my patronus is a basilisk

All is quiet

There has not really been much to report in the last while; synchronous online school continues to not  work well for the kids, no ones health has changed for better or worse, etc. One more ring in my towers of Hanoi space rearranging project has been moved.

I have been intently watching WandaVision with Sean, and appreciating how much of a standard superhero series it *isn’t*. Subtlety and mystery and humor, even.

I had a very mellow birthday; Sean got me every lemon dessert he could get his hands on. I’m trying to figure out what to do with lemon curd that doesn’t involve baking. I still haven’t been able to provide an answer to the “what do you want for your birthday” question (didn’t manage it for Christmas either) because there is very little Stuff I want, and most of the experiences that appeal are not possible because of the pandemic.

I am going to sign myself up for an online art class, and am currently vacillating between several, but am leaning towards something that will teach me to draw with graphite. My urges to draw keep being stymied by my preferred media being messy as fuck, and I don’t have a place to work other than the bed or couch right now. I’ve never really enjoyed pencil as a medium— I like charcoal because it’s easy to start with tonal masses, I really don’t think in line — but I have seen a few things that imply that maybe soft graphite sticks can be used that way? It’s that or something digital, but I really like the idea of tactile working.
