Greenbelt

Image
September 24, 2020. Today wasn't especially productive as I messed around with configuring my browser extensions and wrote some posts and did some background reading. Lunchtime we went in to the Costco; this is a photo of Ottawa's greenbelt on Anderson Road where we were waiting for a construction delay. https://flic.kr/p/2jKUgbE

Organic Fudge Bar

Image
September 22, 2020. I have no idea what makes it organic, but it's lo-cal, and I have two a day. I should probably cut back to one. Today was a meeting day, and in between meetings I caught of on email and my newsletter. https://flic.kr/p/2jKtEL8

Frozen Tuna

Image
September 21, 2020. This is a piece of frozen yellowfin tuna. I have one piece each day - or sometimes haddock or cod, but usually tuna. In the past I've also eaten frozen salmon and scallops, but there were issues of these thawing and being refrozen at Costco. Today was a solid work day, doing funding proposal evaluations in the morning and on a data literacy project in the afternoon. https://flic.kr/p/2jKanwQ

Tomato

Image
September 20, 2020. This is a roma tomato. I try to have two of these each day (sometimes I run out, and sometimes Costco is out of stock). Today was a quiet day - I wrote a section on a paper, watched the ball game, that's about it. https://flic.kr/p/2jJUTPL

Taskmaster

Image
September 18, 2020. I've been enjoying a number of British comedy shows on YouTube recently, including '8 out of 10 cats does Countdown' and 'Taskmaster' (they're delayed by about three years, so the current events shows are useless). Today, as I stated in a Twitter post, I spent the day working on a promotion case, as I said, my least favourite activity. https://flic.kr/p/2jJuJhb

The Metro

Image
September 17, 2020. I spent a good ten hours writing my post 'Boxing gRSShopper' but it was crucial to have a record of the steps involved. I took a break in the middle, though, to go to the store; this is me sitting in the car waiting for Andrea in the Metro parking lot. https://flic.kr/p/2jJuDHr

Emma Saying Goodbye

Image
September 16, 2020. Any time I go to the basement or to the garage Emma scoots over to say goodbye to me through the stair railing. Her choice of railing isn't always smart; there's a 12 foot drop under this bit of railing (the cats have torn down the cardboard barrier, as you can see on the floor). GitHub recorded 66 contributions from me today, though most were minor bug fixes, as I finalized the code for my first interation of gRSShopper in a Docker container. https://flic.kr/p/2jJuv6g
