Day 55: New Bujold!

So I went to a Zoom Al-anon meeting this morning at 10, which was very nice. As an extra added bonus, I know know the Zoom listing for the Saturday Serenity meeting, the one I used to go to on Saturdays, so in the future I can first go to the one I went to today from 10 - 11, and then go to the other from 11 on. So that's nice.

After that I went on-line and discovered that the new Bujold Penric and Desdemona novella was ready for download, so I, chortling, ran to my Nook and snagged it. But I showed great restraint and did not begin reading it immediately, instead I Skyped the FWiB. We had a very nice long talk, and then after I went to my bedroom to read. But again I was restrained, I made myself finish what I was reading first, Chrystallia. Which was... not good. But now I have read it.

And then I read the new Bujold, which is called The Physician of Vilnoc. It's the eighth Penric and Desdemonia novella, and utterly wonderful as they all are. And a medical mystery, which is something I always enjoy anyway.

So just when I was coming to a very major point I got a notice on facebook that the FWiB had finally signed up and was making a friend request. So I took a few moments there. but then got back to the story. But afterward I sent him some suggestions for facebook friends, but the only one he took me up on was [personal profile] mashfanficchick.

By that time it was getting on towards after 6, so I came back out to the living room, had some yogurt and Girl Scout cookies, and puttered on line til 7:30 or so, when I got a glass of mead and continued puttering until the Thurber reading at 8:00. I was happy to discover that he had cancelled yesterday's reading as well, so I didn't miss anything.

After the reading I had dinner, and went to the bedroom after where I fiddled with my phone until it was time to call Oldest brother, who is doing well.

I am a little bit worried about Oreo, as he is sneezing quite a bit. However, aside from that he seems fine, so I'm not very worried, just enough to keep an eye on him for awhile.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWib.

2. My meetings and the people at them.

3. New Bujold.

4. Girl Scout cookies.

5. Oldest Brother.

6. Facebook.
