I'm so glad you're here!

I am your host, Jill Menning, serial hobbyist, notorious plotter and schemer.

Here's what I've been up to lately:

  • Inspired by SvelteKit, I rewrote my router and reorganized the files on my site. I updated this article based on my changes. I also gave the site a big facelift and spent some time writing some new photo gallery components - so much fun!
  • I decided I didn't like my new web site after all, and started a new-new site built with SvelteKit! I'm learning some new stuff along the way, and having a great time. Of course, I inevitably ran into deployment issues (it's new, it's Node, it can get nasty), so I don't think it's quite right for me ... yet?
  • I binged all 24 episodes of 'The Boghouse', a podcast by and about a couple who wanted to buy a theater and got a lot more than they bargained for. Finance! Archaeology! True crime! Shenanigans!
  • I visited my mother in Arizona over Christmas. I dragged her up to the Grand Canyon, which was beyond amazing, and we took up a new hobby: watercolors!
  • My local weaving guild, Contemporary Handweavers of Houston, started up a new spinning group, and we had our first meeting. I'm super excited! It's a great mix of experience levels and interests, and we should all have a fabulous time learning from each other.

And now, your quote of the day:

Insanity is contagious
