I got medicine for my fish, who is sick, and I really think it's going to help him.
Also, I took my dogs (3 of them total) out on an off-leash walk in the riverbottom today (yes, the riverbottom, I live in a desert, it has been bone dry since before my birth, all it has now is dead plants, dirt, and coyotes). They hadn't been on a walk like this since we moved away from our old house (which was conveniently right next to it; now it's a 15-20 minute drive away). They had a lot of fun running around and made sure not to stray too far from me, which is good because I forgot to bring a whistle. My dad always used to take them for walks in the early morning on weekends before we moved out of our old house, and they loved it. But ever since we moved no one's taken them there. So by taking them I kinda felt like I was keeping the legacy alive. Kind of wanted to cry but not in a sad way. I think I will take them every weekend now that it's not triple digits every day.
mirror, mirror, what's behind you?
save me from the things i see
i can keep it from the world
why won't you let me hide from me?
On my drive home I was behind a student driver behind the wheel of a driving school car. She was asked to parallel park by the instructor, and she did everything by the book: she signaled her intent and, although a little slow at it, parallel-parked the car perfectly. I stopped as I drove by and gave her a thumbs-up for the good job, to which she smiled.
