I’ve said before I have tons of notebooks of all sizes stashed around the house. This is an old one that I found in a box.
It’s hard to believe there was a time when it made sense to have a notebook to write down your favorite URLs and passwords.
I don’t know if there’s anyone that still checks in here that doesn’t know me IRL.
Shortly after Thanksgiving my dad had a major health crisis and since then a huge chunk of my time has been a support system including much time at his side in the hospital. He’s not getting better or any worse – just a never ending series of decisions between terrible options.
Did I already post about this? Not intending to diss the neighbors because they are nice and friendly. This like a lot of my projects.
This dirt was deposited in April. I remember because we had that late snow and it looked like they had a giant snow mound in front of their house.
The dirt was there until at least August. It would have taken me that long, too.

During the summer I went for a lot of walks along all different parts of the neighborhood. It’s amazing how many people have vegetables or fruits right in front of their house or on the parking strip. I always like to check out what other people are growing and early in the season measure their progress to mine.
(I have no photos. Never occurred to me to grab a photo of a neighbor’s squash or blueberries.)
Twice in the past couple of months I have been asked to do a survey for an app I am already using and the survey asked me ‘how much would you be willing to pay?’ about 5 different ways.
Deer at Tishawnik.
Like how much would I pay for different additional features?
What would be the most I would pay?
If the app only cost x amount would I think that it was cheap and crappy? (My words.)
Am I supposed to be able to answer these questions? Especially when they are sprung on me in the middle of a survey?
I already feel like I am being monthly subscriptioned to death. There are extra features that I would pay for to use but I would not use the extra features enough to justify paying an even bigger monthly fee.
Also, pro tip: if you cancel a subscription, they always lure you back with a discounted rate.
Here’s another clip of Skunky out by the shed in September. Now we are getting a lot of opossum movement out there but so far I haven’t gotten a good clip.
TV Shows that you’d think I would like:
House of Dragons — watched one episode. Did not continue.
Ring of Power — didn’t even watch one. No interest.
Welcome to Wrexham — like way more than I even expected. Really good. Recommend. Don’t need to like soccer.
TV Shows I did not expect to like:
Reacher — haha. Watched one episode for curiosity and was hooked. Loved the cast and characters.
Star Trek : Strange New Worlds — it’s not that I expected to not like this as much as I didn’t expect to continue since my “to watch” list is so competitive. Loved it. Perfect to wind down after work. A problem is introduced at the beginning. In the middle things seem dire. By the end it’s all worked out.
