First new iPhone day

It is most strange.
It's almost like a new small animal has moved into the house.
I have left the smarter-phone in the kitchen, where it can nibble on gluten-free cookies if it wants to.
(Eve, stop that:  you're anthropomorphizing.)  (How can I not?  the phone talks by itself.)

*****
On the other hand, human beings:  
our monthly early Monday morning group met, and it was so good to see them all
my friend met with others downtown; I joined them for lunch---a delight
then they headed for the hills, literally, for a women's retreat

The house feels oddly empty; even Mishka notices.
And I am falling asleep at the keyboard.

Good night...
