Weekly review: Week ending January 22, 2016

It’s been a good week of transitions and following up. The new members of the team at my main consulting client are doing an awesome job at the things I used to do, yay!

The Asian grocery store near us has closed, so we’ve been looking for a different source for pork belly. There are a few promising candidates. More freezer preparation, too. This week: tonkatsu!

Minor panic over something I ordered not being the right size, but fortunately we were able to swap it for something that was. Yay return policies!

I’ve been going for more walks. I’ve loaded up my Kindle with fiction and developer references, and that seems to be a good fit for the cold. Lots of drawing, too, now that I’ve gotten my old-sketch review process sorted out. =)

Next week: more prep work, maybe some sewing…
