Felt like doing another intro style post

Linoleum print 

I'm done! I wanted it to be a little eerie and menacing, but he's a cheerful fellow isn't he

Todays ivy haul. I had already filled the bag from another spot so these will have to be picked up later.
I did the first round of clearing for one section (the second photo which was taken after i cleared the ivy). Ill have to go back and check for anything i missed and ensure the ivy on the trees is dying. But the bulk of the labour is done.
And i started on another patch (the third photo before i started any clearing). This is a really large patch that extends quite far along the trail so it will take a bunch of work to clear. But i got started at least!

A little video of me needle felting a peach!
It's the first video like this i've filmed on a a cardboard stand i threw together. It's a little wobbly and my head pokes into the frame sometimes.

I made a video of me needle felting a little peach. it's super cute and i'm happy to have finally set up a macgyvered cardboard phone stand to film with.
idk where to upload it though. I'm thinking of setting up a peertube account. any suggestions for instances? or other places to upload video

I'm starting to realize how normal it is for heteronormative people to downplay their platonic relationships to the almost authoritarian benefit of their one romantic one. As if their platonic relationships don't matter that much just because they can't fuck them.

That shit makes me sad.

menstruation + covid vax 

Oh hey there's an actual study gathering data on the menstrual side effects of covid vaccines: redcap.healthinstitute.illinoi

I just did the thing and they did a basically fine job of making the language in the survey gender-neutral so that's cool โœ”๏ธ

If you are a menstruator (past or present) and have had at least one vaccine dose, consider participating!

binarity is a ploy by big gender to starve off the small independent genders and consoliudate their monopoly

I made up a bunch of lip balms!
They're of coconut oil, beeswax and shea butter. I got a bunch of little sample tea tins from my buy nothing group.
I tried to infuse in scents of early grey, mint and lavender but they didn't take as strongly as I'd like.

I've always been entranced by cherry blossoms shedding their petals--it's a sight, petals flying through the air, filling the wind and lying fuzzy on the ground. This morning I watched petals falling from a tree near home, sparkling in the sun, and was reminded of floating dust.
