Wednesday. Lights out before ten, well before ten, to then not awaken until seven, an hour later than usual. Well, I've been wondering if I didn't need to catch up on the sleep. I guess last night it was time to catch up.

A walk to breakfast on another overcast morning, a haircut scheduled for eleven, and so keeping an eye on the clock to get back to the apartment and post yesterday's entry (late) before heading out to catch the bus to the Broadway ATM and then walk on downtown to the City Center and the appointment.

It turns out my barber is having back problems, osteoporosis she's thinking, but whatever it is, it's nasty enough she's cut down the number of people she's scheduling each day to three, I being one of today's three. About osteoporosis I know nothing, but thank her for including me today and wish her well.

Anyway, the haircut done, the NextBus app telling me it wasn't connecting to its web server and couldn't tell me when the next bus would come and so walked back up Broadway, going by the construction site at 17th to right then luck out and catch the bus after taking a few pictures.

Later. For all the sleep last night I've still been feeling tired and so haven't had any thought to do other than watch television and avoiding writing here. Spent about an hour seeing if I could get to sleep, but no luck. No complaints, one or two Law & Order episodes I haven't seen before and nothing wrong with lying in bed whether sleep comes or not.

Better than walking the lake?

Let's not talk about that.

Evening. Watched the Democracy Now I'd slept through this morning, spent some time with the tablet, surprised myself by watching two episodes of Midsomer Murders and then to bed. Let's see if we can match the number of hours we got last night.
