Robert’s garden

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Robert started a vegetable garden and he’s giddy about it.

I’m excited for him and maybe hoping he has way too many vegetables and needs to pawn them off…

My virtual living room

Monday, April 20, 2020

When I’m not looking at a screen for work, I’m spending perhaps a little too much time looking at another screen and harvesting fruits, buying things and “decorating” my virtual living room.

Animal Crossing is keeping some semblance of relief, but I’m also starting to get a little weary of the mechanics and lack of story.

Missing movie theaters

Missing movie theaters among many other things. They fall into the column of: How do we safely do this activity in the future? And concerts, live theater, restaurants…

I keep thinking architecture is going to shift because of this.

Tabs open

Edie looks on as I do work.

Tabs open for icons, fonts, facts about words, Rick Steves and Coronavirus.

First trip inside a place

Thursday, April 16, 2020

That place was Costco.

They did a really solid job laying things out to emphasize social distancing.

Not everyone was on board with this, but the good folks outnumbered the duds by far.

I’m really hoping this ratio continues.

A spare set of dumbbells

It is impossible to find any workout equipment online or off.

My brother found a spare set of (light) dumbbells and friends were in need.

This gave us a chance to say hi for the first time without a screen between us.

Tax day wasn’t cancelled, it was postponed.

Spring continued.

The new setup

I figured if everything was rolling to remote virtual meetings, I could attempt and make things better.

Previously I was battling with a wall of windows as my background providing lots of back light.

Moved things around, hooked up a nice microphone and began staging the room behind this setup to be (hopefully) more interesting.
