  • I wrote some Emacs Lisp to scrape the details from product pages I'd saved to Org so that I could review my options in one place.
  • We made zucchini-chocolate chip muffins with the rehydrated zucchini.
  • My Bricklink order arrived. A- helped me verify the pieces.
  • A- helped spread compost, top soil, and clover seeds on the grass.
  • We watched a squirrel go back and forth to get all the acorns we left in a cup on the deck. It hesitated when the cats came to watch it behind the glass door, but eventually worked up its courage and got the rest of the acorns.

  • W- bought some planks and made a platform for the kitchen cabinets. That way, things don't get stuck under them.
  • W- added more coat hooks at the back. He put the cubbies there, too. I cleared some LEGO off the floor.
  • I used the pedal to make it easier for A- to mute/unmute and raise her hand in Google Meet. Then I remembered the laptop has a touchscreen, so we used that instead.

  • We moved some cabinets from the basement to the kitchen.
  • I put the cast iron loaf pan on top of the other loaf pan. The weight helped keep the bread's shape.
  • I made oat milk. It was not as sweet as the one from the store, but I think I could get used to it.
  • I added carrots to the conveyor belt GBC and it worked.
  • I practiced stenography again, after a long time of not doing it. I still got about 45wpm on the basic exercises.
  • I worked on improving the data reliability and perceived loading time of a form for my client.

  • I converted details to an 11ty shortcode for easier tweaking.
  • I converted more of my sketch links to use my shortcode. Hooray for Emacs, wgrep, and 11ty!
  • I added an EmacsWiki page about Emacs coaching, and I edited a few more event-related pages.
  • I practised lettering and sketchnoted a menu of activities. A- found the lettering examples very interesting and kept encouraging me to do more.
  • A- wants to learn cursive. I decided to learn brush lettering at the same time, so we both get to work on our fine motor skills.
  • We followed some instructions to fold a paper airplane that's like a bat. I liked the way it flapped its wings.

  • I wrote a few 11ty shortcodes and Emacs commands to make sketches easier to embed into my blog posts.
  • We visited W-'s parents.
  • We made a LEGO vending machine, drink dispenser, and ATM following some video tutorials. A- made adorable beepboop sounds and pretended to cover her PIN.
  • We built and played with the LEGO Heartlake City Grand Hotel.
  • I used the LEGO power functions extension cables I ordered to connect the motors to the train regulator. Now the Great Ball Contraptions can run off wall power.
