This is another exciting day! My new MacBook Air arrived this afternoon, exactly when they said it would arrive. I'm a bit dubious about a supply chain from Shanghai, Anchorage, Toronto, Seattle, Richmond, BC, to Calgary, to get to my home. But I guess they know how long it will take. I've hooked it up, and migrated all the iMac data, hooked up Dropbox, and got the new novel open in Scrivener. The wireless access works. So far this has been a perfect experience. I'm still getting used to a firm touch on the touchpad to make it go click. I'll need to read up on all the gestures.
The main use for it will be writing. At first NaNoWriMo will consume much of my time, then I'll have two novels to play with. The Plant Novel is easily a novel length, and much more. Just lately it seems to be morphing into a bit of an odd romance. I hope the crew doesn't mind me giving them a break for a while as I pound out this new thing. I intend on keeping the blog up to date, but things might be a bit short.
Plus I was offered a renewal at work for another year. That is a HUGE Yay in my books! I don't talk much about work here, mainly because I know most of my readers would be bored to tears at the intricacy of the data issues. None the less, I like the work, I like my boss, and the people who see my work are liking it.
There's a puzzling thing happening tonight, in that kids in costume are banging on the door demanding treats. Some cultural tradition, I guess. The cats are fascinated by the whole thing, and many of the little kids are fascinated by them.
Oh, and Wednesday I had a nice swim in the morning, along with some water running. My back still wasn't letting me really power through flip turns, but at least it wasn't like the bad old days when I was figuring it out. I'd done some stretching on Tuesday evening that really seemed to help.
Then in the evening the yoga class was wonderful! Just what I needed. The seated cat cow thing was a total failure, but then, there isn't much to it for me even when my back is normal.
Wish me luck in the NaNoWriMo!
