Or Sunday, rather. We bought an upright planter thingy and Toby painted it with water sealant and then put it together for me yesterday. Then Sunday morning we hit the shops and bought a couple of extra tall pots, plus dirt, rocks for drainage, and seedlings, then I spent the day getting that all set up.

...that we have baby woodpeckers because I spent several hours outside
today (pics in a bit) and Lord and Lady Downey kept trading off shifts. One
would fly off for a while, then come back and call, at which time the other
one would emerge from the hole and fly off. The first one would then go
down in the hole. I couldn't quite tell if the arriving one was carrying an
insect or not.

The internet tells me fledglings leave the nest in about a month, so we're
planning on taking off some of the dead limbs that look like they might
fall in the future at that time. Leaving the one with the nest hole, of
course.

There's a dove sitting on the chimney, cooing. The chimney is amplifying
the coos and making them sound rather apocalyptic.

This video is short (15 sec) and interesting and appropriate for non-gamers as well as gamers. And does not contain any Mass Effect: Andromeda spoilers.



We finished ME:A last night, after having not been able to play for 4 days due to friends and family over for the Easter weekend. This was the most memorable moment.

We mostly worked on the patio/deck/back yard this weekend, putting together patio furniture we'd bought and doing a few things here and there.

We've got a possible new neighbor. He's small and industrious, but I'm not sure he approves of Toby and me. He was out working on his house site yesterday, at the same time as Toby and I were out back putting our patio furniture together, and he kept coming out of the door and eyeing us suspiciously.

He may decide that living next to us is not worth the risk.

Aaaand yesterday was inexplicably a slow day in LJ land as my breakup post made it to the top 25 of posts on LJ, was #5 the last time I looked this morning, and is gathering comments from people I'm not familiar with! Not complaining, just wondering why *my* post hit the big time and not any of the other million posts I've seen on the subject.

It's been a good 15ish years, but this new agreement LJ wants me to sign has done it. I'm stopping crossposting to LJ and moving over to Dreamwidth. You can find me there at [personal profile] telophase, same as LJ, and if you don't want to get a DW you can use OpenID to comment with your LJ, Facebook, or other creds. A warning: if I don't log in to LJ for 6 months, they can now delete my account and free up the user name, so I may vanish if I forget to do that.

The bits of the agreement I'm eyeing sideways under the cut:
