08:43 pm: The Nap

Spirit and I just got up from a two-hour nap. I started coughing and it annoyed her and she got out from under the duvet and then complained that she wanted water. So I figured it was time to get up.

redbird asked in her post where she can get good chocolate and I offered up the local professionals, Chocolaterie Wanders. I've bought myself chocolates from there occasionally, but they're really good so I use them for gifts, too. Their website was changing so I looked through again -- they don't have the kind of chocolates up at the moment, but they do have chocolate-dipped crystalized ginger and a new tea chocolate. So I ordered those and they responded as they usually do when it's for me -- if I wanted to come pick it up, they'll refund the shipping. They're about five minutes away in an industrial center and there's a small front office, but the rest is all making chocolate.

So that's what I did first today, I picked up the chocolates, then I went to the DMV to renew my driver's license. It hadn't been this busy the last time I was there, but that was ten years ago -- the fifth year after a renewal in person, you can renew online. They're letting you do a lot online now. I waited an hour to have my number called and then spent ten minutes getting a paper that I have to drive with (along with the old license) for the next seven to 10 days until I get the new one. I almost didn't get it, though; I wasn't reading one of the letters right and I gave her the letters of that general shape and got it right on the third try. I'll have to see the optometrist.

Then I headed off for a short grocery trip. I have Peapod delivering on Thursday so I only picked up some things that the grocery has on sale, that I have coupons for, but aren't on sale at Peapod.

I started on the computer and when the sleepiness took over, I put the first load of the cat blankies in the washer and Spirit and I headed down to sleep.

It's hard for me to walk in Old Town because they moved all the parking spots away. CW also sell in other places all over DC and NoVA (tells which under Locations), but I talked to them on the phone when they first started the business, so I feel comfortable going to get mine. Most of the time, they want you to pick it up where they sell or order online.

And yes, they're very good chocolates.
