There might have been a third while I was way out back and thought I heard a phone ringing but when I got closer to the house didn't hear it anymore. I thought that one might have been a neighbor's phone anyway. At least one of those missed calls must have been about the cancellation.
Anyway, I was looking forward to getting rid of the low grade headache I've had for the last few days, but now that won't happen until I can schedule a new appointment, which is likely to be a week from today. I was also looking forward to enjoying the week of comparatively mild weather, but the low grade headache is going to make it less enjoyable. But then the headache itself would have been more annoying if there had been hot weather along with it, so I guess it's a wash.
So the trip wouldn't be a complete waste I stopped at a store on the way home and bought a couple of items, including a nice head of cauliflower and a package of frozen tamales which will make my diet a bit more interesting this week. I haven't yet decided what to eat tonight. Maybe it will just be a can of soup. I had a late lunch and don't feel very hungry.
But first I want to spend some time in the fresh evening air. It's very cool outside already, and the sun was down well before eight o'clock. Barely three weeks remain until the autumnal equinox. These are apt to be some of the best evenings of the year, and I want to take full advantage of them. The Internets and the television can do without me for a while.
