    Yay!

    I'm moding (and modernizing) a pattern for a SCA Norse-style apron dress with a modern fabric as a summer dress. I found this really cool, sort of silky-ish navy blue cotton with the arrow pattern of a wind map on it (but no map below) and I'm going to use variegated red thread. Its also getting pockets.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    RIP

    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    This amuses me. Unfortunately, the default family member they selected is the wrong one (Grandma calls me anytime anything out of the ordinary pops up, doesn't install things on her own and uses maybe five programs. She mostly stays out of trouble, her brother however...) and their advice is completely insufficient to the task.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I know what I'm doing!

    *pushes thread out the way.

    I hate to say what makes me smile. I bought one of those bug zappers that looks like a tennis racket. I went to town in my kitchen with those small gnats. Just a few, but they drive me nuts. I can hear them when they hit the mesh. And then there is a faint whiff of fried wings I presume. Don't be coming into my kitchen! I feel like the executioner!

    So I'm feeling motivated to get back into taking care of my health. I fell off the wagon for summer. Yay!
    I've been back to swimming. But it gets boring. But! I just got my amazon order in of a waterproof mp3 player. So I can listen to my audiobooks/podcasts while swimming.

    And speaking of exercise. I got myself doing 30 minutes of at home workout videos from youtube. I have a list so I don't get bored. Mostly low impact high calorie burn. I can't be jumping but dang I'm sweating it up. Also added in Belly dancing and Hot Hula. I even do it barefoot in my bedroom. I just want to get those 3x a week of movement in.

    Then I started eating those chia seeds. And they are a miracle food. My sugar has been getting under control. And it's pretty yummy. Next week I'm experimenting with chia choco pudding and chia pudding with almond milk unsweetened. I'm also adding in coconut shavings and taking a trip to Whole Foods for some keto granola. I've noticed when I get home late I don't eat as much. The chia really keeps me full.

    And I just got my fit tracker watch. It shows specifically my heart rate and bp. I need that because my dr is saying it's high when I'm at the office. But I tell her I've tested outside of the office and it's pretty ok. So this has a usb in it and it's also paired to my phone. This way I can show her what's going on.

    So yeah, that's what is making me smile. I'm just trying to go really slow and steady. Little things to add.
