(This week’s post originally appeared on THWACK.com as a comment during the 2020 December Writing Challenge.)
While it’s a blog post (or 3) of it’s very own, I took some steps toward smart home technology and automation (I hinted at this previously: https://thwack.solarwinds.com/t5/Geek-Speak-Blogs/Writing-Challenge-Day-8-My-New-Hobby-Lessons-Learn… ).
That said, what I’ve really focused on more than anything else during this pandemic is my Hebrew reading skills. (This will warm the cockles of @yumdarling‘s heart.) Being separated from a regular minyan (quorum of Jewish folks needed for communal prayers; not to be confused with minions, who are cute and useful but sadly do NOT count toward a Jewish quorum.) has forced me to make do with what I have. Which, if I’m being brutally honest, are the reading skills of your average 1st grader.
But over the months, and under the sometimes-supportive-but-often-gleefully-strict children, my reading skills have improved.
That’s something, right?
