Why not combine the two activities. Results May Vary...:boozing:

This is one of the masks I'm making. Not finished yet, was at an early pressing stage.
Not only is the pattern composed of anatomical illustrations, IT GLOWS IN THE HECKING DARK.

I have 6 of those cut out and they've already been snapped up! They're gifts for family and friends, not for sale.

People will pay good money for those, charge them, you'll be making money hand over fist!

Looking down the blocked sewer in our garden.
We have a shared drain with next door neighbours and whilst my wife and I are extremely careful with what we put down the drain, our neighbour, who has a number of young healthy women living in the household, daughters, partner and a sister, are not nearly so careful. The man from the water board will be round, hopefully later today, and I suspect he will find the usual suspects causing the blockage, sanitary towels and wet wipes, which they refuse to bag and bin.
The only consolation is the manhole in their garden is lower than ours and so if it gets really bad it empties into their garden and not ours.
In the interim, every time we flush the loo our whole sewerage system gurgles and pulls the traps leading to an escape of nasty smells.

My father was a plumber, and he was very strict in telling us not to put anything other than "the usual" into a toilet. It's a toilet, not a garbage bin! There's a difference!

My brother has a similar problem with idiot neighbours who flush wipes. Every few months he proactively drags up the big drain cover in the middle of his lawn and removes bags and bags of wipes. If he didn't there'd be all manner of sordid frightfulness.

That's what makes them a good gift, when nobody else has them. When, say, Escette is out in her glow in the dark anatomical diagram mask, and someone asks her where she had it from because they want one, she can say 'You can't buy them, it was made for me!'

I'm popping out in my Nightmare Before Christmas one in a bit. There are 6 of those too, all spoken for! Claimed before I'd cut the last thread!

Satisfying.

A mate rang to say she'd been training two new starters at work. Apparently they both know me and sent their regards. Oooh, really?

Turns out, not only do they know me, I got them the jobs! They're ladies I've told over the last few months to ring my boss and get a CV done and pop in to see him, and tell him Scargy sent them. Looks like he's taken them on after my personal recommendation.

How nice! I do hope they stay and have fun.

Making vegetable soup, using up the pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots and potatoes we had, along with garlic, onion and curry powder (for added zing!)

Planting some pieces of yellow daisy that my friend gave me.

Thank you for the reminder that I have sunflower seedlings to plant out.

I LOVE sunflowers. One of my earliest memories is of being lifted up to look at our next door neighbour's garden when she'd grown some. I'd never seen them or even heard of them before and to little 4 or so years-old me they really did look like a row of suns!

Later the neighbour pulled them up and threw them into our garden and my younger brother and I delightedly paraded them up and down the path. Nellie may have grown them to feed her chickens, is that a thing?

You'd probably like tree dahlias as well.
Mine are blooming at the moment and are about 3 metres tall.
I first saw them years ago peeping over a fence and had to have some.

tree dahlia

Are they one of those plants we have a thread on, that have superstitions around them? I think they must affect the memory because if you Google that you get a photo of a lady who's forgotten to put her skirt and blouse on.

I got a packet of seeds yesterday from either Ebay or Amazon via a slow boat from China - ordered them before the lock-down so don't remember anything about them, but they look like fancy sunflower seeds.

Feeding yet another of a pile of unmarked cassettes into my music centre.

Amazing, the stuff I taped over the years.

Listening to a podcast on the Wonderland (Four on the Floor) murders of 1981. It has everything, sex, drugs, pornstars (John Holmes) & more. Not for the feint of heart.

Indulging in one of the best things about being alone in the house.

Licking the plate after eating dinner. Why, what did you think I meant?

Pink sunflowers! Never heard of that before.
