March – April 2022

A list of books, audiobooks, podcasts, television, and more that I am consuming.
A list of achievements, articles, or plans in the shop to showcase my production.

This series also maps my consumer habits: my time on media can lead to more projects and purchases, as well as influences my thoughts.

DIY Stuff

Ongoing: drywalling and insulating the “loft” area which will be for storage.

Other Things

Delivered the seven pedestals from last month

Build very complicated e-commerce events and membership website for a client (sorry, but can’t share it). So far about 40 hours in, which is excessive.

Bought a small septic pump because our septic system broke, and until we can repair it I have to pump the system every couple of days.

Shop stuff: had the concrete in front of the shop repaired so it would stop puddling at the door…. and they did the exact same thing a second time. So, now I have to fight them to come out again and fix it a second time.
