|Maya was so thrilled to go over to Tessa's and try on princess costumes|
|Right before sunset, a strong storm blew through. I was trying to photograph the lightning but kept missing|
All day we sweated in our sauna weather. It became wonderfully cool right before the storm but today, back to the sauna. Hope it is cooler on our bike ride.
I was out very early running in the neighborhood before the sun completely came up to bake me yesterday. A woman stopped me to ask for help. She had taken her garbage out and the door locked behind her. Worse, her husband was on a business trip. So I invited her to come to my house to get a locksmith. Not sure why she didn't knock on a neighbor's house instead of stopping a runner but maybe everyone else was gone. I never had seen her before so hopefully it wasn't a ruse to break into a house. There are about 24 houses in our small neighborhood and maybe I could identify half of the people. Not the friendliest group.
According to Zillow, our house has appreciated in value about $1000/month since we moved here. Sooner or later this has to stop. We didn't take our protest of the unfair taxation to the state as they demanded either $200 or $400 to hear our case.
My friend wanted to check out the few businesses that are around here so she came to lunch. She has such a sensitive stomach, it was a challenge to cook something for her. Walking in the heat totally drained her.
Then we had our weekly Maya day made easier by having her play with Tessa. She is a hard one to entertain. She tapped my shoulder in the middle of the night startling me as I was confused to who this small shadowy creature was. In the morning, she follows me around the garden dead heading stuff. She loves to select which cleanser I wash her face with. Do you want to smell like coconut, pomegranate, the sea or flowers? Today, flowers.
I now have beautiful peach colored nails, just what I need to ride 280 miles. And some new tiles courtesy of 'super senior day'.
Now to my cooking class.
