Occasionally, I’ll share something that occurred that day that signals a Renaissance moment for me.
Standing Before My SMART watch says so
Hubby and I went to the nail salon this morning
The day got off to a poor start because I wasn’t ready at 10 a.m. like I said I’d be. It was more like 10:10 and a certain someone who was in the army never lets me and his daughters forget how we would’ve been punished for being late in the military.
I was getting my biweekly manicure, and he was getting his bi-annual pedicure. He usually takes care of the man-things himself, but at least twice a year he will joke that his feet are “cutting up the sheets” and it’s time for a professional. On our initial visit I pointed out a woman who is good, and he’s been going to her ever since. There is no way a guy is touching his feet.
Hubby got through first, and I told him to leave me, and I’d call him when I was ready. After nails, I go next door to an esthetician and it was going to be a while.
All the way home I wondered what I’d eat. I hadn’t had breakfast before I left, and it was almost 12:00pm. Now that we were in the driveway, I’d have whatever I could find inside. I yelped as he threw out a half-eaten grilled cheese sandwich, but he turned around with two big hamburger patties in his hands. Hamburgers with all the trimmings—lettuce, tomato, AND grilled onion—would be nice. I could wait.
I should’ve made a salad, but the potato chip he was eating winked at me, and I was a goner (trying a little Pat Garcia here). If you’ve read Pat, you know she is deft at descriptive prose.
I read through the posts of my fellow 30-Day Bloggers and made several comments. I spent too much time over on the other blogs. Their posts were so heartfelt, compelling, and funny; and their readers’ comments were spot on.
Some of the most humorist have been my fellows in this contest, i.e. @WatchNonnie Write and and Maura Beth Brennan @SerendipityHappens .

See you tomorrow with a new view on the day.
