Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Friday, July 10, 2015. The temperature is 63.7°F and the humidity is 83% at 4:55 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 1.6 mph. It mostly cloudy when I when I stuck my head out. Still no stars, no moon. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 76° (“cooler than yesterday”) today.

It looked like it wanted to rain most of yesterday, but the weather predictions were for no rain. When I got out of the shower, Mr. Siduri told me it was raining and Gremlin was huddled up against the back door, meowing with his fur wet. He picked him up and put him in the enclosure. It didn’t rain for long, but the ground was wet. Hard to say whether there was “measurable” rain or not.

I’ve been slacking off in my writing the past couple of days. There are no great consequences, but it annoys me. I’d hoped to have maybe two more reviews up on Examiner. I have none. I’ll concentrate on Examiner today. But I’m also doing some beta reading for a guy at goodreads. I want to do that. Truth is, there are things I can do when Mr. Siduri is around and things I can only do when I’m alone. Writing is one that I do best when I’m alone.

And I can’t wait to be done with Being Young. It’s a silly book.

But I’ve also got to get more active. I hate going to the gym. I know some people like it—and gods bless you all—but I hate it. The best thing for me is to go first thing in the morning when they open and get it over with. But that’s also prime writing time. I like to walk, but Mr. Siduri wants to come with me and always walks faster than I do, making it a chore.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things. Off to write another day—

Writing schedule (again):

1. Spend an hour with Siegfried.

2. Review Inanna Queen of Heaven and Earth either today or tomorrow.

3. Review a section of poetry from World Poetry .

4. Continue reading Being Young .

Been raining for the past week so seeing the sun today is a welcome relief! I'm one of those gym rats but I'm no social being in the gym - it is just me and my workout - nothing more!

Excellent. When I lived in New York and Wisconsin, I used to go for long walk, esp. with the dogs. It's been harder to do that in California. So damn much traffic.
