We were wondering why the sky seemed "clear" last night at soccer but almost solidly white/gray and hazy, it looks like the wildfires have made their way to the east

First day of school! has 1 hour with @beth at the Discovery School this morning and I get the one at Fox Hill tomorrow.

Actually think we might get the swing set built this weekend O_O Done for the day but the main structure is almost finished, then just the catwalk/swing side.

Day 1 of the swing set is down! helped me move everything to the barn and organize the parts, and we managed to get the ladder built. Loving the massive workspace, this is the first time we’ve used the barn for anything and the little guy got a of me this time 😛

Our tomatoes are finally turning! I think we started them late and planted them late but I think we’re gonna get them all in this season.

We got the new playground pad leveled 🙌 Can’t wait to take a few days off and build the swing set tempting me on our driveway this past month.

Had this amazing torta setteveli cake yesterday for my birthday, ❤️ @beth. Probably going to be eating for another week too 😛

I love and , their layoffs this week and new direction is worrying though 😞 I put a lot of thoughts down in my second blog post on what I think they should be doing:

Giving dad a little break in the car with some Captain Planet 😜

We moved the picnic table to a shady spot and were actually able to eat dinner outside 😜

First post on a new blog, finally putting down some thoughts on free speech/social media censorship I’ve had for a while:

Homepage version 7 is up at with a bold new look 😜 I’m hosting it on DigitalOcean along with this instance and really like the platform.

“When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them.” ―John Ruskin

O_O can't remember the last time we had a forecast like this!
