There was a little sun when I woke, but now it's overcast and only 64˚F. Yesterday, we reached the low eighties, and near dusk there were thunderstorms.

Yesterday, I managed a measly 527 words on Chapter 4 of The Tindalos Asset, but at least it wasn't rewriting. And then I packed dinosaurs. I have an enormous collection of plastic dinosaurs, and packing them is no small task.

Last night, I missed two of my meds and was awake until 4 a.m. before I realized what had happened. So, at best I slept about four hours.

  • Less Awful

    Some clouds this afternoon, but mostly sunny, and we went all the way to 84˚F, but missed the predicted 87˚F. I slept, at most, three hours last…
