Saturday - Back in Lancaster. The house looks
good, the cats seem OK.
It's been kind of brutal down in Ventura. It's been very hot - in the 90's,
and very humid. And it's turned, through no one's fault, into a full time
I've been on the job site, and on my feet, all day and every day. And I'm
thankful that I spent the summer prepping for the Grand Canyon hike, because
it has physically been demanding. And of course mentally demanding, because
this is a bit different from other inspection work, and theres a lot of it -
about fifty separate job sites so far, and it's really kept me hopping.
I think I'm keeping up, but it's a rare night that I DON'T wake up worrying
It was Roger's birthday earlier in the week, so we took him out to lunch at
Juliani's. This is the same restaurant as a few years ago, but they've moved
from a strip mall down near Palmdale to the outlet mall in Lancaster. It's
very nice inside, actually, and the food was excellent and the portions
large. I paid, since I'm gainfully employed for the first time in a while...
Friday - OTR.
Wednesday 14 October
Wednesday - OTR.
Tuesday - OTR.
Monday - OTR.
Sunday - Slept in a bit: after leaving the
swamp cooler on all night it was nice and cool.
Then it was off to the grocery stores to stock up for Lancaster and Ventura.
I needed to a bit of work on the inspection job, but am still pretty tired.
But not as bad as last week.
Another unfortunate side effect of being on my feet all day is that things
have happened to my feet. There is a sharp shooting pain in the left foot,
when walking barefoot. Which I tend to do around the house. It isn't really
noticeable in boots, but I haven't tried a seven mile hike in a couple of
weeks. I'm a bit afraid of what I find out.
I need to find out, because the Grand Canyon Hike II with Dave is coming up
at the beginning of November.
I'll have to head down to Ventura tonight.
