I planned to gain a bit of weight this week, as I was near the bottom end of the 10-pound bracket set for me by my doctor. I meant to gain 2 pounds but gained 3.2 pounds. My "science" proved inexact. I walked around the lake at Oak Point Park in Plano after Weight Watchers. I liked that the little signs now say that kayaks and canoes are permitted on the lake. Maybe someday I will own a kayak.
I went to church. I was pleased that the associate pastor Jessica Wright gave the sermon in the pastor's absence. She proved a fine speaker. She closed with a talk about learning to be less judgmental. She said that even if one's first thought is autonomously snarky or judge-y, one should strive in one's second thought to see them as humans (her exact words probably invoked God's love more eloquently than this post has done).
After church, I stopped at KFC. Then I went home. During the afternoon, I worked on a music project involving a friend in the UK. I created seven sets of samples using software and various samples I created. The samples all turned out complex and interesting. I am not sure how useful they will be for my collaborator. But I'm sure he'll have fun. I did take a break to throw Beatrice's tennis ball. She fetched it, like her customary good dog self. I used the software Noiser, Sawcutter and Tunafish. I like Noiser, because it has an element of random algorithms about its composition process.
I noticed that we were out of mini-dog-bones and dog treats. This situation was intolerable. So I ran to the Kroger. On the way, I walked in Green Park, a little park near my home. I saw few birds, but got some good pictures of a male House Finch.
Now we are watching Grantchester.
