A tapping sound came from the hood of the range and the vent over the gas fireplace I never use, so I looked outside and sure enough it is sprinkling. I noticed that it was getting a bit overcast late this afternoon, but I didn't expect rain so this is a pleasant surprise. In about half an hour I'll have to go out to the laundry room to fetch the white pieces out of the dryer, but I doubt I'll get soaked even if the sprinkles continue that long.

The laundry is still in the dryer this late because I forgot to do it this afternoon. I didn't go anywhere today, so there was really no excuse for not getting it done, other than that I am senile and just plain forgot. I didn't remember it had to be done until I went to take a shower and discovered that I had no clean towels. So I started the first load ate nine o'clock, and it's going to be after midnight before I get my shower, since I didn't do the towels first. More forgetfulness. My memory is very, very short these days.

Tomorrow is still supposed to be Safeway day, and after that I intend to visit the carnival, and maybe get something for dinner there, since a lot of local food trucks that don't usually make it to this part of town are expected to be there. It will be a good chance to sample some of Chico's roach coaches. And who knows, maybe I'll run away and join the carnival. There's really nothing to keep me here but a flabbergasting amount of inertia and decrepitude. I don't think they have freak shows anymore, or I'd be a shoo-in as the beer-bellied Skeleton Man.

Dinner was a serving of the leftover lasagna, plus garlic toast, asparagus, and an avocado. The avocados I bought last week are so good I wish I'd bought more. There's only one left, and they aren't on sale this week. The last one was the farthest from ripe when I bought it, and I'm hoping it will last until Friday, so I can have it with the rest of the lasagna. Sadly, it's another week of mediocre sales at the supermarkets. That's not too unusual this time of year. They save their best deals for the big holidays, starting with Thanksgiving. It's a good thing I've got plenty of stuff squirreled away in the larder. But I'll probably have to pay full price for orange juice this week, unless Grocery Outlet gets some in.

Stuff should be ready to come out of the dryer now (I've been writing very slowly,) and it sounds like it has stopped raining. It was nice while it lasted.
