And it fits so well with Willy Nilly Friday (five random thoughts)!
TWO: I biked to the market the other day and spotted this poster - I just love this aspect of summer - all kinds of special outdoor events are happening. At this venue, we've met some neat people (they were strangers and now they're not!) and spent a fun evening with friends. And we don't need a designated driver since it's within walking distance!
THREE: I think summer encourages trying out new recipes - exhibit A - potato waffle recipe I found on Pinterest -
FOUR: If you've been reading my blog, you know that our cat Josie is also called the Houdini cat. She is mischievous, to say the least. Also, for the last 12 years, she has never been a lap cat. So, just let me say - when she recently spent more than 30 minutes on the lap of the Spousal Unit, we just had to wonder what she's up to!
FIVE: our number one daughter (#1D) is currently completing a stage management internship with the California Shakespeare Company. The second production of the summer, Black Odyssey, opens this weekend. So, as with all stage productions, the last week before opening is a grueling technical week schedule during which all the final kinks are smoothed. It has become our tradition to provide #1D with a care package for tech week. I had so much fun shopping for items that are useful, not too heavy (she flies back to school soon), funny and (dare I say it?) whimsical. I think I hit the mark, don't you?
Polka dot socks - just because; Starbucks - lifeblood of any stage manager;
Sharpies - another staple for the organized stage manager;
Four magnets - SEEK, DARE, SOAR, ❤; Chocolate river rocks - can you see the fish hiding among them?
