My cat woke me up at the crack of dawn and I've been unable to get back to sleep. So far this morning:

  • I wrote in my journal
  • I watered the garden
  • I thinned the carrots (a long overdue task)
  • The wiring in the sconce in my office seems to have fritzed out (the bulb went out and no matter what bulb I put in, it won't light up)
  • My domain still isn't showing the proper CNAME records, so SendGrid can't authenticate and I can't continue setting up my for-friends Friendica server.


It's a mixed bag, but I'm feeling grouchy about it. I'm about to write a friend a letter; perhaps that will help me feel better.
And I learned the word "sconce". Small victories.
