It’s pretty late so I’ll make this brief. I got up and did all of my exercises this morning. Breakfast was OJ, part of a large mango, and a smoothie of bananas and lots of romaine.
I had a pear for my mid-morning snack. I didn’t have time to go out to sun except at lunch. I sat on the steps to the CT scanner and ate so I could keep warm. It’s turned cool after all the hot weather we’ve had. Lunch was a banana/spinach/mango smoothie, cucumber, and my last two Campari tomatoes.
This is annual orientation time and my last session was immediately after lunch. I forgot that I’d scheduled a staff meeting at the same time so it was put on hold. We had a short ‘n sweet meeting after I got out of the inservice.
I had time to get the bare essentials done before I left an hour and a half early so I could get to my granddaughter’s recital. I had called my son and told him I’d meet them at the house and ride with them but there was a detour and it threw me far enough behind that I figured I wouldn’t be able to get to the house on time. I went to the store at the university and called him. It was a good thing because my DIL and granddaughter had gone on ahead and he was waiting for me. I sped on to the house and he took over the driving. We got there with 12 minutes to spare.
There were lots of students but none of them were better than my granddaughter. Some were more advanced but she played with confidence and flair and even saluted when her performance was over. The theme was patriotic and she played, with her teacher, “American Patrol”. Her great granny used to play that. She would have been proud. She crossed over her hands four times–I counted them. She looked really cute dressed as a sailor. There were several that dressed to match what they were playing. A Southern Belle played “Dixie”. “Yankee Doodle” had on a hat with feathers. It was a good program and lasted just about an hour.
My family stayed and visited but I hadn’t eaten since lunch so I came on to the house and dug into my stash of food. I had tomatoes with Tajin and then a huge salad with cashew dressing. I was still eating it when they got home.
We watched the rest of “American Inventor” together and now I am going to go to bed. I’m supposed to pick up the organic order tomorrow but I still haven’t found out when I’m supposed to be there.
