Monday. Lights out again not long after nine to awaken but once to take a leak around midnight and then to awaken for good at ten minutes to six in what seems to be the usual night's sleep. Awake enough, anyway, to set out for breakfast at six forty-five on a cold, but reasonably clear they're saying is going to be sunny day. The eyes watering, but the restaurant open when I arrived before seven. Good, except I remembered, while walking, I was going to delay and get the lab work done that requires fasting this morning as they're saying rain tomorrow and beyond. Less good. Silly me.

The two strips of bacon, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast, we'll know later it it causes any of the “tiredness” problem in another couple of hours. Finished the papers a bit early and so out the door by eight-thirty to take some of the usual pictures (eight Bird scooters below the school, why all Birds?) passing under the 580 overpass and home.

Sunny now. Let's take a bath as we did yesterday and see how the head feels when it's noon. I did note the gate, that had been locked over the weekend blocking me from taking a picture of the construction site just up the street, was open and so out later to take a picture: tired, fried or fuzzy.

Later. It's one o'clock now. A walk up the way to the construction site, the gate open, and so a picture to compare it with the one taken last month on the 5th. There are differences, although it's hard to say exactly what with the tarp covering many of the exposed areas in the earlier photograph. No particular tiredness or ocular stuff going on now that it's after one, so things seem to be OK there.

Evening. Watched a Netflix series, skipping television altogether. With the lab test first thing in the morning we don't have to get out the door until after eight instead of before seven, something a little different. We're praying for little to no rain as I don't want to drive.

The photograph was taken at the Portland Zoo on November 19th with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 24 - 120mm f 4.0 Nikkor VR lens.
