At Avdi’s, I got up early while it was still not a furnace out, watered the veg garden, and weeded it. More like liberated it from its weedy bondage. Percy got his big salad. Then I went back to being a zombie on drugs. Later, Avdi and I went grocery shopping, and he dropped me off at my apartment, where I promptly fell asleep. I feel a little dazed, not all there. I didn’t even take more photos, just this one of the prickly pear blooming, which I find amazing.
