Last week was a short week and it was glorious. Two days of work and the rest reserved for play. That’s how it should always be. We hit the beach, we visited the LA Arboretum and we managed to see Beauty and the Beast.
Everything is so green right now and the weather was perfect! I mean, on a day like that, how can you stay indoors?
Oh, much of the same going on today as on most Sundays except The Walking Dead is over so my evenings are free now. What shall I do with the 9 o’clock hour?
Sometime this week I have to make two appointments I’ve been dreading. A consult for braces (the girl) and a booster shot appointment for The Otter Pup. She was due earlier but when the rabies is a three-year shot you tend to let the other stuff fall to the wayside. She is a few months past where she should be so that must be done.
Work? The same.
Rehearsals start-up again for Shrek and sign-ups for Grease take place Monday night. Yes. Two shows now, Shrek and Grease. Auditions for Grease haven’t happened yet but hopefully this time my daughter will get something. She tries really hard and practices plenty but I am not in the room with her so I haven’t a clue what is going on with her auditions.
I finished The Fall of Lisa Bellow and it was wonderful. I loved it. The review posts on Tuesday, I also finished The Things They Carried for book club. It was a good discussion.
I picked up The Barrowfields thinking it might take some time for me to get into the story but nope, I am already a good ways in. I really need to pick up the pace because I have a lot of review copies, which I try not to have all at once but so be it! It’s a nice problem to have.
Still watching Bates Motel and it’s fabulous. If you haven’t seen the series you really need to. SUCH good writing and if you think you know the story of Norman and his mother, you’d be wrong because this is not a retelling of Psycho.
This is sad but I am thinking of removing this category from this template because these days I really don’t make much. I am trying to eat clean and it’s not very fancy or exciting. I do like to hear about what you are all making though.
I got really depressed this week over the situation with my sister. It just hit me. Hard. I was so out of it that I wandered into a thrift store and just staggered around for awhile. For some reason that comforted me. I have no idea why! The thrift store has nothing to do with anything but it was quiet and empty and it was a good place for me to just unload (mentally). Mindlessly browsing with no purpose in mind. Actually, the thrift store is where my mother spent a lot of her time. Okay, that just hit me. I am going now.
What are you up to today? Cooking anything good? Any wonderful news to share?
