Sometimes, you simply feel down.

For much of today I was more or less a lump. Not getting much done. That was until the afternoon, when I did the semi-monthly cleaning: today, the kitchen. After that (and a quick but satisfying shower), I got out: reading at the neighborhood coffee shop, then walking to the produce stand near SE 82nd and Foster for carrots, a cucumber, and potatoes. I felt better once I was productive.

Except that yesterday I was reasonably productive, but still felt kind of low. I went driving, visiting a comic shop I like then having a good dinner at a new-to-me place that had been recommended to me by people I trust (Yay, I can still trust them! *grins*), then visited the Belmont Goats during their Wednesday open hours. With shorter days now, there was evening light, which made for striking views. This was all stuff I like doing, but I still wasn't feeling all that "up."

I'm not sure what factor or factors led to feeling like that. So I'll simply note it. And work to have tomorrow go better and be better.
Juniper is the one chicken who lives with the Belmont Goats. Last night Juniper was frisky. I would up taking plenty of pictures of her, and fewer of the goats than normal. I liked seeing Juniper be that perky, and the goats were nicely chill. Including Cooper, who is recovering from surgery and was allowed out in the field. (At night he stays in a pin, marked "Re-Cooper-ation Pen.") Instead of a cone, which he hated wearing while at Oregon State University where he went for the procedure, a veterinary student improvised a box for Cooper to wear around his neck instead. He's been fine with it. And with the OSU colors.
