Word from the Outpost

Update: I did manage to peel myself out of the beach chair and get back into the home office this week. I'm here to report that vacation is, indeed, an excellent idea. 

Nothing caught on fire in my absence (although one of my chickens did go broody and apparently didn't eat or drink for a few days), and I came back with a pile of fresh ideas and tangibly more energy. 

This month, I'm thinking of my non-office hours as vacation. No plans on Monday night? That's a vacation. Up early on a Saturday? Vacation. I usually schedule my days from the time I wake up until I go to sleep (I mean this literally—the team can attest that my calendar is obnoxious to behold), but for the month of June this Queen of Routine is taking a massive chill pill. 

How many days can I go without scheduling myself for a morning walk? Stay tuned.

This article promises to teach you about NFTs—especially if you still have a healthy distrust for them—but honestly, I got to the end and I'm still hung up on the fact that they destroyed a Banksy piece.
