Using Fiery Feeds, and enjoying it. Subscribed for a year.

If someone gets me to stop using Reeder, this one might be it. On the desktop I’m used to Feedbin on the web, so the fact that my Air won’t run Fiery Feeds doesn’t really bother me.

๐ŸŒถ๏ธ Just like that, a cartoon we were watching turned into today’s photo for the challenge!

  • ๐ŸŒป We had planned on changing our weekend routine, but ended up in the same spot. There’s some construction work going on at my in-laws, and family moving into the house next door to them, so things are a bit hectic, but the little one would miss her grandparents so much, we just went. It was a good as the ones before. Brothers-in-law visited, the little one loves it when they do. Having a full house is something she lives for.

  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Father’s Day. A couple of presents from tinyMovieStar, and all the love a father could wish for. It was awesome, our baby is, and I’ve said it before, the sweetest.

  • ๐ŸŒก๏ธ tinyMovieStar has a fever for a couple of days. She’s not one to complain, so it’s a bit harder to figure out what’s going on. She just gets a bit hot, and when asked if something hurts, or feels odd, she says “No, everything is fine”. She gets to spend the whole day at home, playing with us and napping, and she loves that. If the thermometer could be tricked by a three year old, I would suspect foul play.

  • ๐Ÿ“บ Yes, Schitt’s Creek. It’s a long show. On the YouTube front, Hot Ones, with Pedro Pascal. Also some Seth Meyers, and a few clips from The Daily Show. Vice Principals, saw a few episodes, and will come back for more. And we did manage to move along with F1: Drive to Survive. We watched 2 1/2 episodes, not bad!

  • ๐ŸŽ™ Hacked, Really Specific Stories, with Gaby as guest. Swindled has a new episode out, and it’s also a good one, as they usually are. Dynamite Doug still going. Still have a few waiting around, but it’s harder to listen to them when tinyMovieStar is home, not going to kindergarten.

  • ๐Ÿ’ด Actively trying to find more work, now that one of my clients went out of business, and the rest of them are having a lot less assignments. Inflation is a bitch, and I also decided to play fair with the apartment rent, and kept the old rent for the new tenants. So, not an ideal situation.

  • ๐Ÿ›’ The Shop is open. Don’t think I’ll get a lot of foot traffic, but it’s on. Later, if things work out, I’ll get a domain for it, and pay for a tier where the platform keeps no commission on sales. Would be great, but can’t afford that tier now. If you’re looking for a photo to hang on your wall, feel free to visit. If there’s one you’d love to have, but it’s not available in the shop (still working on setting things up), get in touch, I’ll add it. Trying to figure out how all this works, but I think I might have done this a while back. So far, not a single one has been sold, so… maybe I was right.

  • ๐Ÿ“ท Micro.blog Photo Challenge is on the second half. Some hard ones this year, since I’m trying to get them for the challenge, and not pulling them from the archive. Quality, on mine, is lower than on previous attempts. Photos for days 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24, have been posted.

  • ๐Ÿ’ฌ ChatGPT. I had to play around with it. Everyone is talking about it, even family members who usually pay no attention to tech stuff. It is fun, I’ll say that. And they seemed to have a lot of use cases for it, including replacing them on a few of their work task. It’s great when you actually witness people making themselves obsolete.. Will probably mess with it again, it’s fun.

  • ๐Ÿ“ท Newspaper conferences. Got a call late in the evening, and it only came through because my editor is on the vip list, that bypasses the notification ban of my sleep focus mode. Anyway, a full day shooting the yearly conference the newspaper organizes on its birthday. A couple of other things to do later in the week, for the agency, so it turned out pretty good in the end. Hopefully these will become regular, as the struggle is real.

  • ๐Ÿฅฐ tinyMovieStar’s godmother visited, from the UK. It’s always a thrill when she’s back, we miss her a lot, even though she’s been living there for quite a while now. Thankfully she flies back often, but of course not as often as we’d like. The little one loves her, and she get all sweet and cuddly when she spots her coming after months without seeing her.

No time to find photos during the day, the only way to keep doing this is dumpster diving in the archive at 2AM.

Sorry about that, here goes…

So… called the national health hotline (Saรบde24). I think every country should have this service, with the kind of care, and all around niceness and professionalism, we get from them. It’s simple amazing.

๐Ÿ”ฎ Itโ€™s almost as if she knows when Iโ€™ll have to leave for work! Whenever Iโ€™m shooting an assignment, she gets a little feverish.

โ˜• Getting ready to leave. Photos must be taken!

๐Ÿคž Hoping the little one is feeling better today, the night was still a feverish one.

๐Ÿ’ป Little one finally asleep, time to edit the photos from today's shoot.
