I didn't get a lot done today aside exercising. I had my car appointment at 11am and didn't get out of there until 3pm! What a waste of a perfectly good afternoon. Well, it wasn't a total waste, I got quite a bit of reading done in "The Tsar of Love and Techno". And chatted with a couple other people who were there and then gone. I also walked to the thrift store and got some giant shells, a bulletin board and a cool hand built bowl.
I have no idea what this day is going to cost me...well, ok, I do sorta' if I add things in my head. I'm taking the car back on Wednesday to have the brakes done and then my mechanic said I can pay the whole bill. I'm guessing about $800 or more altogether. BUT that is how it goes when I buy a used car. I need to work all the bugs out and get it to where I want it. And that usually isn't free.
By the time I got home it was almost 5pm. Mail was fun, I got a note and some coloring book pages from a book I sent my friend while she was in the hospital. She discovered she had leukemia after another procedure and so it has been a real whirlwind for her, hospital to hospital, home and back to the hospital. She lives over 2 hours away so it is hard to know where she is at any given time. Anyway, we've become penpals of a sort.
I also got my Northern Sun catalog that I requested last year. I delivered one to a mail customer and emailed the company to send me a catalog and they did. Immediately my eyes fell to this poster above and I knew I had to have it! So I ordered it, a pack of matching notecards and a recycled glass Earth marble. I have a pair of ceramic hands and always wished I could have them holding the Earth. Now I can!!
It is "early" yet. Maybe I can get some painting in and then relaxation yoga. Tomorrow is the lab work in the morning and then the rest of the day is mine.
