Being healthier

So here we are – about a week into my being healthier in 2018 experiment.  How are things going you ask?  Well – they started off great.  And then – I got sick…  I’m actually rather depressed about it.  I started the fist 4 days of the year doing exactly what I wanted to do. …

2017 in review

So….  Here we are – the first day of 2018.  Looking back at 2017 and how I did at ‘doing the things’ I have mixed feelings.  While I believe that this is still a good idea, I didn’t really pull it off.  I was successful in the early part of the year at learning about…

Where did June go?

So here we are.  Im sure you’ve noticed, but there wasn’t a single update post from June.  Im not sure what to say besides that I just literally didn’t have the time.  Im in the middle of changing roles at my job and that’s sucked up a surprising amount of time.  I’ve found myself working…

A disappointment

May has ended and I wasn’t able to finish my garage project.  I have lots of excuses.  Work got busy, I took a new role, travel, conferences, etc, etc, etc.  In the end – I just didn’t move fast enough.  I spent too much time in the beginning going back and forth on decisions.  What…

End of Month 4 summary

I’ll admit a certain sense of frustration with myself with how I did this past month.  I can’t put my finger on exactly what went wrong – but the month just got away from me.  I generated a pitiful amount of posts, 3 for the whole month.  So no excuses – I guess I just…

The Ice Ball Press

A couple of months ago (my the time flies), when I was spending the month on Whiskey, I went on a little bit of an ice sidetrack.  Truthfully, the sidetrack hasn’t stopped and I’ve become rather obsessed with having the perfect ice for cocktails.  It first started with having perfectly clear ice which I was mildly successful…

End of Month 3 summary

As month 3 comes to a close I feel pretty good about what I was able to accomplish.  I made a lot of bread and towards the end really felt like I was getting the hang of it all.  There were some problems I ran into with the starter and shaping the loaves but I…

End of Month 2 summary

Well that happened quickly.  I feel so-so about month 2.  I certainly learned a lot that I didn’t know before but I dont feel like it was as productive as month 1.  Maybe that’s because I have a couple of lingering items that I didnt quite get done.  Namely – the ice stuff but that…

Month 2 – End of fourth week review

I just realized I only have 2 days left this month.  Yikes – well I think things are going well.  Im continuing to taste different types of bourbon but I can’t admit that my ability to discern between different whiskeys has gotten any stronger.  I’ve also picked up a book on bourbon which I’ve started…
