Low Energy

The second sleep Wednesday morning having been rather poor, I had less energy than I'd hoped and was thus less ambitious. I had intended to walk over to the health food store in its odd cubby on the wrong side of the road, but didn't. Instead I just made the usual trip to the Goodwill store, where I did find an appealing book that wasn't there yesterday. It's another large format picture book, called American Then and Now. It has historic photos matched with contemporary (early 1990s, when the book was published) views of the same places or, if they are not views of places, the same subject. Hours of viewing pleasure, I'm sure.

One thing I did manage to get done was get through PG&E's complex and yet clunky message system to report my missing February bill. They will resend it, though I'm not sure it will arrive in time that I'll be able to avoid a late fee for it next month. And I also got the plants in the back yard watered. The hot weather had left the soil rather dry, and I'm sure they were glad for the drink. The main bush on the fence is already blooming, with about a dozen white flowers open and a few hundred buds that will soon blossom. I don't know of that particular plant is among those making me sneeze, but I am still sneezing a lot, and getting a runny nose.

I've also picked up a few more mosquito bites, all on my hands this time. I haven't seen my lizard yet this year, and I'm getting a bit worried. It ought to be out sunning itself on the concrete wall every afternoon by now. I hope it didn't get munched by some larger creature.

Since I didn't allow myself a nap tonight I'm feeling sleepy now, and I hope I can sleep better than last night. One problem might be the indigestion my dinner gave me. That might keep me awake. And I've just realized I have no antacids in the house at all. I do have some almond meal, which some health food fanatics claim is a superior method of treating acid indigestion, so maybe I'll try that (I usually use it to add a bit of protein and some extra flavor to cooked cereals.) If it doesn't work. I'll be reduced to chewing Tic Tac peppermint gum.
