Finished reading: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis 📚
I had all three of my kids up, dressed, fed, and across town in time for an 8:00 am appointment this morning. I’m giving myself this award: 🏅
This was our first book reading aloud with the children. They did great, but at the end, they were ready to be done. I received reports that my reading hurt their ears.
I used the Great Illustrated Classics abridged edition of the book, which was a great choice for them. It had a cohesive story with an illustration on every page to match the text.
We had some great conversations about the story and I look forward to our next book!
🚸 This was a book that I read aloud with my children.
I travel to a local art museum and speak with the curator/artist about their collection.
I love the On This Day feature in Day One. This morning, I began writing an expanded second edition of my first book, The Transition. When I finished writing, I opened Day One and saw that on this day six years ago I started work on the first draft!
I just finished the draft of my first new book in five years. 40,000 words, all written in Ulysses, almost completely written on my iPad. This is my longest book to date, and it feel so gratifying to reach this milestone.
It would be nice if the iPad FaceTime app only showed a history of FaceTime calls like the iPhone one does. I don’t need my full call history when I’m trying to make a FaceTime video call.
Finished reading: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain 📚
Finishing up small tweaks and testing on dark mode support for my websites. Planning to roll those updates out next week.
I’ve updated my Books page to include a listing of books that I’m currently reading. I also made a notation of books that I’ve read aloud with my children. Can’t wait to see my list grow with those titles!
Busy weekend ahead, but ahead on my task list. That may be because my daughter was playing with my watch and checking off items in Things.app.
Marie Kondo was right. It’s nice to have pajamas that were bought for that purpose. So much more relaxing that simply being old shirts that are no longer acceptable to wear in public.
