The last bit of May and the first half of June have been really busy. I had to do quite a bit around the home.

So, I still don’t quite know what I want this site to be. But it’s been chugging along quite nicely for the past few months, despite my posting being shamefully sporadic.

March started with a weekend long ski trip in Vermont. Given that I flew to Florida in in January and February to escape the cold, it means I had some form of international travel every month for the past three months.
