to wake her up…)

It’s beginning to look a lot like linkity! (It’s sure not looking like spring)

*judging all of us, every single one* -Mayhem

Linkity’s really tired of the constant low-grade anxiety

  • Having trouble focusing to read, but I’m working on it.

*GLARING* -Mayhem

Um. Do you think Mayhem’s holding a grudge about me taking her in to the vet for her shots? And wow, was that bizarre – you park and call them. The tech calls and gets your info, then comes out to pick up your pet while you stay put. The vet examines your pet and calls you to discuss treatment, etc. Then reception calls to get your payment details and your pet is placed back in your vehicle with your receipt. Because the whole thing is somewhat disconcerting, I recommend writing things down and putting that in with the pet carrier for the tech.
