Instead of an executive sending an all company email about Black Lives Mattering, my company invited a black employee to address us at an all hands. She invited us all to stop defending police. It was a great moment

My queen is laying drones. Bummer of the Summer

My garden is going to be a process. But even my baby steps are going to make pounds of healthy food

Still employed, but dreaming every day about never returning to an office full time

I just got a really nice email wanting to engage over potentially joining a startup. It’s phishing of the guy is named Admiral Dome, right?

We were successfully phasing meat out of our grocery orders but then Weber’s had a beef sale.

One of my kids is dangerously close to becoming an activist. I am nurturing her sense of justice and encouraging activities that will help her find her voice.

The honeybees are doing a lot of bee stuff.

Garden beds are in progress.

The things I pay attention to continue to flourish.

I’m surprised at some of the things I’m finding the will to pay attention to.

My agricultural hobbies are in full effect

This weather! I’ll be tilling for the garden this weekend

I am getting addicted to all-day access to people and things I care about

In an odd twist of fortune I am wearing long pants for the first time in recent memory

Shheeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiitttttt. I just finished my annual viewing of The Wire
