Earlier this morning I went out for a walk and I had to turn around a little early because I was worried about getting sunburned before 9 a.m. Even if I'd worn sunscreen it would have sweated off, I looked like I'd just run a 10K in the middle of the Sahara. The sun was already burning and baking the Valley, it's supposed to be over 100 degrees the rest of the week. Hopefully sweating is an appealing trait, look, I'm glossy!
As I walked back I noticed people arriving at a small coffee shop with a patio out on the boulevard. The smell of pee was already overwhelming. I don't see a lot of homeless people on that block but there must be at least one very avid outdoor potty spot nearby because that whole block always reeks. In the heat it was even worse. I was staring at the folks sitting out drinking coffee in the steaming urine aroma and I couldn't for the life of me figure how they could stand it. They stared back, wondering why I was dripping wet and exhausted.
Later today I'm going to dust off my treadmill, remove the items I've been storing on it (most expensive storage device ever!) and actually plug it in. I have lived in this building since September of 2009 and I have not even plugged in my treadmill. Awesome. Anyway, that's my plan for later. Summer is when I most want to visit someplace cold and snowy. Or watch movies about cold and snowy places while knitting things I could use there such as wool gloves.
