What A Cute Puppy…

Song: “Yer So Bad” by Tom Petty

Mood: 7

Nightmares: 0

Ghosts: Lots

I slept pretty well last night, only waking up worrying about things twice that I can remember, and neither time got me out of bed. I think I can say pretty confidently now that the quetiapine reduction is not causing any problems.

This morning I went through my regular routine, sent out some texts, and started another print to finish up the turnbuckle I started yesterday. I like starting the prints earlier in the day because I’d rather not let the printer finish at 2AM and sit there for the next six hours idling if I can help it. I’m not worried about the power, it’s more the wear on the fans, stuff like that.

I went for my walk this morning and there were little bits of fluff drifting in the breeze from the trees. It’s interesting how they can just hang there for a moment and then wander away, like they had a mind of their own. While I was out I passed a woman carrying a very cute little beagle-like puppy. Its eyes were closed but its tail was wagging against her arm. I said hello, she said hi back and then kind of shrugged and said, “She’s tired.” I don’t normally say things like this, but it was adorable.

I got back home and sat out on the deck steps for a while, enjoying the sight of the dandelion carnage in the yard. Not quite as long as yesterday because it was getting pretty warm, but the neighbour’s dog wasn’t yapping at me so that was nice.

I did some writing today and spent a lot more time tinkering with electronics. FA let me borrow a box of 37 different modules and I’ve been playing with some of them. I also spent some time working on getting a little LCD display working. I can’t believe how pleasant it is to work with this stuff. A few weeks ago I was still forcing myself to sit down and futz with various things, but I find now that I’m looking forward to working with them and seeing how it all works. I think that’s a good thing.

The tree company didn’t show up again today. Tonight will be the last night that I leave the gate unlocked. While I’ve proven the last couple of nights that I can still relax enough to get to sleep, leaving it unlocked makes me uncomfortable. Plus, it’s a gate. With a lock. Seems silly to not actually use it.

J and I watched another episode of Blue Planet II this evening. Sperm whales are hands-down my favourite thing that lives in the ocean, and the footage they captured of them for this episode was really impressive. They even had a camera mounted on one of the whales as she dove with her calf. Amazing stuff.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with Dr H. I expect I’ll get the results of my nerve and lung tests. We will see what happens.

Stay safe.
