Waking up just before 11 a.m.
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.
Ana drives us out to my mom's house in Portsmouth just to visit for the afternoon. My great uncle Kenny is officially off his meds now and basically under hospice care at the house. Mom and Myra do their best to make him as comfortable as possible. He's lying down in one of those movable beds with a Western playing on the TV. We let him listen to an old recording of himself singing at 2 years old – what a moment. He even starts singing along.
My mom peels open an Orange for me.
On the way home. Ana's mad cause she thinks she's gonna be late for work but she's not.
Back home. Sorting through and organizing sound files.
Getting groceries at Trader Joe's. Still having to explain the hand injury to everyone.
Making dinner: Tofu with Onions, Mushrooms, Sugar Snap Peas, Cauliflower, and Quinoa.
Watching 16 Blocks (2006).
Pulling out the keyboard and attempting to play through DEJA tunes using only the index finger on my left hand – it's hard not being able to play with octaves and 5ths.
Sipping on Ginger Turmeric Tea.
Sleep 3 a.m.
