Wrapping up 2020

I was about to bump the Taskwarrior task for “Post to blog (W)” to next week when I realized this would be the last 2020 post. So okay, I guess that still falls within my decision to do the minimum work-related things between Christmas and New Years, and that Taskwarrior itself is a good topic […]

In transit, arriving late

As with most Etsy sellers, I have a little dashboard that’s showing a bunch of undelivered packages. I’m better off than most – my last shipments went out on the 14th, with what I though was an extremely safe margin for First Class. I sent my gifts to my family at the same time, Priority. […]

Sorry about the mail

I’ve vacation-mode’d the Etsy shop and local-pickup-only’d the self-hosted shop, because things that went out over a week ago are still in transit and family Christmas packages that I sent via Priority haven’t even left West Berlin (08091, not Germany) according to the scanners. I have more family packages that I unwisely hung onto expecting […]

That grouping shipped out yesterday as an order (gift-wrapped, so it’s someone’s Christmas present). I bought a pack of nice fluffy hand towels at Costco, since alas Bed Bath & Beyond no longer carries the […]

Epiphany is underrated

In this year of overwhelmed shipping systems, there’s a pretty good argument for importing Epiphany into the more-or-less-secular version of Christmas. (Bear with me!) Let’s give presents again on January 6. The “Twelve Days of Christmas,” retail version, start on the first of December so you can have a bunch of one-day specials that get […]

Recovery mode

The last big drop of new shop items for the year has happened, with this motley crew of mochi dragons. I have a couple of minky colors to restock in my giant stack of almost-finished dragons, and I’ll try to honor any special requests (such as non-baby mochi dragons). Plus I have two velvet dragons […]
