STOKED | about the weather that we had in June. I know the weather has been crazy and unusual in a lot of places recently, but for us, it’s been “unusual” in a good way. June was surprisingly mild here in the Central Valley, we even had a couple of days of rain. We’re often hit with the first triple-digit days in June, but we haven’t had any so far and I like it. It’s been sunny and pleasant with a bit of a (Delta) breeze here and there. Perfect, if it would stay that way. (Ha. Not happening, but one can wish.)
PROUD | to have hit another Peloton milestone with Tanja – 900 rides on the bike that goes nowhere. We still manage to ride together a few times per week and it’s one of the best parts of my week!
EATING | lots of salads. It’s something that I never get tired of during the summer months. There are so many variations you can make. What’s your favorite salad (or salad ingredient)?
MISSING | my family. I realized that today exactly one year ago was the day when my family arrived for our epic summer vacation. I cannot believe it’s been a year. Where did the time go? It feels like they were just here and I wish I could host a little get-together in our backyard again.
READING | “A Breath of Snow and Ashes“, book #6 of the Outlander series. I’ve found my reading groove again and have been moving through it at a good pace.
EXCITED | about the running challenge that I am participating in over the next few weeks. It’s given me permission to slow down on runs, to just stick to a plan and not feel like I have to “race” every time I lace up my shoes. (Don’t worry, I don’t really “race”, but I definitely run my easy runs faster than I should more often than not).
WORKING ON | my Python skills. I finally attended a Python workshop (for ArcGIS) this month, something I had expressed interest in for a while, and finally the stars aligned and I had a project that was willing to cover the workshop expenses (mainly my work hours). It was really fun and I learned a lot.
ENJOYING | the birds that have been visiting our backyard since I hung up the two bird feeders. I’ve seen finches, titmice, bluejays, and hummingbirds and I had no idea how much I would enjoy seeing them come by!
(still) CONFUSED | about what’s going on with my RSS feed in Feedly and frustrated that nobody seems to be able to figure it out (not my hosting provider, not Feedly support), and Mr. Google is not of much help either. I am now subscribed to both http://theinbetweenismine.com/feed/ and https://theinbetweenismine.com/feed/, the latter apparently being the “correct” RSS feed, but showing as unreachable in Feedly, while the first one (without the “s” in http://) seems to be at least pulling in posts every few days, although that one shouldn’t even be able to “see” my feed. It’s a little bizarre at this point and I am still waiting for a response from Feedly about this.
What is currently going on in your world?
