Did Things

Up at 6. Waited for the 6:30 alarm (set an hour early to practice for tomorrow). Turned one bedroom light on with the app on the tablet so I could read the tablet. All the lights came on at 7:30 and off at 9:15 as programmed.

10-ish, returned the switch to Lowe's. Basically two issues, primarily the ground wire terminal screw doesn't turn. Secondarily, I don't like the no-wrap design.

Home Depot looking for a better switch but all they had were incompatible ones and the same one.

Home, grabbed the camera and drove to Ardenwood Historic Farm. Trudged to where the butterflies were last year, but nada. Trudged back to the greenhouse in time to join the mob with the park docents. Got photos of monarch caterpillars on milkweed plants, and one monarch as well.

They led us to a completely different section of the eucalyptus grove where there were two (2) trees with significant populations of butterflies.

I took pictures, they are here.

Wandered back the long way, and was treated to displays by a peacock and two peahens.

The hens were not impressed.

Had a long chat in the grove and later in the greenhouse with a very cute blonde tour leader. She said there is a tag I should put on my pics to show the park is free to use them. I'll have to look that up.

Back across the bay, 2 hours early at *$s, lucked out on getting my favorite table. Texted Janice that I was there if she wanted to come early, and she did, 20 minutes later. Had a nice chat, hit 7-11 for cheesy poofs, and then home.

Processed and uploaded the photos. Thinking about a late dinner, but early bedtime. May start a load of laundry.

Plans for tomorrow:
Up at 6:30
On the road by 7:30
Google orientation at 8 (7:45 check-in)
Meet my manager and get taken to my work site
Get set up to work.
