I was working on my photographs in the computer room when I left to answer the telephone, and when I returned, I interupted Ava's bath time. Needless to say, I won't be leaving any liquids alone with Ava again!
Ginger and I went to see Bean in her musical on Thursday. It was delightful...what we saw of it! During the intermission I was called upon to help Bean because she had taken ill. It's scarey when someone comes to seek you out in that manner. She was okay, just got to feeling faint because of the heat. Disappointed, but okay. I, of cours, caring and compassionate person that I am, asked her if she was going to heave in my new car. She assured me she wasn't, and by the time we hit the highway, she and Ginger were laughing and enjoying the warm night with the roof in the new car open. She returned to the stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, all to standing ovations. Good Job, Bean!
We have these teasers for weather...57 degrees, and now...struggling to hit 30. I know, it is March, but COME ON. I want spring. I want the flowers, I want the trees budding. The first of the green leaves appearing. On Thomas Blvd. here, the magnolia's come out way before mine does, and I love it. Or maybe they are dogwood. Whatever, they are beautiful.
When I drive to work in the morning, I see the same man walking his dog. He is an older gentleman, and the dog looks to be older also. They are walking along, every morning, rains, snow, sleet. I worry about him because last year a man was shot in that same neighborhood, not two blocks from where he walks every day. Do you ever see people and wonder about them? I wonder if he has lived in that same area all his live. It used to be quite the neighborhood, but now there are shootings among some very old, grand homes. The shootings are not infrequent. I hope he is safe. I love to watch people walking on my way to work. There are the children, walking to school, with these enormous back packs that have to weight as much as they do. There are the teens, jokingly pushing each other at the bus stops. At least I think it is being done in jest.
People watching is a great pasttime. I like sitting in the food court at the mall for people watching...well, for eating too. There was an older man at a table with his grandson while the mother went to get the food. The grandfather was a bit cranky, no doubt because the little boy did not want to be there and he was cranky and hungry. The mother returned and pacified everyone with food.
We had dinner at the Speghetti Warehouse tonight to celebrate a birthday dinner. It was fun, something a little different for Sunday Dinner. The staff all came to sing Happy Birthday. It was embarassing, but fun. The kids enjoyed it. The dinner was good. Happy Sunday everyone!
