I’m having a pleasant enough Saturday, despite missing Rand, who is entertaining the masses at DucKon.
I got up WAY too early this morning (after attending the Guitar Concerto Competition finals last night at Kleinhans, courtesy of Jen; more on that later) to go to yoga class, because I missed Thursday’s session. (I’d have contemplated just skipping it, but I missed a class during the move that I never made up. I was willing to let one go, but not two!) The Saturday morning class starts at (sigh) 8. But of course, once I got there, I was very glad to be there.
Made a quick Wegmans run to pick up a few essentials, then puttered around the house a bit before taking a shower and trying to get in touch with my little. We’d made a tentative plan to get together today, and I’d told her to call me yesterday after school. She didn’t, so I called and left her a message to give me a call back. She didn’t. So I tried again today, and still no dice. Ah well. She’s 17 now, and terribly hard to pin down!
I ran by the jeweler, who had wanted to do some repair work on my engagement ring. I had to leave it–sniff! I feel so naked! It’ll be done within the week. Definitely by Saturday, maybe sooner. That seems like an eternity right now, though.
I then headed out for a bit of pampering. I went out to Niagara Falls Boulevard to check out a nail salon I’d heard about. It was a very pleasant experience all around, but driving on Niagara Falls Boulevard was not. Ugh.
Stopped at Lowe’s to pick up some new cabinet fixtures for the bathroom. I’ll post some before and after pics for your amusement.
Then I ran by the library, because I wanted to get some books. Yeah, I am in possession of books that have not been read yet, but I wanted *different* books. Much to my dismay, I learned that my local branch is closed on Saturdays for the summer. Boo.
Thought about going to the art festival, but with Rand out of town, my little not responding, and Jen otherwise occupied today…well, I dunno. I don’t know if I want to go badly enough to go alone!
And finally, I am, like many others, saddened by the passing of Tim Russert. I have no profound words, just to say that it is a tragic loss, and he will be missed by many.
That’s about it for me. Hope you’re having a pleasant day!
