Up early, leaving D to try and sleep after a very bad night with allergies.
Together, later this morning, we finally got the Danish Oil on the unfinished table we bought in the going-out-of business sale from the unfinished furniture store, to use as our shared desk. Turned out better than expected. Dried several hours on the sunny balcony. Brought in table, and cleaned the winter off the balcony. Many errands run, groceries, fish & chips for lunch, seed scattered to lure birdies, heavy clothes thinned and packed away, summer clothes brought out and being washed.
Tried to find shorts, picked up some in my size that were not the abomination that is capri pants. Capris should only be worn by Audrey Hepburn, a young Mary Tyler Moore, or those who look like them. Anyone else just looks short and dumpy. And it seems, again, to be the horrid fashion of the season. So, I found what looked like a nice pair of a more typical short. Went to try them on, and got them to mid thigh. I figured they were mis-sized, which I mentioned to the sales clerk, saying I usually could fit a size smaller, but this size is more comfortable, but I could not even get them on. She said "I think those are "girls". The woman behind the door of the other changing stall laughed, then apologized. I told her "It IS funny, that's quite alright." Ah, well, at least I haven't gotten THAT large quite that fast. No new shorts for me today.
Moby got in on the idea of a good clean up. Much happier after a good brushing, thinned the undercoat. But it does require a thorough bath to follow.
One of those early spring days that demands the clearing away of detritus.
