Don't Know

Wednesday. Another decent night's sleep to awaken just before six and set out walking to breakfast on another clear and cold morning. That's generally the case: the mornings through breakfast are usually clear headed and upbeat, a good time to flutter about promising this clearer world I'll do this and do that. To get off my butt, in other words. The rest of the day through the end of the afternoon is then spent reneging until evening, when the head seems to clear up again.

I suspect there's some artifice in there somewhere and that's not totally accurate.

Closer than you'd think. Fits the state of the head this morning.

Scheduled for another Protime blood test later today at one. The result for the last one was back to within bounds and so they're checking after three weeks instead of the two weeks we were doing when the reading was off. Another good one today and we're back to an every four weeks schedule.

Later. Still reasonably clear headed, none of the usual head in a “bubble” complaints. Well, not much of a bubble, so we'll say none.

A bus to Broadway and then a walk to the lab, taking one or two pictures of the apartment house construction project as they were pumping cement into forms. It's a big project and obviously needs a lot of cement, two trucks at a time pouring it into the pump with a line of others waiting in line to take their place.

A walk home. Warmer on the way home, although I'd started out needing a scarf, sweater and winter coat. Warm enough to turn on the fan for ten minutes to cool off when I got home.

Evening. With the walk to the lab and back today we can count it as having gotten something done in an afternoon, contrary to our usual routine. We'll not emphasize the time spent watching television.

Watched some Democracy Now! as I always do, played a little guitar, emphasis on the little. The Charlie Rose interview was with Amy Schumer and, although I suspect it would have been interesting to watch, I bailed for bed. I've read about her, but have never watched her show. Why, I don't know.

The image up top was taken while walking along Broadway to the lab today with a Nikon D500, mounted with a 24-120mm f 4.0 VR Nikkor lens.
