So yeah, I haven’t been posting here nearly as much as I should. Lots going on lately, between both jobs, Kate’s imminent departure for nine weeks, future brother-in-law home from Afghanistan, weather warm enough for biking, etc. You get the idea. Things are crazy.
I’ve been trying to find things to do while Kate’s gone — I’ll need the distraction because I’m going to miss her like mad. Sure, I’ll see her on weekends…but during the week, I’ll need stuff to do other than biking.
Thus, I’ve decided that I should learn to do a few things while she’s gone. The first thing I’m going to do is to get a cheap homebrew starter kit and start brewing some beer. That alone will be pretty cool. I’ve also wanted to start doing some light gardening in planter boxes out on our deck — just small stuff: peppers, spices, and oh, barley, which would be useful for the homebrew fun.
So those are my two big projects during May/June. I’ll probably have a few more going in here, but those will be more small-scale and related to things I already know. Things like re-skinning my e-commerce and social networking sites. Putting together a new font. Maybe crank out a couple of short stories. That sort of thing.
Regardless of distractions, it’s going to be a tough nine weeks.
