Great time hanging out with @Chrisunick today. Been too long.

:success: reaching your daily stand goal just as you are about to sit down for awhile.

Related to my last toot, I want to try out both a monorepo and trunk based development on this next project.

Github's "your branch is out of date, would you like to merge" button has bitten me more times now than it's been useful. I wish you could disable that. It ends up breaking gitflow almost every time if you merge the branches out of order.

Checked out the local Girl Scout camp today. It’s no Seven Mountains, but it’ll do. πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸŒ²πŸ¦”πŸΏπŸ€πŸ‰πŸ’πŸœπŸ›πŸžπŸŒπŸ¦‰πŸŒ²πŸŒ²

Spent the morning pruning blueberry bushes with the local land trust. Wish I could do this everyday.

One of my favorite days of the year: Shred Day! (the town gets a document shredder on a truck and charges $10/box)

Super Troopers 2 πŸ‘πŸ‘

Trying to make better use of our local library. Even though I prefer reading on my Kindle than physical books, I found I would buy a book for $12 and only read it once. Since it was digital and not physically taking up space on a shelf, I'd forget it was even there. I find the topic of "digital clutter" or "digital accumulation" fascinating.

Cool to see Apple open sourcing this. I remember when they bought the company behind it.

Might have to go see Super Troopers 2 this weekend

I wish grocery store discount cards let me visit a portal to get statistics on what I was buying. I know how much I spend on groceries from my credit card, but I'd like to know that I'm spending $50/month on oatmeal and $200/month on baby formula.

I feel like if I ever wrote a tech-related book, it should be called "An Agile Tale: There And Back Again"

This sounds sad, but my ideal vacation would be one without WiFi and no cell service. I need a physical intervention to allow my mind to disconnect. :(

Backpacking, cruise, international travel would all fit the bill
