Sunday. I was expecting rain, having checked with the weather people more than once yesterday, as they were saying heavy rains starting last night, but awoke this morning after a decent night's rest to find not clear skies, but clouds that didn't say rain. Until later. Not too much later.

My worry was the car battery might be too low to start the car this morning and it turned over in a kind of hiccup that told me the battery was struggling. Now to find out if it will retain enough of a charge when we start it again in front of the restaurant after breakfast. We'll have another existential moment tomorrow morning when we're planning on driving to get the blood tests that require fasting beforehand. Unless we do something about the battery between now and then.

Had breakfast, read the papers and the car started. No problem. Until tomorrow morning when we repeat the process. Unless we do something in this world I now live it where I do very little about preparing for what's obviously/maybe coming over the horizon.

Later. And the rains arrived. As advertised. And so an afternoon feeling even more tired, tired enough to lie down and watch two series on the tablet through most of the afternoon. Really tired. Oddly tired. I kinda hope this is going to get better before too long.

Charged a device that's designed to start a car with a dead battery just in case I drive to the lab in the morning, but find the car won't start when returning home. Read the instructions on how to it works, as I've had it for a while, but have yet to use it. Best I did.

Evening. And so the day has gone. I did watch the first episode of Elementary that started at five, started the second episode, but decided to crash on the bed and continue with whatever on the tablet instead. Tired. Too tired to sit in a chair in front of a television set, no way I was going to write anything here. If this continues at this level and I'm going to start worrying.
