Song: Music from Stardew Valley (video game)
There’s not much going on. I’ve been keeping busy with a lot of stuff but I seem to be flitting back and forth a lot again and not making much progress on any of them.
J’s still working from home, which has been wonderful for me because even being down the hall from her is pretty swell. I try to do some quiet-ish stuff and stay out of her way while she’s working, and I think things are working out well so far.
My mom called today with some great news – a family friend from long ago who has cancer found out that chemo is working so she won’t need radiation and can even ease back on some of the medications. Mom is very happy and I think that she and Dad want to make the drive out to visit her once things have quieted down. I’m very happy about it too and I hope that things continue to improve for her. I guess her brother is planning to move into the same complex she lives in which will be really good for both of them.
I finished Disco Elysium, and it was amazing. What a fascinating world, characters, story, skill tree… even the items you can collect and use or wear are really different than usual, especially considering the character you play is a police detective. I mean “track-pants-and-mesh-shirt-and-cavalry-boots-and-fedora-and-bag-full-of-recycling-and-clipboard” different. I’m already looking forward to playing it through again.
J and I have been enjoying playing Stardew Valley in the evenings. It’s a nice, relaxing way to hang out and chat about whatever while saying hi to cute little virtual chickens. Seriously, the virtual chickens are pretty darn cute:
Tomorrow I have another telephone appointment in the afternoon, which will be fine. Other than that, I’m going to see about doing something about my crappy attention span and actually get something done.
