The last week of school for the boys! ...and almost the last week of school for Shelley (she teaches in a different district).

...and the yard work took a break since Friday evening. We'll start again later in the week, but I believe school events and such will keep the shovels at rest until Saturday or so. I'll have to remember to let you know what the master plan is for that.

Right now it's back to the routine...


Whoa, major disconnect... I went to post to Daynotes and couldn't find this week's file! ...and I know I'd posted last night because ... well, I did! ...but then I realized I hadn't posted from that boxen (the HP Pavilion running the 64 bit stuff) because I'd fired up Debian here on the Shuttle and used it to post last night. ...and to make it more confusing, I get my mail and such on the Pavilion and I'd used that box to process today's photo of Tiffany with LightZone for Linux instead of taking the shot into the Windows box as I usually do. So all that was the matter was me being one computer off for both the photoblog and Daynotes posts. Gee, thanks, Ann, for a tech post. ...and I have to say Tiffany looks great!

I need to consolidate a thing or two here...


No post?

Oh, yeah, I was at a sleep study ruling out sleep apnea.

...turns out I snore.


The last day of school (effectively). I spent the evening working up a photo album for the high school choir teacher based on his 'concert under the stars' evening.

I hope it works for him...


Done, done, done. ...with the week and with school. ...and time for the annual parent kid party with the same gang that's been hanging out for fifteen years or so.

It was nice to just be able to relax for a few...


...and I think the week did us in: Brad was the only one who really wanted to do anything today. ...and even he came home later and said he just wanted to go to bed.

Yeah, a day off of sorts...


...other than driving around with Daniel. I forgot we did that most of the afternoon yesterday. This time I kept him on the freeways for a while and had him drive me a few places I normally wouldn't bother to drive to. That worked out well. ...and he got several hours behind the wheel.

This could be a workable thing...
