It’s been a mellow weekend, and also quite a hot one!
I was off Friday, so I have had plenty of time to relax, as well as get in some major yard work. I’m still working on pruning some large shrubs and trees in my front yard – who landscapes a small front yard with several 30 foot shrubs and trees!? There really ought to be better education on this topic…
I got my hair cut on Friday – getting rid of the split ends that have been building up since my last haircut in January! It looks and feels so nice again! I have my layers back and my curls are so bouncy again! Except in that picture, because it’s been straightened… Not that there’s really anyone around to see my hair, but oh well, it’s the little things…
On Wednesday Lelani and I tried out a new trail area in town, and enjoyed a short after-work walk. Afterwards we got beer and ciders, and walked down to see the sunset over the water. It was so peaceful!
I finished another book last night, so now I’m up to 26 books for the year. Not bad so far! Cora has been enjoying some TV binge watching too.
My aunt and uncle are in town visiting my mom, so I’ll get to hang out with them some later today. I haven’t seen them since January!
Yesterday some creepy middle-aged guy (more middle-aged than me, btw…) decided to park his car on my grass, get out of his car and proceed to urinate in my yard. All while I was watching him. So of course I ran over and yelled at him to leave – I had to channel my inner little crazy girl with a number of choice expletives – so hopefully he thinks better of it next time. Gross! I live less than a mile away from at least a dozen places one could go to the bathroom – two grocery stores, a Walgreens, a Rite-Aid, a number of fast food joints, so I’m not sure why he thought pissing in someone’s yard in a well-populated neighborhood in the middle of the city was a great idea. I don’t understand what’s wrong with some people.
Last Sunday Lelani, Audrey and I went up to the mountain and hiked part of the Chain Lakes Trail. We got a late start so we didn’t do the entire trail, but it was still nice to get up into the mountains and have a peaceful respite!
At work we’ve decided to have our administrative/office staff continue to work from home through the end of the year. Another 4.5 months at least of saving on my commute! I’m trying to stay thinking of the positives, and not the fact that I’ve barely seen any of my coworkers since mid-March. And… we hired my new boss! He doesn’t start until September, but that’s one big project off my plate!
Well I need to go get some more housework done, as it’s back to “work” from home tomorrow!
