This time the promised rain did materialize. Got as cool as about 50 and didn't get over 60. More rain tomorrow and the next day. Tomorrow morning early I take my car in (finally!) for the stupid headlight switch recall and another one they just found regarding the airbag (just have to check it) as well as a slightly-overdue oil change. Ooh, I need to print the coupon for the oil change. The last few times I tried to print from here in my apt., it didn't work, so I may actually have to go over to the house. Whew! Called Alison, sent her the link and she'll print it for me.
Just started a new Harlan Coben mystery a few hours ago, so I'll have something good to read while I wait for the car. He's the best! Twists and turns up to the very last page!
Well, thanks for the info on all those great Bens out there! I had no idea there were so many among the families of my friends here! Haven't had any communication from "mine" today.
Took an early-morning run to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's this morning. Got some good stuff but forgot several things from TJ's. Guess I should always make a list! Can't believe I came home without my special butter! They had amazing pumpkins and squashes outside the store. All shapes and sizes and colors. Saw what I think were Hubbard squashes--the green-gray bumpy ones. I may have to buy an interesting one when I go ack or at least some of the cute, tiny ones inside.
Otherwise, it's been a very quiet day. It did occur to me this morning that what I've been thinking is poison ivy on my arm looks suspiciously like shingles. Still red and angry-looking after a week. I never had it anywhere except on my left side near the waist, and this is on my right arm. Hmmm...might be a good reason to finally meet my new doc and see what she thinks. I've never had my skin really gone over and I'm probably overdue.
Wishing you all a fantastic week and hope everyone's weather is nice, whatever your definition of that is!
