[Edited 6/5/2020: image removed]. Explanation here. Through this week, I am trying to be more aware of my own explicit and implicit biases. I am forcing myself to acknowledge how I benefit from and how I unintentionally encourage the broken parts of the system. I am learning which actions are meaningful and which are not.Continue reading
I want to try the breakfast sandwiches from Camellia Coffee but, until then, I suppose experimenting with making my own will have to do. Earlier this week we had two brioche-style buns (leftover from weekend burgers) and inspiration hit me… While cooking two chicken-apple sausage patties, I generously buttered and toasted the buns on the same griddle. SoContinue reading “This is just the (breakfast sandwich) beginning”
At 40 days the light deck is raised at the maximum. You can see how full the herbs grew out to be. There’s plenty to harvest (and use). As suspected, I enjoy having fresh cilantro readily available the most. Though the dill has been a very nice addition to our scrambled eggs, regularly.
The rosemary is still taking its time, which is fine. There’s no rush. I have been harvesting the dill (for scrambled eggs) regularly. So good. And the cilantro has come in handy for some tamales and burrito bowls. It’s really nice to be able to just pick what you want (and not have to buyContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 33”
I had to raise the light deck a couple times during the week. The dill and chives (as you can see) are skyrocketing upwards. The cilantro is filling out nicely. I may have to use some this week. Same with the Thai basil. You can see on the left that I started some green onionContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 26”
Not a bad start overall. The rosemary is coming in quite slowly but, it’s definitely making progress. I moved it from the back to front, switching places with the dill, to allow the dill more room to grow. The whole left side is shaping up nicely, with the cilantro starting to fill out a lotContinue reading “AeroGarden herbs – Day 20”
Tis hard to see the mighty prancing war horse, trampling the dying and dead beneath their merciless feet. No dear wife, near to speak a word of comfort. No living sister or Mother to administer relief in that hour the most sad in the history of humanity. O the humanity. O the horrors of war.Continue reading “Heaven grant there may be an end soon”
I’ll preface this by saying that I have no issue with people who upgrade their equipment on a regular basis. Nor do I have any judgement on how frequently people may choose to do so. Every person has different needs, choices, circumstances, and reasons; it’s important that we respect that and them. I tinker withContinue reading “I’ll take your discarded-too-soon cameras”
I love the resource that Who Can Use provides for web, user-interface, and user-experience designers. I find myself becoming increasingly passionate abut making the web (internet) a more inclusive experience, and learning how to do that. It makes me happy to see people putting together resources to help others do the same. Hat tip toContinue reading “Who can use”
This was a pretty easy going week. On Monday I felt energized and did enough to get ahead on both work and school fronts so, I found myself with a lot of spare time (good) to spend doing non-productive things (also good, IMHO). I spent an embarrassing amount of that time with the Nintendo SwitchContinue reading “Week of gaming”
The flowers line the walking trail that runs through my neighborhood.
