Caused by the sunrise shining in.
This is the cat I see all the time at the pool who I've been calling David, and that's a spot where he's often found. The water fountain is just out of frame in front, and they keep a bowl of water up there for him.
But he's actually her. There was a woman reading her book just to the right of this water fountain, so I asked if she knew anything about the cat. Her name's Zoey, she's about 12 years old, and she lives at the swim center full time. She comes and goes as she pleases, and I think she's got a pretty sweet setup. The swim center is right in the center of a huge, awesome park and neighborhood, and she's got a huge, sunny place to hang around in when she wants to be inside. Pretty cool life.
Whenever I decide I need to cut my nails or get a haircut, it ends up being all I can think about until it actually happens. But I have somewhere to be this morning and didn't want to go to the barber shop, rush back for a shower, and then head down there, so I was just going to wait to get the haircut I decided I wanted before my vacation next week. Friday sounded good. So I took a shower, styled my hair with perhaps a bit too much product, and went about my morning.
A while ago, I ran my fingers through my hair, forgetting it was already done, and decided it really is too long and I can't take it any more. So I'm about to take another shower to wash all the stuff out, go to the barber, come home for another shower, and then head to the work thing I'm doing. Good thing the work thing is making me miss swimming this afternoon (I did yoga this morning instead) or else that'd be four showers today.
BBIAB wasting all the water.
I started doing yoga because my doctor suggested it for my lower back pain. There's definitely some progress there, and it always feels amazing the rest of the day if I've done some yoga in the morning. But I was a little worried when I started because the moves were very difficult on my feet. You know when you curl your toes and your foot seizes up? Laying the tops of your feet flat on the mat and putting tons of weight on them caused a very intense version of that.
But I kept up with it and it got easier, and now I find that my feet feel much better, generally speaking. Long distance walking was always hard on my feet. It was only back pain that could stop me from doing it, but I was putting up with a lot of foot pain, too. How cool that the dreaded yoga I didn't even want to try is helping with an issue I wasn't even trying to address.
That's my brother David on the left.
We'll be able to see them if they're in the living room, the kitchen, on
Garrett's bed, or in the lounge.
