Saturday 24/Oct/2020... listed and logged

Saturday morning:

It was a late start this morning because of massive insomnia last night. The first 3-hour sleep segment was followed by a 4-hour insomnia break. A 2nd 3-hour sleep segment ended my night. I can function with six hours of sleep, but some nap time will probably be on my agenda later today.

The morning's health metrics and financials were all good.

Saturday evening:

As late evening wanders into night I'm happy to note that this has been a good day in the Roscoe-verse. As planned there has been quality college football playing on the radio here all day long, sometimes back in my room and sometimes out in the front room (where I actually dozed for a bit in the recliner during the Notre Dame game, grabbing that nap time I expected.)  While the games were playing I was still able to work on all my pending chess games and keep up with my prayers.

Considering the local mask and social distancing mandates in effect, this has been about as good a day as I can hope for.  With 3 minutes yet to go in the 2nd Quarter of this football game, I have plenty of football left to follow before putting myself to bed. Think I'll get to it.
