Day off!

Today was a rare treat for me--a Monday off from work.   This day off has allowed me to indulge in a little dreamy/practical time today.

Some of the practical:

Laundry, of course.  I have decided to try to do one non-clothing load of laundry each day this week.  I usually do all the sheets, towels, napkins, dishcloths, etc, in one marathon day, but that just leaves me feeling so tired by the end.  If I can just do one a day...maybe we'll be able to get in and out of the house by Thursday.

The post office.  Finishing those nagging chores is so nice!

Mammogram. Only about a week overdue.  But done.

And the Dreamy?

Number one on my list today was a pedicure.  I haven't had one in years, but after all that walking in London, my poor feet desperately needed some attention.  The most time-consuming part of the pedicure was choosing a color.  This is Raspberry, and it looks much darker than it did in the bottle. I'll go a little lighter next time...because there will be a next time!

 The next thing I did today was catch up on some TV viewing during lunch.  I watched an episode of Castle from a couple of weeks ago.  Always entertaining. 

And tonight I'm going to watch another episode of Sherlock--I found the first season at the library.  It was great fun to see the London landmarks during the opening credits.

But before my viewing party tonight, I have a few hours of intensely practical to attend to--homework, dance lessons, cub scouts.  And somewhere in there, dinner.

Happy Monday!
