Spring Lake*

While I was writing up my blip just now I got a notification about the progress of a package I ordered on June 15th. I was so excited to read what it said that I erased my entire blip just as I was about to press the publish button. I'm not going to rewrite the whole thing. I was just complaining anyway. Instead I am going to share the trajectory of my package with you. No wonder it has taken over ten days to get here...

This was one item out of four that I ordered from Nordstrom. Our nearest Nordstrom is about 35 miles away, but it is closed. Each of the four items came from a different store in a different part of the country. 

Not exactly an efficient use of fossil fuel. If I had known I would have gone without make-up until the local store opens. Instead of getting a haircut I watched an Australian guy give a gorgeous blonde model a haircut on YouTube. It gave me the courage to give John a trim....

*Taken while on a walk with Kathy this morning. I'm sure I've taken many pictures looking across the lake to the dam before, but it was looking particularly inviting this morning
