The downstairs space is complete! It looks even better than I imagined. We have two separate spaces (three including walk-in closet) – one for the workout equipment and one for my office space. The closet is green-walled for easy conversion into a bathroom down the line. Now to throw out that gym membership.
I’ve decided to start a collection of my favorite weekly readings – some I tweet, but I’d like to manage these references so I can return and read them. This first entry is an archive of previous readings/links/tutorials that I’ve accumulated in my browser tabs (and we all know how that gets).
How I Start – a great resource for beginners interested in picking up C++, Haskell, Ruby, etc. I love it because it only focuses on a few languages instead of overwhelming n00bs with too many choices: https://www.howistart.org/
As I invest more time in the yard, I am trying to be better about identifying the flora and fauna around me. We have the usual So Cal suspects of a variety of succulents, jasmine, honeysuckle, bougainvillea, morning glories, etc., but I have been more focused on the birds hovering all around. So far I know we have the following:
Mockingbirds (in abundance)
Allen’s Hummingbird (just one, and it was very bossy and hogged the feeder)
