August 9, 2017… Day 202

Outside of being at the office, staring out at the smoky vistas, I have been all cooped up in my apartment without air conditioning, going crazy. But every time I venture a different approach, I feel like I smoked a pack of cigarettes and my eyes burn. So I go back to sheltering in place.

Also, I’m not a foodie but sometimes nice things come back to back in my FB timeline.
