Waiting for brake parts, tidying up and alarm clocks – day 5
During the weekend I enjoyed fixing the armrest on my porch swing.
I also ordered some brake parts which I hope will be here by tomorrow.
Yesterday, after trying to work a full day from my spare bedroom/office I filled the back of the car with assorted garbage and drove it to the recycling center. I feel kind of lucky compared to some friends of mine that I met up there that were dumping their third trailer full of stuff from their garden and basement.
Yesterday was also the day where I decided to take down the tent in the garden as it was starting to get annoying to have to move it around in the garden to avoid damaging the lawn. It is starting to become a family tradition it seems to tent outside around easter or as soon as the snow is going away, but this year the tent stayed up until now, partially as an emergency office should it become too noisy inside the house and partially as a place for the kids to play when they weren't allowed to go elsewhere.
While packing the tent I found a bumblebee that had somehow got trapped inside. Poor creature. I try to help those in the spring and I tried to keep the tent closed, mostly as a precaution against cats, but when the kids play they leave it open and I sometimes forget to check that it is closed before I go to bed.
It now seems my iPhone alarm clock is enough to get me out of bed before 0400. That would be great as the Sleep app does not exist for iPhone and all the others that did exist lacked the killer feature from Sleep: an NFC scanner that could be configured to be the only way to turn the thing off.
This morning I have found some interesting software/websites:
- https://github.com/loomio/loomio/ – seems to be a modern forum system, found via https://docs.joinplu.me
- which in turn I found via https://plume.nixnet.xyz – seems to be an alternative to write.as / https://writefreely.org, found via https://plume.nixnet.xyz/~/BlogOwl/why-i-don't-have-a-personal-website/
