I’ve been dabbling around more with this Twitter bot, and actually got it to successfully post a status (text) and media (image) to a Twitter account. Pretty exciting stuff, actually! And amazingly straightforward, given both the tutorial I’m using and the availability of Node Modules.

Bob came by the house today, and put down the remaining boards to finish off the kitchen floor. There’s a small gap that we’re waiting on (right before the East wall), but beyond that the entire kitchen is a solid surface now!
