Following the latest CDC guidance, we went for a largely maskless beach walk last night. It was lovely and we even saw some whales feeding in the ocean

I woke up this morning to find out that the kitten had chewed through the wire between our thermostat and furnace. I had to do some wire stripping and patching to get the heating working again before I even had any coffee 😾

The arrival of warmer weather allows me to run my iOS shortcut that uses HomeKit temperature sensors to tell me when to open the windows to cool down the house in the evening

I’m a fan of the Hemispheric Views podcast and enjoy the episodes where they critique listener’s desk set-ups. So I shared a couple of photos on their Discord and they wrote up their thoughts on my set-up on their new blog.

What I Read in 2020 📚

After reading 37 books in 2019, I set myself what I thought was a comfortable goal of reading 24 books in 2020. Unfortunately, I didn’t reach my goal as I usually read during my commute, and I’ve been working from home since March. I ended up reading 13 books, which is not bad considering what a year it has been:

These were my highlights:

If you want to see what I’m reading throughout the year then you can follow me on Goodreads.

I captioned my best nine of 2019 with “An incredible year of travel in 2019. Let’s keep this going in 2020!”. So I’m sorry for jinxing it and won’t make the mistake of offering any predictions for 2021 this time

I finished The Mandalorian season two and immediately canceled my Disney+ subscription. I’m ready for Disney+ to have more shows in the future to keep me a subscriber. (I think The Mandalorian is good, but not great, and season two is better than season one)
