Nails, shakes,some football, zoom

But first, I forgot to mention yesterday three fish died overnight. I suspect the temperature got too low when the clogged filter failed to distribute the heat. Two angelfish which had grown a lot since I got them, and either a female betta or a female swordtail. Probably the latter.
When the wake-up routine came on at 8, Spook jumped on the bed and started to groom herself near the head of the bed, but I had to get dressed and take out the garbage & wheel the bins to the curb, then back and undressed and slept till 11.

Called for a nails appointment, got one for 3:30. Rain was predicted for about that time, but didn't happen till about 7. 

The wind was so fierce that my Peace Corps flag was blown off the wall, holder and all. Took in both flags, not planning on flying them from the front of the house again. Maybe I can rig something on the porch.

Humana did it again, canceled my insulin prescription. I phoned, but the call was dropped by the rep I'd been on hold 15 minutes for when there was no one on the prescription line to transfer me to.  Maybe I'll try again tomorrow after 5 pm as their recording suggests.

3:30 got my nails done. Blue this time. Used the app to order some shakes from the local Sonic. Had the banana one, it was very good.

Watched some 90 Day, PTI and MNF until halftime.

Dinner was brother in law's leftover salmon with sauteed mushrooms. It was industrial salmon, pressed into a brick, way too dry, but edible in small doses.

BASFA Zoom meeting, they are getting closer to meeting in person. Bay Area theater scene is also back. Vegas is coming back too, I have a ticket for a show next week, they finally have returned to selling single seats without distancing. Masks still required.

Chocolate shake and the rest of the Seahawks game tonight - Lumen Stadium - much easier to say than Century Link.

Jade has been standing in front of the gate. I opened it, and she poked her head out, but ran back into the room. Progress, though.

Tomorrow:
Trop - maybe buy a trio of angelfish. Depends on what's in stock.
Maybe leave the gate open and see what happens, since I'll be home most of the day
Below Deck - the original - is recording now, as is 90 Day Single Life
