Today is new nails day... They are too long again and I'm tired of this color so cool. Doing this every 3 weeks is working out well, time-wise and money-wise and patiencewiththeprocess-wise. And I so love having nails that look nice ALWAYS.

This morning I followed a link from Reddit to a conversation that included a link to a fabric site and a particular fabric. I looked at the designer's name and it was spacefem! Small world.

I spent some time yesterday back in the sewing area planning the wallet I want to make. It's using techniques that I've never tried so I'm going slowly and using waste fabric. If it works, I'll do it with nice fabric. It amuses me that I can go back to the room with the sewing machine (which is really just a side off the hallway by the front door) and just lose time. I'd probably lose more if I remembered good posture so I don't kill my back and it was cooler.

It is supposed to be cooler today. Oh I hope.

Yesterday I did my walk inside. I like a lot about it. No wind, no sun glare, even walking surface, cooler. But it really does always feel like stalking which cracks me up.

Time now to suit up and head to the pool, then UPS to drop off, then nails, then home or wherever. Loosey goosey. That's me.

Ahhh cool, I love you so much

It is so wonderful outside today. I parked farther away than usual from the nail place and enjoyed the walk (and found 3 places I'd never heard of before to have brunch after my swims on the weekends).

After my nails were done, I walked around a couple of more blocks and enjoyed it enormously.

I was thinking that about Thanksgiving, I'm going to give this walking thing some serious attention so I can be in good shape for my brother's visit. Last year I could hardly walk across the street without having to stop and catch my breath. It seriously impaired our adventures. This year will be very different.

But, I may start even earlier. It's just so nice to be able to walk and see stuff (as opposed to doors and cars on my inside walks) and still be comfortable.

And... I remembered to stop at Papa Murphy's. I usually am ready to head home before they open except on nail day. I have a lovely pepperoni pizza waiting for dinner. I still can't believe how delicious it always is for $5.48. A steal.
