Yesterday Amy at Love Made My Home posted a 10 Random Things on Friday and said we could join in. Well I'm feeling pretty random so I'll join in.
First of all is the weather. As summers go in the south this hasn't been a particularly hot one. More days in the 80's than the 90's. But oh it's been humid, some days sitting at 99% humidity according to our barometer and today is one of those days.
Second, We were supposed to paint Miss Kitty's bathroom today, but after breakfast when we were supposed to get started we looked at each other and collectively said, "NO", neither of us was in the mood for painting.
Third Fat Bottomed Girls (by Queen) to Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress ( by The Hollies) was the gamut on my MP3 player yesterday when I worked out. And I'm much closer to being a fat bottomed girl than a long cool woman.
Fourth, we saw Queen years ago when Freddie Mercury was still alive, quite a show.
Fifth, Cleaning old meat out of the freezer and making a pork stew, added a ham hock for Mac, I don't particularly like them, but he's not crazy about zucchini and I put some of that in so it all balances out.
Sixth, Got a card from my husband's cousin Isabel, she's the only person who ever writes to us. She's 85 and still traveling the world. She's getting ready to fly from San Francisco to Toronto, Canada and on to Venice, Italy where she with join her cruise ship to cruise the Adriatic and at the end of the cruise she's going to spend some time in Athens, Greece. She is amazing. Mac wondered how much luggage she takes with her because she is the most elegant lady we know.
Seventh I picked up a new shade of blonde to color my hair, will be doing it tomorrow. Hope it's not too light, but I need to color that gray some way. I can live with wrinkles, my eye sight is so bad I hardly see them, but gray hair is another story.
Eighth I've stopped doing German on Duolingo, I'm tired of sorting out the Der, Die, Das. Instead I'm working on my Spanish as a trip to Spain seems to be in our future. I appreciate that if you have to have gender articles you should give me a clue to which to use. I appreciate that Spanish says, with some exceptions, if it ends in o it's masculine, if it ends in a it's feminine. If I were in charge of languages I'd have one word for the, whether it was masculine, feminine, neuter or plural.
Ninth I'm reading a book, Skippy Dies, by Paul Murray, set in an expensive Irish boy's school. It keep alternating between being quite funny and quite depressing. I don't know which will win out in the end.
Tenth We're almost through July, most of the way through summer, except that summer lasts through October here. Oh well, it was nice swimming this morning and I realized that they are only 149 days till Christmas.
If you're feeling random join in.
