Tabs and I just got back from our walk and WOW! — it’s hotter than hades out there. Not that I’m complaining. I’m glad it gets hot here. Mill Valley, the town we lived in before, was closer to San Francisco and the chilly marine layer. Summers only lasted about two seconds in the middle of September, so “YEA!” for being able to wear shorts and sundresses in June!
I don’t have much lined up for the rest of the afternoon, other than making that homemade ice cream I mentioned (the strawberries are macerating as we speak!) and giving myself an at-home pedi while we chat in the open thread. The Essie Pretty Edgy I’ve been wearing for two weeks is on its last legs.
In case you’re a new reader, here’s the scoop on the open thread: it’s basically unstructured time to chat about anything we like in the comments at the bottom of this post — food, clothes, books, movies, pets, relationships, whateva! Please feel free to pop in and out as much and as often as you like.
A few questions to start the party…
Do you like to do your own nails, or do you prefer to have them done at a salon?
I do like to treat myself to a professional mani/pedi every once in a while because it feels great and looks good, but I generally prefer to do my own. I’m really picky. Plus, my mom got a terrible infection once at a nail salon a few years back, and it traumatized me.
Can you parallel park?
Yes, ma’am! I got pretty good at it back when I lived in San Francisco, and at my prime I could do it on fairly steep hills (both facing up AND down the street). But I’m rusty now. Living out here in the burbs dulled my edge, LOL!
What’s your favorite thing about summer?
Besides the sun? I love the extra hours of daylight. Great for picture taking and walking cats.
See you in a few!
