Natural cleaners (~) Show more
I recommend researching any 'natural and nontoxic' cleaner recipes that you come across because many that I see are either
-Ineffective because their ingredients quickly react to form an inert substance
-Actually contain toxic substances that should be handled appropriately
-Contain substances that when mixed release harmful gases
- Do not actually clean/sanitize the way they are claimed to
There are definitely cleaners out there that are made with common household substances (diluted vinegar is a better glass cleaner than Windex IMO!) but please, please do your research
Selected Roman holidays for February Show more
February was the last month before the new year in the old Roman calendar, and is heavily focused on purification — the month's name comes from februa (sg. februum), ritual objects used for purification, such as clean water, certain plants, or the famous goat skins used in Lupercalia. Most of this month's festivals center renewing ties with the living and the dead, reinforcing boundaries, and securing protection for city, family, and home.
🐐 #Faunalia (13): a minor festival honoring Faunus
🐺 #Lupercalia (15): a festival which includes important sacrifices and a city-purifying race around its walls
👻 #Parentalia (13—21): a festival focused on family grave tending; ends on #Feralia (21), a more somber occasion, and is followed by #Caristia (22), a joyful celebration of family with feasts, gifts, and offerings
⛔ #Terminalia (23): in honor of Terminus, god of boundaries, offerings would be given at boundary markers

There's so much snow melting and rain trickling down drainpipes in #Seattle that it just sounds like someone left a faucet on outside.
mastodon feature wish Show more
i wish mastodon would subtly highlight replies and boosts in different shades, like it does with dms. it would be nice to be able to visually distinguish all 4 types of message in the home feed.
the one INVALUABLE accessory this freaky-snowy February in #Seattle has been ice cleats.
I got them two years ago after I had a fall where I fractured a wrist, and they are how and why I was able to backpack groceries to my elderly parents who were stuck down an unplowed, hilly street with two cars this week.
And how I'm about to get out and about on frozen slush that my neighbors were too ignorant to shovel before it froze.
