The neighborhood was full of garbage cans relaxing after a hard day's work.

I hope you're finding your vacation as relaxing as I am. Today was the first day, other than a few evenings right at the start, when I got up feeling like doing things on-line instead of just reading. I've now caught up on some old Lintian work that had been sitting in my pending folder and, even more importantly, reorganized and updated my to-do list so that I have a clearer idea of what I want to do next (and not just for Lintian).

This was a bad year for reading compared to the last few, and I'm resisting the urge to try to do a flurry of it right at the end of the year to raise meaningless numbers. I'll stay over 52 books read and reviewed for the year, which is one a week and a fairly nice pace. I won't get to my goal of 80 or even close. In some cases that was due to months where I was way too stressed or working far too hard, and that's something that I want to fix for other reasons. In some cases, that's just because I did other things (video games, photography), and that's fine and even a good thing.

Next year will be time to strike a new balance.
