So now it's filters are cleaned. It's all cleaned and dusted and drained and put into its winter coat, the batteries are out of the remote and all of its bits and pieces are packed away into the closet for a nice long rest. And the pet door is also tucked away. Whew.
I've been keeping tabs on the dates I set up the air conditioner and put it away for several years. So I added today. I didn't start this until I started this journal so I missed the first few years.
And speaking of cool, I went to see the ice block. There's a design show going on this weekend a couple of blocks from here. (By the way, that photo is fake. The block is near where it's pictured but not exactly there.)
They put it there yesterday. I'm guessing that it will take more than a week to melt completely. It's very cool - in nearly every aspect of that word!
It was a lovely walk. Cool and nice. Lots of people out even that early. I wanted to break a $20 bill so I stopped at the bakery/coffee shop and bought a small quiche (kind of a bigish tart) which I just ate for a late lunch and it was DELICIOUS! Note to self: do that again.
When I got home from that, I did a purse clean out. I took everything out of my pocketbook and re-evaluated. Critical - money/license/cards/tissue/cough pills/emery board/toothpick/ext.charger/sunglasses/c
And I made a doll:
Now I'm watching the baseball game - 7th inning Mariners 8, Oakland 0. Yeah Oakland sucks but still, it's nice to win.
The rest of the day will be knitting and TiVo catch up and my very excellent book. I just read that they have snagged Meryl Streep and JJ Abrams for the movie. (The Nix) The book is way too long for a movie so they will have to cut out half the plot or more which will be a shame. But, I'm loving a nice long excellent read.
