Saturday. Lights out just after nine-thirty last night to awaken at five minutes before seven this morning, not having set the alarm. Been a while since I've slept for so long. Up in the usual routine to turn on the computer and have cereal for breakfast. Like cereal, always have. Finished off yesterdays entry and posted. The blood pressure was 112/70 this morning, similar to what it's been now for months, but after yesterday I was wondering if taking the blood pressure med as usual would cause the lowered blood pressure I'd experienced yesterday some two hours after taking it. Took the med, we'll watch it more closely over the next several hours.

Later. Watched the 2018 Valspar golf tournament on television through until three, checked the blood pressure a number of times, it holding up just fine. And that's pretty much been the afternoon. No thought to go outside, watched some Vera on the tablet, otherwise ate, took a bath and vegetated. Oh, and overloaded on coronavirus news.

The photo up top was taken at the San Francisco 2018 Chinese New Year Parade with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
