#BlogElul 5779 is coming to a close, and it’s time to start preparing for the approaching year, 5780. This is my favorite time of the Jewish year for a lot of reasons, and I appreciate the fact that, (unlike the secular year), the Jewish year provides a month of preparation time to think about what happened and how we acted during the previous year and the improvements to our character we want to make in the ecoming year.
As in other years, I’m going to attempt to participate in
#BlogElul, a journaling project that has existed since 2010 and which has spread beyond blogs and is now part of social media during this time of year. There are daily prompts for the whole month, and I expect my musings on these to be more stream-of-consciousness than anything else, because while the prompts consist of only one word, those single words can mean a lot of things.
I’m also looking forward to reading everyone’s posts and pondering those. This is the second day, so I already have some catching up to do, but this should be very enlightening.

It really does look like I’m going to close all my rings today without any extra work and I am much more excited about this than I really should be. I happened to have my phone off Do Not Disturb this morning and so I didn’t miss the weekly summary. I went with the goal adjustment recommendation, which this week was a bit lower than where I had my move goal set, and I’m going to try to meet this new goal for a week so I can get perfect stand/move/exercise. If I manage this then I’ll see what the summary suggests next week and proceed from there.
This is the latest, and not last, in my informal series of posts on under-engineered controls. Generally I am looking at the minimum amount of CSS necessary to style native HTML controls while also retaining or improving accessibility and honoring different user preferences.
Glad to see I’m not the only one who uses “boxen” as plural for “boses”.
Someone needs to write a "What to do when you meet a sighted person" post.
