Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- I decided to stop using the Woocommerce plugin because it slows my site down and I don’t really need it. The details aren’t particularly meaningful, but it was a lot of behind the scenes shuffling. I also discovered how to resize image files within WP, so that was more busy work. I like that kind of mindless busy work, but I tend to take an anti-procrastination approach and blitz through until it’s done.
- Quote of the week: “God give me the confidence of an under-educated, mediocre, white man.” (Em)
- I’ve got better at recognizing that a migraine is getting started, and intervening to head it off at the pass. For me, that early intervention is 400mg of ibuprofen and then lying down for a couple of hours on my left side, and that worked well this morning. I’ve always found that left side-lying helps with nausea, I’m guessing because in that position, gravity pulls in the direction of stomach emptying.
- Not too much happened in my world this week. I had a massage, which was nice.
- It’s hot out, and is supposed to get stupid hot tomorrow. Not impressed.
I wrote recently about the discovery of the unmarked graves of 215 children on the grounds of an Indian Residential School in Kamloops, BC. The Cowessess First Nation in southeastern Saskatchewan announced this week that they’ve found 751 unmarked graves on the site of a Catholic Church-run residential school, which was among the last to close in 1996. This is consistent with oral stories shared by Elders and survivors that children were buried there. The federal government is saying it will come up with the money for ground-penetrating radar searches at other schools, so that’s something, but at some point, the Vatican really needs to own their part in this.
Butternut isn’t a fan of cuddles, but he does like supervising while I work on my jigsaw puzzle. He’s been unusually mellow this week. At first I thought it was music-specific, but nope, he’s just chill, as evidenced here by his little feets sticking out.
How has your week been?
