April, day 12


Another day turns to dusk, and it's time to post my daily LJ entry.

It has been raining for most of the day, so I barely even stepped outside the house. Just to snap some photos and a brief video of the flooding.

I dyed some yarn. It looks nice. Citrus-y shades; lemon, tangerine, ruby red grapefruit. I may post photos tomorrow, this yarn (Viking of Norway Norgesraggen) dries quickly. It is somewhat fluffy and has a fairly low wool content at 70%.

Reading a little, but still unable to focus and stick with it for more than a few minutes at a time.

In XCOM, I have shot down two Overseer UFOs and have captured two Ethereal Devices. I accomplished this by not sending the Skyranger out to the first crash site. Another Overseer appeared before the crash site expired.

I lowered the temperature setting on my hot water tank today. I am not sure if it even works.. my hot water seems to be running much hotter than what it was set to before, even. Also the washer was thrashing around violently again. Wouldn't surprise me if either of those two appliances were dying. Everything here is afflicted with entropy.

I can't keep up with housework. Things just get dirty again so soon. Dirt and dust everywhere. If I clean something, it stays pristine for only the briefest moment, and remains acceptable for a week or two. But there are so damn many things to clean. I can never catch up.

I'm not as depressed as I sound. I just feel so.. insufficient. Like I could probably pull off running this one-person household if there were three of me.
