A very good weekend


This past weekend was a very good one, and I'm going to tell you all about it.

We weren't planning on driving out to the country to visit my mum for Easter. We had made plans to go to Whistler for a day instead, to give @Aila Pup a new place to explore (we've been trying to plan more enrichment activities for her, but it's tricky when we can't take her on public transit. So we have to plan day trips and rent a car to do most of these things). But as the weather was forecasting rain we decided against it, and thought going out to visit my mum in one of my favourite places in the whole world would be a fantastic idea.

[Quick interlude: There's some unfortunate stuff happening right with my mum and her housing situation. She's lived in the same house for at least fifteen years, in the same neighbourhood for twenty, but due to some unfortunate conflicts with her housemate and former friend she may end up losing her home for no good reason.

Hello, Nerdica!


Hello, all! I'm an artist/writer/comicker who makes art and comics. You can check out my website (http://liquidflare.net/) for more. I've been pretty active on Mastodon this past year (https://mastodon.art/@rheall) as well as Pixelfed (https://pixelfed.social/Rheall) and I deleted my FB account earlier this year, so I've been interested in trying other social media alternatives.

I honestly don't now how often I'll use this page… the big draw to FB was having all my friends/family there to talk to, and I doubt any of them will join Frendica without tons of prodding. Still, I might use this to make more personal posts and try to get some of my Mastodon friends to join me? Who knows. XD

Also check out my new webcomic, Sam the Chickadee (http://www.samthechickadee.com), a sweet and wholesome comic about a slightly magical chickadee and his friends. It's on a short hiatus right now, but I'll get back to it again in a month or so! And you can still read through the strips I've already posted. :)

I hope you're all well! Thanks for being here!
Introductions

Ingo, thank you for the kind welcome!

It's been interesting navigating the many different social media alternatives these last few months… I really do like Friendica a lot, feature and usability-wise! I'll stick around a little while and see what I can make of it. I do really like the ability to follow RSS feeds as well as Diaspora feeds and whatnot!
