Waking Up – 07:07:18 PST, 48°F Partly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
I woke up around 7:00, ready to have Dianne replace my Fentanyl patches and put my eye drops in. Dianne went downstairs to call Ron, her brother, in Canada. Before she ended her call, I talked to Ron about Flickr and how best to share our photos with your Friends and Family members. After the call, Dianne prepared breakfast for me to have in bed.
After breakfast, I slowing got up and ready to go downstairs. Being downstairs, I rested because my shoulder pain level had started to increase. It was also time for me taking my morning repertoire of medication.
Using my rest time, I sorted out my camera bag since I have decided that I will use my LUMIX cameras. For now, I will not be using my Sony Alpha SLT A68 and A70 cameras since they are too heavy and I would have to take my large camera bag to hold the appropriate lenses for each occasion.
Going Shopping – 09:45:04 PST, 52°F Partly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
After some rest, Dianne asked me to join her on a short shopping trip. Taking that opportunity I took my smaller LUMIX DC-ZS70 with me for some pictures but also testing the setup.
Just as we got going, Dianne pointed out the many turkeys in front of the old Fire Hall. A great opportunity to take my set of pictures for the day. Dianne stops the car to allow me to shoot through the open front window. I got some really good pictures.
We continue with our shopping trip, stopping at Safeway, Costco and Bed Bath and Beyond.
Getting back home, I spend some time over at Dean’s, looking at his fish tank he had installed in his garden. He did a good job!
Lunch Time – 13:01:30 PST, 59°F Mostly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
By the time I got back home from Dean’s, it was almost lunchtime. Denise prepared a cheese quesadilla for us, which is one of her specialties. Since my shoulder pain level did not go down I continued to take it easy. I uploaded the pictures to Flickr off the last few days and did some other less physical activities to keep the pain for the rest of the afternoon.
End of Day – 14:50:08 PST, 61°F Partly Cloudy, Antioch, CA
Today ended like most days, I spend most of my time resting. Since my pain level is increasing, the best is too limited to my activities until I am back on treatment. I used the time to finally be up-to-date with my blog’s current entries from 19th to today. I do have the content for 12th to 18th entries but have not found the time to transfer them to my website. My goal is to have it done at the end of January.
For dinner, we ordered out using one of our Christmas presents. It was a great ending to a busy day not having to cook/look after dinner. The day ended with us watching
some TV before going to bed to call it a day.
