I have kept practicing keyboard typing this morning. Learning process is frustrating. I have applied for couple of jobs but no responses yet. Wish me luck.

My parents are going home tomorrow, so we might go to have a lunch on a tower where we can see all over this city. Drinking too much lately.😇

I found a #knitting blog several years ago that I've since lost and been sad about that. It was by someone (female-presenting, I believe) who was knitting around-the-wrist swatches and wearing them for several days, to test blocking and wear and pilling and comfort.

If anyone can point me in the direction of it, I would be very grateful! I think of it often, and wish I'd bothered to bookmark it!

and the fruit is coming!!! Breakfast time!

This year I did get the blueberries netted and I have won over the blackbirds. (they still have at the raspberries, but there are more of those, so that's ok) My only challenge with the blueberries is not disturbing the bees on the lavender when I go to pick them. -that's a nice problem to have and as long as I'm quiet and slow moving, the bees don't mind me.

Sometimes I wonder if my neighbours are deaf.🤔

Sure, I never practice piano after 10 p.m. and generally don't make other noises. But still. Not a single complaint or even an acknowledgement.

Except for that downstairs neighbour, when he once asked with a smirk if I was the one who played "Seventeen Moments of Spring" theme. Can't shake the feeling he was laughing at me. :/

Fun fact. My manager has repeatedly pointed out that I lack in the teamwork department and need to work on my collaboration skills. However, 90% of "thank you" cards I receive from other employees via the corporate acknowledgement system are for the Teamwork.

I might try to get a job at a call center which pays better than the average. My typing is improving thanks to mastodon but I got some weak spots like ; ; ' ,.

First of all, I have to update my resume. I already feel lazy though. My parents are going back to Japan in a week. It means my guiding job will be over. I guess it is time to work.🙄

It's rare to see a green LaFerrari and I love it.

So my workshop got broken into last night. The alarm we'd just recently installed was deafening and scared the intruder away. In fact, he only got one foot in the door and ran. It also alerted and scared the entire neighbourhood.

All in all, the alarm system worked and was well worth the investment. Nothing was broken or stolen other than the broken lock he hammered off which has been promptly replaced.

Lesson: Don't fuck with my shop. It will make you deaf.

Please hire me.

I'm disabled so I can't do physical work anymore, but I can do a great many things. Including actually make good schedules and planning itineraries and customer service and communication things.

Thanks

I did not know the expected tip here in Toronto is 15%. Yeah I saw many machine had options no tip, 15%, 20%, and 25%. I tipped 10 % all the time by hand as I do in my home city.😇

After I came the city from Niagara fall, I tried Izakaya. The Izakaya did not have many options as listed on the wall, so we had only Sunday special Sapporo beer and some of appetizers. I asked my parents to go to a Ramen shop after.

Going back home this evening!! I am kind of missing my home city.
