Finished walking 5.5 miles and ran 0.5 miles by 7:10 AM. Stretched and practiced Yoga from 7:10 – 8:30 AM. Felt really good after the peaceful walk in the morning, the sun rising over the horizon, and good visualization for me when practicing Yoga. The relaxing Yoga energized me. Ms Tianto was in the office at 8:00 AM. Showered at 9:00 AM. Read the ServSafe Food Handler workbook. Showered at 9:00 AM. Census count at 10:00 AM. Lunch was served after the count. Luncheon menu: Sloppy Joe hamburger, banana, carrots, milk, and punch. Call Doris at 10:35 AM: Doris sounded better. She had a drama last night trying to find Bobo, who was hiding in the Big Dog house under some sheets to avoid Playtoh. I got some scam texts and emails trying to get to know me, I asked her to report as a scam and delete them. I also asked her to clear some of the Chats in WhatsApp especially the following: Texas Tech chat group, Maxwell School, and SDI primary chat group, as they will take up too much memory. The other chat groups are okay to keep for the time being. Told her I completed my walk and practiced Yoga and will try to finish my Book Report today. I will be doing lots of reading of the ServSafe workbook. Doris emailed the narrative for the support groups: Pinole Senior Center and Meal on Wheels to Michael Santos to add to my Release plan on my Web page.
Ms Tianto left the office at 11:00 AM. 11:30 AM Emailed Book Report ” Earning Freedom” to Prison Professor and Doris. Went to the library to read ServSafe food handler from 11:30 – 3:00 PM.

He will be going to a halfway house in Oakland on Wednesday. Beef, Rice, and Starry soft drinks were served at the party. Read at the library from 4:00 – 7:00 PM in between the ACE Classes – Neuroscience 4-4:30 PM and African History – 5-5:30 PM. Went back to the Unit at 7:00 PM.
