Pinned toot

Doing another to pin as some things have changed.

I'm Taryn, I live in Adelaide, and I'm a stay-at-home mum with a toddler. I'm very tired.

When I get time, I like to draw cartoonish pictures with semi-realistic features. I also like to make things. Sometimes I like to play games.

I'm cis, probably ace, and recently diagnosed with ADHD and autism. She/her, I guess.

I also painted the face back on the boy's cat magnet.

He loved this magnet so much as a baby that he ate the cat's face.

One of my few mum friends is right into it, and has been trying to encourage me for months. She popped by on the weekend and gifted me some rocks and paint pens.

There's a Facebook group in Adelaide that paints rocks and leaves them for people to find. I'm not on Facebook but I may do the thing. Perhaps it'll be a mystery for the group too.

The boy really enjoys Crypt of the NecroDancer. He can't play it, but he wants me to.

I have survived another round of Centrelinking!

I'm alive, I'm just not doing anything interesting so I don't know what to say.

I browned an entire block of butter to make browned butter and cream cheese icing with.

I was going to make masks today but the ADHD attacked so now I'm making a robot costume.

gross, animal death 

Loving the free pest control

Not sure about the brutality but let's face it the magpie is not going to be humane. My real problem is probably that I was working with food when I saw it.

OK. Can confirm that magpies definitely eat meat. One is on the neighbour's roof, killing and eating a mouse. I am both disgusted and impressed. Like yikes yay yikes yay

Told my mother-in-law that the boy got Respiratory Syncytial Virus and I swear THE FIRST THING SHE SAYS IS

ARE YOU GETTING ANTIBIOTICS?!?

ffs

My pain de campagne turned out alright and was very nice with roasted pumpkin soup.

The pain de campagne is in the oven, and when I'm done baking all of today's bread we're off to the Women's and Children's Hospital for a COVID-19 test. Boo!

I dunno if going for a run early this morning has switched on my ability to GET SHIT DONE or what but I am sure getting shit done.

The biscuits smell great. The stroganoff is mostly done. The sorbet is finally in the freezer.

Not even remotely ready for the hike though.

The biscuits are finally in the oven (they had to firm up in the fridge for an hour) and the beef stroganoff is ready to go into the "cooking robot" (as Mr Nearly-3 calls it) as well. So this way I can go out for a "hike" with him, and not worry about dinner, as long as I'm back at 5 to autolyse…

Well, I suppose we finished juicing lemons. The boy is very pleased with his fresh lemon water, even if it's insanely tart. But that's how he wants it.
