Me again. I'm on a blogging roll here. Guess where I am? Sitting outside Panera's on a gorgeous fall day. I had the same Panini that I enjoyed on Saturday night. So, how was my day? Busy and great. I woke up and started cleaning. I didn't plan it, I just did it. I'm talking Soft Scrubbing the counters and cabinets, doing the bathrooms, vacuuming, dusting, etc. And doing my least favorite job: my hardwood floors. I'm so happy it's done. Next up was a drive to the aquatic center. I swam my usual amount, and rushed to get ready for my appointment. I should have plugged the address of the counselor into my GPS beforehand so I'd know how much time to allow for the drive, but I didn't. So I rushed, and got there with 15 minutes to spare. I loved the psychologist! We bonded. She's smart, young, down-to-earth, and she gave good advice. I have homework. And...my co-pay is only $16. I could do a dance about that. I was expecting something like $85. Woohoo. I made an appointment for next Monday but realize I'll have to change it because I'll be out of town at a hair show. So, I left there and went to a near-by beauty supply store that I never go to, but that carries my DevaCurl hairproducts. I bought the NoPoo and OneCondition for color-treated hair. Despite my swim cap, the chlorine is drying out my hair and messing with the color. I shopped, then thought, what next? And I thought of sitting at an outside table with my laptop and an early dinner. Life is good. For the moment, anyway.

Happy beach picture

Hello - It's a warm fall day here too - one of the first 'real' fall days. I wish I was out there at the table with you.

I've got my work done for the day so I'm catching up on blogs - hope your having a blast!

Happiness in pockets of time. I'd love to be sitting at Panera with you.

I wish someone around here would start carrying the devacurl products - I'm addicted.
