Spirit is Nervous

She followed me around after dark yesterday, and insisted on sitting where my book would be when I was reading in bed. I got her to move just a bit, but then the screw fell out of the reading glasses again. These have a different place for the screws than most, and clearly can't handle the stress of being used while I lay on my right side in bed (it's the right screw that keeps falling out). I spent an hour trying to get it all the way back in (dropping it three times and trying to differentiate it from the same size bugles spilled on the workroom floor) and finally gave up and went back to bed. I'll take it up to Kaiser Fair Oaks Vision Services tomorrow and get it put back in, and then use those just for reading at the recliner. I'll look for a new frame for reading-in-bed glasses and buy those.

I slept through a thunderstorm this morning -- apparently at 9am it was 91F, at 10am it was 83F, and by 1pm, back to 91F. Today's forecast says thunderstorms for the rest of the week.

Spirit and Shiva have been okay today; I hope tonight is better.
