Today I had a day devoted mostly to quiet. There was a little bit of Internets time in the morning, and there will be a little bit of time devoted to cable now, but mostly I just sat around doing a bit of reading by natural light. I figured the electricity needed a rest. Coincidentally, the bill arrived this afternoon and it was close to forty bucks, which is about ten to fifteen too high for June. That would be from the fan running all night every night for the last few weeks, and the refrigerator running more than usual to throw off its excess heat, and several hours of air conditioning, plus me falling asleep in front of the television more and more often. I might have a few more quiet days with the electronics shut down, just to chip away a bit at next months bill. It was also pretty relaxing.
Now I'm going to heat something on the stove for a belated dinner, and I intend to turn the television off before I fall asleep tonight. To tell the truth, I'm not at all sure I can fall asleep without the television being on anymore, but I'm going to try.
