Monday. Since I'd started drinking the sake yesterday in the mid-afternoon, the effects had essentially worn off and were gone by the time I was ready for bed last night and so have no idea if the sake led to the delay in getting to sleep, but getting to sleep was a tussle.

Still, awake at six-forty without an alarm, to head to breakfast not long after seven. We've been having the plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries along with the usual mixed fruit and coffee since we blamed those two strips of bacon for an almost ocular incident. Good? Who knows, but no almost ocular incidents since.

An amble back home to futz with yesterday's entry. The early morning has been overcast and the sun is only now breaking through as it approaches eleven. A slow morning, but now it's time to finish the web section for yesterday's photographs and get on with it.

On with it?

Sounded right. “It” doesn't really have to mean anything, but how it reads and rolls off the tongue is important in the early morning, the late morning, the afternoon (or in the middle of the night).

It has been a long morning. Maybe best you cool your jets, at least not babble anymore until later this afternoon. Let the head settle.

Later. And so a late morning, afternoon and right into the evening spent putting together two sections of Dias de los Muertos photographs taken yesterday at the museum. No complaints, I seem to rather like it. Anyway, the two sections are now posted to the web sites. Scraped a bit to find enough for two, but no complaints. A good day's shooting. Happy with the results.

Evening. And that's about it for the day. Nothing on television I can find and so to bed to curl up with the now functional tablet (if there's anything of interest I want to watch). If not, maybe that Maigret.

The photo up top was taken yesterday at the Oakland Museum of California with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
