AKA – more time spent on public transport than anything else….
Normally, when I have an appointment at the SFVA, since the pandemic, I have just taken to driving over extremely early, sitting in the car and knitting, then appointments, then driving home. Mostly I attempt to keep everything on Wednesdays which just happens to also be the day of their Farmer’s Market.
Today? Meh – George had to be in Los Altos around noon. There was no way I could guarantee that I would be back in time. Since I can get to the VA on public transportation, he got the car for his trip. So off I went with a ride to North Berkeley, BART to Powell Street, 3 blocks up to Geary, Muni’s 38 which just happens to end at the VA.
My appointment went fine but skipped the market as it appeared that the 38 was about ready to leave on the return trip to downtown SF. Off at Powell, down the hill to BART. Redline to downtown Berkeley and off to the ACTransit stop for the 65. The bus stop was now a block further along Oxford than I remembered. Looking at the schedule at the old stop, I thought I had another 30 minutes to wait, then spied the bus a block behind me. The driver actually waited for me at the new stop. Up the hill, turn on to Euclid and get dropped off less than a block from the house.
Aren’t you tired just reading this? I was exhausted by the time I got home at 1230. Went to take a nap. Got up, looked at the clock. Am headed back to bed. No knitting, stitching, crochet, or sewing was accomplished today….
