October 3rd, 2018

Monday and Tuesday (and Saturday and Sunday for that matter) saw substantial crowds at the pool. Today it was just me for most of my swim. So weird how the population changes so drastically. I'm often asked which day is the best/worst in terms of getting a lane. My answer always has to be the lamest - no way of telling.

Clearly my degenerative lung disease is degenerating. First thing in the morning, particularly, my ability to breathe easily is worse now than it was a few months ago. It could be (and likely will be) way worse but still kind of sobering to face. For now I can use the inhalers I have on hand to get me through the day which is great. As long as I don't have to go back on that horrible steroid inhaler, I'll be happy.

I have lots of sewing on my todo list all of a sudden. I have some simple mending that's just waiting for the serger to get dark colored thread in it. I have a pair of pants to assemble (also needing dark serger thread). And then there is that new top pattern I found yesterday and I need a light weight sweater. I have everything I need to finish all of this. I just need to get to it. Today seems good.

I do need to go to Costco but it does not need to be today. I could also use a Grocery Outlet run. But again, not necessarily today. I'm trying to clean out the freezer and the best way to do that is stay out of food stores.

That said, I'm giving serious thought to going to 13 Coins for dinner tonight. It's beef stroganoff night and it's been a while since I've had any so... maybe.

It's deliciously chilly in here today.

TV Fall 2018

19. Macgyver CBS - Season 3, Episode 1 - I think this is not going to work without seeing the beginning. I can pay for that on Amazon and I might. When I run out of stuff to watch.

20. NCIS Los Angeles - CBS - Season 10, Episode 1 - I keep thinking I don't need to watch this any more and I still watch this. No idea why.

21. Modern Family - ABC - Season 10, Episode 1 - And, nearly the same with this. But, it's still on the Record All New Episodes list. Go figure.

Like an old friend

13 Coins (a favorite restaurant which happens to be two blocks away) only serves beef stroganoff on Wednesdays. I have missed a fair amount of Wednesdays recently. Between weather too hot to leave the air conditioned condo and baseball games to go to or watch, I haven't even been in 13 Coins in a month.

But, tonight I went in for an early dinner of strog and OMG. It is so good. Just so good. They serve too much for one dinner and usually exactly enough for two but tonight I caught myself eating tomorrow's dinner! I stopped in time but it was close.

I got good sewing done today - a sweater finished and a top started. My after lunch walk turned out to be up to the fabric shop to get thread. I like a walk much better when it has a purpose.

Now I'm settled in with my knitting. Zoey is on her couch. Time for some TV.
