We had a visit from Ben today! 😮 Beanie definitely remembered him, though we gave him a full dose of the calming medicine and he was still barky to start with but calmed down faster than we expected. Played another game of Warhammer Underworlds which was a very low-scoring game, mostly because nobody was able to kill each other because both people kept rolling crits on the attack but then also getting them on defense.beanie our house darkroom gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds myari's purifiers lady harrow's mournflight

Oh man, I used our new electric lawn mower and whippersnipper today and it was an absolute DELIGHT. No fucking around with the stupid starter cord on the mower and it cuts so nicely. The whippersnipper has tons of power as well and lengthening the line is gloriously easy.

Beanie is very pooped out after his walk.

Woohoo, my fancy espresso scales arrived! (I mean, you can obviously use them for more than just espresso, which we'll be doing).

Aw yeah, using our barbecue for the first time in probably six months. Chicken that's been marinated in miso, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil. We had it with rice and green beans and it was bloody delicious.

Kristina bought me a set of ice cube trays that make REALLY BIG ice cubes, so I'm having a rum Old Fashioned with one and it's excellent.

That was an excellent last mental-health-Friday off. Got all the new garden equipment (sans mower) mounted tidily on the wall in the garage, and also put in a bunch of new hooks in on the other side to similarly neaten up the stuff that was hanging there. I also took the opportunity to take the new blower for a spin to clean the floor of the garage out a bit. It's got a "Turbo" button, and HOO BOY am I glad I had the arm strap attached because it was actively pushing backwards against me!

REALLY hoping we don't end up with smashed solar panels after this storm... (Update: they were fine!)

We've also gone whole-hog and replaced ALL of our outdoor gardening equipment with battery-powered stuff from a company called EGO. It's apparently extremely well-regarded and is as good as petrol so I'm keen to see how it goes.

I'm excited to see what interesting things I can do with these little basing grass tufts and the "muddy ground" texture! Got a few ideas already, and definitely no lack of miniatures on which to use them. And I decided to pick up the Grymwatch having seen someone do a WAY cooler paint job with them than the standard one.
