We will most likely hang out at the hotel today and be lazy. Maybe we will play a little pool (there's a pool table near the lobby). It is supposed to get up to 80 degrees today and mostly sunny, so maybe we will spend some time in the swimming pool too. I had a terrible time falling asleep last night and then had very strange dreams when I did sleep, so I may take a nap when the movie I am watching is over in half an hour.

Laying low, putzing around the house. This coming week is crazy because I am (involuntarily) switching my shift. I was working from 3:30pm to 11:45pm (Mid shift). I'm now being forced to 7:30pm to 3:45am (Night "Power" shift). There goes my sleep schedule.

Yup. I'm gonna keep a low profile today.

Maybe the NFL does the same thing MLB does. To keep track of Cubs games I go to www.cubs.com and click on a link that lets me "watch" the game (it shows a diagram of the baseball field and shows who is on base, etc., and it gives details as they come in.). I don't watch football, so I haven't checked it out, but who knows?

Barbara
P.S. I saw that the Chargers are playing right now, so I checked it out and football does the same thing as baseball. Go to your team (for Chargers I just typed in www.sandiegochargers.com) and then where it shows news updates, click until you see "Gameday." Click on Gameday and it will show you the game in progress. Not the actual game, of course, but what is happening.

Weatherwise, today has been nothing short of perfect. Clear, sunny, slight breeze. Humidity nice and low and the temp has hovered at about 70F all day.

Otherwise, it's been a pretty laid back day. Needed a break from all the stuff I did earlier in the week and yesterday. Breakfast and morning chores have been just about it.

However, I had a bit of inspiration and did a bit of ghostwriting (appropriate term in more ways than one). Wrote a BUCK column and am very, very pleased with how it turned out. It definitely was in his style and I'm pretty sure he was guiding me as I wrote it. Whenever I seemed to stumble with an word or phrase, I got a "nudge" and the right "Buck" word or phrase came to me.

For a change, I've given some thought (before 8 p.m.) as to what to prepare for my dinner. Will probably have enough for 2 nights, which will allow me to be lazy tomorrow.

Getting ready to feed my outside kitties their supper, then will sit on the porch until it gets dark.
