Back to the new normal

It’s Monday.

It’s noticeably darker in the morning now. Not dark yet, but not bright when I wake.

A relatively sane workday, thanks to some insane days last week. There are still big things in the wings, but I allowed today to be catching up with some of the smaller bits.

And then ended the work day an hour early to go see to a civic bit, and give blood. I did a good job of hydration and it went well. But I was preparing some zucchini after we got home and had a real sinking spell. I sat down to finish the prep, and probably more importantly, had a protein bar.

So after dinner, it may be an early evening. The lunchtime walk, will have to do for today. The walk was interesting due to the amount of activity, mostly vehicular, encountered. One of our narrow neighborhood streets had an aerial utility crew working near one end of the street, with a bucket truck blocking the road. We saw at least 2 cars enter from the long end, with no hope of reaching the far end. And the endless parade of UPS and Amazon vans. A drivers ed car working on the back around a corner move. And it’s garbage and yard waste day, so those trucks were trundling around. All I can say is I am glad we were walking.

    Fall is definitely in the air and in the light. Glad you had a protein bar around. I should give blood, but I get faint when I do, so it’s a little scary.

      I’ve been lucky to do pretty well over the years. A few experiences that weren’t perfect, but in the end I can, so I do. Carl hates needles, but something got to him once and he was compelled to try. He did fine, and was more consistent than me, until the heart issue. Now he can’t, but I try harder, partly because he needed a unit when he was in the hospital. Giving back.
