April 1, 2020. It was a nice day today but I was tired and it was a bit cool so there was no chance for a bike ride. So I stayed inside and worked all day from morning till evening, playing No Man's Sky after supper. https://flic.kr/p/2iLHAHY

March 31, 2020. Today was a day of four meetings, all on Zoom. Also a day of full sump pump operations. I'm feeling the effects of social distancing. But I'm still doing better than most, a fact not lost on me. https://flic.kr/p/2iLJMyz

Sump

Image
March 30, 2020. A sump is a hole in a basement to catch water. You use a sump pump to remove that water. When the sump pump fails, you get basement water. When it happens during a pandemic, nobody responds to your calls. This little Canadian Tire replacement burned out after a few hours. https://flic.kr/p/2iKoxMd

Feeding

March 28, 2020. First thing this morning we took the kittens for their booster shots. Then I cleaned out the bird feeder and stocked it up again. Also, we went into the city for prescriptions. Also, went to the Pet Valu for kitten toys and scratch pads. And we went on a milk run. The rest of the time I spent in my home office working. As I wrote on Mastodon, it felt like a work day today. https://flic.kr/p/2iJUgeC

Whissell Creek

March 27, 2020. I took a short lunch-hour ride to St.Albert and back; this is Whissell Creek where it crosses Guerin Road just north of St. Albert. Spent some time this morning documenting my Covid-related work for the purpose of obtaining proper time codes; spent the afternoon doing said work. https://flic.kr/p/2iJRsgv

Home Depot

March 16. 2019. Logged on this morning to a 'president needs this by noon' moment. A few meetings and it's all sorted with a good result. I like that we can deliver on a dime when we need to. Took a quick run into the Home Depot for furnace filters and bird seed. That plus the usual online work was my day. https://flic.kr/p/2iJBEZd
