"Oh no," you moan. "There she goes again."
You're right, but it's not for fun this time. I'll be out tomorrow and Monday taking care of my back. All should be right in my world... or at least my blogosphere by Tuesday.
Last Friday, I went to the new gallery, Bermudez Projects in Los Angeles to see John Rabe's "The Vast Wasteland Project." I toted mom along and she quite enjoyed perusing Rabe's collection of photos of abandoned television sets. His work is quite good and worth the drive.
We had dinner in the Chinese restaurant next door, where the chef told us he cooks "homestyle." We ate egg flower soup, cashew chicken and shrimp fried rice and loved it all. There was also plenty to take home for another meal, which we enjoyed Saturday, along with some fresh pineapple and a crusty loaf of garlic bread.
Sunday mom and I met our friends Linda and Veronica at the Crossroads Renaissance Faire in Corona. It's smaller than the Irwindale event, but still boasts a battle and joust. We caught several of the shows, sipped mead, cider and slushes and shopped. It was a very nice day.
This week has been interview central for me. Monday, I went to Pasadena to learn about a lady's bathroom, which has been totally tiled with antique tiles. I also have had phone interviews each day- Ryan Key of Yellowcard, jazz bassist Michael Haggins, Ben Zhu of Nucleus Gallery in Alhambra about its upcoming Harry Potter tribute show, artist Terry Beland about her upcoming showing at Colonnade Gallery in Pasadena and today I have Green Children, David Cimini & Glen Glenn and Drake Bell on my calendar.
Next week will be full of rest and write.
In rotation this week: The Offspring, The Randies, Orange Sky and a little bit of a lot of other things.
Photos we got 'em: Just a few pet pics off the Web that amused me- Enjoy!
Thought o' the Week: Prepare. Yes, that's been big on my mind. I will be limited as to what I can do for the next week, so I've been doing all my errands and little jobs. I cleaned house, did laundry, shopped for groceries and other necessary items. Last night, I made a neat, folded pile of pajamas for four days and sorted my pills into cups labeled with when I needed to take them and left everything at easy reach. This morning I made some Kool-aid and put away my dishes.
I want to have as little fuss as possible over the next few days and I think I have everything done now. I have friends coming over to help me with lunch and my mom is next door, so I should be OK, but there will be times when I'll need to do things for myself. And thank goodness, I only have to be quiet for a few days- I know I'm going to be stir-crazy by day two!!
But I have also piled books by my bed and charged up my iPod. I think I'll be able to make it through.... lol! So yes, whether it's for a natural disaster or a little burp in your routine, it's always good to prepare~ it makes everything less stressful! Wish me well and
Keep on rockin'
