Much Better!

Song: “I’m On My Way” by the Proclaimers

Mood: 7.5

I slept pretty well last night. I woke up once from a nightmare but that was about it. Other parts of town got a good thunderstorm but I think it missed us by a bit. I’m still waiting for a good storm to see how well the thunder and lightning go. I think I’ll be okay but it would be nice to know.

It was tough getting out of bed this morning because I felt a little creaky and the bed was extra comfortable for some reason. I got up with J and had breakfast, then went back to bed for a bit.

At 10:30, WG showed up and we headed off to two of the thrift stores in the area to look for some records. The first place was a bust – I found three records that I wanted but they were all in really bad shape. The second place had some good stuff.

By “good stuff”, I mean stuff I enjoy, like a couple of James Last albums that I didn’t have. I haven’t listened to them yet but will over the next few days.

It was good to hang out with WG again. I think it’s been around two months since we last got together and it was fun to catch up and shoot the breeze while we were flipping through the record stacks and looking at second-hand toasters.

I got home around noon and went and sat in the basement for a while to clear my mind and do my exercises. It was very pleasant to just sit still and let my brain wander to wherever it wanted.

After J got home we talked for a while about how both of us had better days today than yesterday and then made supper.

I’ve been reading a lot of XKCD comics lately. I like the simplicity of the drawings and the extensive explanations in his “what if” series. It’s a really good read.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr H in the morning and the rest of my day is clear. I think I’m going to stop by the hardware store on the way home and pick up some 7018AC rods. This time I’ll be very careful to make sure they’re AC and not the regular rods. Depending on the weather, I may do some welding. We’ll see.

Stay safe!
