Hi Folks ~ This will be relatively short as I’m not feeling good, sore throat and slightly nauseous. I only got about 4 hours sleep last night. Something is going around again and it’s nabbing me. Ugh!
My dear sister-in-law Sue and I had a great time together this past Wed. night. I had free tickets from the owners of the dogs I’m watching, while they are in Finland, to see, Cirque du Soleil: Varekai . We had suite seats which was GREAT. Little rooms with seating for maybe 20, a bathroom and like a bar area with warming trays for food. It was first come first serve for seats and we got two together right up by the glass partition. Both of us had vertigo at first, which went away after awhile. Here’s a pic of the two of us before the show started, which by the way was fantastic. The costumes, acrobatics, music and the male/female comedian duo was all wonderful, beautiful, funny. No flash allowed and lights were out for the show, so it was dark in our little space. They had some lights on in the auditorium so you could see where you were going.
Sue about had a heart attack because she thought the flash was off on her camera and lo and behold it wasn’t as you can see in this picture below. Needless to say, we did not take any more pictures after these two. The show ‘police’ did not come and throw us out, we were so relieved. I put a line around the stage.
Sue and I really enjoyed our time together talking, laughing, with a few tears, on our ride to and from the show. We grew closer. (She is the wife of my dear husband’s brother Todd, who has been a big help to me with projects since my husband went to his heavenly home. They live a little over an hour away from me.)
If any of you get the chance to see one of these shows, do so.
One more cactus bloom opened on my ‘jobsite’s’ cactus and I got a picture of it. These are only open for a short time during the night. This one was already closing up around 7 a.m.
Later on back at home while sitting in my little space here, a flash of movement caught my eye, and there was the Oriole again. How thrilling. I grabbed the camera but was only able to get one picture, through the window.
It is hot & humid with a big chance of rain later. I washed and hung out some laundry and hopefully will get it back in before the rains come. Have been watching ‘Danny’. He was a hurricane but now is just a tropical rainstorm. Phew!
That’s it for now. I feel dragged out. I’ll be glad when my time is up, the 31st is my last day, for taking care of Bella and Max. 36 days is a long time being responsible for someone else’s beloved pets. I need to mow one more time, do some pet bedding laundry, vacuum and mop the floor. The dogs are sweet and loveable so I can’t complain about them. Good dogs and I tell them so.
Have a great week and be well, be happy and be thankful.
