Thursday. A somewhat more than tired/foggy morning, even though I seem to have gotten to sleep early enough and awakened at six with but one half-awakening episode in between. Still, up, listening to Democracy Now! start off their program with global warming, eliciting more than usual concern, before walking to breakfast on another overcast with a touch of smoke in the air morning, taking a picture if only to take a picture while walking in.

The Eggs Benedict breakfast because I haven't had it in a while, reading the usual stress causing stuff in the papers. I say ‘usual’ in the sense the unusual has become usual, our media adjusting its take on reporting totally off the wall behavior, bending it with no small effort into something that could be called a ‘norm’.

Now, now.

Anyway, what I am calling tired/foggy was well with me on the walk home, taking the usual pictures yes, but feeling woozy and ready to lie down for a nap after a quick (too quick) go through yesterday's entry and posting. Needed a lot more work that this level of tired/fuzzy doesn't provide. At least not this morning.

Later. More of the same. A nap with real sleep, up to listen to the news, but then back to bed to listen to more news, dropping off again into another nap, this lasting on and off throughout the afternoon. Not sure what caused this, maybe don't want to know.

Evening. The tiredness seems to have dissipated if not gone by late afternoon. Again, wish there was something I could blame it on. At least with the ocular migraines I could examine whatever foods I might have eaten earlier on its too be avoided list. Eggs Benedict has contributed to them in the past, but tiredness/fuzziness?

Not for the first time.

Yes, but this one was over the top.
