Art & Life

Thursday To sleep after ten to awaken well after six to turn on Democracy Now! and check the weather outside. Fog, but no rain. Good. Up to walk to breakfast on a foggy (and therefore not overly cold) morning, arriving to find the restaurant open and all the patio tables in place and so settled in and started on the papers.

The chicken-apple sausage, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee thereby throwing caution to the wind, finishing up well after nine to walk home taking the usual pictures, the fog and overcast making the exposure adjustments at least interesting when comparing them to those needed under say a bright sun. Felt fine, good energy, no complaints.

Home to take the selfie and settle in at the computer to post yesterday's entry, process the morning pictures and start here. The sun has broken through now that it's approaching noon, need to check what the weather people are forecasting. No rain through the weekend, I seem to recall.

Later. A lady arrived to run the Protime test at two, the blood was over the limit on the thin side, so best I'd gotten it done. An adjustment to the meds and we're back on track again.

Clear skies and sunny this afternoon.

Evening. Began watching Vera at eight, realized from the first scene I'd see it before, but had no idea what came after, although I did recall the plot line as it evolved. Still no idea what was coming, though, who'd done the dirty deed and why until the very end. The usual situation in other words. To bed then before ten.
