Monthly review: June 2013

Last month, I wrote:

June promises to involve a lot of consulting and professional sketchnoting, lots of gardening and biking, and some big personal decisions. Let’s see how it works out!

This summer has been surprisingly cool, which is not a bad thing when biking. I’ve been scaling back consulting and sketchnoting events in favour of coding and working on personal projects, and I like the results. =) This was also the month we worked on the backyard patio, shovelling gravel and laying patio stones – that’s why family time went up quite a bit. New experiences, yay!

I experimented a bit with virtual meetups, too. Seems to be fun! Looking forward to digging into that some more.

July will be about gearing up for more changes, getting better at writing blog posts and making videos, and working on more projects around the house. I like this. =)
