Sometimes, Boring is Good

It has been a pretty quiet day, which in my opinion is just wonderful. I've had a whole lot of excitement these past several months, and I could do with a few boring weekends where nothing happens. Indeed, if I hadn't needed to drive down to Sunnyvale and collect the mail from my PO Box (and take the hold off, as I'd held mail while I was traveling), I might not have gone outside at all today and spent much of the day sleeping.

Or maybe not. the upstairs neighbor here had workmen in today doing the second stage of renovations they started a month or so ago, and so for most of the day we had the sounds of loud grinding from upstairs, plus a continuous cloud of concrete dust from them grinding down her floors. It makes me glad I hadn't yet gotten around to cleaning up the patio from their first visit. (Not that I would have had time.)

But I did get out for a walk. I didn't really want to do so, but I ate such a large lunch that my sense of guilt (not to mention diabetic self-preservation) kicked me into gear, and so it was off for a walk around Quarry Lakes Park, which takes a little under an hour. I was rewarded with a blood sugar reading of 103, which is just fine for one hour after a large carbohydrate-filled meal.
