Museum Day!

So rare for me but yesterday I got to enjoy an “adult” breakfast. That meant no kids and adult conversation. What a treat! I met up with some friends and then after breakfast we headed over to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). There, we feasted our eyes on contemporary art and also a special exhibit on Japanese art from 1615-1868. It was a beautiful day with blue skies and no smog! A rarity for sure!. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I did not get a lot of reading done since I was gone most of the day but I did manage to read a chapter or two of The Lace Reader. I am loving this book! I will post the review here when I am finished but it may take me awhile. I am savoring every word right now and don’t want it to end.

School starts this week for the kids. I know… so soon! I have a kindie meeting tonight with the teacher and then the next couple of days will be spent getting used to the schedule. I have two kids in school now so I will have to iron out the schedule as far as”making lunches, laying out clothes”, etc. It’s a lot for one person to remember so I am going to share my expectations with my husband so he is well aware of what I need in the way of help.

The beginning of school is always exciting but also a bit of work. I’d love to be able to take the week off so I could prepare for it but that’s a dream for sure. Wish us luck!
