You know when people just leave their old furniture out on the street and expect council to pick them up? I got very lucky and got myself a free canvas. It's huge and they usually cost $80+. Thank you kind stranger for dumping your canvas on the street.
Which will hold greater rule over you? Your fear or your curiosity?

That's such a lucky find!  ;D
I once found a whole pile of books in good condition. Also, after it had been out on the nature strip for about a week in the rain, I found a scientific calculator identical to mine that still worked, so I now have one for home and one for school!

Love when a middle age guy with a cover photo of a motorbike comments on one of the few public posts on my fb. l o l.

Guess it's time to limit who can comment on my public posts ::)

Taking bins out. Garbage bag split. The epitome of a stitch-up.

Changed my bedsheets. Vaccumed my house. Took my clothes out the dryer (after 3 days). All under 1 hour. Is this what adulthood is like?

Went to the World Jousting Championship near Warragul (hosted here because last year's winner was from Victoria).  I think we got better weather than is expected tomorrow for the finals (which can also be watched online...)

In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.

Bed covers stayed on for the entire night (I usually kick them off). Subsequently woke warmer than usual. All about the little wins.

Attempting to write a paragraph on the theme Loss and Grief  in Year of Wonders thats due in an hour :o
Surely that constitutes as a paragraph
Paragraph on Loss And Grief
Loss and Grief

Throughout the novel, all characters experience loss and grief and they all respond in different ways. Anna’s loss of her husband Sam, her lodger George Viccars and her sons Jamie and Tom bring her great grief however her losses are what inspires the most growth and change from her. Despite many others blaming the plague on God and succumbing to hysteria, Anna, led by Elinor, concludes the plague is a thing of nature and must be looked at scientifically. In contrast to Anna’s response to her loss, Anna’s mother Aphra Bont is pushed over the edge, and the ‘ravages of her madness’ had taken a great toll on her both mentally and physically as she dismembers her children and kills Elinor in a rage of ‘senseless violence’. Other characters blame Anys and Mem Gowdie for the plague consequently lynching Anys when she performs mouth to mouth on her aunt Mem she is seen as a witch for bringing her aunt back to life.
All characters experience grief and loss however every character responds and copes differently.

So, uh, ANU got hacked. I'm both amused and concerned.


....Apparently this started in late 2018, they only realised a couple of weeks ago, and they're only telling us today ::)

Elaborate? What do you mean "hacked"?
