After four years of using OS Leopard, my computer has finally upgraded to Snow Leopard. (The Apple Store did it for free!) While everyone else is using Lion, I know, I’m behind the times. But Caspian is happy with his updated OS and new battery. Pretty much good as new — he might see me to the end of the PhD and beyond after all.
Last night was a mini-Fun Day Group reunion at Alamo Cafe. Good food and good friends. If it weren’t right at Christmastime, and if I were here longer, it would be great to see each other again.
This afternoon, I talked my dad into cycling to the local nature reserve, Mud Creek park. We walked for about an hour and a half, enjoying the balmy 17 C / 63 F afternoon. The park was mostly deserted and we kept crossing paths with a herd of deer, and we saw a few hawks.
