The Daily: August 31st, 2020

Afternoon all, I have to admit, today has been a pretty quiet day for me. I think doing a mid-day face mask tricked my brain into thinking that it was Friday and then I was suddenly disappointed it was Monday.

Its also kinda rainy and gunky outside. There was a short break in the weather where I decided to try and go for a walk. Unfortunately, the walking trail was completely underwater. I like the fact that Tennessee used a lot of the floodplain to build walking trails instead of letting people try to build houses on the land, but it does mean that when it rains, it floods.

In my neighborhood the houses are on a higher elevation and the trail leading into the park/walking trail descends into the trail. I reached the part where it starts to descent and instead of a trail I looked out and saw a lake. A lake with clouds of mosquitoes and a bunch of black snakes. I know black snakes aren’t poisonous, but there were a few copperheads mixed in and there were a lot of snakes. I don’t generally mind snakes when they are on their own, but this was a convention. Sure none of them were wearing Snake-con 2020 t-shirts, but I still don’t trust it.

I turned around and walked away.

Unfortunately the mosquitoes got me.

Then it rained again and I got soaked.

Yeah it was an ill fated exercise plan today. I’m now covered in calamine lotion and and decided today is just a watch the calories and make up for lack of exercise tomorrow sort of day. Mostly because I didn’t want to put ‘running from mosquitto cloud’ in my exercise entry.

On the plus side I got a package from Influenster in the mail today. They sent me the Dior Dream Skin Care and Protect to try out. So I’ll be giving that a try. While I just opened the box I have to say, the bottle is beautiful. I am a sucker for a good package. But you know me, I’ll still be honest about how the product performs once I open it and give it a try. I’ll be honest, I was eyeing this anyway so I’m thrilled to get a chance to try it out. I’ll be sure to let you know all the ins and outs.

That did make a dreary day seem just a little bit brighter.

Hope you are having a good monday and keeping your shoes dry. Mine are currently thumping in the dryer on a low heat setting. Fingers crossed the rain stops and the flood recedes tomorrow, otherwise it’s an extra round with the weights for me.
