When I used to go to BJ's, if I went alone, I just took my sweet time. I would walk the aisles and pick up things as I went along that were on my list. If I went with my daughter, it was a nightmare. She was constantly dashing around the whole store with no plan or even a list at all. She would see something that caught her eye, and that would remind her of something else she wanted or needed. And off we would go. Her legs are a lot longer than mine and I was constantly running just to keep up.

Just this red-hot moment I'm basking in the warmth of the kind helpfulness of the DC family -- helping me to accomplish a photo post in another thread. Thank you all who offered help; and thank you others who I know would have if you'd known I was having trouble. Such good folks.

This morning I'm waiting to hear from the claims adjuster at 'his' insurance company re the fender-bender of last week; he backed into me. I sure hope they pay for repairs; my $500 deductible is $4 more than the $496 repair estimate.

I just curled my eyelashes. Lets see if this will helps keep my glasses from getting dirty so frequently. My eyelash curler has rhinestones. It's all they had at the pharmacy.

Haven't seen an eyelash curler so swanky! I have to curl my lashes too.

Perusing FB, found an idea for tamarind water. I had a whole box of the pods taking up space in the fridge, and figured why not try it.

It was really hard to see my eyelashes without my glasses, so I had to put the curler between my eye and the glasses. I'm not enjoying this.

They used to sell glasses with individual flip-up lenses for putting on makeup, wonder if they still have them.

Yesterday I flew a cancer patient and his wife from San Diego to UCLA for treatment. It was brutally hot, even at 4500 feet.
Today it is supposed to be 95 here in Ventura County!

But it's a dry heat, isn't it?
