A belated photo of our lovely new front yard design! We couldn’t be happier with the way it came together!
Nice! For my blog I have a Calibre db containing metadata, covers, etc, for books. Then I wrote a Jekyll plugin that uses calibredb to pull the data out and populate my pages at build time. This reminds me I need to write a post about this…
Finally got around to planting my first little pot of succulents! My home office now looks just a little less sterile.
First butterfly of the season, a beautiful Morning Cloak. Spring, you’ve finally sprung!
Very nice intro piece on capital ‘S’ Stoicism and how deeply its misunderstood. I wouldn’t label myself a Stoic–I don’t spend nearly enough time on the topic–but it’s had a very profound effect on my own life.
Nothing better than a summer day in Alberta.
Another pair down! This yarn had been in my stash for a couple of years now, so it’s nice to get them done. Post to come with details, including how I converted this cuff down pattern to toe up.
How the heel has turned!
A lot of things I post to Twitter start as notes on my blog so I host the content, but right now I don’t link back from the tweet to the note as I find it messy.
#nostalgia is a dangerous drug. I don’t tend to romanticize the past, but as I get older and more and more of my past is memorialized on the web, it’s really easy to fall down the rabbit hole. Rewatching #HaltandCatchFire definitely doesn’t help!
I think I’m starting to understand the attraction of retirement, or at least sabbatical. Knowing I can just read or write or listen to music or play guitar and not feel guilty about the other things I’m not doing is just wonderful!
Great piece on Brave. The Freeloading argument isn’t accurate, but the rest of it is spot on and highlights how Brave is regressive and disempowers content creators.
Just finished my 1st viewing of my favourite Christmas movie: “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”. Happy 30th anniversary, Griswolds!
