Have you eaten an eel today?

Today's yukata progress: I finished the okumi and the hem. Tomorrow I'll be ready to start the collar.

Adventure of the day: When I went grocery shopping, I stopped at the ATM to withdraw some money. However, the machine rejected my bankbook. Even after trying three times, it wouldn't work. Luckily, it was still business hours, so I waited in line for a teller, all the while imagining horrible scenarios of what might be wrong.

It turned out that the magnetic strip on the book had gone bad and needed to be recharged. It only took a few seconds to fix. <whew>

One added note: I wish it were possible to ride a bicycle sidesaddle. It takes all the fun out of wearing a skirt.

Update: Apparently today is Eat Eel for Stamina Day. The belief is that if you eat eel today, it will give you the energy not to succumb to the summer heat. (See what you miss out on when you're vegetarian?)
