As it’s been below freezing here for the last 24hrs, a lot of time has been spent snuggling with Mabel. She did want to go out though. I took some photos of her & she stopped to pose for one.

For today’s thing-a-day, I made a small game in Processing. It took me a few hours. The theme was “The earth is flat”. This was also a game development challenge submission, though I went over the allotted time. You can

Day 11: Cross Stitch Jug (…teapot.. watering can??)
