well maybe I'll just go for a solid blue... thanks for all the input, and man was I set on the striped shirt to wear to work at the water park with my new black tennis shoes ( oh yeah still need to post 'em).
back to class tomorrow morning. was off ALL DAY today.... sigh, so nice. although being single and living alone, it can sometimes be like , ok what am I going to do before going to the gym at 430... and then ok, what am I going to do after gym and before bed. ha - but today was good, I was out in the yard for most of it, cleaning off what used to be a flagstone patio in the back yard and moving a table and chairs onto it, putting things away and sweeping up, watering stuff blah blah.oh yeah and finished washing all the siding around my house with a ladder. then I hosed down and cleaned up the ladder ( I remembered I need to return it to my dad after a year or more borrowed, oops).
My summer class had a good mix, couple of just out of highschool kids, 3 black students, 4 asian, and one East Indian which I think I taught one her older siblings when I was at her high school.
well anyway, there is a single mom and then a rare mix of city kids and just moved to okc kids and such. I'm ready to get through 3 chapters tomorrow, have them do some group acivities, and assign some brainstorming and a rough draft for next Monday. whoosh!
taking a shower tonight I couldn't help thinking about what kind of poem could I write about the hand made soap I bought at the arts festival. It has coffee grounds in it. Some sort of poem about that and the round soap on a roap made with olive oil that I bought in Turkey. They're both favorites. ALthough I'd recommend the good ole Bee and Flower sandalwood soap from the asian grocery store any day, nothing better. ( well other than dr. bronners liquid soap, lavender scent or tea. In fact I used some last bit of that in the bucket to clean the house today...)
Now might be a good shower tip time for guys who don't know how to rid themselves of the breakout on their back and shoulders. DON'T USE SUCH HOT WATER in the shower and don't stand with it falling on your back and shoulders the whole time you're in there. It dries out the skin terribly thus producing more oil and causing you to break out. It's summer anyway, go for a less hot or luke warmer temp, and then move around a bit or step forward a bit while showering and washing up. Anyone know the actor Ben Miles? I was watching a British series on youtube and couldn't figure out how I knew one of the actors, then I researched and found out why, he was the guy in Coupling, the original "Friends" tv show from UK. I liked his character on there known for being "hung". ha ha. anyway, if I ever met the guy in Britain I'd be all eyes and ears with my best smile on. :) hope all are enjoying the week.
