Got an email from Dr. Gilbert today extolling the virtues of keeping blogs. I must agree that blogs, and all records really, are helpful when you want to look back on a time period. It almost doesn’t matter what the record captures – even the mundanities of life can be valuable to remember. And so I will elaborate a little bit more about the mundanities.
Last Friday I made an attempt at slow-cooked Jambalaya. It came out salty and dry. I had to scramble over to Freddy during lunch to get the cooking process started.
Saturday I spent the day looking at code. I dedicated the early parts of the morning to following an Electron tutorial, once satisfied I moved on to continue the tango with Keras. I posted a question to stack overflow and fairly quickly had someone post the helpful comment that solved my issue. Turns out I was treating an array of a single element as the element itself instead of extracting the element. What a silly mistake. Then I lost myself in the composition of Don Juan Triumphant.
Sunday was another gym day, so I did that after another early morning productivity session. Post gym I was mildly physically tired and wanting to get back to the daily program, but I had got my work clothes on and went to help Val some more. And I am glad for it. It is always nice to spend a few hours working alongside Val, and this time Mary was there to add to the merriment. Spent most of the time putting tires and tubes on rims. Mary and I helped ourselves to some of the remaining mulberries after a job well done.
Finally got my behind in gear today – I made a chicken liver dish. I’ve been meaning to try it since my initial food post. I think I should’ve fried it for a longer period of time or on higher heat. It came out with a mushy sticky consistency. I think that’s normal however, so I will eat it and do my best to enjoy it.
