More things I have learnt from physio - mainly notes to self. I suspect [personal profile] hagar_972 and [personal profile] taennyn may have useful experience here, where I'm just starting out on the same journey they've already been on.

Muscles in the thigh - VMO, lateralis, the big quad one, the sartorius one across, adductors on the inside, abductors on the outside. VMO needs extra strengthening due to hypermobility. The small stabilising muscles tend to give up, then the big muscles compensate, and that's why my hamstrings get tight all the time. Then the hip/bum ones like glute max and glute mede also need help, particularly the latter.

Making sure things activate in the right order is hard. If the lateralis activates before the VMO instead of at the same time, then my kneecap slides sideways and that's one of the reasons it hurts. Trying to activate the VMO first will retrain it so they both go at the same time.

Yoon Ha Lee, Ninefox Gambit (2016): usually I have trouble finding a title for a book post. This time, three came to mind: the one I've used, "the tactics of mistake," and "experimental procedures." Anyway. Kel Cheris begins as captain of a unit that gains strength and combat benefits from keeping rigorously in formation. After she attempts to solve a losing scenario creatively---and heretically---she's disgraced, but a bit more creative thinking makes her abruptly into a brevet general, the host-body to a dead mass murderer, Shuos Jedao. (Consider that many heads of units in wartime are mass murderers; though it isn't glorified here, it is ...quite present.) Kel command wants Cheris to subdue a heretical outbreak and retake the Fortress of Scattered Needles. Sort of. Well, the hexarchate, of which the Kel are one-sixth, doesn't like heretics because it messes with their calendar, but everyone (except Cheris, at first) is playing an extremely long game. Pass the metaphorical popcorn.
a bit more--not destructively spoilery (I think one cannot discuss this book at all without being *slightly* spoilery) )

As for this subject line, you know, don't you?

If you'd prefer an actualfax review to my untidy noodlings, try James Nicoll's, and if you don't mind implied spoilers for how Gambit wraps, here's his review of book two.

"Admit it Frankie, your ideas for naming diseases are shit."

"Because your ideas are always so awesome, yeah?" Frank shoots back. "Who thought it was a good idea to kill all firstborns in Egypt, huh?"

"Oh for - Frank, that was forever ago!"

"Don't make me bring up the dinosaurs."

Gerard looks guilty for a moment. "They never proved that was me."

Frank jumps up and points. "HA! I knew it was you, you fucker. Those things were cool."

"I didn't mean to. Besides, it worked out. The humans and stuff."

Though I don't remember which day, I taught myself from books to knit about ten years ago this month (and to crochet ~21 years ago likewise). yay.

The ghost shawl has been bound off and washed, and its upper edge has been reinforced. Reason adores its colors and shape, whereas I feel awkward however I drape it, but it seems a bit too nice for her current age. Pondering. In any case, its shape---a triangle so wide and springy that one could block the upper edge as a curve or V---is instructive when tied onto me or Reason: if I ever knit Shore Hap, as I mean to, I'll need to enlarge it. Shore Hap's span is given as 125 cm = 50 in; the ghost as knitted is ~6'6 = nearly 2 m across. Even so, my sticklike and short torso can barely tie on the ghost shawl in the Shore Hap photo's manner. Inconvenient shoulders, again---but I'm learning. (Someone with my shoulder circumference "ought" to be much taller for something the ghost shawl's shape/size.)

Viajante's yarn ball is too large for my business trip. Heh. It's the size of a small adult head---1600 m = 400 g at fingering weight. When I have a 32L-capacity daypack (a bit under 2000 in3), I don't want to choose between yarn and some me-compatible snacks. Instead, the current office project will travel (Rendezvous), since it's in the first of its slated two 100g skeins. Its complexity is restrained by my having placed a marker every other motif-repetition; at least it's motif-driven, not two long segments of lace to either side of a center stitch. Those are my two projects on wooden circular needles---that's the other consideration, of course, wood needles short enough to pass muster as non-weaponry. Who knows whether Rendezvous will be large enough for the shoulders of doom, frankly, but I chose the largest size for which I have yarn....

The cardigans are on hold due to summer heat, though I ought to start my mother's soon regardless. Lena is about 15 cm high---round and round we go.

So many photos. At least they're resized so they should load decently? If you want to see one larger, just click on it (or open in new tab).

old wooden sign with Beagle Pups For Sale hand lettered in black paint on a white background
Last Saturday, D went to an auction and his purchases included the contents of some sheds on the property, most of which was scrap metal (or is now anyway). He found this sign laying flat in one old cabinet, so covered with dust you couldn't read it. And now it's mine.

On to the garden pictures! )

Today's the kind of day that would be both better and worse if I were working for someone else. To be fair, that's true of most days, but this one is a little more evenly matched than the usual scale tip in favor of better self-employed. The weather has me in a serious case of brain fog and that completely saps my self-motivation skills, and going into the week without a specific schedule of things to accomplish hasn't helped (although they might just have been more things not getting accomplished, honestly). Being woke up between 4 and 6 am by pounding rain 3 days this week might also have something to do with it.

Fortunately, there's very little chance of rain for the next 7 days in the forecast, and tomorrow looks to be partly sunny, so that's a definite upswing. Today is full clouds after 10 in/25.4 cm of rain in the last 4 days: 5 in/12.7 cm the first half of Monday, 3 in/7.62 cm in 2-3 hours Wednesday, and almost another 2 in/5.08 cm in 2 hours this morning. Needless to say, we're a little waterlogged. Our property has been doing okay in terms of drainage at least, even with all the ditches* full and river up. The drainage tile we installed the last two years is paying off and the new raised beds are basically my favorite thing ever now.

*Shallow types and the ones deep enough to swallow an SUV because farm country in "former" swamp ground

Anyway, I didn't plan a lot for this week because I've worked a little ahead and wanted to use that cushion to catch-up on household chores and other random things while the weather was the inconvenient-for-work sort. Which means feeling guilty for not getting a lot accomplished is like feeling you frittered away a weekend reading when you'd planned to do spring cleaning; it's really not the end of the world, but I think I'm always discomfited by a drop in motivation, regardless of how often it happens. Gotta love social conditioning.

I have at least caught up on laundry, kept myself fed (D's been running on food we both contributed to last week and weekend, whereas I wanted to use some of what's coming out of the garden), and accomplished some low key volunteering and errands including Jack's annual check-up, so that's all something. Basically it's a brain squirrels situation where they're confused due to being atmospherically stoned. Or something. I have a half dozen tabs open of DW posts to comment on so if you get one of those, uh, hopefully they're coherent.

Don't I sound like exactly the kind of person that should be wielding sharp knives in the kitchen in a few hours? Tonight is Thai basil chicken (aka Gai Pad Krapow per The Woks of Life, which is the recipe I'm largely following, but using hand chopped chicken thighs and also jalapeƱos because I'm weak). This is the primary reason I'm growing so much Thai basil in the first place - I put in a few plants last year, made this dish, and fell absolutely in love. I've yet to see this type of basil available anywhere around me and I only sighted seedlings a couple of times in other areas of the state this past spring.

Ideally, I'll even have pictures to share tomorrow once the sun comes out. I mean, ideally I'd also have some recs and also clean the counters, scrub the other half the floor I started last week, etc., so we'll see how that goes but it could happen.

Your first wheelchair by [personal profile] kaberett was brilliant for helping me upgrade from Shopmobility's hire chair to something designed for active use and being pushed by the person in it rather than a carer.

The Spinal Cord Injury Empowerment Project by the University of Washington has excellent videos on wheelchair skills. The American accent and cheery tone grates after a while, but it's very useful info and nicely bite-sized.

I will never look at Indiana Jones the same way again.


For the first time this year at WisCon, there was a drabble challenge, with results posted in a collection at the AO3: WisCon 41 Drabbles.
I particularly enjoyed the drabbles by [archiveofourown.org profile] j00j and [archiveofourown.org profile] TheAndy, but am probably biased because they are friends.

It's a small collection, but one of high quality, and I hope that they do it again next year. The idea of collecting works created in the same physical location, over a specific period of time, is pretty cool. Also, I was at the Best Superpowers for Banging panel, which inspired the "Lube Jets" drabble. To say that the panel was hilarious feels like an understatement.
