So after all my complaining about the rain yesterday, would you believe that it didn't rain at all today?
I was anxious to get out and enjoy this new found beautiful weather, but I had to wait around on the cable guy, our sofa delivery man, and my Portuguese lesson. Well, of course the cable guys and the sofa all arrive during the only 1 hour of my day that is planned and inturrupted my lesson. But, by noon I was free! (Oh, and I am proud to report that we are no longer stealing, well actually I prefer "borrowing", a random un-password protected wireless network anymore-one perk of living in a highly populated area. But we now have our very own high speed internet bill and cable television. Woohoo!)
I needed to handle a few household duties, so I did that first. Then I had a manicure/pedicure appointment at 4:00 (Have you noticed a lack of blogging about this activity? Would you believe I haven't had one since we got back January 4? Yes, I was waaaaay overdue. The weekly ritual is back on now though! Especially since my new place only charges US$6.67!) On my walk home from the salon the thin layer of clouds that had been hanging around all day broke free and the sun was shining through a clear blue sky. I rushed home, being careful not to stump my toe or something and ruin my new pedicure, changed into my swimsuit, put on a cover-up (because really I should have been going to workout not layout), and took myself and my snazzy new nails across the street to the club to layout by the pool and start reading a new book. The clouds came and went for the next hour and a half, but it felt good to be outside and not get rained on. It was sometime during my lounging that I remembered just how great I've got it and ah, yes, this is paradise!
