At Kathleen’s for dinner talking about hers and Caroline’s upcoming trip to Ireland. That’s Caroline and me with my photo-face which I wish I could manage every time.
Deep into summer fun.
I got a fan for where I am now to see how it did in 8′ ceilings and if it’s worth it for the front house. Oh yes it is worth it. Really worth it. The light looks bright in the picture but it can dim down to candle level too.
I also got this new shower head for the cramped little shower and it’s awesome in that the water pours down on the bather’s head and not into the room as the old one did.
We went on in hopes the Weisman Museum there would be open. But no. The museum was closed for staging a new exhibit.
We then went on to the track. But no. There was a big event using the whole field.
We then went to another area down the hill where Lill remembered a nice walk. But no. The whole place was torn up for a new building project.
We then went to the cafeteria back on campus. YES! Food did not turn her back on us and we enjoyed a yummy lunch in a delightful setting.
Despite our setbacks it did turn into a very lovely day.
…Union Station, and from here we wandered our way through downtown back to 7th for the ride home.
Luckily we got on the Expo Line at the beginning on the way out and on the way back because, even though we were far away from rush hours, it was crowded with people standing the entire time. Goodness!
More trains are due around the end of the year making a run every six minutes instead of the current twelve, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Wow.
out of order…
D&A had a date night on Saturday while the girls and I went to Akbar. Here are Lilly’s pictures including her three favorite things: mango lassi, note that hers is gone; samosas, I’m not eating samosas at this moment but I could have been; and the after-food anise seed sweet treat – good job Lilly!
Shadowland Foundation out by Lake Hughes. From their website:
“Only Shadowland Foundation offers a once-in-a-lifetime-experience for individuals, families, school groups, youth organizations, corporations, social clubs, etc. to meet and play with our pack of ten Alaskan Timber Wolves in California.”
I got my TSA-Pre/Global Entry certification today. It was so crazy easy, the biggest effort being getting in and out of the airport for the interview. Anyone who flies much might as well pony up. For me, it’s not the 20 minutes I’ll save maybe 2-3-4 times a year but more that any lessening of airport aggravation is a blessing.
And thanks to Windy for our healthy and happy morning!
