My back wasn't quite as ready as the rest of me to be out digging in the garden the other day. Oof.

I went off to get a pedicure at the mall this morning--along with every other retired woman in the county.  The wait was too long for me so I went shopping for some new bath towels and two new bed pillows. 

Now I will just have to figure out a way to switch out Mike's nasty old stained pillow for the new one.  He is not so big on changes.  When I need to mess with him, I amuse myself by moving the couch and chairs away form the wall.  It never takes him more than a minute to start pushing everything back.  I guess he thinks I move things to sweep and then forget to put them back.

So I don't have shiny toe nails, but my refrigerator is sparkling clean.  That makes me happy.  It's a true gift to get pleasure from the little things.

I spent the afternoon at the library.  I volunteered to clean and organize the upstairs activity room and the supply closet for the children's programs.  Four hours into that and I realize that this is going to be my volunteer time for quite some time.  Next time I will take a dust mask.  It needs sorting and organizing, but it is also very, very dusty from the installation of a new heating system.  Ever notice that nothing is ever as simple as it might at first appear to be?


  1. It always surprises me to go for a manicure in the middle day and find there are actually other people besides me who can do that!

  2. That is why no one has done it!! I guess I will paint my own toenails...rarely have the courage to get a pedicure.

  3. I've never had a manicure or a pedicure. Somewhow I just don't have that need.
    Sounds like youv"e got yourself a project with the library. And yes, nothing is ever really simple.

    -chuckle- There's a lot of that, going around!!! :-0

    Pedicure, never had one. Nor a manicure. Yes, there are still women alive, who can say this. -giggles-

    And you got new pillows! How wonderful of you! We are always "going to." And don't. He would be thrilled if I came home with a new one for him!

    Gentle hugs...

  5. I wish you lived near me so you could organize me as a charity event every once in a while.
