I don’t think I’ll be called papa or daddy again. This whole trip, all that I’ve heard from my daughter, is Donny, Donald, or Uncle Donny. 🤦🏼‍♂️ She’s following what all of her cousins are calling me. 😂

Micro.blog Photo Challenge day 14: Horizon.

Playing around with black and white.

I forget to include a link to the Micro.blog photo challenges page, to give context of what the photo is for. I decided to throw together a quick Drafts action to insert a link to the challenge. It will also prompt for the day number and the daily prompt and format it nicely for the post.

The formatted text will look like this. Micro.blog Photo Challenge day 14: Horizon.

Fun with Draft Actions

I’m having some fun working on this Drafts action for Micro.blog. I’m horrible with JavaScript, but I’m fumbling my way through it and feel like it’s coming along nicely. I’ve still got some ideas for it, but wanted share a little bit, to give myself a push, so that I don’t keep it hidden forever. I wanted to have one spot to post to my primary or test blog, so I added a prompt that will let you choose which blog that you want to post to.

I don’t have any regular routines or rituals. The closest would be sitting down each evening this week and working on a new Drafts action.

I almost put deodorant on my toothbrush instead of toothpaste. How’s your day going?

Good food together with family. ☺️

Finished reading: The Martian: A Novel by Andy Weir 📚

Admittedly, I saw the movie before I read the book. However, I did enjoy both.

That moment when everything falls in place and I have a working Drafts action and I’m using it to post this. 😃

Figured out my issue that I was having. Apparently I shouldn’t be trusted with JavaScript. I was adding the query parameter to the request object incorrectly. 🤦🏼‍♂️

I’m working on a Drafts action for Micro.blog, but having some issues with the category selection. I added a prompt to select the blog to post to, however, when requesting the categories it continues to show the categories based on my main blog. I tried setting the mp-destination to the selected blog on the Micropub request for the categories, but that doesn’t seem to work. Or I’m setting that request up wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions to try out?

Taking a walk by Vecna’s house. What could go wrong? 😬

I hate pollen. Forgot to take allergy medicine this morning too. 🤦🏼‍♂️

I love that she is expressing interest in learning to play. She keeps asking to take lessons.

I’ve been wanting to read more, but keep putting it off. We finally went and got new library cards and set up the Libby app to check out books with. Really excited to get back in to reading more.

These two make my heart whole. ❤️

I love the engineering in clocks.

I forgot to post my photo for yesterday.

After a long day of zipping around, it’s time for some quiet time with cousins.

It’s been a long time since I’ve used personal photos as wallpaper on my devices. However, I’ve been using the photo shuffle wallpaper on my iPhone and I’ve really enjoyed it. It feels a bit like a digital version of carrying photos in my wallet. Pick up my phone and there’s a photo of my daughter or wife. Thinking of it like this made me want to keep this around. Shannon and I now show off which photo is our wallpaper, each hour, when it changes. It’s a fun trip, together, down memory lane.
