A few months ago I got it in my head that I was going to build my our blog from scratch. Then I did. It was up and running, and then I stopped. The problem is I was able to get a minimal working version up and running using a .net Core 2 api and an Angular front end pretty quickly. It was fun. But then when it came time to attempt to create content or just want to I was being pulled in two directions. Come up with said content or add more features and work on the actual blog part. I rarely did both and mostly did neither. So I came back to squarespace. There is some saying in software that goes something like, you want software that get's out of your way... or something to that effect. Don't remember, don't want to leave this screen. Well, when you write the software, it's always in your way. So, I'm back here.
My morning routine has been going well
In my, what turned out to be "temp blog", over the last few weeks I have been posting almost daily with progress reports. I recently made some big changes to my evening and morning routines. And diet, and drinking schedule. No more booze during the week in the plan except for special occasions. We end up going out on Fridays and the occasional Saturday if something interesting is happening. Then during the week we are making an attempt to go almost vegan. Every once in awhile I have an egg or some chicken mixed in with the vegan food. But it's a start.
I'm also getting to bed at a more reasonable time. The goal, which I've been pretty good at sticking to is being in bed at 9. Reading a paper book for an hour then going to sleep about 10. Then, waking around 6, doing morning words with coffee with cbc radio 2 on in the background, taking the dog for a walk and getting to work. I've miss a few walks... stayed up till 11 once or twice, snoozed until 6:30 a few times but it's pretty close to that. It's only been 2 weeks but it's starting to become habit... ish. I'm only trying to post here almost daily, other then Fridays and Saturdays. So, let's see if, now that I'm back on the squarespaces, if I can keep that up.
I also need to start doing the picture thing more I talked about in my last post here months and months ago. But I have a drone now. So now, I want to do more video stuff. I need 20 more hours in the day to do all I want to do.
