Lazy Saturday


I made some waffles for breakfast this morning. I fed my sourdough starter a bit extra last night. I took the discarded portion of my sourdough starter when I fed it this morning and added some crushed up sugar cubes. The resulting waffles were...very pale but still cooked and tasty. More savory than anything.

I handwashed some pots and pans while I was making coffee for me spouse and letting the waffle batter rest.

After breakfast I poked some more at some code for a post on my other blog. Some friends were kind enough to do a quick code review that I think better it better.

Did some garden bed planning. We are adding a second raised bed in a different location. It will be interesting to see how this one compares to the first bed.

I took a nap, which was nice.

I also did some sketching for a table for my gaming room. Mostly the legs and how I want to make them.

I did minimal helping my youngest make dinner. She did well.

Then I just watched some youtube, put the kids to bed, make a preferment for some pizza later this week, and got this post ready.

Oh, and I lamented people's reaction to stay at home orders and the incompetent or uncaring Trump adiminstration's handling of their covid19 response.



I need to create a better blogging habit. Mostly to do something like my buddy genehack with his blog but not with a separate blog.

I did finally get around to standing up a blogging idea I've had for a bit. Open Source Gamer is an outgrowth of a talk I gave at TPCiP in 2019. Slides.

Work from home is going ok. I'm settling into a new rhythm. My setup is mostly sorted out. I did find a couple of Logitech M570's in a spelunking trip into my tech pile. They had some gunk on the mouse wheels. I cleaned them up. I quickly figured out why the first one was in the pile. The left mouse button didn't work. The second one worked well. It replaced my Logitech Cordless Trackman Wheel.

On the home front, the kids made dinner tonight so that was nice: mac and cheese, and kebabs.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and where a damn mask.
