May morning snow…

While waiting for the kettle to boil for tea, I happened to look over at the outside door while giving one of our cats skritches.  The deadbolt was not locked.  As I drifted away from our biggest floofer to lock it, there it was–the foretold May snow.  I didn’t reach over to turn on the outside light to see how deep, but from what light was behind me it looks to be at least an inch, possibly two.

Weekly Site Changes Update: May 1-7, 2020

Trying to pick back up where I left off, which led me to realize I still have others from earlier this year sitting in drafts.  *eep*

Backdated changes made:

  • Added April 18th, 2020–Office Window View since I wanted to use the image anyway as it was relevant to a post I wrote this week.

Weekly Site Changes Update: January 3-9, 2020

I want to immediately point out a happy re-discovery: there is a very easy way to see all the tags one has used.  I had forgotten as I hadn’t looked for the overall list in a while.  This will make ferreting out near dupes and typos easier than I feared.  Hooray!  That’s one headache gone from the process later.

I know I said I was going to wait to do the weekly reports until I started dusting off unpolished content, but I have to admit keeping records help me remember what I’ve done in case I need to fix a foul up.  Thankfully the progress with the first step (Culling the Categories) is going much faster than I thought.
