The problem with an early-afternoon bike ride is that now I want a mid-afternoon nap.

*slaps roof of Tennessee* this bad boy can fit so many Nashvilles in it

I finally wrote the thing for work that I have been procrastinating for a week on. I managed to bang it out in about 45 minutes and it's not terrible.

Someday I will figure out how not to do this to myself. I am guessing this won't be that day.

Check out this talk about information security, through the lens of the Harry Potter series:

The speakers are 14 and 11, and pretty amazing!

Took my oldest son to aikido weapons practice this morning. He was very nervous at the start, but afterwards said he'd had a great time and wants to keep going, so hooray! More aikidoka!

Stayed up too late last night, far too sleepy this morning. Luckily there is coffee and ice in the house, I just needed to figure out how to combine them.

I don't think the number of things I've accomplished today matches how tired I feel.

Took my son to the park to meet his friend. Of course 20 minutes after we arrive, it starts to rain.

Gonna be a cold bike ride home.

This is going to be me, all summer long.

To celebrate the end of the year, we ordered a special cake for the boys. I present, the Cauldron Cake: chocolate cake with candy all over, to look like a witch's cauldron.

Not one but two online graduations today (5th grade and 8th grade, both my sons are moving to new schools in the fall).

I'm not getting any actual work done, am I?

Today's baking 

Strawberry pancakes, sourdough chocolate chip cookies, and I'm halfway through Hokkaido-style milk bread. Another hour of rising and then baking and we'll see if it's actually as good as the real thing.

It's getting too hot to bake all Sunday, and yet the sourdough still needs to be fed weekly. What am I going to do until October?

So. Much. Baking.

But now I have fresh bread and lemon meringue pie and chicken and potatoes and bok choy for dinner and I want to fall over instead of eat any of it.

Good news! My fancy vacuum cleaner is working again.

Bad news! The process of disassembling it to fix it left huge dust piles all over.

Good news! My fancy vacuum cleaner is working again.

Today so far: picked up vegetables from the CSA, trimmed my father-in-law's hair, went to the hardware store, worked in the garden, worked on the kids' she'd, baked biscuits, cooked dinner, prepped tomorrow's sourdough pancakes.

Today next: run an RPG online for my wife and friends, eat dinner with family, sleep like the dead.

Today sensei ran an online conditioning class. I am so happily tired now, it was nice to put my gi on and sweat a bit.

I miss so much. I can't wait until I can go back to my dojo.

Four day weekend was wonderful, but now today I realize I have no idea what I was working on last Thursday and I'm not sure what to re-start.
