Weekly review: Week ending August 14, 2020

  • I finished my annual review.
  • I tinkered around with my Quantified Awesome Docker image. One step back, I think, since I’d actually managed to get it working on my local system before but I deleted my Dockerfile by accident.
  • I started learning how to analyze my time data with pandas and visualize it with matplotlib. I didn’t notice any particularly useful patterns that I might want to use for decisions, though.
  • I sewed matching skirts for us.
  • A- wanted to have ice cream in a cone as part of her evening snack. She had been asking for it for a couple of days. W- asked A- whether she thought she could skip asking tomorrow if he gave her ice cream tonight. She assured him she wouldn’t ask. I suggested making a written agreement, and to our great surprise, A- was on board with that idea. W- drafted a quick agreement and A- carefully signed it with her name, with a little help with spelling.
  • A- wanted to go to the pet food store along with W-. I made ear-loops for her mask since she didn’t want the head ties. There weren’t a lot of people in the store, so we went in. We wore matching masks and matching skirts. She sanitized her hands before and after going to the store, and she followed all of our instructions. First store outing in months!
  • Come to think of it, it might be interesting to build a Zettelkasten for A-‘s pedagogical documentation. I can trace the development of her interests and build richer stories that way.
