Okay this game has three graphics options and they are 'Fastest, Fast, Simple'. Halp I don't understand >.>

I found a barely used second hand treadmill at a great price so now I have a treadmill YAY!! Also it has a perfectly tablet-depth protrusion so I can re-watch BSG while walking 😁

Oh, and if you're in a few other parts of the world - Australia, France, England, southern and western California - waterblommetjies are apparently widely naturalised there, so you, too, can make a waterblommetjiebredie :)

Food (meat) discussion and pics - I was cooking a local dish with some indigenous stuff today :) 

The green things in the tub are waterblommetjies - 'water flowers'. They're a local pondweed native to this area - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aponoget - the indigenous Khoikhoi people taught settlers how to use it in stews and for medicine. The herbs are wild sage and an unknown (I get a bag of random herbs from local growers every week), and the third is the stew, called 'bredie', with lamb and potatoes.

As for more wholesome content, though, with Jaco and the dogs waiting for me in the car, I went into the pet shop to grab some bones for them and the woman working there told me she noticed them in the car there a few days back when Jaco went there (it's a little mall area thing) to buy something else, and was commenting on how well behaved they were in the car 😊

Angry encounter with white entitled prat at the post office... 

Also amusing, @warpgate9 was waiting for me in the car outside , I was texting him what was going on and he came rushing out for an opportunity to join in with yelling at this dude, but alas missed all the fun πŸ˜‚

Also the kid, who couldn't have been older than ~18 and really fucking schooled that guy, was amazing speaking up like that. What a champ.

I say "You’re standing there talking which is the exact time you SHOULD have a mask on, you're sending spittle into the air that we're all here occupying". He pulls his mask up and says "there, well done, well done you." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Then when he got inside and got served he pulled his mask down again to speak to the guy behind the counter...

He says to the young guy "who are you?", guy says he's sticking up for his mother who's inside the shop getting served, I tell him "he's a guy the same as you and if your opinion matters then his does too", then I see he still hasn't pulled his mask up so I ask him to please put his mask on. "It is on!", he says, mask under his chin. (cont)

Don't think I've seen anything whiter than this guy in a queue in front of me with his mask down under his nose practising his golf swing, gets a phone call then pulls the mask completely off to speak, yells at the people inside the shop we're queuing for to hurry up, a young guy standing outside asks him to please practice some patience.

Here, have a wholesome story to kick off your day.

"Meet the London Birdwatching Collective Founded by and for People of Color"

Took me a whole hour to draw that outermost later of petals, thanks to procrastinating on social media and watching bees and staring at the sky πŸ˜‚

Happiness is the sun on your back and a dog on your foot. Drawing outside, it's the first time it's been warm enough to sit outside for months. Hello spring!

Selfie, eye contact - gave myself a cut and a shave 😁

And now it's time to pick up another unfinished one that's been sitting around a while :)
