Weekly review: Week ending July 16, 2021

  • I got my second COVID-19 vaccine, whew!
  • I accidentally set the oven to 160F for an hour instead of 120F for one minute because I didn't check it, assuming the Warm setting was what I had set before. This cooked my sourdough starter, whoops! I'm trying to revive the one I stashed in the freezer, but it's going more slowly than I remember. The last time I had to restore yeast from backup, I had used the yeast I dried, so I guess it worked better. (Spoiler alert: the sourdough starter came back after a few days of feeding, yay!)

  • Steno:
    • I added frequency-sorted completion with stroke information to Emacs, whee! I'm using the JSONs for completion info at the moment instead of checking with Plover directly, but maybe I can figure that out someday (or get the enabled dictionaries from the config).
    • I want to be able to undo with fewer mistakes, so I started to look into sending completion info from Emacs to Plover.
  • Other:
    • W- made chocolate cherry jam and canned more of the sweet cherries we bought. Tita Joy dropped off more cherries too.
    • A- and I started doing badminton drills. She really liked them.
    • We wrapped up the first year of virtual kindergarten. Yay!

  • Ugh, I broke my journal database by C-c-ing too much in panic. Thank goodness I had a backup of the MongoDB and I had copies of many of the entries in my Org archive. I tried reconstructing other entries from my steno strokes. I ended up restoring my journal from the Linode backup by making a new node.
  • I wrote an Emacs Lisp function for generating my invoices.
  • We got sick with a bad cold.

  • Household:
    • I placed black mulch and moved some of the strawberries to the ground.
    • We canned cherries in syrup and we also made chutney.
    • I rubbed lots of aphids from the petunias.
    • I made a splash skirt and a splash gown for A-.
    • I made bike streamers for A- using foil gift wrap. She liked them a lot.
    • We moved the cabinets upstairs.
  • Steno:
    • I tried to add current stroke display to Emacs, but I can't figure out how to deal with ligatures. I did get clippy to save to a file and to show Spectra, though.
    • I described my Emacs setup.
  • Other:
    • I figured out how to add images to my blog posts in Eleventy.
    • I learned more about using jq to filter through the dictionary.
