I came across this tweet about the late 90s/early 00s design aesthetic and it resonated deeply with me and reminded me that I imported this PS4 controller because I loved it so much.

Technology peaked at this aesthetic.

Luna and Hugo teamed up to pass serious judgement on poor Downward Dog form.

The sun painted a pretty scene on the clouds before it disappeared

I have found that I need the “on this day” reminders from Photos and my blog to reinforce what time of year it is in 2020. Part of me definitely still thinks it is March.

Last night my wife made us roast beef for dinner. Not content for the pedestrian pairing of mashed potatoes as a side she instead prepared cauliflower bites fried in a buffalo sauce.

I regularly catch myself subtly smiling to people when I walk by them and then realize that it is hidden by my mask.

I need to adopt some more elaborate mannerisms!

This afternoon’s dilemma, to watch the provincial Covid update and feel bad now or to learn the details later and feel bad then.

This entire year has been a strange adjustment to work and life. Today I was reflecting on whether my cat will ever adjust to having a second dog in the house.

Choosing to not go play hockey tonight hours before the rink is closed for a few weeks is probably one of the toughest calls I have had to make in 2020.

At the same time, staying home was also a real easy choice.

Today was a very sleepy day in our home

Halifax just announced a lot of new restrictions and rules to try and get our COVID cases back under control.

I’m thankful that I just did a grocery run so we have enough provisions to hunker down for a bit.

It’s challenging to capture the holiday spirit when it’s 15 degrees and rainy. I could really go for some snow! ❄️

Went for a sunset hike with Luna tonight while Raquel took Hugo to the pet store.

Nova Scotia is bordering on having to bring in more extreme COVID restrictions again as we have recorded more than a dozen cases recently.

Thankfully I am noticing an uptick in mask use and people following rules again which gives me hope.

Luna has claimed this footstool as the ultimate sunbeam collector

The next four days are the typical maritime winter delay, alternating shorts & flip flops one day and having to put a sweater on the dog the next.

I look at my calendar and see nine consecutive meetings and my focus started to fade immediately. At least it is Friday!

Luna can make any possible position look warm and cozy as she pursues the sun beam.

As news of community and school spread increases here in Nova Scotia I have been thinking about the potential for another lock down period.

I definitely have developed a strong dependence on the dogs. Without them I would definitely go stir crazy.

Luna’s capacity for “chill” knows no limits

Tuesday night baking adventure!

Now that the sun is going down so much earlier I am trying to train myself to stop working earlier and walk the dogs while it’s still light out.

Photos offered up this memory today and it was perfect for today’s #mbnov prompt.

Today we had a symmetric gigabit internet connection installed giving us far more up speed at home.

Jumping from 10Mbps to 1Gbps is exciting because it means we don’t have to worry about Zoom bandwidth and as a bonus I can also reliably run my own VPN

Started playing Hades today. I am not usually one for rogue-like gameplay but the mix of spooky and whimsy in the art style and the gameplay won me over quickly
