Stuff I Did:

I have been tired this week! I’m not working that many hours, but it sure feels like I am.

  • Wrote 4.25 hours and did 8 hours consulting work
  • Wrote up my backyard garden installation 🏑
  • Watched a super interesting presentation about politicized design
  • Started cleaning out a room we’ve used for storage and gave away a bunch of stuff on Buy Nothing πŸ’ͺ
  • Sewed buttons onto two coats that have been waiting for five years πŸ˜… Also neither fits so I’m donating them πŸ˜‚
  • Realized that my backup harddrive had my only copies of some old photos, so I copied those over to OneDrive
  • Subscribed to Bitwarden Premium and ran some password reports, and my work is cut out for me — I’ve been using strong generated passwords for years, but apparently have a lot of old accounts from when I did not 😬
  • Drew a birthday card for a friend — first time breaking out the oil pastels in years!
  • In-person doctor’s appointment πŸ˜‘
  • One walk with a friend
  • Baked banana bread and made oatmeal bars
  • Made a bunch of dinners and lunches so we could eat out less — mujadara from leftover rice and lentils was a success


  • Read Saga Volume 10Β and Convergence and For the Throne
  • Started reading Stolen Focus and This is What It Sounds Like
  • Continued reading How to Calm Your Mind
  • DNF’d Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow and The High Commander’s Mate
