Mourning Dove

April 28, 2017. Finished the design of my newsletter today and advanced a bit in coding. And took this photo of a beautiful mourning dove that I think is nesting in the eaves of the house.

April 26, 2017. In the back yard next to the house a plant springs anew among the dead stalks of last year. Ah, I love spring. Had big plans for today, but needed to sort out a bunch of gRSShopper bugs and update everything on GitHub.

In / Out

April 25, 2017. I've never seen anything in this box, and I doubt that it is used any more. Spotted in the halway outside my office. One meeting today, and a chunk of the day spent watching a video on open practices, but otherwise work without progress (and SourceTree mysteriously stopped pushing files up to GitHub).


April 24, 2017. Lexi isn't actually guilty, but she certainly appears guilty as she hovers near the power bar. Busy day today with minimal progress.

April 23, 2017. This is the Chrysler Community Centre in the foreground and the local church in the background, courtesy of my 37 km bike ride to the town and back this afternoon.

The Chicken

April 22, 2017. I ddn't sleep at al last night. So instead I listened to the Blue Jays game - it started at 10:;00 p.m. and ended at 3:36 or something like that. And was, happily, a win. But that pretty much erased any ambition I had for today. We got this chicken at the craft fair in Moncton when we bought our house there in 2001; now, a bit faded, it hangs in our Casselman kitchen.

Iron Art

April 21, 2017. Today was dentist day. Any thoughts I had of working evaporated after my morning appointment. This is some iron artwork in the dentists' washroom. I'm not complaining; he did excellent painless work. But going to the dentist still takes a lot out of me, just because of the stress.
