Done It

"Sunday Lights out late last night so to sleep pretty much right away to awaken then at five forty-five and listen to Counterspin at six and TUC Radio at six-thirty before getting up and setting out to drive to breakfast on another overcast/foggy/smoky morning, the Air Quality Index showing Unhealthy For All here in Oakland. Still can't smell the smoke, but I can feel a certain seemingly mild “disturbance” in the throat and chest after sitting outside for breakfast. Such is life. One hopes life.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee because that's what appealed, the weight has been behaving rather nicely these days, finishing up after nine to walk to the car, snap a photograph of the succulent sitting on the restaurant's patio fence and drive straight home to take the selfie in the lobby before looking at yesterday's non-entry before posting.

Later. Finished what appears to be the last season of Borgen. Interesting series. I mentioned it to my sister when we talked on the phone yesterday, I'll be curious what she thinks of it. Otherwise that's been the afternoon. Didn't watch any football or news programs, just spent the time with the tablet and on the web.

Evening. Watched a Masterpiece Theater program at nine I've not heard of before on PBS. Well, watched the first hour of something called Van Der Valk On Masterpiece - Love In Amsterdam in English, albeit difficult to cut through their accents. Not really sure in what country it was set, but I managed to watch it for an hour before bailing and going to bed thinking getting enough sleep was more important than learning who'd done it.

The photo up top was taken at the San Francisco 2017 LGBTQ Pride Parade with a Nikon D5 mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
