Freaky flash rainstorms have been coming down all day. It goes from no rain, to heavy downpour, to no rain... a break of a few hours, then it starts again. The bummer is that our high school graduation is tonight, followed by the big Project Graduation party. The theme for PG this year is Toy Story, and the props and set up is all but done. The problem is, the paint used on all the elaborate props are water based, and these flash rainstorms are really messing them up!
I think the kids will be happy no matter what, but I feel badly for everyone who worked so hard on the set for the party. OTOH, I don't have a kid graduating this year
, so part of me is a bit snarky about how much freakin' money they pour into Project Graduation every year.
Deer aren't exactly strange, except that we have a very suburban town, houses are fairly close together, and this morning I saw both a deer and a fox ambling across my neighbor's backyard, right outside my kitchen window. It's like the Wild Kingdom out there!
I haven't been answering my phone much lately.
6 very humid, slow miles this morning with a friend of mine, who told me she met Beastie Girl at a 5K a few days ago. I love it when my worlds collide!
After the run I spent about 45 minutes doing weight and core work on my dumpster diving treasures- did I mention this before?- a dog walking client of mine (the human not the dog
) was about to throw out a weight bench and a body weight resistance machine, so I took them, and they are fantastic! The bench makes free weights a lot tougher, and the other thing has all these pulleys that you use to pull yourself up on a sliding bench, you can do 100 different exercises with it- though I'll probably use it for 3. There's also an attachment for pull-ups that I love! The only problem is that it's bigger than I thought it would be, and it's in my living room until I can clean my basement tomorrow.
But I'm pretty sore from all the weight work, though in a good way.
Bonus: Nope! I had an answer in mind when I posted the question, but after some thought, every scenario I conjured up just ended really, really badly.
