Apple Season

Image
September 15, 2019. I finished assessing the last of the proposals and then headed out cycling on a cool crisp afternoon. Quite by accident I visited two apple orchards; it's full-on apple season and people are able to pick their own. The corn and soybeans have also done very well this year. 66 km for a total of 2146 km on the year, a new record for me. https://flic.kr/p/2hggfCC

Paper Wasp

September 14, 2019. I spent the day today reviewing and grading entries to an education innovation contest. I also watched the ball game (the less said the better). And I took a quick walk in the back yard to photograph this paper wasp in the asters. https://flic.kr/p/2hfsygH

Hyperspace

September 13, 2019. Got two paper revisions done and sent today, which make me happy. Now I'm almost set top start on something new. Tonight: No Man's Sky. This is my space ship traversing a black hole on the way to Galactic centre. https://flic.kr/p/2hfsvmV

Jelly Bellies

Image
September 12, 2019. We were in a bad state when Costco stopped selling Kirkland Jelly bellies, but we've discovered that the Bulk Barn has them, so we can satisfy our addiction (we both eat them). Not terribly productive today, but I wrote some notes on blockchain, so that's something. https://flic.kr/p/2hezJdK

Goldenrod

Image
September 11, 2019. I sat and stared out the car window at the goldenrod on the front lawn after getting back from taking Polly to the vet. The reason why I like living out here in the country is that it is so full of life. Nothing more important, really. https://flic.kr/p/2heaTJ9

The Travel Medicine Clinic

Image
September 10, 2019. I'm preparing to travel to Cote d'Ivoire in October, and part of the process involves vaccination for yellow fever, which I arranged today. I also finished revisions on a paper, so hey, two productive days in a row! https://flic.kr/p/2hdCDv3

Coneflowers

Image
September 9, 2019. Today was a good day. I got stuff done. I did a podcast interview. I wrote a post. I took this photo of coneflowers in our back yard. I have more work to do today, which I nay or may not do, but it feels good to be productive for a day. https://flic.kr/p/2hdqiGc
