Got a chance to work a fifth granny square. I picked up this cotton yarn remnant stash at a garage sale seemingly a lifetime ago - one-off balls in a whole bunch of rainbow-friendly colors perfect for Pride Month and Earth Day and other opportunities to have color joy.

I so enjoyed watching this sea-doggo cavort with all sorts of critters, I figured others would dig it as well. 💖

Attention, ESO fans of the irrepressible Arox the Mutilator! He's currently back in the Crown Store as a houseguest for a limited time. Do not sleep on this opportunity if you haven't acquired him yet - he's pure comedy gold. 😸

Guess who forgot to set their computer to download the new ESO chapter before they headed out into the Real World for the afternoon? 😝

An hour later... now let's see how long it takes to log in 😹

The only errand today is getting OUT. Need some trees and other living things that don't require talking.

Glad I could grab this nature break on my way to the med appointment so I could decompress from yet more WTF-ish peopling 😅

Popping up again on my mental soundtrack in "honor" of the Orange Menace being found guilty just now in his hush money trial.

The CrankyBod has decreed that today be a low-energy flat-brainwave day - minimal cooking, maximal goofing off in my favorite MMO. And so it shall be.

Some windshield photography realness, thanks to a parking spot that puts my van in perfect position to smell the roses.

The SciShow folks doing their usual solid short-form documentary work on a topic that's personally dear to at least a couple of their own staff: a 101-level intro to hormone replacement/gender-affirming hormone therapies. :heart_transgender: Suitable for sharing with teachable cis friends and family.

Well-meaning able-bodied neurotypical "helpers" firing off rapid-fire questions at me like "do you want this? How about this? Or this? Just tell us what you need" but not giving my neurospicy brain space to react, till I have to interrupt crying "please STOP!! so I can even think enough to form words, let alone figure out what I need-- and wait I didn't tell you to do THAT, give me a moment PLEASE!"

I swear, just now a "helper" tried to move the container I'd just set down within easy arm reach to put it back in the out-of-reach spot I'd just moved it from because they thought it was awkwardly balanced. I literally had to grab it out of their hand and put it back where I wanted it - and they even tried to question me about it! Arrggg!!!

Down at my favorite accessible riverside hang, shooting out the passenger window for a change.

If you didn’t know, mulberries grow on trees. This tree (foreground) sprang up from nowhere a year or two ago and is absolutely huge. (I did not plant the tree and have not seen any mulberries in the area. No idea how it ended up here).

Picture of two trees. In the foreground is a mulberry tree that I similar in size to the much older tree behind it. Apparently mulberry trees grow quickly.

@Melezioh My childhood home had a couple of big mulberry trees in its yard. The windfall berries would stain the ground purple, and then ferment, and then the bluejays would get into them and start behaving like avian drunken fratboys. 🤣

Stopping for some absorption of nature vibes and caffeine before taking my mail-in ballot to the drive-up box at the post office. This disabled person and their cranky AF body appreciate the heck out of Oregon vote-by-mail, let me tell ya.

My brain decided I needed an especially chaotic earworm, and so this ditty has been stuck on my mental soundtrack for the past three days. Early Frank is some of the wildest Frank. 💖

"This one was having so much fun jumping down the big hole in the Sword-Singer's Redoubt courtyard that he didn't even notice this handy magic rope until now. He'll probably just keep on jumping down because it's funner, but he won't turn down taking the magic rope back up to the top again!"

@mike My old shirts have faded slowly and gracefully, but a newer demand-printed shirt is a semi-legible mess in less than a year. I probably won't remember to turn shirts inside out but I sure will remember to stick to buying properly screen printed tees in future. 😅

Finished a second granny square today. New one's on the left, previous one on the right, just to show how different they look just from reversing the row color order. More rainbow variations to come!

My mental soundtrack has decided to spin some Mothers of Invention in honor of today's holiday. Yeah, my mother wouldn't have liked Frank either. 🤣🤘

Wifey asked her mom last night what she’d prefer to do for Mother’s Day and gave her a few options (lunch, bookstore trip, coffee, etc).

She replies… “I want to come over tomorrow, maybe at 2? For snacks?”

The 2 of us… 👀 … look around the apartment …

Oh, we’ve got work to do! 😂😂😂

We’re still cleaning away… must make the place glorious for the mama! lol

@britt LOL hope mom-in-law wasn't thinking that requesting the snacks-at-home option would be sparing you some fuss and bother!

I celebrated today's summer-ish weather by hanging out on my porch all afternoon making this. I have no idea what this granny square will eventually become - that depends partly on how many more squares I can squeeze out of this stash of odds and ends of cotton yarn I'm using up. I'm less into the destination and more into the relaxing journey with this project TBH. And the rainbows. There will be variations on the rainbows, that I've already decided. 🌈
