⏭️ and the next positive. Only two to go.
Let's see if separation helps for the last of us.

😑 Quite annoyed with the situation. But I guess that's a better state than panic and anxiety hitting hard like it did before.

Let's try it like @jack and post on my mastodon account directly and import it on the blog for archiving.

SARS-CoV-2 has entered the building.


🍔 I'm craving for some lunch.

😌 I lie on the sofa and enjoy the silence outside my head.

🐶 Out for a photo walk with the dog.
It’s a grey day.
Black/white preset applied.

🤒 One of those nights.
The smallest has fever and a really bad night so far.
Good thing I’ve had enough sleep last night and during the day.

🤪 Feeling better.
Put posted on instagram again.
Feeling weird now.

A couple of days ago I’ve seen a reflection of this fella. I thought it was one of the storks living around here. But it’s a Great White Egret, probably in transit.

😣 Migraine on the free day. Yay.

🍺 Feierabend!

📝 Updating my /now page.

Time for some fresh colors on the desk.

🤔 Since I don't feel 100% happy with my web stuff, I'm going to use the dog walk for some thinking about this.

🤷 just missed writing my weekly note. ah well. there's a weekly status note then.

Ohne Auto geht es in Hammelburg nicht?

Das ist eine Frage, die ich mir regelmäßig stelle und dann alles versuche um irgendwann darauf mit “Ja, es geht auch hier ohne Auto gut.” antworten zu können. Zugegebenermaßen funktioniert das aber nicht immer und deswegen haben wir als Familie doch zumindest ein Auto, das immer wieder gebraucht wird.

Aber wie kann das ohne gehen? Oder einfach nur anders?

Diese Frage stellt sich Katja Diehl vermutlich andauernd und hat in ihrem Buch Autokorrektur – Mobilität für eine lebenswerte Welt dazu ihre Ideen und Erfahrungen gesammelt und ausgearbeitet.

Um dieses Vorzustellen und zum Gespräch über Mobilität einzuladen, hat der Hammelburger Klimaschutzmanager Philipp Spitzner zusammen mit der VHS und der Bibliothek Katja gewonnen.

Am kommenden pMittwoch 25.01. ab 19 Uhr wird sie in der Stadtbibliothek sein](https://bibliothek.hammelburg.de/aktuelles/veranstaltungen/1027-autokorrektur-mobilitaet-fuer-eine-lebenswerte-welt):

Katja Diehl wird ihr Buch „Autokorrektur“ vorstellen, das direkt nach seinem Erscheinen auf Platz 5 der Spiegel-Bestsellerliste gestiegen ist. Das Publikum ist eingeladen, mit Diehl und Experten aus dem Kissinger Landkreis über Potenziale und Bedürfnisse für eine Mobilitätswende zu diskutieren. Die Autorin engagiert sich seit langem für eine gerechtere Mobilität, an der alle teilhaben können. Sie verdeutlicht, wie oft Menschen in ihrer Mobilität aufs Auto angewiesen sind, selbst wenn sie es eigentlich gar nicht möchten. Und sie fragt: Was bedeutet das für alle, die keinen Führerschein haben oder sich ein Auto nicht leisten können oder wollen?

Ich verfolge Katjas Arbeit schon seit einigen Jahren und freue mich sehr sie endlich persönlich treffen zu können. Ich lade alle, die sich für Mobilität in Hammelburg und unserem Landkreis interessieren zu kommen. Sie schafft es immer wieder, meinen Blick auf Verkehr zu schärfen und bin mir sicher, dass sie einige Erkenntnisse für alle dabei hat. Egal ob man mit dem Rad, zu Fuß, mit Kinderwagen oder Auto unterwegs ist.

Karten für 5€ gibt es in der Bibliothek oder auch online über die VHS.

Glorious weather for a fun run!

🟪 Yo!

😊 Riding the bike to kindergarten and back on the most scenic detour because the valley is flooded is THE BEST

Week 2: a tight fit

  • We are in the middle of our birthday season. Monday and Thursday were two of them. Lots of family, cake, coffee, great food. Tiring, but I’m still happy to be around such nice folks.
  • Work started again on Tuesday. Getting sorted and doing a deep dive into database performance analysis took the most time.
  • WordPress might be nice to use for some, but you really, REALLY need to know what you’re doing. Otherwise one quite popular site that’s behind a CDN might get close to kill a really big database server. 🙄
  • We have a big freezer in the cellar now. I measured before ordering so I could be sure it fit through the tight cellar door. After taking off the hinges it fit. And I got lucky that the steep stairs weren’t a cm narrower.
  • 2023 feels really good so far.
  • I definitely feel changed since just a couple weeks ago. Didn’t start with the new year but earlier. So lucky.
  • Running was painful this week.
  • These weeknotes are still fun. I had to remind myself through the week to just jot some notes down. And taking out a few to put to my private notes. And it most certainly helps that quite a lot are posting theirs early on Sunday.
  • I haven’t used my camera in two weeks. It’s something about the greyness outside. Maybe I should try some walks with a black&white film silmulation pre set.

7! 🎂

Likes should be visible to only the Like-or and the Like-ee. Liking something is a simple, unobtrusive way to let someone know I appreciate what they wrote. It’s also a way to get a little bump when someone likes what I wrote. No one else need be involved.

I like that idea.

There’s no need for any metrics on “likes”, but the signal itself is helpful.

In face-to-face conversation there’s all kinds of non-verbal communication. you can nod your head, smile. We’ve come up with a similar language online, I don’t think there’s any more meaning in this.

I don’t get Dave’s TV parallel, but I agree that Like is something that’s part of the language of social media.

Week 1: it's a start

  • Let’s start this thing. Always wanted to, like most of the time I procrastinated on it. Please welcome my very first week note.
  • Picked up running again after a break for more than a year. Feels like riding the Ebike kept me in a basic shape. The first half of last year was one of the worst health wise. Not just Covid, but all around the body. That’s getting older for me.
  • A two week break over the holidays is coming to an end. We’ve done this every year in our company’s history and after the last two strange ones, I could come back to the way of taking a week to fill up my belly with great food, just relax and enjoy family and friends and then do some DIY home improvement build. Feels great to build something again.
  • I’ve built a big box with a large drawer for all the toys in the kids room which also serves as a whole platform in itself. Felt good to do some building with my hands again. And it’s good that we have a crooked house. It demands to build something without right angle…
  • On Saturday J. And I gave each 5 hours just for themselves. I had migraine in the morning and was completely lazy. It was great.
  • It looks like I helped @assbach to revive his blog with a weekly review. What a coincidinc.
  • Dominik started a side project to collect week notes for some group pressure accountability: weeknotes.cafe. That’s a good idea.
  • For reference, the people who inspired me to write weak notes: Alice Bartlett, James Van Dyne and maique. And probably some more.

I love how in winter you can notice how nature does it’s thing in special ways.

And that there’s a point in not sweeping the leaves 😬
