Close call of the nobigdeal variety

When I got done with my swim, I thought about maybe dropping by the drugstore, and/or the grocery store but first going someplace for breakfast. But, by the time I got to my car, I just headed home. About half way there I realized that I had just dodged a bullet. It's a Seahawks home game day and the mayhem had already started. I got to my garage with only a little bit of hassle but had I not headed home promptly, I'd really have been hosed.

Earlier in the week I scored some not great but totally acceptable really cheap lox and I had tomatoes so today's breakfast was a bagel, split, buttered and broiled until the butter was doing a little yellow/tan dance on top of the bagel. Then I slathered it with cream cheese and tossed on some capers, then lox, then topped it with sliced tomatoes. Really quite delicious.

In my effort to spend less to no money, I just bought a theater ticket! Which I never do. But there's a new musical about all the planes and people diverted to Newfoundland that I really want to see and twitter had a bit of a rave about this production and there are weekend matinees not on holiday weekends and I can get there by bus fairly easily and I got a first row balcony for cheap. So... I spent the $.

But, back to the swim. I wore the tanktini I made. It worked better than I thought it would but I remember when I don't like two piece suits. They are just too much bother for no extra reward. But, if I ever get a spot where a one piece would rub me and aggravate it (which has happened), I now have a solid alternative.

I have one more suit cute out to sew up today and then I think I'm going to take a suit making break.

I watched the most interesting documentary last night from HBO. The Diplomat was about a man I had been only vaguely aware of, who served the state department and various other governmental bodies from before the Vietnam War through Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State. It was made by his son and it turned out to be quite fascinating.

Today will be sewing and TV watching and maybe a stroll around the building. The sun is way too glare-y to go outside plus the 'hood is wracked with football whackos. Inside is so much better anyway.
