Monday 18- I did my stretches, ran a mile, and lifted weights.

I had a problem with my inside lights last night not being bright enough to read and figured it was oxidization at the battery connection. I checked today and it was pretty bad. So I cleaned it all up, and put water in all the batteries. Well one of the cells in the two batteries that run the inside lights was dead! That makes two dead cells I had to deal with this week; the other was on Kelly’s car. The battery needs to be replaced, but I am going to get the 12volt battery back I lent Ginger (she isn’t using it anymore) and hook it into the system tomorrow; hopefully it’s not dead too.
I went up on the roof and tarred places in the new patio roof where the water was coming in during the last rain.
I went on my evening walk taking pictures of ant holes when I came across a Tarantula minding his own business on his way to somewhere. I decided to distract him for a moment and had him pose for a few pics. I even let him crawl partway up my hand, cool! It started to sprinkle so I made my way back home but it never did rain. Maybe tomorrow it will.
I talked to Kelly tonight on the computer with Skype and she recited Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” from memory all the way to the end! About all I could manage to recite was nevermore :) I should really get more into poetry, especially Poe.
I did my stretches and went for a night run, practiced my guitar, wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
