Personal update, moving out 

Ready to move! The last stuff is packed, the dehydrated snail friend I found on the hot balcony yesterday was freed in the (now wet again) grass, and I'm just waiting.

Personal update, flat flooding situation 

The inspector they made come from the other side of the country was there, and they confirmed that the flood was coming from the open valve in the photo, which I actually did put in :blobsleepless:

It was about 2 years ago when the part in the toilet reservoir broke and I couldn't close the water supply, so a neighbour helped me and put this in the wall to stop the water. I thought about buying a part to close the open pipe… and forgot :blobugh:

Mushroom growing 

I was too lazy to take a picture the last two days but they keep growing! Probably at most tomorrow they will be ready.

Mushroom growing, potentially gross substrate picture 

I came back yesterday afternoon to a new growth!

Mushroom growing 

I had opened the second side of the bag, but after two weeks the was nothing, so I opened the box and found a couple of mushrooms from the original side, fully grown and with spores dropped under them.
But also with some green mold on the surface, which I scrapped off. Them I put back the original side in front of the opening and had to go catsitting for a couple of days!

I saw a video showing magnetic field lines during breakfast and it was pretty, so I spent 17 hours doing my own instead of anything else I had to do today :shrug_r2:

But it's "for my thesis" so it's ok :blobcatderpy:
(And now it's 5am and uuuuhh)

Mushroom growing 

And he's when I cut them off January 31st!
So it was 7 days between the moment I saw the first fluff-looking hyphal knots (if I'm using the word correctly) and the harvest.

Mushroom growing 

I just realized that my laptop has a sd-card port, so after some fumbling to mount it I got the pictures of the mushrooms!

So here are the ones from January 28-30, starting the day after the cauliflower-looking last picture in the thread.

Mushroom growing (potentially gross substrate picture) 

They more than doubled in size since yesterday :blobcatcoffee:

Mushroom growing (potentially gross substrate picture) 

15 hours later update: the bottom ones are starting to take their yellow color! Compared to yesterday evening they look less like cotton balls and more like cauliflower.
Also, many more tiny balls appeared on the rest of the surface, notably in the part I was worried about, so I guess it's all good!

(I have a mosquito net on top to keep the annoying tiny flies from my plants away)

Mushroom growing (potentially gross substrate picture) 

I was afraid yesterday that I had kept the substrate too wet (didn't have a mister so I was putting maybe too much water) and the surface was getting covered with white mold, but I think it's the mycelium :thinking: There are some pins appearing inside the white fluff so it should be good.

Otherwise, there is definitely something growing on the bottom, and they doubled in side since yesterday :D

Mushroom kit (potentially gross substrate picture) 

I got a mushroom kit! Those are golden oyster mushroom, I don't think I ever ate some, and I'm quite excited to see how they grow.

Also I'm looking up if there is any way to transfer them to a different substrate once the kit is not growing anymore, because then I would get an infinite supply of tasty mushrooms and that would be great. Also I could maybe probably the original substrate to give to other people :blobcatthinkOwO:

I don't think I did a fanart since I was 14 but my officemate made me watch Q-Force and said Stats reminded him of me, and indeed she's cool so I drew her.

I tried repairing again an old pair of pants by patching a broad tear on the top of the leg, it's way too ugly for the time it took me but as least I have five pants again now. It wasn't a convenient area to reach, so I'm happy I didn't stitch the two sides of the leg together :blobcatpat:

I was walking around today, so enjoy the view of the remains in Elsass of a bridge built by romanian prisoners of the germans during the first world war (to bring weapons to the french front). People still use the way when the water is a bit lower!

I'm unexpectedly catsitting this weekend! Meet Yılışık :blobcatlove:
She needs to be kept separated from her brother a few days until a veterinary appointment so she had a long journey through town today.

But also look at this! I was struggling with inkscape and my wavy surface looked horrible, now I have a cool 3D (although not vectorial) drawing, in perspective, with the correct font at the correct size to go with the rest of the documents.
It was a pain as the 3D module is not clearly enough documented that I understood how to use the functions (maybe if one knows c++), I had to find other people's code to copy, but so worth it :blobcatcoffee:

Work stuff 

I don't want to be too happy too early and curse it but I think I am measuring *something*, there are some oscillations in this noise :blobcatsurprised:

Waste of time according to some maybe :blob_cat_sip_glare: (yeah I'm still salty at my supervisor's comment), but it feels nice and motivating to be taking notes in a cool environment.
I don't want to be miserably focused on productive stuff all the time! Let me find joy in esthetics where I can.
