Now

What I’m Up To

As suggested here, this is what I’d highlight if I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in a year:

Family

  • Oliver’s Stars for Life day program is now, at least for the time-being based out of our house.
  • Oliver is auditing Susan Brown’s HIST 2620 Rule Britannia-Cool Britannia course at UPEI.
  • Our tomato plant gave us five tomatoes; so far one has ripened and been eaten for lunch.
  • I picked our apples and some of our plums, and made apple plum sauce.
  • We spent a very pleasant week at the start of September in Cape Breton on vacation.

Paid Work

  • Working remotely with colleagues at Yankee Publishing, primarily on the infrastructure supporting Almanac.com (this is my 24th year of this partnership).

Projects

Volunteer Work

  • Serving on the board of directors of Stars for Life, focusing on obtaining long-term, sustainable funding for the organization.
  • Serving on the Mayor’s Task Force on Active Transportation for the City of Charlottetown; acting as co-chair and the liaison to the Parks & Recreation department.

I last updated this September 22, 2020, and have set myself a reminder to update it monthly from here onward.
