Working on a secret project. No spoilers but I’m actually smiling when opening my mail today. I’m not going to read or watch any news today… I want to stay in this bubble as long as I can

My brother in-law telling me about Jelle’s marble runs on ESPN has to be in my top 10 best things to happen this week

Survived FaceTime Uno! I lost

Attempting to play uno with kids and grandparents via FaceTime. If you don’t hear from me again… #stayathome

IT teams: if you’re struggling to support a flood of WFH - don’t compromise on security or performance. Akamai’s EAA adds CDN performance and protection to your enterprise applications and scales well. This is how we are eliminating our own VPN usage at Akamai. #zerotrust #novpn #killthepassword

In case there was any doubt that $deity loves the Welsh… power and cable restored in time for the anthem 🏉 #WALvENG

Could not have picked a better author lecture, Q&A and book signing for my kids first than Tui T Sutherland (Wings of Fire). So much excitement in the room. An exciting announcement too!

Will I always participate in Micro Monday? Probably not… but my recent follows - not one regret! :)

I stumbled at today’s #mbfeb hurdle. So here’s my dinner (well, part of it)

When it gets too dark to play catch. Try by the headlights. #mbfeb prompt is double

Throw back to when I took Flat Stanley on a tour of Boston. Here he is at South Station. I do not miss that commute #mbfeb

#mbfeb prompt is spectacle. I’ve been wearing glasses for… 14 years now. Still not used to them.

On this weeks Connected podcast they talk about Beats Music features coming to Apple Music. The feature I miss the most is “The Sentence”. As someone who listens to podcasts more than music, the sentence was an easy music discovery tool that fit into my mood.

Happy 11th birthday to Abby. I get so much out of watching your progress through life. Love you! #mbfeb

After almost 20 years I’m still not used to cooking with cups instead of a scale. #mbfeb

Soon this empty space will be filled with Sapporo #mbfeb

I’m opposed to thinking too hard about the #mbfeb prompt words. So here’s a selfie of my youngest and myself waiting for the older kids to finish their piano lessons

Made custard for the first time in almost 10 years(!). Waiting for it to cool to see if the kids like bananas and custard as much as I do (did?) #mbfeb

A brief rest on a busy Sunday #mbfeb
