Lift up your hands in the sanctuary
and praise the LORD.
Actually, no hijinks. I just said that because it sounds exciting.
In reality, I stayed home from work on Friday because, most unfairly, I was coming down with a summer cold. Waking up at 5:30 I felt completely miserable and dreary and my nose had apparently converted overnight into a leaking faucet. During the course of the day I took two naps and watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (part of our plan to watch all the Harry Potter movies before seeing the newest one, a plan only partly spoiled by the fact the first Harry Potter movie was so scratched no DVD player could read it). We also walked through the pouring thunderstorm-rain to the Reebok outlet to obtain a non-falling apart pair of exercise shoes for Ian and then stopped at the glasses place to finish getting my glasses repaired. Along the way I took the picture from yesterday, along with this:
and a few other pictures. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that Ian gave me my anniversary gift early: We had the car detailed. It now glitters with cleanliness. I actually had to retrieve the car from the detailing place in the afternoon, and as I rode my bike over there I got caught in a huge, tremendous thunderstorm that drenched me to the bone instantly. Frazzled by that, I accidentally left my wallet at the car place when I drove home.
