Long day

Yesterday was pretty busy.

I worked on the dex most of the day yesterday, and got pretty far along. I managed to pull the json fetcher into a React context and was able to pull that into the menu generator. I was tough to figure out, but it works. So now I just need to shore up the data map that we’re using so that the menu renders properly, then I get to move on to the token and market mints, which looks like it’s going to be an entirely different beast.

After I was done ‘working’ I wound up playing video games and staying up too late. There were tons of games that looked interesting but I didn’t want to buy anything with my unfinished collection being what it is, so I played a demo and went back through some games in my catalog until I was well and tired.

Today we took a road trip out to visit my dad. He invited us to breakfast at the VFW hall this morning, so we all trekked out there this morning. I don’t think the four of us have been out there together as a family, and I always get a sense of nostalgia driving around out there to places I haven’t been in some twenty years.

The breakfast itself was mediocre. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, potatoes, and saltfish. The girls ate grits. It’s always good to see my dad, but I’m not sure why he wanted us to go there. Hell, I would have preferred Cracker Barrel myself. Still, it was good to get out.

We also managed to knock off a couple more things off our todo list while we were out there. We stopped by a farm store to pick up some pumpkins. They had a corn maze and farm animals: cows, a pig, a couple goats. The girls enjoyed it, I spent too much on pumpkins and even bought a pie that I have no intention eating. On the way back we stopped by the thrift store to unload some things and pick up some clothes for Elder. She got a good deal on one of those two-wheeled skateboard things called a RipStik.

After we got home Missus and I finished watching Dune, it was really good. I’m almost tempted to read the book again just so I can go and read some of the sequels. I think I have enough on my plate right now though, I’m still reading the Foundation series.

I spent the rest of the afternoon reading through Anchor’s example contracts, just reading and reading them, trying to understand just what’s going on with them. Some of them are really complicated and I’m trying to figure out which ones to look at first. It’s slow going, but I’m probably going to head back up there and pound out another hour of it, again and again until they make sense.

Right now we have about an hour before the girls need to go to bed, so I’m going to spend some more time with them, maybe play a card game or dominos.
