I'm tickled by the nearness of last names in the paired artist, Saana Wang, whose bed you see here, and window below. I paired them when I saw the photo of the little girl with white "doll" face; it strikes with and against "Hinamatsuri (The Doll's Festival)" like a sad gong.
Yesterday my husband pulled into the driveway, had a quick lunch, and was headed back to work when he saw the flat tire. Jacked up the car to relieve the burden on the wheel, took my car back to work, and attempted the repair later. Tire was shot. We were so lucky it didn't blow on the road to or from Chicago! So lucky it didn't spoil the day of college-campus and zoo visits! So lucky it didn't make us late for the surprise party! So lucky it didn't inconvenience the friends with whom we were staying. So lucky!
So on this hump of the week, we'll get a new tire.
My doctor will probably look at it and say, "You do realize that coffee and wine don't really have that much nutritional value?"
Food diary thus far today: coffee, nectarine.
