Housecoat Heaven

When I finish work for today (I've changed my office hours to 1 - 5 p.m. so my mornings are free! FREE, I tell you!), I think Everett and I will head into town to do a little laundry.

I used to feel sorry for people who had to do their washing at a laundromat, assuming they couldn't afford a washing machine and dryer. Now I know money has nothing to do with it or, at least, not always. Not that a sizeable influx of money wouldn't be a good thing, but it's the friggin' water situation around here ... grumble grumble grumble... and money will only go partway toward remedying it.

Actually it's not that bad. A person gets used to it and makes do. Like most things, I suppose.

Right now it is 10:30 and I am still sitting here in my housecoat, though have been outside to turn the sprinkler on a section of the flowerbed. Was too lazy to head off on my daily walk when I first got up and will have to do it tonight instead, as the day promises to be hot.

Everett sometimes accompanies me but can't keep up so he either turns back or, at my suggestion, rides a bike alongside, only then I can't keep up with him. Guess I could start jogging, which I've actually been tempted to do lately. Must be a sign I'm getting fit.

In the course of my internet research this afternoon, I came across Tantoo Cardinal's webpage, where she offers a sampling of some excellent videos. Click here to see them.
