I wanted to get some recreational coding done today, but that didn't happen. A few other things did, though.

Household things: I put up a new curtain rod for the blackout curtains in our bedroom, and did some lawn maintenance in the front yard. After initiating some mowing two weeks ago, last week's trip meant that a lot of progress got wiped away. More weed whacking and mowing have it looking okay, but still not great. In the backyard, [personal profile] temptingcuriosity has asked for the dandelions to be harvested for greens, so I'm going to continue with that tomorrow.

I found my copy of Sad Pictures for Children. It's such a strange artifact now. It's the printing of a webcomic that's been wiped from the web, and which may or may not have narrowly escaped being burned by the author after printing. But it's so beautiful. At this point it's one of the most difficult things to get that I own.

I also grabbed a copy of one of my Doom Patrol TPBs and read a bit of that.

When I settled down to code, I made the mistake of putting Cowboy Bebop on as "background." It was totally not background. It's still an incredible show, and I haven't watched it in a while, so it completely dominated my attention.

We watched the new Doctor Who, which I liked, and the finale of Bates Motel, which I also liked.

My impulse is to try to wrap this up with something I've learned, but striving for meaning in simple communication is one of the things that keeps me from posting anything.

I spent most of this weekend at Gallifrey One, but today was a day to catchup on housework, and it provided some new victories. We were supposed to get the washer and dryer installed today, but they delivery people couldn't do everything for us. The previous owner's washer and dryer had left some depressions in the floor that they didn't want to put the new appliances into, and the dryer vent wasn't properly attached. So much of today was spent going to Home Depot, getting a properly sized piece of plywood for the washer and dryer to set on, installing a new dryer vent and connecting the dryer to it.

Every time we take on a new task, it takes longer than we expect because I freak out and overresearch trying to be certain I understand all the parts. But so far I've been pretty successful. An earlier victory was in understanding what sort of wall anchors we need because our walls are plaster, not drywall. But with that knowledge, I installed a new shower rod and a few towel racks today in short order.

Over and over, I thank my theatre education. Set construction provides some great life skills. Hopefully I'll get some time to resurrect my costume-construction skills too.
