Silly Little Pleasures!!
Sunday, July 05, 2020
This isn't going to be a kayaking opportunity soon . . . DH is tap dancing to beat the band, meeting urgent++ deadlines: and I've been there myself and I know just what it feels like. (And: I'm helping all I can, both with the professional stuff AND the domestic stuff, to reduce the pressure on him . . . )
But in the meantime . . . how appreciative I am of my local library branch scooping up multiple long-standing requests on my "hold" list and emailing me that they've got 'em!! Over the past week I've made FOUR trips so I'm well stocked with reading materials again . . . including new-to-me Alexander McCall Smiths which I'm especially enjoying! Yesterday about 2 pm I was absolutely the only patron at the library . . . masked, sanitized, and met at the desk with social distancing in place. I told them how grateful I am for the service: and the young assistant said she's also very happy to be out of her basement, where she's been working!!
And: another silly thing: I quite desperately needed to make some lingerie purchases. Yeah. Hooks on bras all twisted irredeemably (yes, I had tried to twist 'em back, not possible) and saggy-butt panties too . . . SO depressing. I don't like to order on line because the feel of the fabric is very important to me . . .
But although I couldn't use the fitting room at the grocery store yesterday morning (of course) I found some very pretty microfibre bralettes and matching undies that looked like they'd do the job . . . risked it (not a big investment), brought 'em home, tried 'em on, they are perfect!!! I cleared all the offending items out of my drawers and will order some more, on line, now I KNOW that they work. Not expensive, and really uplifting -- mood wise and otherwise also!!
