Sometimes I describe our business as small batch locally produced artisanal drawing machines. There's more to it than that, and I probably shouldn't leave out the LEDs or mechanical computers. That said, these days it's pretty much all pen plotters all the time.

Kaylee has been needing a bit of extra attention this weekend.

Took advantage of the holiday weekend to prune the ascenders off of the plum tree now that its done producing. I love pruning! It requires your full attention. Tree looks pretty good now, too.

I like how I read a "there's too few women in CS" article and then post about obscure PLs and fanfic and all the femme-y tumblr nerds who love declarative languages show up in my mentions and have a tea party

Someone (Kaylee) has recovered enough to sulk that the emergency vet said she can’t have food yet after her sedation for x-rays and removal of a sewing needle from her mouth.

Someone else (Luna) is exhausted after being locked up all morning by herself while aftermath of a mouth injury was cleaned up and then having to supervise the return of a still-high Kaylee and worry about all these weird smells.

I cut up another half gallon of plums for the freezer. So many plums! We love our weeping Santa Rosa plum tree. It’s lovely and makes wonderful fruit.

I think I didn’t post a caturday picture. Here’s Luna being all sleepy today.

I have processed enough plums that we are down to one bowl on the counter and one bowl in the fridge (insert icebox joke here). There are only a few more plums on the tree. I have gallons of cut up plums in the freezer now.

Just over three and a half pints! (And one fewer bowl of plums on the counter.)

There's been a lot of discussion of the potential risks of menstrual cycle tracking apps in post-Roe America, because they create evidence that might be used to identify (and prosecute) women who become pregnant and terminate their pregnancies. 1/

I woke up an hour before the alarm to Kaylee (who is 15 lbs) sitting on my back snapping an elastic shoelace repeatedly. Of course I had already woken up two hours before the alarm to the insistent meows of little Luna who wanted snacks.

I've been working behind the scenes on an idea since before 2020. I need your help. Coney Island has venue space, transportation, food, & parking for the needs of a world class event. NYC needs Maker Faire. Like if you think it would work. Retweet to help me make it real.
