Friday. Lights out before ten. I think. Awake at six-fifteen to get up on another cold with somewhat clear skies morning, the weather people saying we'll be getting some rain later, but clear enough and safe enough for me to walk and arrive just after seven, the restaurant open and serving coffee to three or four customers.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast to finish the papers by a quarter to nine. Still cold on the walk home, passing a young woman on a scooter this time. You always wonder when one's going to come up from behind and clip you unaware. But not this morning. Another selfie on the way upstairs to settle in with yesterday's entry and fill in last evening's adventures.

Maybe a haircut today. I'm due and it will get me outside as long as it's not raining.

Later. Raining this afternoon and so nothing but television and tablet. Seems I've done the same thing on these recent sunny days, come to think of it.

Evening. I've a list things to do I've mentioned before that I haven't gotten around to doing for no good reason whatsoever, so we'll at least mention the various pieces of the glucose testing meter have been sitting untouched for much too long and so we'll promise to get around to running the test tomorrow.

And if you don't get around to it tomorrow?

Well, then, we'll have to embarrass ourself by admitting to it here.

That's never bothered you having to admit to it in the past.
