First Thoughts…

… in bed by 9:30 PM last night… up by 3:30 AM… i am in a six hour per night sleep pattern stretch… this happens sometimes… my rhythms… then a night or two with seven our eight hours…

… no alcohol last night… no dinner either… we ate so much at Cafe Mutton due to the extra’s we were given… i hope the fish i had planned will last to tonight…

… Fiona has spay surgery tomorrow… i am a bit anxious about it… totally routine and better for her health in the long run, but she is the sweetest dog ever so it is hard to imagine putting her through any kind of misery, however temporary and however good for her…

… i have chicken coop cleaning duties today… i will do the small coup… the large one already done by L yesterday…

HCR meter pointing downward… it begins with a speech given by Flynn-the-disgraced in which he argues for one church under god… it moves on to the goings on in Europe… Democracy is under attack around the world… right wing conservatives in congress are hampering the Biden/Harris administrations to ability to counter by holding up diplomatic appointments… this weakens the administration’s ability to conduct effective diplomacy in places where it is badly needed… together with an article in The Bulwark about anti-democratic goings on in Georgia paint an increasingly bleak picture of world stability going forward…

… i make a note to myself to start reading The Economist magazine more regularly… i will get a better picture of world events…

… we did have a nice day yesterday, but then we got home and H got into a foul mood for a while… frustration over a missing cookbook which will reappear i am sure… really frustration with their poor eyesight which is likely getting worse with age… their eyes have been compromised since their premature birth…

… Chas has woken up and wants attention…

… dogs let out, treats distributed…

… opened up The Economist app and read some of the articles… echoing the world situation summed up by HCR and Bulwark…
