I’ve been trying to unify my microblog (https://jonhays.me) and my longform site (https://jonathanhays.me). I like how it’s coming together. @manton has really improved Micro.blog’s customization abilities!

I just spent way too long looking at/researching Varangian runestones. Someone should totally write a novel about these. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varangian_runestones

“Eat at a local restaurant tonight. Get the cream sauce. Have a cold pint at 4 o’clock in a mostly empty bar. Go somewhere you’ve never been. Listen to someone you think may have nothing in common with you. Order the steak rare. Eat an oyster. Have a negroni. Have two. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink with them anyways. Eat slowly. Tip your server. Check in on your friends. Check in on yourself. Enjoy the ride.” –Anthony Bourdain.

So, I built something this week. It’s a Swift API/library for integrating with the Awair family of air quality monitors. I’ll try to write more about it later, but if you’re curious, you can find it here: https://airaware.dev

Found this in my attic this weekend.


Happy birthday!

The blueberries have finally been frozen. We will survive the winter!

Working outside for a bit this morning.

For those wondering, I’m on an inflatable sloth…

Holy water

Being back in the gym for hoops has made it harder to balance running. My pace and distance are definitely suffering. 🏃‍♀️😰

I sometimes get asked what software tools we use. Here’s an updated list: jonathanhays.me/2021/07/0…

Dinner alone on the beach.

Suddenly retro… 🏀
