Out On A Round
I left the house with checks to deposit for Soren (and then I got money for next week from the ATM), a book to leave at the library, two packages to mail, and the list of what labs I should have. I deposited the checks, got money, dropped off that book and picked up two more I had on hold, mailed the two packages, went to Kaiser and got more amoxicillin and my labs, and then to Red Robin for dinner. I had an Asian salad -- basically just salad mix with red peppers, grated carrots, mandarin oranges, and a sesame-soy glazed chicken breast. It was very good. Then when I picked up the mail on the way in, I had a package -- another pair of pants to try. So I came back with just about the same volume of stuff I left with, just all different stuff.
The high today was 63F and I wore my standard winterwear -- tie-dye cotton knit top & cotton knit pants -- but I saw young women wearing sleeveless spray-on tops and other older women wearing coats. It's supposed to still be in the low 60s by Monday, so I can wear my spring/fall coat. We have very short springs & falls in the DC area and I wear the coat maybe ten times a year. At that rate, it'll outlast me.
I filled the birdfeeder when I got home and left the sliding door open for a while so Shiva could smell the outdoors. I finally gave up and shut it. I think it's time to turn on the heat, too. The cats are mad at me. They have a full dish of dry food from the last three days and I'm not giving them more until they eat most of what's there.
