I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to spend as much time as possible outdoors today.
The weather is getting better in Denver. I’m still expecting snow sometime this spring, but last week we had a number of days that were sunny and 50x, 60s, and 70s. Need some moisture, but while we don’t have it, I’m trying to take advantage of things and enjoy a little more outside time.
I write these ahead of time, so this is for Saturday, 9 Apr.
I had an interview with DotNetDave in the morning, so I caught up on some work before that. I went outside around 12, planning to get a few things done around the house. First was replacing generator battery cables. Slightly unnerving, but something that needed to be done.
Next I worked on some landscaping around the generator, which I’ve been meaning to clean up before everything starts growing like crazy. Hard work, but good to be outside.
Finally, I spent a little time cleaning up the area around the water hydrant in the field. We had it replaced a little over a week ago. I had helped dig part of it up and then filled the hole when I was done, but before I could tamp down the dirt more, we went out of town. Today was cleaning up that area and removing panels.
I also had a helper (not really)
Around this I slipped into town and lifted weights, but I took a walk around the area near the gym to warm up instead of riding the bike to enjoy the outside world.
