A perfect routine

We have been watching this dance routine endlessly. Mama and I can’t get enough of Charity & Andres on NBC’s “World of Dance.” We didn’t know bodies could move like that, and we are blown away by the heart, soul, creativity, precision, power, strength, and musicality of these young dancers. They choreographed this beautiful piece,…

Sweet pictures from Mama

My migraine still wouldn’t quit today, so Mama took pictures of the flowers in our garden. She sent them to me in an email, telling me she hoped I felt better. It was especially sweet, because our Morning Glory FINALLY bloomed! But I couldn’t go outside to see it because the light was too painful.…

Ready for the sequel

After our exciting week, today was a happily horizontal day in our home. Plus, I’m pretty wiped out from yesterday’s treatment. This afternoon, Mama and I re-watched the movie “Mamma Mia!” We had seen it together in the theater when it was first released. We also enjoyed the musical together on Broadway about 15 years…

The pale, juicy fruit seems to be available for only a week, and they sell out even faster. When I called our local TJ’s today and learned that they’d just…

Nighttime watering

Day 178 of…

Angels in our adventures

Mama and I went on an adventure to San Francisco today, because we wanted to see the Rube Goldberg exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. We’ve been looking forward to this day trip for weeks, though we nearly had to postpone, as I wasn’t feeling well last night. Having grown up learning about Rube Goldberg’s…
