Rather late in the day for me to be blogging, but my card is done so it feels right to just blah, er, blog about it and then go clean up and start anew tomorrow. I had to stop and keep a doctor's appointment with a new GI doctor and so the sun had gone down behind the clouds by the time I got back to take the photo.

Gave me pause, which helped to pass the time. Speaking of time, you don't have all day, move along.)
