  • Feeling:┬áMore relaxed
  • Listening to:┬áNothing today
  • Watching: Van der Valk

Going to try to keep this short. A pretty relaxed day as I determined not to stress myself out with a list of things to do. I made bread (focaccia – but far too wet and not my best effort – but tasted fine all the same), jam (kiwi & gin) and broke down a pallet that we had a delivery on in the hope that at some point I might make something out of the wood.

I did some more electronics with B and some programming – we got the light dependent resistor working and connected to the Raspberry Pi – so a step closer to my project to integrate this with my wooden guitar player automaton.

F played in the garden and on the computer and watched Hairspray in the afternoon.

I helped D conceal her phone in the hedge so that she could film the birds (hopefully some footage forthcoming).

I failed to read my book (which was about the one thing I’d wanted to do), but did manage to finish the arrangement for my latest looping project – so hopefully I’ll be able to record that in the next few days.

In the evening B and F FaceTimed with their US cousins, and F got to say thank you for the very smart laptop case she got from them for her birthday.

All in all a successful Sunday, but now its Monday (twenty past midnight) and I need some sleep.

Stay safe, stay strong.
