Sundays go slow and then they pick up speed and race to midnight.  Sundays are hard to manage.
My job as an older woman is to wait, wait until they arrive, wait for them to finish getting ready, talking on their cell phones, checking out their  IPhone.  I have not learned it very well yet.

I am reading a Japanese mystery story called six four by Hideo Yokoyama.  It took me awhile to move into it and now I do like it a lot.

Went to a meeting with the Monterey police to learn about the problems with drug use in the homeless population.  They said the addicts didn't want help to quit and then in the questioning it became clear there were no real recovery programs for poor addicts so why were the police offering.

Watched some surfers struggle with the breaking waves on Asilomar Beach this morning. Little points of darkness riding out to the calmer art of the ocean.  And Trump is still president.

Today, I went into the women's restroom at the cross roads.  And there were tow loose black large dogs blocking the way.  I backed out slowly, I am afraid of dogs.  The woman who had the dogs apologized that she was made me feel uncomfortable but she was trying to protect her dogs.

I had dreaded opening my PG&E bill.  It sat on the table looking at me.  the last two bills were extremely high.  I was going to be killed by inflation and cold weather.

When I opened it, no charge for this month, I had been overcharged. I don't understand the explanation but I accept it.
