Rainbow's End

Wednesday. It was too late to be turning out the lights last night after watching some horrible thing on the tablet, but at least we only awakened briefly twice to then awaken a good half hour before the alarm, getting up, spending time posting yesterday's entry and only then heading out for breakfast, meeting the bus at the stop across Grand. A picture of the lake just before the bus arrived.

A walk back to the apartment on a sunny, but again chilly morning, whatever rain we may have had last night no longer in evidence. Large white cumulus clouds, maybe something more coming, maybe not, and so to bed for a nap. I think we can manage a nap.

Later. An hour's sleep before getting up and taking a bath. Tired. Should be after last night.

Out the door to get outside, deciding to walk to the morning café for lunch, stopping to sit by the lake running out of steam. Hmm. Our ever present or much present guest, this tired business. A chicken salad sandwich, a sugar cookie and lemonade out at a table in the sun and a bus back to the apartment stop, but then going on to take pictures at the apartment house construction site. Had I not done it then it wouldn't have gotten done.

Another nap, sleeping close to another hour, finally up and now feeling better, although it does take time for it all to come together once we're awake. Checked out a new series they'd added to the tablet I'd not heard of before, but couldn't get my head around it. How many television series have there been on cable I've never heard of before, let alone seen? How many are out there in the tablet pipeline that might grab my attention? Maybe, as the mind ages, they'll all soon be hunky dory and we'll never run out.

Now, now.

It is a nice day: bright sun, not as chilly as it's been these last couple of days, the sliding balcony glass door open to the screen.

Evening. A Death In Paradise I've probably seen before, but certainly didn't remember who'd done it, although I did seem to recall many of the individual scenes. Visually, anyway, not so much what was going on. Then to bed.

Otherwise a late afternoon and evening of watching this and that on the tablet, both before the Paradise showing and after, with lights out well before ten. Which is good, sensible, so we'll declare another slow to start day has ended well, here at rainbow's end.
