Newly Green Nessie
Now that you're all caught up on China, I'll fill you in on what's happened this week.
First of all -- jet lag. Ugh! I have been fighting it for two weeks now, first from flying in one direction and then the other. My body doesn't know which way is up. All I want is to be able to sleep through the night, and not wake up at 3:30 a.m. with my body on red alert because it thinks I've slept until practically noon.
Dave and I went to see "Dallas Buyers Club" on Sunday. I loved it. I thought Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both did outstanding jobs. Who knew Leto would make such a convincing drag queen?
Remember Sidewalk Nessie? While we were in China, someone decided to take some paint to her. Now she really stands out!
In other news, for reasons that I can't go into here, I am once again scheduling substitute teachers for the school where Dave and I work. (You may remember this was my job last year, before I went to work in the library full-time.) It's supposed to be a temporary arrangement, but we'll see! I can handle 1 1/2 jobs, plus take care of Dave and the house and the dog -- right?!
(All photos taken this week in Notting Hill, within a few blocks of our flat. The "LOVE" graphic in the top photo apparently comes from Love magazine -- which seems more about fashion than love.)
