Monthly review: August 2020

  • We played with lots of LEGO: building sets and our own creations, and making up stories and games. A- had fun inventing new rules and events in Heroica.
  • A- practised playing independently with LEGO or Khan Academy Kids while I did some consulting. I shared some of my earnings with her, so she kept encouraging me to work more. That freed up evening discretionary time for personal projects.
  • I added lots of little things to my journaling system to help me use it as a Zettelkasten. I also started digging into analyzing and visualizing it using Python.
  • We rehabilitated the main planter box and draped some mesh over the tomatoes on the deck.
  • I sewed some skirts for A- and me.
  • I worked on sneaking more math into everyday play.
  • A- read lots of books on her own.
  • A- and I wore our masks inside stores and the library. Whee!
  • Because of LEGO board games, A- was curious about mummies, minotaurs, zombies, and vampires.
