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!
For once, I actually get my holiday image done on time, instead of publishing it in the early hours of Christmas morning. Everyone have a great holidays! Lineart courtesy Christina Weinman.
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.
I love to shop at Publix, if it wasn’t obvious already. Especially in the evening of the summer months; it’s a way for me to relax. I’m not an advocate for retail therapy, but when you’re at home quite a bit, getting out helps alleviate being shut-in.
When I went this evening and was about to leave, I noted this large anvil cloud forming in the distance. I was inspiring to look at, especially seeing it loom in the low-light evening hours. I’m almost certain I’ll see a storm wen driving home tonight.
When I was out for my evening exercise walk, this growing cumulonimbus caught my attention. Aside from it being an interesting sight, I took a snap as it’d be helpful when doing Ellowwood artwork (as it is a skyworld, after all).
I’ve seen this scene a number of times, but a lot of times I’m driving to not take a picture.I’m glad to actually have caught this phenomenon with a camera in hand.
Well, tonight it one of the first times in ages I’m able to relax on Christmas Eve. However, I was behind on art obligations, so I decided to poach off of my Mom’s computer to draw. Why? Well, it’s within tossing distance of the Christmas tree and the kitchen. That way I’m not isolated in my room, holiday togetherness and whatnot.
On a whim, my siblings and I decided to try the acclaimed Death Wish Coffee. The box just arrived this evening; so we’ll see how this stuff actually tastes. I wanted to try this in 2016, but there was a shortage and prices were quadrupled almost. So I’m glad it’s actually affordable this time around.
Unlike last year, I actually took some time to properly decorate my office space now that construction was done more or less. Since I did have a fair amount of work this month, I especially tried to make sure it looked real Christmas-y around the workstation, and even had a garland going around under the monitors! And while I did set up the community tree, I didn’t get to do anything community with it this year, unfortunately. I’ll try to do better next time!
Finally am on the road again after this long while! I’ll be sure to update you with anything interesting I see. While I’m slotted to help drive on the way in, that time is longer into the evening afterwards.
So for now, I get to nap and lounge on the backseat. While out of date, I took the smaller GPS and plastered it to my window so I can see a general trip progress. Hey, it works.
