journal, hungry, sleep

Went to bed the usual time but could not fall asleep. I might have been hungry. It was like yesterday but not quite when I got up at 10 a.m. to eat. After that, I slept until 4:45 p.m. and had coffee. But yesterday turned out to be a good day. It was 32 light, easy steps to the bathroom with the rollator and someone guarding from the rear. I forgot to count steps after that. The temperature was nice yesterday.

I got up to eat at 9 a.m. today when I smelled breakfast cooking. I have been looking at the clock periodically. 5:34 a.m., 7:48 a.m. I have not slept at all. I ate and then read for a while, until maybe 11 a.m. That was when my eyes felt dry. I lied down and fell asleep but a loud, "Whatever!" from outside the window woke me up with a jerk. My body felt heavy. Someone was on their cellphone talking, no, more like yelling enthusiastically. I lied awake for a while until I lost patience and asked them to please talk somewhere else, that I was trying to sleep. They did.

That did not stick though. I was just starting to doze off when they came back and started talking loudly on their phone again. This time, right outside my window. I asked them to keep it down. They apologized and left. It sounded like they genuinely forgot why.

I was up again by 4:30 p.m. and had coffee. I do not know how long I actually slept today. Less than 4 hours, probably. My eyes feel dry and my head is cloudy. I remember it is Sunday. I can take it easy.

cold side dish

dada's meal fish, cold side and chicken

The eggplant/tomato salad was chilled and so good for today's weather. On the right is pininyahang manok from a nearby carinderia.

Muggy days are here again.

I think my phone captured a nice picture this time.

chromed

Waah! Had to install the big G's Chrome browser for quality checks and it ate up a chunk of what little system space I had left. I am seriously thinking about adjusting the sizes of my partitions.

Hmmm... most of the mobile visitors are on iOS. Should I get one? It will be for... quality checks.

days in pictures 1


lays snack
Late-night snack.

corned beef, orange slices
Corned beef and orange slices for breakfast.

egg, giniling
Left-over lettuce wrap filling with fried egg makes a nom-nom meal. That is ground chicken meat.

floor space
Garbage truck came so it was bye-bye to the bag of trash that occupied this space, at last. You can see my transport wheelchair and rollator over there. Hmmm... my mobility aids need dusting. This reminds me, important things like these must match the person using them. A couple of years ago, I bought a rollator to use abroad, online. Like my trusty one, it was three-wheeled and lightweight but by a different maker called Drive Medical. It looked nice but I could not squeeze the brakes properly -- it was useless to me. We tried adjusting the thing but nothing worked. Such a waste but lesson learned. If I will ever need another rollator, I will stick with Invacare. I will tell the "why we chose a transport wheelchair" story on another post.

fish
Holy Week so there was fish.

pork liver
We eat dinner together at the table but sometimes I eat at my work desk. I really like how they cook pork liver.

This is the first in my "days in pictures" series. I decided to drop "dada's" because the title will be too long. The pictures came straight from the camera (Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90), no flash and not edited. They turned out darker than on the camera display.

photo series

I will make a series. I will call it "Dada's Days in Pictures #" or whatever clever title I'll come up with then.

It will be a series of pictures that I will take with my point-and-shoot camera (not phone) for a consecutive number of days or until the battery is drained.

I expect it will be dull because I am not able to get up and move (sucks but have to deal {childhood-onset myositis}).

There will be food, mostly of my meals which I can comfortably take pictures of sitting down.

Let's see what happens.
