After Tomorrow

Thursday. To sleep at a decent hour, up with the alarm, off to breakfast on a clear soon to be sunny morning. Feeling good. Yes we are.

No, I don't know why the regular gas portion of the sign doesn't display, hasn't displayed for the last many days at the gas station across from the morning café. It seems to do that every so often, but not as consistently as it's been doing this last couple of weeks.

Still, seems the price of regular is about $3.54 at the moment. Pretty low for California and the Bay Area. Not that it means anything to someone who fills his tank every six weeks, but I've been following the prices more through habit than anything and it has scratched my curiosity. It does make a difference for most people.

An errand or two to run today, pick up a refill at the pharmacy, buy a package of non-rechargeable batteries for the blood test meter. It doesn't want to run on rechargeable batteries, something it both says in the instructions and through my own testing. A bit of knowledge gained with that, not sure how it may be useful later. The camera and guitar stuff run on rechargeables, don't really care otherwise.

Later. A walk over to the construction site to take pictures, on then to get an ice cream bar at the 7-11 look-alike, back then (by the construction site) home to the apartment to work on the pictures and ease through the rest of the afternoon.

And not, by the way, to add to the journal until tomorrow morning when this is being written. A day of the usual futzing along on the web, working on pictures (another posting to the construction site photos) and then in the early evening with the tablet in bed where we eased into another ocular episode, a not particularly disturbing, but still intense walk through the tablet looking glass into Wonderland, a place I seem to be more and more familiar with as the years go by. Odd end to a day, though. let me tell you.

Didn't eat anything I haven't eaten many times before without an ocular ending, so who knows? We'll try something different in the diet starting tomorrow. Well, maybe day after tomorrow.

The photo up top was taken at the Berkeley Sunday Streets with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
