Weekly review: Week ending June 3, 2011

It was very much a salad sort of week. I finished the last of the kale and the spring lettuce from the community-supported agriculture box, discovering along the way that I’m not particular about the kind of oil I use for salad dressing: regular olive oil, fancy-schmancy fruity olive oil, or expensive walnut oil. So run-of-the-mill olive oil it is. I do like tossing nuts into my salad, and the hard-boiled eggs I’ve been keeping in the fridge have been convenient too.

W-’s new Lenovo X220 arrived, so we’ve both been busy drawing on our tablets. Getting the hang of drawing cubes. =) Baby steps!

Starting a Drupal project at work. It’s great to be back in the world of a gazillion community-contributed modules, although I miss the interactivity of rails console. (drush shell is helpful, but not quite as awesome as that!) Getting back up to speed.

I hope my manager can keep my engagements sane. More demand than supply. It’s a good problem to have, but it’s still pretty crazy. Fortunately, he can sort all of those things out while I focus on code.

Next week: the start of the summer CSA share, more gardening, more writing, more development, more awesomeness… =)
