i got up this morning and hauled into work for a bit, where our very bored activites coordinator was minding the yard sale. did a volunteer interview, which didn't take as much time as expected, went to the store, got some wine, went to the library, went downtown, got a snack, bummed around for a bit, and then caught a bus over to Ms. almostthere's, where we washed the quilt (thanks for the advice, guys. big washer, woolite, gentle cycle, fluffy cool dry, and it seems to be fine) and chattered about life and work and boys and stuff. she cooked me the most wonderful dinner of salad and mashed potatoes and salmon, and we drank the wine, and chattered some more, and then she was kind and drove me home. home was hanging out with Ginger and playing Mario 64 and working on a dress and talking to my boy.

and now i fall over, because i'm exhausted and tommorow is going to be a long, long day.

i'd intended to go to the U-district farmer's market yesterday, because i've actually been eating those fruit and vegetable things lately (sssh, don't tell my mom :) ). work got rescheduled and i didn't get to go, so i ventured down to Pike Place this morning. i like going to Pike Place, but the number of people there on a gorgeous Sunday morning is insane, so it was in and out as quickly as possible. the haul was some wonderful looking lettuce, two huge tomatoes, and mushrooms (mm, salad), basil and cilantro (mmm, pad thai), three softball sized oranges, two plums, two plumcots, and a nectarine. and one happy joyce. :)

it's a nice day out there, too. the older i'm getting, and the longer i've lived in progressively more temperate climates, the more my heat tolerance has gone down. so this whole almost-not quite-but getting there fall this is nice. :)

dear self:

obtain more dressy clothes. you have to look like a grownup more and more often these days.
dress shoes that aren't falling to pieces would be good, too.

loves,
me
