Weekly review: Week ending September 26, 2014

The big project I was focusing on worked out really well. Long days definitely paid off! =) I had fun using AngularJS and AutoHotkey to make something cool and useful.

Also, Hacklab has now moved to its new location, hooray! Looking forward to learning and exploring more, especially once my consulting gig winds down. We made minestrone for the last open house at Hacklab, and I helped pack things and assemble furniture. All this moving is prompting us to also redecorate a little at home. I swapped out my bedside bookcase for a lower table, and we moved the standing desk downstairs. Now we’re varnishing my bedside table and assorted shelves.

The minestrone was yummy, so I made it again at home. Mmm. Plans for this week: beef curry, basa fillets, pesto. Yay cooking! Happy to be eating (and making!) home-cooke meals. Our routines are slowly going back to normal! =)

Timesink: W- introduced me to this space-based adventure game called Out There. I finished one ending, but the other ones are hard! At least W- and I can compare notes about our misadventures…
