Very productive during the little one’s nap time. Made a batch of rhuberry strawbarb jam, and a batch of peach jam.

I’d tell you a joke about time travel, but you didn’t like it.

I recently finished reading Patrick Rothfuss’s book, ‘The Name of the Wind.’ It was one of the best fantasy books I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put it down, it has been a while since I’ve been drawn into a book as hard as I did with this.

Made a gingerbread house for the first time in forever. Next time we’re making our own gingerbread so it’s actually edible when it’s done.

Watching the original Thomas and Friends show, shot with the model train layout. It is weird to hear a children’s show narrated by George Carlin.

Before March, I’d drink a pound of coffee at home in a month. Post March, it’s a pound in two weeks.

Sometimes it’s the little things. We’ve had this coat rack for a few years now, but it’s never been hung because it was way too long to fit anywhere useful. This summer I took it apart, and cut 3in off both ends, and installed next to the dining room door.

Remember when the Macy’s Day Parade wasn’t a giant ad for Verizon? I think I’ve seen more ads for Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband than parade floats, at about a 5:1 ratio, if not higher. And this AR stuff is obnoxious.

Bought an empty ink bottle to swap from the horribly useless squat Sailor bottles. This new bottle is so much nicer.

Part of my Fountain Pen Day order arrived. Still one more package on the way.
