Again,  I just cannot be bothered to be on here right now.  I've had an  incredible day out hiking in the Rocky Mountains. We did a beautiful 8 mile hike around some stunning lakes. The weather was absolutely perfect - not a cloud in the sky!

Now, I'm back home - I checked in with work and did about 3 hours of solid code clean up.  This felt great after last night's slog where I managed to get a lot done but  my code was a mess. It's always nice to review code the next day with fresh eyes. Almost always you will see things you didn't the day before. You'll also be able to remove a lot of redundant code too.

Now I caught up  on the Wimbledon highlights as well as the WSOP Main  Event highlights and I'm feeling ready for some yoga, reading and bed.

It was a fantastic day, but I really do need to figure out a better way to make it through 200 words a day. I hope these late night, last minute posts don't turn to resentment for not being prepared. It kinda feels that way, but it also feels like a normal thing I do every day.... Oh well, time will tell.

    @jacklyons - it’s like mental flossing

      @brianball haha yeah, it's a good feeling and I'm at least glad that I'm over the "building habit" phase. Either way, if it sucks, it's still part of the day. Do you feel that way?

      @jacklyons - Over the years, I've worked my idea muscle quite a bit. While I'm not the master of long, detailed and well-researched articles, ( not even something I've spent time on ) -- 200 words is like making toast. Very straightforward and painless.
