Elephants and my own blues have affected this week. I'm feeling mentally dull: the new-ish camera somehow just doesn't work with me in a way that makes sense. It's like the settings change with the phase of the moon or something. Anyhow, that makes me feel dull. And generally, i don't feel sharp.
I've a suspicion that if i was taking my antihistamine regularly it would help. So, there's that.
Work is OK. My boss and i had our review meeting that we'd forgotten -- oy, i forgot to do the acknowledgement, done -- and no surprises. I am eased that he's not harping on my communication anymore. If he wants to take credit for coaching me, fine, but the removal of significant amounts of stress has done most of the work. I can take comfort in being valued. I have an edge of bitterness about the title "architect" but i also have choices i could make to address it. Not right now.
I spent time pondering blogging last night. I certainly don't want or need something that replaces my community here. (I can barely ... i don't keep up as much as i wish here.) With respect to the architect comment above, i wouldn't mind having to learn a bit more python/css/html5. Prototyping skills wouldn't hurt me.
Sumac, what species would be best for both the edible fruit (as spice and extract) and for landscaping.
Sprouts, what seeds should i get for my long unused sprouter?
MUCH reflection on a future website. For $15 you can have a font made for you, and then turn it into a webfont!
And we finished Amazon's The Night Manager. Wonderfully intense and textured and delicious. Hugh Laurie's villain is insidiously smooth. And a pregnant heroine! Angela Burr for the win.
