Costco

February 18, 2018. After a quick trip to Costco I spent the day coding and listening to the new Brandi Carlile album. This is our local Costco. https://flic.kr/p/2379b6V

Winterlude

Image
February 17, 2018. We went skating on the canal today. It was Andrea's first time and she did really well. I did much less so, though I did manage to stagger around a but. We also had BeaverTails, walked around the ice sculptures, and enjoyed the whole atmosphere. https://flic.kr/p/EMsVCT

The Nest

February 16, 2018. I'm sure this has been there all year - maybe even longer - but I didn't notice it until today. It's not the greatest photo but I wanted to record it for posterity. It's just outside my office, by the parking lot. Mixed bag today: wrote a blog post, did some project interviews, evaluated a funding proposal and worked a little on gRSShopper. https://flic.kr/p/233C7Zc

Chickadee

February 15, 2018. Frustrating day as it took all day to do the OPML code on gRSShopper. I kept making silly errors. On the way home I took a short walk in the forests by Mer Bleu. I only had the compact camera with me and got some so-so photos of Chickadees. https://flic.kr/p/23itRGd

Gloucester Centre

Image
February 14, 2018. Pretty good progress on gRSShopper today as I turned my attention to the admin functions. Took a break at lunch to go to Gloucester Centre, a very small mall with a large food court. https://flic.kr/p/EJd6Xt

Evening Trees

Image
February 13, 2018. A day of interviews and project work. There was an absolutely gorgeous sun pillar on the way home, but by the time I got in it had disappeared, leaving me with nothing but this feeble excuse of a sunset. That's the view out the front across the tracks these days. https://flic.kr/p/24ojJiT

Riverside Hospital

Image
February 12, 2017. Technically it's the Riverside campus of the Ottawa Hospital, but I think of it as Riverside Hospital. It was time for our annual check-up and I'm pleased to report that my blood pressure is normal, my cholesterol is good, and all the other indicators are as they should be. Andrea had her annual check-up at the same time and she's doing even better than I am. It does remind me, though, that I should be spinning more to get ready for a summer of cycling. https://flic.kr/p/24ojrLz
