Week 21/2023: Thinking and planning

Week of 22 May 2023

Thinking and planning

This week was a bit of a thinking and planning week.

Like last week (and, spoiler alert, next week), I did very badly on tracking my habits so there’s no update there. I need to review everything, put a few new habits in and take out ones I’m comfortable enough with that I don’t need to keep tracking them.


My new bike lights came this week. I just wish it weren’t so cold in the morning so I could test them out.

I ordered them from Lumos on their Kickstarter project last year, and when I get them set up, they’ll coordinate with my helmet. They can be set up in any way I want, which means I can have front lights, rear lights and side indicator lights. Handy!

Street corners

In my quest for more photos for my Hobart Street Corners project, I went for a walk around the city.

I had a look at what’s happening at the old Forestry Dome in Melville Street.

This is, apparently, part of Utas’ master plan to move into the CBD.

Week 21 summary

What was the best thing about this week?

Kramstable was in his school’s production of the SpongeBob Musical (yes, it’s a thing). I went along on Saturday with my mother and Lil Sis.

It was fantastic and I’m looking forward to seeing it again next week.

What did I learn this week?

Dogs’ tail bones are called caudal vertebrae
