I had heard about Walmart deploying robots nationwide a few weeks before this, but I definitely thought that my local store would be the last to use or even accept one. Yet when I went into produce, I did see this QR code on a pole, meaning it was a reference point or a spot for the robot to use.

 

I’ve now yet to see this robot in action. Time will tell!

Dinner tonight was quite simple; it was just refried beans, canned nacho cheese and some tortilla chips. I didn’t arrange it too dressy as tonight will be my first DnD game ever! Well, a Pathfinder 2e game but still. You can see my dice that I had on hand; that was something I picked up on sale at Barnes and Noble, in 2016 during a trip with my cousin (which I may talk about one day). I’m glad it actually became useful, rather than just its intended use as a shelf decoration for Youtube.

 

Fingers crossed that this game goes well. I do regret not trying this sooner back in my 20s.

For the past 5ish years I”ve only had tiny, $10 bargain trees in my space. From my apartment to my bedroom, I had always resigned myself that I won’t get a full tree till I was living out on my own. This particular year I was given a partial gift of getting a tree for myself, as my room was now finished building.

 

The tree isn’t anything too special; just something that was on sale at Lowes. But the fact I could hang my own ornaments, decorate it how I like and not run out of room, it was real amazing. The best part was that I had a holiday theme in my office workspace, and I had a festivities-themed location I could retreat to. Often the family tree is in a messy location or there’s not a spot to sit, so this got around those difficulties quite well.

As fall hits here, we’re wrapping up our harvests. Most of the regular muscadines have been picked already, but the golden ones were sparse this year. Dad will need to come up with a solution. Still, they make for great pictures, have a distinct honey sweetness and are harder to find in the leaves. I managed to find these two on my evening walk before I went in for the night.

For today’s prompt, I was thinking about a fall festival for some reason (probably because of storywriting). So I went with a fall wreath, food and some gourds. Pumpkins and squash especially give me autumn vibes, and I enjoy growing them when able. This might be another one I end up coloring as well.

For today’s prompt, our old shed when I was younger came to mind, back when I was young. While we did clear the foliage later, we also did tear down the shed as it became abandoned for a bit. I did take some liberties with the design as I don’t quite remember what it looked like at the time.
