Emerrrrrging from the gloom* to post a plug for the Ancient Egyptian Daybook campaign on Kickstarter. The campaign, which is aimed to fund the creation of an academically authentic yet highly useable calendar based on the ancient Egyptian ones (yes, they had more than one), has already passed its original goal and its first stretch goal. We'd love to reach the furthest goal, which would provide enough money to create an app! So, granted most of the people on this journal already know about the project, but if you didn't, and if you think this is a neat idea, please consider chipping in and/or spreading the word on the internets. Thanks!

*Actually, things aren't gloomy at all; I just haven't pulled together the brain meats enough to post lately. :P

For your entertainment and education, a fascinating documentary on how an astronomical image enhancement engineer deals with one of the most challenging aspects of his job: space cats.

Think I did a little bit too much today:

- did Senut
- finished decluttering the front hall
- cleaned litterbox/changed litter
- dusted hall
- vacuumed and mopped hall floor
- vacuumed shrine room
- went for a walk
- picked up sticks on front lawn
- raked leaves
- recorded three new songs (but haven't had the energy or time to post them yet)
- started cooking dinner (though mimian ended up finishing it because I was running around all distracted)
- made a new printout of the State Rite
- did State Rite

I was getting really frazzled by the end of the day. Probably that's why it took me at least five tries to get the printout to come out right--I kept punching holes in the wrong places, so the pages wouldn't fit into the page protectors properly. Actually doing the Rite was restorative, though. ^_^

And now to bed. *thud*

Happy New Year! May your 2012 be filled with health, prosperity, and laughter.

And super-cute, super-fluffy snow leopards!

Accomplished today:

- did Senut
- did a small grocery run
- got my car washed
- did small organizational things (updated checkbook and credit card record, dropped Netflix back to streaming only)
- got the emptying and organizing of the garage very nearly done--enough that I can put my car inside, nekhtet!*
- cooked a Bast feast dinner (roast duck, mashed potatoes, glazed carrots)

Now I'm kicking back with a cup of Lady Grey tea and a cat, waiting until I have room for a chocolate pyramid (offered to Nut on Moomas ^_^ ). I'll probably spend the evening reading. Or maybe writing, if Meera ever gets her kitty butt out of the way.

* I keep walking into the garage for one reason or another, and every time I start in surprise and go, "Omigod! It's my car! My car's in here!" I suppose the novelty will wear off eventually....
