Between 1100 to 1300, I don’t schedule any appointments with patients. I usually use that time to eat my lunch and type my progress notes. I also try to leave my office and go for a walk.
Today was a beautiful day to be outside. I walked out to the parking lot and on my way to my car, I could see sheep grazing on the hillside across from the prison. (You can see them, too, if you click on the photo and look closely at the green field to the left of the picture.) I took this photo while sitting in my car. I wanted to snap a better photo, but to do so would have required standing in the middle of the parking lot with my cell phone in hand, which would have looked very suspicious and definitely attract the attention of the guard tower.
Anyway, I also wanted a visual reminder of sunny California weather, because in twenty-four hours, I will be in cold (possibly snowy) Minnesota. We’re leaving Ventura tomorrow morning at 5:30 AM to drive to LAX. It’s going to be a long day of traveling, but I should have some adventures to share.
