Poem for Thursday and Petco Mice

I did not get much work done on Wednesday. I hate having a cold -- I know people who are dealing with much worse health issues, so I don't want to complain, but my hearing is off, I get dizzy if I stand up too quickly because my ears are clogged, and my sinuses are killing me. I feel best when I'm moving around, so I took a long walk and saw bunnies and deer, but then I ended up exhausted afterward. I just want my energy back so I can do stuff for my family and friends.

We went out to dinner with our neighbors -- Adam's friend Daniel and his parents -- which was the highlight of my day; we had Tara Thai (yay spicy food) and stopped at a Chinese grocery to get moon cakes for the festival tomorrow (it will be an interesting combination of Sukkot, the lunar festival, and Talk Like a Pirate Day). Then we watched Broadchurch, which is not low-stress. Here are a few quick photos of mice, hamsters, and other rodents at Petco:
