Tomorrow’s work scene!

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Look at this view…

I love the curve of the stairs against the blue sky.

Gorgeous, isn’t it? This was my office for the day yesterday. We had a personal meeting for work, and it was held in a beautiful location in Mill Valley in southern Marin County.

I had to give a presentation in the afternoon, and gasp! I actually did my hair and put on makeup, but because I was doing last minute preparations early in the morning, I forgot to take my pictures. *shrug*

The presentation was fine, by the way. It was interactive and my coworker and I used candy to bribe people to participate! Worked like a charm, so yes to Starburst and Hershey’s Kiss.

I have to admit, it was weird as hell to be in the same room with all those people on video calls for the past few months. The camera doesn’t really show you how tall or short people are, or how they walk and walk and sit. Even though the 2020 lockdown has been around for such a long time, I feel like I am still experiencing the effects of not being around people for the past few years.

Anyway, thanks for listening to me talk about the work.

On another note, El Hub dragged me and Connor to a sporting goods store last weekend, and while he spent a lot of time looking at fishing gear, I took pictures of everything on the shelves I had never seen before, like these individual pickles in a bag.

Um, am I the only person who didn’t know such a thing existed? What a time to live!

Other interesting thingsā€¦

Specially formulated powder to prevent sweat and friction on your bum.

I love how the cartoon monkey is wearing a single strand of pearls, LOL!

There were also things unusual for people, such as beer soap.

Oh, and do you know what Horehound hard candy tastes like? I do not know.

I have to admit that I was intrigued by this portable potty system for women. As a woman who always needs to use the bathroom at the most inappropriate times, this gadget fascinates me.

If you’ve really tried this and liked it, let me know! I will buy it if a friend vouchers for it.

This afternoon, I’m going to get a haircut. My last one was in August, and this mane is heavy, man! I’m still not sure what I’m going to do, but I’m going to take out some length, and maybe some longer bangs… I still don’t know. I’d probably end up with something shoulder length with layers. Long hair works for me, but when it’s as long as it is now, I think I look witchy, but not in a cool Stevie Nicks kind, ha ha.

Build Those Pleasure Muscles, Day Fifth

It’s been a few days since I checked in to my last happiness. For the fifth day, two things I’m grateful for are 1) the melodious sounds of birds outside my window in the morning (that’s a lovely alarm clock), and 2) homemade avocado sushi after a long day.
