My swim buddy, Brodie's husband got her a waterproof MP3 player for Christmas and her kids loaded it with music for her and today was her first day giving it a test drive. She was amazed at how much fun it was to swim with entertainment. She's right.
After my swim, I hit Trader Joe's and then got coffee and then got my nails done. They had three new colors and I let the manicurist pick. I would never have chosen what she did but I really do like it.
My house cleaner came while I was gone and everything is sparkley. I wonder if I can keep it that way until Sunday when my brother gets here. Probably not.
The power was off in the front part of the house which was kind of curious. I flipped the breaker and all was fine. Her vacuum has blown the circuit a couple of times but only when the air conditioner or space heater were going and neither were on today. Weird but no harm, no foul.
My manicurist told me that I needed to get better at using hand lotion. Yes, Ma'mam. She's right. My skin is so dry and crackly, I need to swim in lotion but I should be able to at least keep my hands hydrated. I promised her I would do better.
While I was getting my nails done, there were 3 cop cars with lights flashing parked outside. We couldn't see what was happening but clearly something. It cleared up about about 15 minutes. When I got home I checked the West Seattle Blog twitter feed. You cannot fart in West Seattle without those folks knowing about it and reporting. Sure enough, it was an accidental alarm trip at the bank next door. Nice to know. The internet is so wonderful.
Time to make some dolls.
