I had a wonderful day on Friday. I woke about 10 o’clock so much for my S.A.V.E.R.S project. The reason I woke up late is I stayed up most of the night working on my website. It is so easy to go down that rabbit hole so I will write another affirmation,
- I enjoy going to sleep at 10 o’clock, getting eight hours of sleep, waking up at 0600 hours to start my day and work on my novel.
The first affirmation, I wrote for S.A.V.E.R.S was,
- I will achieve all my goals and dreams by practicing S.A.V.E.R.S every morning at 6 AM
All my affirmations are listed on my LINKS page. Eventually, when I have 20 of them, and I will print them out on business cards to carry with me. Anyways, I copied the crossword, Sudoku, and jumble puzzle from the daily newspaper and some D & D character sheets from the web. I also created some blank character sheets for my novel then I took a 3′ three-ring binder and my hole punch to The Game Closet, which I am now using as my office. While drive there I thought it might be a good idea to write an algorithm for my Open Office spreadsheet for two reasons: 1) My mind doesn’t seem to be wired to solve anagrams and 2) It would be an interesting exercise and would keep my mind active, getting me back to programming somewhat.
Arriving at my destination, I first went to Dollar General, next door, to buy some document protectors, three-ring wide rule paper, and dividers. I also bought some trail mix before entering my “office.” I was surprised to find Pete there as he doesn’t work on the weekends and the place was practically empty. I thought it was Saturday (lack of sleep) and set up a table with my hole punch, binder, and Dollar General supplies to set up the binder.
- Daily newspaper puzzle with blank Sudoku sheets that I created
- The draft manuscript of my novel
- Novel related tasks to do
- Blank novel character sheets
- Wide rule paper
I started working on the Sudoku puzzle, silver level and completed 49% of it. I searched the web and found an app that would solve anagrams but it didn’t quite help me with the Jumble puzzle although I did solve the anagrams of the four hint words. I didn’t realize until this morning that the composite answer was also an anagram
Later on, I met Chris Strange who patiently taught me the basics of Magic the Gathering. He let me win but now I am in a position to at least ask an intelligent question about the game I am going to be slow for a while until I master all the nuances of the game.
Coming home, I updated the links on my website (another rabbit hole) and went to sleep around 3 am. Today I am going back to The Game Closet, to see how busy it is on the weekends. If they have it, I will buy the Player’s Handbook 5ed for D & D so I can roll a character and perhaps join a group to play the game
