A diversion

It’s been hot here for a few days, the kind of heat that induces lethargy. Fortunately I haven’t had much wish to be active, so I’ve spent two pleasant days doing essentially nothing but lazing about (though I did get out to Venice for a two-hour dance class last night, so I’m not completely indolent). But this afternoon I hit my laziness wall, so after reading a little, and eating a little, and going out and running some errands (dry cleaning, post office, gas station), I got bored. But not enough to do any serious work. Sigh. The travails of summer vacation.

I resorted to making an avocado facial mask as a temporary diversion. It was certainly very calming (and weird) to lie down for ten minutes with mashed avocado all over my face.

Did it make my skin look any better? I don’t know. My skin is always pretty nice. Good genes. I always get some little zits when it’s really hot out and I have to keep wiping my face with my grubby hands (that’s why there’s some redness on my nose in the photo; it’s not avocado-related), but that’s about it. I don’t even get monthly breakouts like some girls do. So I don’t know if the avocado mask did anything, but at least it occupied me for fifteen minutes. And that’s not including the time I’ve used taking photos and writing this entry. So it wasn’t a total waste.

But now I’m bored again. Maybe… I should do some work… ?

And I’m out of peaches, you know. Otherwise I could eat one of those and be put to rights again.
