the shortest days of the year have come and gone. it was good times and a bit too much food along with a smattering of covid paranoia and keeping half an eye on the weather. once again i have dusted off the calendar project, (i struggle to maintain a relationship with a calendrical system that features 12 months and the last one is named after the number 10). that makes today the first day of my 8 day work week - prior efforts have sputtered out due to turbulence at the gregorian interface. so anyway, here goes - first day of the work week - the year , as they say, of somebody's lord 2022.
