From last week’s plans:

  • Sewing: Finish dress Whee!
  • Blog: Write that monthly report Still haven’t done this

  • Went on my first fully-loaded books+groceries bike trip with my new pannier
  • Fixed bugs in the event calendar system

  • Coached a developer in Pune and a senior IT architect in Toronto on Drupal
