Wednesday To sleep not long after ten to awaken for good finally at a quarter to six, getting up and heading out the door under clear skies in a winter coat to arrive at the usual time with two tables taken up by customers, the waitress mentioning she'd saved mine for when I arrived. Appreciated that. Maybe set out a little earlier next time.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast, finishing up before nine to set out for home taking the usual pictures to include a couple of new ones.

A bright sun on the way home, of course, the winter jacket appropriate for walking in and sitting outside for about the first hour, but less so with the sun higher and the day's warming underway. No real problem this morning, but I suspect we'll rethink that tomorrow, the temperature projected to be well over normal for the coming three days.

A couple of pictures of a flat bed truck unloading two AT&T trucks and a car in an odd place in the middle of the road, a picture of another parked car near the apartment because how could I not before taking the selfie in the lobby and then settling down at the computer to finish yesterday's entry and start here.

Later. A bit tired and so lied down for over an hour's nap. Started a movie on the tablet I realized I'd seen before, but had no idea how the thing ended. And that's been the afternoon along with watching the news. No thought to listen to the Senate judicial confirmation hearings that have dominated the public radio stations since they started.

Evening. Watched maybe fifteen minutes of Midsomer Murders, as that was the only thing that was on television I might think to watch, but remembered I'd seen it before and didn't need to see it again and so went to bed.

Lights out and radio off after the six minute ten o'clock news, the bedroom windows wide open and the fan running at the foot of the bed. They're saying into the nineties tomorrow. At least I'm not in the area where they turned off the power earlier this evening. Not sure how losing the power would turn out on such a warm day or night.

The photo up top was taken at the San Francisco 2018 Anime & Cosplay Festival with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
