After my pool/tire/walking adventure yesterday morning, I sat on my ass all the rest of the day. I watched the Mariners lose and then watched other TV and so, come bedtime, I fell asleep quickly but felt like I was awake most of the night. I turned off the alarm but woke up at 4:30 anyway. I conjured on ways to get to the pool for my regular swim time but came up blank and dozed some more. I felt like I had a bad night's sleep but, then...

My tracker says I slept way better than I thought I did. So yeah?!


It's now almost 7. The next step is to call the tire place when they open at 8 and discuss options. Best case, they will say, come on over, we'll figure it out and fix you up. Then I'll go give them the key and hit the pool and when I'm done, they will be too. That's best case.
Right now there are no Car2Go's anywhere near here so it would be Lyft but I do appreciate options.

I have lots of little things that need to be done around the house. None are critical. I should just start at one end of the house and work to the other until all is done. I might even just do that. It's coolish out this morning but that will be gone by mid morning so I'm keeping the outside out and the a/c on. So far, it's done a nice job of keeping cool without having to resort to the loud fan. I've also kept the insulating shades down.

One saving grace in summers around here is the lack of humidity. I've never really understood it. I grew up in humidity. I never knew hot came any other way until I got to the west coast. I got out here and discovered that you could leave a saltine cracker on the counter for an hour and it would still be crisp! I live 2 blocks from Elliott Bay - a huge water way. We have clouds and mist on many many days throughout the year. And we get a fair amount of rain. And still. Our humid days are few and far between. I don't get it but I do appreciate it. Massively.

Ok, now I'm going to get off my ass, get dressed and get some of these little chores knocked out while I'm waiting for the tire place to wake up.
