The dates aren’t clean, but there’s no time like the present to start.
- Write a book on Performance Tuning for WordPress
- Write a talk on WordPress Performance (to be given at a fall WordCamp)
- Improve soil fertility in garden and prep for fall planting
- Work with son to re-side shed
The first two goals should dovetail well and I’m hoping that I can balance out the effort a little. We were going to do a regular summer garden but time got away from us so we’re compromising with a cover crop this summer and then cool weather plants in the fall (living at 3000 ft in the Sierra Nevada mountains). The shed is actually a bigger task than it might look because we’re going to install a new window and we need to do everything from the plywood sheathing out - sheathing, house wrap, trim, siding, prime, and paint.
Since the shed is really a workshop for my 11 year old son he’s going to work with me to redo it so he can learn basic construction techniques as part of the project.
The dates do work out well in one way - my wife is due with our 6th child on 8/14 so this is actually a good timeline from that perspective.
