Well, we’ve had a busy weekend. We put a deposit down on a fully loaded Chevy Bolt EUV, and sold our gas-guzzler. (The CarMax selling process was a breeze!) We’re now an electric-vehicle-only family, and it feels great!


Want to read: The Upcycle by William McDonough 📚 Just added this to my queue after watching this video where McDonough talks about the philosophy and design thinking behind the book.

Finished reading: The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin 📚 A rich and absorbing novel, with an impressively detailed world. The “trick” of the novel’s structure worked on me, making for a very satisfying final chapter. 4/5 stars.

Got a decent view of the stage for the Seattle Kraken expansion draft announcement. And just found out that the draft list was leaked. I’ll try to act surprised.


Passed by Lady Liberty on our Circle Line Cruise yesterday and she said to tell you all “Happy Independence Day!”


Finished reading: Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, No. 1) by Lee Child 📚
