An Aside

Looking for some inspiration from our #NED microbloggers to help us with cool names. Though the house is a tall A-frame, we don’t just want to call it Te Grotenhuis 😆. Our interim name is Kingfisher Kreek. There is a kreek, ~3 acres of vijver, ~15 acres of houtsoorten. We see a lot of:

  • ijsvogel
  • schildpad
  • hert
  • reiger

We also want it to be a place many people can visit and find solace. We’ve toyed with English words like “sanctuary” or “haven.”

🚲 to Chris’s 🍨🌮 for lunch. Best idea.

Hi Apple Watch 👋

Very nice to meet you. Really excited about all the cool exercise stuff we’re doing. One request though:

Could you maybe not give me stand up reminders when we are in sleep mode? kthxbye

I’m hearing more and more “Indunapliss”

Could we not?

Even better we could come up with a new city name?

🎶 Did You Know?

It’s not officially Autumn until you’ve listened to Opeth’s Blackwater Park straight through.

I think part of the joy of 🚲 is that it forces you to be mindful and present in the moment.

(Sadly this is because you are constantly aware of your surroundings to help ensure you don’t get murdert.)
