Thursday. Lights out after nine, the sound of the storm they've been predicting having now arrived. To sleep early enough, but an uneven night, awakening twice and then awakening for good at six forty-five, thirty minutes later than I'd have liked. Hmm. Not raining when I got up, but serious looking clouds and so hustled out the door to drive to breakfast.

The avocado and (light one the ) cheese omelet, country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast, the rain coming down hard as I was eating and reading the papers, fewer other diners present.

The price of regular had dropped again (the price of oil has dropped ten dollars a barrel in these last few weeks) and so a picture of the price change across the street after breakfast, the rain again having stopped and so a clear drive home to start the laundry. Yes. I started the laundry with but a brief second thought.

Later. Laundry done, folded and hung, the funky dry mouth that came on this morning has gone. Good. I'm wondering about that avocado and cheese omelet. Light on the cheese might still be too much cheese that can lead to funky dry mouth mornings like this one. How many times have I guessed the cheese omelet was the cause of one in the past and how many times have I still eaten one?

Doesn't take you long to forget what happened that last time you had one and so you order another.

Which is amazingly dumb. Maybe a nap will help.

Evening. Not bad, the head clear, two end of month deliveries from Amazon arriving, both of which I'd have canceled for this month if I hadn't been in Portland and let the deadline to skip them around pass on by. Me-oh-my. What the hell, we'll get our act together and skip them for the upcoming month.

I'm thinking of getting up and going by the lab in the morning and then returning to have breakfast. We'll see how that goes.
