Off to bed

Skipped the gym this evening.  I much better at the gym in the morning, and I may have to find a way to get back to a morning schedule.

Less-than-optimal day at work.  I was waiting for some spreadsheets to prepare for a meeting and they were never done, and now we have had to push the meeting to the end of the week, so we lost some good time for no apparently good reason.  It’s a little frustrating.

I was hoping to finish Frameshift today, but I’ve still got about 100 pages to go.  Spent much of the evening working on notes and research for the new story, "Origins".  No actual writing of the story, but I should be able to start soon.  In any case, I’m about 230 pages through the book.

Took the telescope out tonight to look at the moon, Venus and Jupiter, all in alignment.  Some nice looks at the moon.  Venus and Jupiter seemed to come in very fuzzy.  I’m certain I was doing something wrong.

Kelly and I watched two more episodes of From the Earth to the Moon.  And earlier in the day, I listened to mabfan  on Hour of the Wolf.  Great interview.

Picked up a new wireless keyboard for the iMac at home.  The old wireless keyboard, more than four years old, was worn out and dead.
