Digging holes in the ground makes more sense than typing stuff on a computer keyboard. (– unnecessary details removed –) There are trees to plant, firewood to chop, my car to repair and that broken tile to replace.

Getting all done, is enough progress for me. All that I want.

If you want to set a spellcheck dictionary for the running session, type

in ~/.vimrc I note
nnoremap Q q
nnoremap q <Nop>
and no longer end up in macro-recording mode, when I forget the colon before 'q'.
