Monday morning giggles

It's Monday morning and adding to the standard post-weekend can't-get-out-of-bed phenomenon I'm also sick, so biking to school wasn't the first on my wishlist of things to do. But being the good student that I am (;-)  I came anyway.

As fates would have it, I came across not one but two things that totally lifted my spirits. One was a pair of shoes on a lady. Pink high heels. Hot pink suede, that is. With a furry lavender fringe around the ankle! Other than that, I think she was dressed in a pretty conservative outfit. I whizzed past on my bike, so no time for a photo, but they were not dissimilar to this picture I found online, just shorter and brighter.

Once on campus,I was greeted by a pack of balloon poodles swaying in the breeze on the steps.

I hope these get your week off to a good start, too!

Yo-yo Weather

It has been RAINING here!

I really can hardly believe the amount of water that's been coming down from the sky in the past few weeks. It seemed miraculous if any building didn't spring at least a small leak.Yesterday was all warm and humid like a sauna, some people wore shorts! Today the rains have returned... dumdumDUM!

We splurged on a dehumidifier, owning which has somehow made me feel really grown up. ; 0 Nothing like acquiring appliances to give one a sense of dignity, I guess.

Well, it can't rain all the time. And on the plus side, it's making our back patio flourish.
