    I have spent a frankly ridiculous amount of time on the premises of the Indy Airport for someone who's never been on a plane

    I have unpacked the sheep bag and sort of half-unpacked the backpack. I statted the yarn. I knit on the sweater. I tried to drop off the package, but ran into label problems. I do not have spoons for food assessment & planning. Stringbending & spinning will happen later - for now, I'm gonna lay down, and then start the spin when/if I feel like it.

    Soaking in the Cat Nap energy is almost more restorative than napping myself

    I seriously missed home. I really missed this bedroom. And it feels like a tiny extra special blessing that I came home the day after the heat wave broke, so I can enjoy open-window breezes!

    My expedition for rare (aka frequently out of stock) dye colors was successful!!! Probs not going to dye today, or at least not much, but now I'm not limited to whichever colorways don't need large quantities of those dyes

    I have gotten in a really bad habit of saying that things are "not for boys to play with!" or that "we need more food for boys" when I'm just talking about the cats. The first time I slip up and do that when Mac or Loro is over I'm gonna die.

    I have a LOT of thoughts and feelings about food, diet culture, accessibility roadblocks, and moral judgment, OK?

    I'm in that place where I know my wardrobe needs serious overhaul but I am also simultaneously the most difficult and least urgent member of the household to shop clothes for, so :/ I have a dream wardrobe, but I'm not getting there anytime soon. Gotta keep chopping away at making a workable one.

    (if anyone knows good resources or shopping tips for clothing that is both plus size AND polyester free, pls feel free to share)

    ecosites.org has an updating list of "eco-friendly" apparel companies - you'd need to check each individual blurb, most of them are like "100% organic cotton" but some of them are like ... "100% recycled from plastic waste clothes" too, and i don't think most of them explicitly include plus sizes in the blurb (sorry)

    i can't vouch for most of these, but i do actually really like the brand pact on that list - ngl their underwear is legit the most comfortable shit i've ever worn (95% cotton, 5% elastane, tho, is the make up of i think all of their clothes. idk if it being elastane and not polyester would be okay for you). i think they go up to size 20? and iirc, all of their clothing is supposed to come in every size they offer. they're also not a brand i'd call particularly cheap, although they do attempt to at least try to be reasonably affordable, but everything i've bought from them has been of excellent quality - the stitching is super sturdy, and their women's clothing doesn't suffer from the perennial "too thin, wears out in a hot second" problem, and can quite easily last you several years
    the underwear is super breathable, if you're someone like me who sweats and gets pimples there easily, despite feeling quite solid - and i also have a very acidic vagina, and have historically measured the life of my underwear in weeks until it eats clear through the gusset. these last 6 months easily, and without being uncomfortably thick or sacrificing how breathable it is. like i said, the most comfortable underwear i've ever worn
    fair indigo and goddess gear are also nice but GG is way further down on the pricier end of things - fair indigo starts at $40 but goddess gear starts at like $100 (fair indigo is still notably more expensive than pact, but not by a huge margin)

    (also, the links are fucking dumb, the amazon webstores for pact and fair indigo are stupid and coordinate sizes bizarrely. i advise shopping on their actual websites)
