Alternator, schmalternator

Richard and Michael fixed my alternator! I even learned a thing or two. They wouldn’t take money and when I tried to take them out to lunch they ended up buying me lunch. They also gave me a ride to the Good Will and waited for me instead of just dropping me off at the local thrift store.

They don’t know it yet, but I snuck in a couple of pics of their adorable dog and I’m going to do a painting for them. I’m also going to get them a gift card to the place they eat all the time.

On the art front, I’ve been working on a couple of projects and not getting as far on either one as I would have liked. Starting tomorrow I’m implementing a new schedule and I’m making sure I won’t forget said schedule by putting about a thousand alarms on my phone.  I even forgot happy hour yoga on Friday until 2 hours after it was scheduled to begin. As Sharon rightly questioned, “How do you forget something you do every day?!”

I believe my new schedule will fall right in line with a new NerdFitness challenge.

I have a very big post about Apalach coming if my card reader ever arrives, but I wanted to give a shout out to some amazing soap. There is a soap store where I purchased some awesome soap last year, but I went into a different store for the first time a few weeks ago and became obsessed with Apalachicola Sea Clay Summer House, Handcrafted Natural Soaps. I don’t know how it feels, but it smells heavenly. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and finally broke down today. It is made with mint and spruce. I smell it and my eyes roll back in my head. I may moan inappropriately as well. If you want to check them out, their website is Although the site doesn’t have the Apalach soap, you can probably call River Lilly at 850.653.2600 and order some.  It’s a pretty cool store and everything is arranged by colors. It makes me very happy.

Oh, RV living is the life for me…..
