After the pool, I went to IHop. There's a fairly nice one between here and the Saturday pool. Today there were several groups ahead of me and the lady at the desk was telling people it would be 20-30 minutes. She told me, for 1 that it would be about 20. So I said ok and figured I'd sit down and scope out an alternate plan on my phone. Before I could get to it, though, they called my name and sat me at a perfectly fine table. Food was good. Service was good. Screaming children were far enough away not to bug me. It was fine.
Then I went to the Dollar Store for really no good reason and killed $10. It was fun. I love school supply time. I did get Zoey a new collar. I actually got her one to wear and a backup for when that one goes. Safety cat collars with bells for a buck??! Quelle bon! (Most of the stuff in the Dollar Store has French and/or French and English labels. It cracks me up. I love the cat toy section or rather the Jouets Pour Chats section.)
I stopped at the Grocery Outlet and then came on home.
Ooops the collar slides to too big way too easily. Ok, added a knot to it and now we're fine. Stunning, as a matter of fact.
Now I'm home with nothing that has to be done. Well, I do need to put away the laundry so I can read on the fish bed.
I'm still reading Gulp by Mary Roach. It's a fascinating look at the trip that food takes from mouth to asshole. It's on the Kindle and really interruptable so I keep reading other stuff and somehow only pick up Gulp when I'm in restaurants. This morning's reading covered the upper parts of the elimination system. While Roach is a gifted scientist and writer with hilarious flare, there has to be better things to read over breakfast... or any meal.
The sun has been out a little today but right now it is cloudy and breezy and wonderful.
