@openess you're ahead of us now. We're in the early parts of season 5.

Waiting for a package that is supposed to be delivered today but the tracking hasn't updated since it was dropped off two days ago πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ . It would be convenient if it came today πŸ€”

I'm home 'cus the kids are sick. (They're fine just can't go to out with runny noses). They are surprising me by playing on their own for most of the day so far. I've been able to both do the dishes and cook without any mayor issues. The youngest is getting older πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ .

I feel like I have a blog post idea, but I removed my blog since I hadn't posted since pre pandemic. πŸ€”

@openess πŸ€” and the F feeling like a wet EF is also encouraging. A Jowo EF is about as wide as I can be comfortable with and Lamy really been there in my experience. Looking forward to trying it some time.

@openess I've been close to getting that so many times. I'm gonna ask you to try it some time. I could probably have one of I could get along better with their nibs.

@labellaragassa as for pens it stopped at two vintage fountain pens and a cool compass for drawing tiny circles. I'm not sure but think it might be a drop bow πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ compass. One of the pens was NoS and had a nice ink window (gotta love a nice ink window) and the other one is from a local brand that still make pens but hasn't made fountain pens in years, not sure how long but this was the first one I've seen, so that was cool.

Finally found some time at work today to sit down with the union members. πŸ‘ Doing rep work.

I've spent way to much on pen stuff this weekend. I'm currently resisting another pen. It'll be a fun week in the mail anyways. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Took advantage of some great weather today. The family went to a semi-local park/forest. We found a nice spot to have some coffee and a snack.

I have a rare moment home alone. I picked some stuff up from the floor but then felt it was good enough and now I'm just watching pen streams and drinking coffee.

@edebill @openess yeah, that makes sense. Maybe I should start swinging my arms while riding the bike πŸ€”πŸ˜…

@openess I'm at 6267 now on the watch but 10424 on Fitbit. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It's just always done this and I never considered it. I do remember getting massive numbers back when I used to ride the train s lot though. I guess it depends on how you wear the tracker. The Fitbit has always been in my jeans pocket.

I'm impressed with the battery of the new watch. I'm not using all the features and I've not been really playing with it but I've gone from almost 50% to just over 20% from this morning till now when I'm home from work. That seems better than I expected.

My new watch doesn't register my bike commute as steps. So I have almost 3000 steps on my Fitbit but only 960 on the watch. 😀

Trying to clear some boxes. We moved over a year ago now so it feels like we should have managed by now. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

@crash I'm a teacher in Sweden. The kids are usually between 11 and 15 but can be older if they've had to redo a year. Not sure how that compares to the US system πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ . This is very much a personal account though and not so much a work account. I've seen some teachers from time to time but nothing organised.

In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
