Ep. 7 White House Farm / Battle Bonnet’s Finished!

So I recorded this a few days ago (and quality is awful this time around, sorry) , remembered it was still on my phone and went to transfer it and several other things off my phone. I didn’t see it and thought it’d glitched and not recorded and got annoyed. Just now while going through photos I found it so now it’s saving/uploading while I add the rest of the pics of this post. It’s going to be a bit photo heavy. Sorry. (lol my sweater’s shoulders are pointy. I wasn’t thinking and put it on the back of a chair at a restaurant and hadn’t tried fixing it before the video) Links are after the break. Pathfinder is also below the break.

I also forgot to mention that White House Farm is completely packed this time of year. Parking, shopping and donut lines were insane. I found a few pics and they’re unceremoniously at the very end of the video.

So I think I mentioned before that Mike’s mom is deeply patriotic and inherited my (previously Mike’s before that) old ipad 1. She happened to also mention that she liked plaid so we stole the ipad back since I needed to get a game save off it anyway, and I measured it to make her a neat little carrying case. It has double stitched seams, snaps holding down both the large main pocket flap as well as the one covering the little pocket for coins/chapstick? on the back. There’s also a spot for styluses. Mike and I each picked out a fabric and together, we settled on the plaid flags and gold stars. She ended up absolutely loving it and definitely cried upon seeing it. You can click on them for larger pictures.

Ep 6: Boring with lots of links.

My hair looks awful. I can’t decide whether to cut it again or let it grown out. That in-between phase sucks. Anyway… Sorry the audio is so quiet. Be prepared, it’s a little louder at the end. Also, I’m making custom thumbnails for all the videos.. I think only this one has shown up so far as this is being written. Hopefully they’ll all come up eventually.

Links, links, so many links.

Ep 4: Thanks

+ Coyotes were yowling again right before I started recording, but they quietened down. I wish my mic was good enough to pick the sound of them up.

+ Wow that’s a bad angle.

+ Sorry for the shaking, the way I had the tripod set up, the chair kept bumping it. Next time’ll be better!

+There was supposed to be music at the end, but my computer and I had a fight. It won.
