Three positive things, day sixty three

Tags: 

Back on a normal schedule again, today was the first work day of my week, and Tuesday.

The first positive thing was something that happened with #awewsomewife when she took Aidan to his apple-picking job. There were so many apples on the ground that she went from walking around with Kian to helping Aidan pick apples. She also asked Kian to help, and he'd walk around, see an apple and then say "apple - peekabo, I found you!" I wish I could have seen it, but it was quite the story :)

The second positive thing was Liam and Kian doing their "I'm Batman!" / "I'm Groo!" duet at lunchtime - it helped perk the day's mood up a bit.

The third positive thing was.. being Tuesday - my ukulele class of course :) Tonight we focused a little bit on some tunes that the instructor's hoping to have us join him in playing at a local community event ran by a local church this weekend; I'm not sure we'll be going, but it was good practice.

Today was Wednesday and that meant...

The first positive thing was Kian picking up a potato from a box of spuds his mum had brought home from the store, and then just running around the house with it. I don't know whether to blame that on some genetic memory of his Irish heritage that tells him potatoes are important, or he was just being a toddler, but either way.. lol!

The second positive thing was doing a security release for a Drupal plugin/module I maintain. I'm always impressed by how much emphasis the Drupal community places on security, and it's always a pleasure to be a part of it.

The third positive thing was going bowling with my friend and coworker, Matt Goodwin, and our families. We actually focused even less on the bowling this time that we did last time, but we still had fun.

We had a pretty good Saturday.

The first positive thing was Kian running over to me and saying "Daddy, I have a neen na-neen!" - I have a green dragon. While we haven't been pushing him to learn colors, it's neat that he's picking them up on his own.

The second positive thing was getting a really great picture from #awesomewife of all three kids together, with all three of them smiling and not pulling silly faces :) I've set it up as my laptop's desktop pic and will probably see about framing it, it's that good!

The third positive thing was Kian having his first apple. Now, he's had apple chunks before, but this was the first time that he got to sit down and just chew into a full apple on his own. And oh my but did he enjoy it! I had to direct him on which parts to eat because he was working his way through the seeds in the middle, and he had a shower afterwards because he the apple juice got everywhere, but he now has a renewed interest in apples :)

So that was another Wednesday.

The first positive thing was getting to our local monthly Drupal group again. We had a nice turnout today - seven attendees (might have been eight, only I forgot to tell someone).

The second positive thing was Kian picking up two Lego Duplo cows and saying "two cow"! Not "I have cows", specifically "two cows" :-) I thought that was pretty cool.

The third positive thing was... this is the fiftieth post in this series! Woohoo! Lets roll on to 100!

So, how was your Monday?

The first positive thing was.. going to the dentist? He's a really nice guy, he jokes around with the customers & staff, and he fills these holes in my teeth with a plant-based goo that solidifies via UV light. Neat.

The second positive happened when we were having dinner. Kian had some food from his mom's plate but they'd finished everything on her plate. I motioned that I'd get some from the kitchen, my awesomewife asked Kian if he wanted some more potatoes and said.. "Daddy's potatoes?" and he immediately turned around and looked at my plate with this hungry stare - I couldn't do anything but laugh :-)

The third positive thing was doing Drupal training with our friend and my #awesomewife again. Tonight we quietly dipped our toes into content architecture via content tagging.
