As soon as I stepped out the front door into the warm sunshine of the day, I realized that I had committed a grave sartorial error. Surprisingly, my error had nothing to do with the weather. I often wander out the door in a heavy coat in warm weather or no coat in chilly weather, but this error was totally different.
Unlike my hair that enjoys daily dance parties, my trousers are fully devoted to the principles of gravity. I tied them up with a belt made of elastic (hey, I spent a lot of my childhood in Kentucky – what do you expect?), but gravity seems to be winning this war.
In addition, both of my tops have those hangar holders that like to escape. I really need to cut them off or something.
If I don’t move, I look great.
In other news, today is a glorious day in Wakkanai! I wish I were on a ferry today – it would be a perfect day to put on a jacket, sit on the deck, and let my legs soak in the sun.
I had some time in the office today. While walking to the office, I ended up in a small group of people headed for the building. I was hoping that we would end up with four people crossing the last street in a single file line. Every time that happens, I get a small giggle imagining that we are recreating the Beatles’ Abbey Road, or whatever it was.
But today, it was six people, and someone was out of the nice line. Guess he was in a hurry to get to work!
Today also involved a speedy trip to the post office and the drugstore. Apparently, some of the vitamin drinks have scorpion or something in them. This makes zero sense to me, and I dearly hope I misunderstood. But just in case, no thanks!
Here's a cute cover.

The weather today started out icky, but it was a little bit warmer than it has been. I cleaned my house for the Skype interview and headed to work. I wasn’t there for long before I came home for the interview.
I won’t say much about the interview, but my family is right. I talk with my hands a LOT. There was some time at the beginning of the interview that was audio only, but I was still waving my hands around (I’m surprised a plane didn’t land in the backyard.
By the time I got off work, the weather had turned beautiful. So, I decided to go out for some exercise.
I made my way down to the bay where the boats park (dock?).
Saw a bird
The water was just so pretty.
Came home, weeded the back yard, and then conked over on the couch. I really wanted a food-that-shall-remain-nameless, so I went to a shop-that-shall-remain-nameless. The shop was populated almost entirely by my high school students (and I was in exercise clothes with a big jacket tossed over). It was fun to greet the students and have a short chat with them.
Then I came home and had Bible study with my friends, and now it’s time for bed!
And that was my Monday!
