After her illness, she has a very limited diet, but the deli counter at New Earth Market in Yuba City (a Whole Foods-like store) has a number of things she can eat, while they also had stuff I like, so we had lunch there and talked over matters of family business (like my late grandfather's house in Challenge) that were the technical reason for my visit.
Mom said that my sister would like to see me even though she's spending most of her time sleeping, so after lunch, Mom went off to do errands and I went over to see Kelli. She got up and we talked for maybe half an hour, but she's pretty frail and it didn't take long before she had to go lie back down again. She did say she was glad I visited, however.
The drive back to San Jose was uneventful, but hot. The van's air conditioning was able to keep up, but just barely and with running on max at full tilt, both fore and aft. I was glad I had no significant hills to climb since I would have had to turn off the AC to keep from overheating. Even in the flatland conditions, running continuous full power AC for that long runs the temperature up to where it's flirting with the yellow zone. I was glad to get back to my little apartment and crank the air conditioning up to high.
