Now that I’ve turned in book three, I’ve started working on all the admin tasks I’ve put off forever—specifically, updating the web server. The old machine served me well, but it was time to update to the latest and greatest. You shouldn’t see much change on your side (hopefully!! 🤞🏻), but the backend tech stack was upgraded and the server IP address changed.
And the site may be down a bit more than usual this week, because at a certain point I just said YOLO and switched over the DNS, which means I’m now testing in production. Whee!
To test a little more, here are a couple pictures of the animals taking advantage of the water bowl I put out. It’s been super hot and dry here, even more so than usual, so I put out water for our local deer, but we’ve had a few other visitors as well. :)
The pictures are a little blurry because I pulled them from a video, but there’s a fawn and a coyote!! This is the first time I’ve seen a coyote in our yard, though I hear them in the valley behind our house all the time.
We’ve also seen a fox and raccoon, but I forgot to save the videos. 😭
Do you have wildlife where you live? We mostly have deer (So! Many! Deer!), but thanks to the water bowl, I’m seeing a lot of other critters!
