How is it August already? What the heck. I had a busy & productive week, and I’m looking forward to a project at work this coming week. Baseball has been good (although, as I said last week I feel ambivalent), and hockey started back – and the Hurricanes won!

I did that thing where I just couldn’t throw out the lotion. There was a LOT in there! (Yes, I’m aware that the container I chose is probably a butter keeper or some such, but lotion is sort of like butter, right?)

There was a meme going around asking how old you were before you had a Black teacher. I had both of these ladies in the 9th grade. Ms. Harshaw (left) was my Freshman English teacher, and Ms. Setzer (right) was my homeroom & social studies teacher. I didn’t think about it at the time, but can you even imagine what it must have been like for a Black woman to teach in rural North Carolina in the late 70s/early 80s?

I had a selfie from today (meant to show how low I had slouched in my office chair), but I thought you needed to see this instead. Made me laugh!

Ms. Pinky after the rain.

Morning glorious! (Yes, we had petunias on Thursday last week too.)
Dr. M went to see his dad & brought home these huge tomatoes! (That’s my grandmother’s plate that they’re sitting on.)

I was trying to get a picture because I thought my hair looked good & I wanted to show my beautician how well my cut is holding up. But these didn’t really showcase it very well.
Saturday, August 1st
Our Misfits box came & instead of yellow squash we got these weird looking things that are about as big as my head! I posted on the Interwebs and about forty eleven people told me that it is jicama. Something new for Dr. M to play with!
I took the beard off of the first gnome I made & gave it hair instead. I think I have a Mr. & Mrs. Gnome now. (I included the beard picture in case you don’t remember how weird it looked).
Yet more new masks (and I have another one that I haven’t photographed yet) – from the Atlanta Braves this time. I think we really are done buying masks now. Maybe.
In case you’re concerned about my allergy med saga, on Wednesday I started the second of the three that my doctor gave me to try – Allegra. I think I’ve taken this in the past? It doesn’t make me as drowsy as the Zyrtec did, but it does make me a little drowsy. I’ll give it the full ten days to see what I think & then I’ll try the third one – the hilariously (to me) named Xyzal. Do you have any interesting medical news to share?
