Once I got home and put most of the groceries away, I felt tired, and then I started feeling cold even though at that time it was still 70 degrees in the apartment. I crawled under a couple of throws on the bed and soon fell asleep. To my surprise I slept until almost one o'clock in the morning. That's why I'm not sure I'll be able to finish the shopping today. I can't go if I haven't had more sleep by then, and if that sleep comes too late today it will just be too late to go. I miss having a sleeping routine, but so far it has proven impossible to get one back.
Since Safeway was the store I didn't get to, I still don't have a pie. Had I gotten one Friday I'd have eaten pie for dinner, since I didn't feel like cooking either before or after my long evening nap. Instead, after I'd been awake for an hour or so I ate some popcorn. The store I'd intended to buy donuts from didn't have either flavor I like, so I settled for the seasonal pumpkin spice flavor, and I ate one of those for desert. It was tolerable, but I still hope to get a couple of packages of my preferred flavors at Safeway.
The sudden onset of the cold is annoying, and I intend to get back under the covers soon, even if I don't get back to sleep for a while. I've got stuff to read, and I'd rather do that in bed than out here in the living room , which feels chilly even with the furnace on. It feels a bit warmer if I step outside for a few minutes and come back in, but that doesn't last. When I was out a few minutes ago I did hear the mockingbird, who is sometimes an early riser.
There was no rain Friday, which doesn't surprise me, though I still feel a bit disappointed. It would have been nice to have even a few sprinkles. Maybe late next week we'll get some. Still no telling when Schrodinger's Election will be over though. I'm glad I got some beer and a bottle of rum when I went shopping. I'll be needing it.
