It was another hot day today. I got started early on the laundry so I could get it all done before it got super hot. I was going to write about how I sat outside this morning, and realized I already wrote about that. deja vu.

Malida has some sort of a viral cold, so stayed home on the couch. I went out at about 11 and picked up some wor won ton soup for her. It is our go-to when we are feeling ill. I also did the grocery shopping. There weren't a lot of people out today. The air quality is bad, and by the time I got home I was somewhat congested.

In the afternoon I made a mental plan for the work I need to do on my doctoral project. This was much easier than actually doing the work itself. I am planning to throw myself into it on Monday, as it is a holiday.

I looked through the pictures from our Oregon trip for ones that would be appropriate to add to Tripadvisor reviews that I was writing. I was surprised by how many pictures of dessert I took, and how few I took of the places we stayed.

Today's picture is from the Japanese Gardens in Portland. It looks cool and refreshing.

I read some of the other reviews people had written--the bad ones. "It's just a garden, and you have to walk up a bunch of stairs to get there--total waste of money!"

One of my all-time favorite reviews was for Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, Canada. The reviewer allowed that it was a nice enough park, but was disappointed that he didn't see Queen Elizabeth hanging out there. In my review, I noted that we not only got to see her, but she grilled hot dogs for us.

People who criticize a garden for being a garden -_-

The photo is lovely--like a Japanese painting!
