Reset Twenty-Two, Day One

Despite a nap that lasted from sometime shortly after noon (I can't recall exactly when) until after five o'clock in the evening, I find I can barely keep my eyes open now. It might have been the rather large meal I ate for the first time in quite a while. There was spaghetti and salad and I think I made too much of both, but then I'm out of practice at making large meals so not surprising.

It was very hot Wednesday, and it's still quite warm tonight, plus a shift of the wind brought some of the heaviest smoke we've had in weeks. Some of the smoke might have been from agricultural burns rather than the fires in the mountains, but either way it's all very exhausting. The smoke has me coughing, and has reminded me that I forgot to buy new filters for the HVAC system.

It will be very hot again today, and then will grow merely quite hot for a couple of weeks. For some reason, popcorn balls just popped into my head (no puns intended.) I can't even remember the last time I had one. I had some Cracker Jack a couple of years ago, and that's about as close as I've come to popcorn balls in however long it's been. I wonder if I could make some? There must be a recipe on the Internet. Everything is on the internet.
