Stuff I was working on as the year ticked over (because we apparently don't do parties anymore).

December Homeschooling Miscellany

We didn't get to do our Solstice Wreath this year due to a little more craziness than usual.  But other stuff got done.

10yo figured out how to make fingerless gloves using her loomband loom and wool after watching a few Youtube videos:

Because they're apparently useful to have and I haven't done one forever (seeing as I've spent so much time redoing things).  Let's try a 5 year plan.

Kludgy OBS scene switcher for linux

0 comments

Edited 2017 Jan 7: made the scripts slightly more reliable (not relying on window ids) but they will now get extremely confused if there's more than one instance of Blender open

Because I'm not smart enough to get the MacOS version of the Automatic Scene Switching plugin for OBS Studio, I gumbied an easy manual one with bash scripts.

November Homeschool Miscellany

0 comments

We haven't really made good use of our zoo passes this year.  Hopefully this will be remedied next year.  10yo stole my phone to take a number of photos of things she considered cute and as we ventured into the Asian rainforest to see the Komodo dragon and the red panda it reminded me that there are a few sections we don't get to very often and we should probably make the effort to go into them.

Andrew, Megan, Magellan and Andromeda

The twins!

Magellan and Andromeda were identical twins and very close to each other.  Magellan was a bit of a wild child, Andromeda was much more sensible and down-to-earth.  They were kind of background characters before so not that well developed, even though Andromeda was going steady with one of my main characters.

October Homeschool Miscellany

0 comments

I spent most of October being out with shingles and a chest infection.  JJ managed to take some time off work during the worst of it but after that he was juggling full time work, homeschooling and generally running the house so don't think he really remembers specifics of any of the homeschooling stuff they did.
