The morning started out bright with the dawn sky (alba cielo) on full display. The 3/4 moon (Luna) was in the mid sky an the analogous colors radiated out form the sun’s path: red (rojo), orange (naranja), yellow (amarillo). light blue, blue (azul) and dark blue (azul marino), There were no clouds (nubles) in the sky (cielo) and there was a slight breeze (briza). The rabbits (conejos) were grazing on the fields, Labrona (rabina) was grazing by the basketball court. As the sun rise (salida del sol), the big bright golden sphere rise over the Sierras brightened the sky and warmed the air. The rabbits left the soccer field but continue to graze on the baseball field. Completed my 5 miles walk ( caminar cinco milla) and jogged one mile (correr uno milla) at 7:40 AM (a las siete curenta), in the 1 hour 10 minutes and 18 seconds (uno hora diez minutoes diesciocho segundos). Average (premido) walking times were: 11 minutes 43 seconds per mile (once minutoes curenta y tres segundos por milla) or 1 minutes and 58 seconds per lap ( uno minutoe cincuenta y ocho segundos per Vuelta). It was a fast (rapido) pace and i sweat (sudar) during the walk. Had a nutty bar, an apple (manzana), banana (platano) and celery (apio) for snacks (bacidillo). Attended Spanish Lessons at 8:30 AM. Lunch was served at 9:30 AM. Luncheon menu: Tacos, corn (grano), rice (arroz), an apple (manzana) and water (aqua). Talked to Doris at 9:40 AM: Doris is well and they are on their way in Quang’s SUV, because the check engine light came on in the Mazda. Time for oil change. She waked me to call her in an hour for ETA. Showered (ducha) and changed (cambiar) to BOP uniform. Talked to Doris at 10:30 AM: Their ETA is 12:00 PM,, I told her I will be waiting for them. Doris, Quang and Annie arrived at the visitation at 12:00 PM: Mr Johnson was the visitation CO. They are all well. I told them the check engine light was to remind them of oil change for the Mazda SUV. Doris was glad the restitution was behind us. She contacted Eric about the restitution. Quang and Annie have been dancing at Just Dance Ballroom, but the crowd is thinning out. I told Quang and Annie to help Doris look for the Analgesic ointment. Otherwise they will have to make more. I asked them to check out the Oakland Half way house near Grand Lake theatre. The dogs are well except Bobo’s lipoma is growing bigger and the veterinarian wants $500 to remove it, other than that the dogs are well. Diana’s daughter Christina would like to clean our house and drive her to Atwater. Since we already have regular house cleaners and Norma, I told her not the replace them. Doris will try to call Quang and Annie if she needs to go shopping or wants to go out to lunch, but she has to call in advance. She asked me if I needed any money, I asked her to send me $300 dollars next week, I will advise her. Quang dental appointment was scheduled for May. We had Dr Pepper, Pepsi, potato chips, chocolate for snacks. The visitation went well. I told them I could be in Half Way House by 12/2/2024. They left teh visitation room at 2:30 PM. I will call Doris later tonight. Attended Spanish Lessons 2:30 – 3:30 PM. Census count at 3:30 PM. Dinner was served after the count.
