I actually had the blog posting option open on my laptop last night to post. I was working along on some of my writing. I had gotten my days NaNo session done and had worked on the other story I've been writing. I got on a roll on that one and when I finally took a breath and looked at the clock, it was after midnight. D'oh! So, I didn't post here last night as I planned, but here I am tonight.
I have been gone all day on a thrift run. My friend got off at noon and he and I went on our thrift run, Reidsville, Eden, and then Martinsville. I got a lot of goodies and some useful things, too! I found a wireless mouse almost exactly like the one I have brand new for $2.99. I don't need one now, but it never hurts to have a spare. It is Logitech just like the one I use every day with my MacBook Pro. I like the wireless ones a lot. I got four candles, a lot of crafting stuff (card stock, scrapbook papers, a whole bag of assorted stampers, and some envelopes and notepads. I also got other assorted things. It was a good run. In the last Goodwill, there was one of those metal pencil/pen holders that had pencils in it. Brand new, Ticonderoga pencils just chilling in it. I picked it up and got the pencils and the container for .99¢! I love Ticonderoga pencils so 24 brand new ones in a pencil cup? Yes, please! One of the useful things I got was a George Foreman grill in the Salvation Army store in Eden. The inside looked brand new. Mine has gotten where the coating is starting to come off (the non-stick stuff). I saw this one for $7.99. I plugged it in and the light came on so I figured I would take a chance with it working. I was going to replace mine with a new one but this was a lot cheaper! If it works, that will be great. It was a fun trip and I came home and unloaded all my goodies, looked through them, and then got to work on today's NaNo session. I hit my 10,000-word mark yesterday! Yay!
I may write a little on my other work. I am running another disk recovery app on the Mac. I'm hoping it will let me recover at least my old Scrivener files and THIS time, I'd definitely going to back them up on Dropbox and the MBP! I started the lately scan today before I left and it's still running. That is over ten hours so far! Sheesh! The bad thing with this one is there is no progress bar. I hope it's still scanning away. Who knows?
