Meanwhile, a week later…
This weekend, my internet has been acting quite temperamental. Perhaps it’s the heat, because there’s a lot of it.
So, a quick rundown of the past week and the bits of joy I picked up along the way:
Monday: Drove up to Fallbrook for an appointment with a potential house concert host for the Acoustic Duo. While it was hot, the drive was lovely and a nice variance to the routine.
Tuesday: the best part of the day was watching the All-Star game. Now, I’m not keeping track or anything, but someone from the Padres has had a hand in each of the last 3 years of National League losses! Oy! That’s not good, but you can’t beat watching the game’s very best in a baseball-centric town like St Louis or even get a little choked up at the reception Pujols got from the hometown crowd, or marvel at how cool Obama was to throw out the first pitch. Nice.
Wednesday: On Wednesdays, I take DK to church. It lasts from 7-8:30 pm so I use that 90 minutes to just hang out on my own rather than driving back & forth to home. I found this little random garden cafe, kind of just in this little courtyard between 2 office buildings. They serve coffee & soda. Last week, I went there and drank a Coke and read for a while.
Thursday: Han had a gig, but I chose to stay home because I had some work I needed to finish so the joy of that day was getting my work done.
Friday: Friday’s joy was an at-home date night with Han. We grilled steaks and had some cocktails, lounged in the air-conditioned room and were just mellow. Very nice.
Saturday: I was kind of worthless yesterday because of the multiple cocktails from the previous evening. I didn’t do much but watch movies, some new (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Tropic Thunder), some well-known and quite familiar (Enchanted, 27 Dresses). Our friend, Barbara, was over recording during the day and it’s always good to see her. She’ll be off to Austin in a few short weeks.
Sunday: Today’s joy so far is just getting stuff done. I went to the grocery store, planned the menu for the week, and I’m about to start some laundry and do dishes. Another friend of ours, Kristen, is also leaving town and her farewell party is this evening so we’ll stop by to give her our best and then plan to go see the new Harry Potter movie 🙂
And now here we are! Hope you’re having a fine Sunday!
