Two weeks ago I sent a couple days in Lodi preparing for last week.
Last week was also spent in Lodi doing digging and drilling.
Jennifer and I took this weekend for some Us Time, and today I am back at work.
I had wondered if I might end up riding my bike in the rain, but the predicted storm hasn't hit land yet, and so it was just riding to work after a bit more than a one week lapse.
At least I can say that I didn't get overly sweaty, but it was a tough ride nonetheless.
Now I get to have a short week this week from having Monday off, and then next week is a nice three day work week.
In the intervening time since my last post, I have passed the halfway mark for the Discworld books. I can feel the reading accelerating since at this point Pratchett has got his stride and characters set. And now he begins exploring new characters while putting the main characters into the background.
Additionally, I've been reading the relevant pages from the Annotated Pratchett Files after I finish each book. Most of the little bits I've already picked up from articles about the author, explanations from the quizbooks, and the occasional news article that ends up revealing the hidden secrets from which Pratchett pulled his ideas, but every now and then there is a note that just makes me smack my forehead.
