At lunch I went to Breckinridge Park. The little concrete ditch-thing had birds bathing in it--Dark-Eyed Junco, Eastern Bluebirds and first-of-season-for-me American Goldfinches.

Eastern Bluebird

Today's breakfast--one package of Quaker Lower Sugar instant oatmeal and one package of Oatfit instant oatmeal.

Today's lunch--a turkey sandwich on wheat from Subway, along with baked chips. I was surprised when the price had climbed from the usual 6 dollars and 50 cents to a bit over 8 dollars.

Tonight's dinner: turkey chili and a corn muffin.

Tonight's television: Flash, This is Us, and Chicago Fire
