05:29 pm: Out and About
I put down two dishes with a wet pouch-worth on each, and Spirit has eaten from both. Shiva keeps looking at me longingly.

ETA: It occurred to me to grab Shiva in a towel and look at his mouth again. Yuck. I called the vet. He lapped some ice cream last night, I'll try some of that.

I went out to run errands -- drop the condo fee return envelope (I don't use these, they might as well have them back) and the proof that I had my dryer vent cleaned myself. I could have waited for now, I suppose, it would be cheaper, but I might have completely lost drying capability. Then I dropped by Hancock Fabrics where I found batik fabric just the right colors for my BFAC project, then on to the library to drop off a book.

On the way home, I picked up two days-worth of mail because we never saw the maillady yesterday. I got coupons for two new restaurants in the mail, so I'll try them before Rick and family come to see if we want to go to one of them and use the coupon (coupons rarely work for single people who don't eat much). I have small presents for the kids (from Merimask) -- a blue dragon keychain for my nephew and a small luna moth barrette for my niece -- but I'm not my dad, I wouldn't make them come in order to get them.

It's a lovely day -- warm and sunny, lots of dandelion fluff in the air -- and will be a bit hotter tomorrow. We have the windows open again. I'm wearing one of the new tops I got and was noticing that they really do expect large women to be shaped differently than I am. The two front pockets are about a third around to my side. They think when you gain weight, you get wide and flat, but I kept my hourglass shape -- it's just a centuryglass now.

Centuryglass! LOVE it! Must adopt it.

Coupons do tend to be hopeless for single people, even when they eat a lot. Most of the coupons I get for Chinese and Mexican (two styles I don't cook) are "buy one, get one free" things, which is very frustrating.

Not my coinage, and I should have said: Sue Mason made that up!

Yeah, a lot of them are variations of buy one, get one free, or you have to spend a certain amount to get the percentage off, and I'd have to eat for two for that.
