It’s hard to believe that it’s November! This gorgeous weather is fantastic. I hope it’s the harbinger of a mild winter; I’m just not ready for freezing cold weather this year. Anyway… I just realized that I never mentioned the show we saw on Sunday. How to Save the World…Â was really funny! For it being the second night of previews they had it together pretty well. There were a couple blips, and one of the actors was a little flat, overall it was great. Liberal, literary humor — what D. called “a real ‘New York’ show.” The theatre it’s in is pretty neat because it was formerly a movie theatre (that’s what it was when D. worked in Worldwide Plaza not all that long ago, actually!), so each theatre is now a stage and there are five shows going on at once. I love that idea! “Evil Dead: The Musical” is playing there as well, and call us crazy but we might go and see that too. I just have to see how they do it!
Prior to the show we had brunch at Joshua Tree over on Restaurant Row. D. had the breakfast burrito (he’s on a chorizo kick lately) and I had the Joshua Fritatta (eggs, artichokes, scallions, and potatoes topped with blue cheese). We ate and watched the winner of the New York Marathon cross the finish line (on TV), amazed that someone can run so far so fast! I always love going into the city and whenever we do we inevitably lament the fact that we never lived there when we could have. But you never know… Life’s a long time. Maybe someday we’ll sell everything and buy a small co-op. But still. It would have been cool to have done it in my 20s. Ah well.
I don’t even know what else went on this week. Just the same old stuff, I guess. Boys are good. J. I think has been overtired since the timechange. He’s waking up early and being a little mouthy. He slept in this morning, so hopefully that helped. N. is just… everywhere. Isn’t there this unwritten rule that if your first child is wild, you get a break with the next one? Yeah. No. Doesn’t happen. I think he might even be crazier than J. was at that age. Good thing he’s cute! He’s also starting to say words: Mama, Dadda, tea, hot, butter, water (“wawa”),Â and I know there’s one more but I can’t think of it right now. He certainly knows what he wants and he makes sure you know it, too. Oh, and I can’t sit on my rocker/recliner when he’s around. He pulls me off it and yells at me! I think we have a future director on our hands. Oh, and J. told me the other day that he wants to be a painter when he grows up. He wants to paint beautiful pictures for everyone, he said. Aww…. I knew I’d be raising some sensitive artistic types! 😉
What else… Knitting. I said screw it to the Feather & Fan Shawl. I picked it back up earlier this week and after a couple rows of fighting with the Lion Brand Homespun, I just wasn’t having it. I hate the yarn and I’m not going to knit something that I despise. So now, instead, I have a lovely seat cover. I have started the Irish Hiking Scarf and I’ve knit about seven inches. Who knew that cables were so easy? Seriously, they are just magical!
That’s about it, I guess. I am really loving the Regina Spektor CD I bought, by the way. It’s been ages since I found a new (or new-to-me) artist that really wow’ed me, but she is amazing! And cute! And the new G. Love is great, too. I’ve been playing it non-stop today. And in case you didn’t know, G. Love is also really cute. So let’s hear it for cute, talented musicians! Yay! (No surprise I married one, huh?) 😀
Have a fab weekend, peeps.
