Boy, did I sleep last night. Not an unusually long time, but unusually soundly. I was unconscious right up until I woke at 5:45 a.m. and I feel like I could sleep more.
Yesterday was full of all the tasks associated with post-vacation settling back into routine. I went to the cleaners. I went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and other stuff to replenish our depleted refrigerator. I unpacked everything -- the Pietà is on the bathroom windowsill, as planned. It feels so great to be home.
Last night Dave and I watched some TV, but poor exhausted Dave could barely keep his eyes open and he crashed about 7:45 p.m. I stayed awake until our normal bedtime -- 10 p.m. -- in an effort to get back on schedule. I watched a terrific film called "What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day?" about East London before it was transformed by the new Olympic park. I love the cinematography -- long shots of old, deteriorated buildings and storefronts, just like the ones I often photograph. I'm going to watch it again before I return the DVD to Sally.
Today I'll get out and do some photography, hopefully, as well as run a few more errands.
