Weekly review: Week ending May 16, 2014

Posted: - Modified: | weekly

Lots of gardening this week. We bought seedlings for the herbs and vegetables we want to grow this year. Excited!

Also, I had this idea for doing an e-mail-based Emacs Lisp course. I floated the idea and lots of people signed up, so I'm going to be focusing on that over the next month. Whee! =)
