We finished Shrek the Musical last weekend. It was a huge success. Right now we are enjoying a short break before Grease rehearsals start back up. It’s nice to come home and not have to be somewhere.
When the holiday falls on a Tuesday, it doesn’t make for much of a “holiday” weekend but hey, it’s still the weekend and I’ll take it. Not much going on today. My daughter and I need to go to the thrift store to get some pieces for her ensemble costume. The 50’s prom dress will be difficult.
I get July 4th off but no other days so I will be at work most of the week. Speaking of work, my cube is being remodeled and expanded (more space!) so I am in a temporary cube downstairs with all my stuff packed up. They tell me it will only be for a week or so.
Besides rehearsals not much else going on. We will most likely stay home on the 4th. The Otter Pup is not bad with fireworks if we are home with her but lately she is so terrified of weird things like house flies so yeah, we will have to stay home with her.
I’m still reading the same two books (Perennials and Do Not Be Alarmed) but I did finish The Gypsy Moth Summer.
My reading tastes are all over the place right now. I want riveting stories but for some odd reason I am wanting non-fiction reads too. So rare for me.
I recorded Stephen King’s The Mist but haven’t watched yet. Have you seen it yet?
With production week, I fell two episodes behind with Fear the Walking Dead. I hope to catch-up this week.
A movie that I haven’t seen in a really long time is The Big Chill. The Hub is like, “I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen it.” How can one forget such a stellar cast?? He’s seen it numerous times. Now I feel as if I need to buy a copy.
I made Pork Chops and scalloped potatoes. No applesauce although that would have been good given that The Girl got braces and is having a hard time eating.
I also made spaghetti and chili dogs and some tuna casserole thing that was a big bust. I made it gluten-free and it was okay but not something I’d make again. Of course I made enough to feed an entire country.
I am really happy that our little heat wave from last week is over, at least for now. We had 106+ temps for several days and I just do not feel human at any temp over 102.
What’s new with you? What movies have you seen? What books do I need to pick up right away?
