I am grateful for an evening with Coop and his fellow Beavers, running all over the Empress hotel and Victoria Convention Centre. Ostensibly, we were there to look at the displays of Christmas trees. In reality, I was there to try to keep track of Coop (which I was able to do most, but not all the time). Coop was there to run rampant and as fast as he could in polite company with the other kids. A good time was had by all, and it was all topped of by a bus ride home on the top and in the front of one of our city’s double decker busses.
I am grateful for learning new things. I’m checking out angular.js for some
potential smart phone app development. I’m getting to be an old dog, but I’m always grateful to learn a new trick.
I’m grateful for little things that make life easier. I’ve been using to-do lists more lately, and I’ve been breaking tasks down into many subtasks. Sometimes adding that detail to my workflow slows me down enough to think things through a bit more thoroughly. I’m not sure if the end result is a better product, but I am sure that I have a much more realistic expectation of the time it will take to get stuff done.
