trimmed the rosemary bush. cut a bunch of starters out of it and set them in water to reroot. thinking about trying to "bonsai" a few of them, but mostly they're for kitchen windows. if anyone asks me for rosemary in a month or two, THEY'RE GONNA GET IT.

There are parts of Seattle that have incredible views of the mountain ranges surrounding the city. HeyWhatsThat shows you for a given location + altitude where your horizon is and what you can see on them. At Golden Gardens you can see quite a lot of the Olympics on a clear day, but I never realized how *little* of the range you can actually see. Some of the largest peaks are closer to Port Angeles ( and are behind the relatively diminutive Mt Townsend.

go look at some mountains ya bums.

wrapped my bike bars myself 😍 tried moving my bike bag to behind the saddle but it'll probably go back on my bars, but I love the full photoreflective, it's going to be great for night riding.

consult-buffer can be configured easily with new sources of buffers. org-roam is basically a new source of buffers. this allows you to always have your org-roam at hand.

with the configuration on that page, the "priority" is (existing buffer name, file name, org-roam title) and the load is quite quick as you can see. my fingers are crackling with power, especially if I figure out how to get previews to work >:)


The local tea cafe sold me a kabusecha and told me it’s one of the best green teas I could get my hands on. I told the seller I might call his bluff. I might. Can you tell the difference just by looking at these two shaded senchas? Surely you can taste it if you look hard enough.

Spring Japanese harvest came in today. Spring sencha is such a joy! Looking most forward to trying the “first nightmare” white tea processed from tea buds which suffered an overnight frost in April, and the intern black tea. In the meantime, sipping color in to my life with a shaded sencha. ☺️
I think I will have quite enough green tea to get through to next year or at least fall harvest ;)

did some 3d designing today, working on a cantilever'd stand to put my GPD pocket over my atreus keyboard so that i can keep this little 7 inch laptop in my bag for park days and write in the sun

caves of qud 

I'm a big fan of Yurl, they could kick my ass because they are very tough. caves of qud's new wander mode is a lot of fun because you can run around the world trading stories with folks like this sentient cucumber vine and instead of everything immediately killing me, only very aggressive things will immediately and only cost me an hour's playtime spent in jungles and ruins. you can set more checkpoints, but my personal rule is to not use the manual checkpointing, town saves only. very relaxing way to play, especially since i can roleplay as a very frail explorer-researcher bounding through this world of constant bloody conflict between goatfolk and masked foragers, rifling through trash for secrets

I found a PDF showcasing some of the biggest trees in the olympic national forest a few hours west of Seattle. I visited a few of them recently, and I think you should too. the western side of the olympics is quiet logging country, but the national forest and national park are full of these ancient beautiful trees, hundred year old trees growing out of much older mother logs

the world's largest sitka spruce is estimated to be roughly 1000 years old, the tree stands 191 feet tall, 17.7 feet in diameter, is on private land in Quinalt but there's a public path to see it.

what i believe was once the the world's largest western red cedar is a 20 minute drive north, there's a sign marked "big cedar tree" on the US-101. A storm felled it in 2014, but it's still alive and healing. It's estimated to be 1000 years old, too. the new champion is the Duncan Cedar which I didn't visit.

pictures don't do them justice, obviously. link This Redacted collection compiling all the use of the amen break is pretty neat.
