and what is it?

Up a 6:30 for another mile and a half walk. Beautiful morning. Cool, unlike yesterday.

Took care of some chores around the house, then sent off an early draft of the new commercial project I've been working on.

Got a surprise text my brother's in town. Had lunch with him at Noodles, caught up on the latest, said goodbye, and put in another half hour at the keyboard before taking off to the gym. Weird. Been working out as hard as ever, but seem to be losing energy. Got two days of antibiotics left in the poke, and after that I hope I'm looking at blue sky for a while.

Aphids on the roses. Gonna turn a bag of ladybugs loose on them after the sun goes down.

Tired again tonight. No accounting for it other than decrepitude.
