What a difference a day makes. Yesterday it was 93 and hot. Today it is overcast and 70. We even had a sprinkling of rain. How cool is that and we really need it.
I had a good walk this morning and almost no one was there except the one runner who happened to be walking. At first, I didn’t recognize her not running, and then on my second round I said” oh you’re not running, I didn’t recognize you”. She laughed. So all in all a nice walk.
I had a bit of a setback yesterday from doing the weights on Thursday. I guess the lactic acid build-up or exercise flu hit me pretty hard. I felt pretty lousy all day and figured out it must have been the weights even though I hardly did more than 20 minutes. So when I go next, I’ll need to hydrate and do less. I’m very careful with anything I do physically but I guess it was more than my body could handle. The last time I did weights at the gym was February of 2020 right at the beginning of all the lockdowns. So perhaps even the small reps were too much. I guess there will be an adjustment period.
Today I’ll do the bathroom zone and quick house tidy. Mostly just putting things back where they belong. Since I didn’t feel like eating much yesterday my daughter put together some ravioli and salad. I’m not sure what I’ll do tonight as I still don’t feel like food much. Maybe breakfast for dinner.
I started reading ‘Maus’ by Art Spiegelman and geez, wow, If you haven’t read go buy it, get it from the library. It is brilliant. Tragic, but brilliant. I’m not sure what the ‘banned book’ thing is about as the story is about his father in Nazi Germany and how he survived in Poland and then eventually was betrayed and was sent to Auschwitz. Maybe the White Supremacists don’t want the truth out there. ( I just looked up the banned book deal. Apparently, it Tennessee that banned because of language(damn) and nudity( I guess the naked men when they were stripped in the concentration camps). WTF, those horrors and so much more beyond our comprehension happened. The world CANNOT forget what Hitler did and was doing to eradicate and entire race of people.
I went to the farm stand Friday and picked up some early zucchini, radishes, lettuce, spinach, and some delicious peaches.
All good news with my labs. No increase and staying almost where they were right above high normal. So I made it to my goal which was to stay out of treatment for a year. Everything else will be icing on the cake. BTW, June 15 is my anniversary of my diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. 17 years later here I am. Hopefully for a while longer.
This coming week should have much cooler temperatures except Wednesday which looks like a 90 degree day.

Brava about the years!!!
I miss living in a place with variable weather
Whenever someone wants to ban books, I remind them the ones throughout history who have wanted to ban books have always been the bad guys.
It is a milestone. Life goes on.
Thank you for pointing out Maus, will try and see if I can find it in aus yes the era of him who must not be named was horrific not just jewish people but the entire human race ..
If not the library, Amazon has it for About $30. All three volumes.
Wow, that is a wild swing of weather! We are in the midst of June gloom here at the coast but the temps are moving up. I read a lot about the concentration camps when doing a civics paper in middle school and can imagine that this is an essential book for reaching today’s young people to make them aware of the atrocities.
yes, today is mid 70’s so beautiful weather. You should get Maus out of the library. It took about a month on the hold list.
