Early Weekend Update: HOT!
I titled today's pic "Hot Overalls." Speaking of hot, it was 108 in my city today. I'm so ready for the heat to dissipate and for a nice arctic cold front to sweep in. Rain would be a refreshing change. It doesn't look as if there's any relief in sight, unfortunately.
Last night was the third of seven performances of Fiddler on the Roof that I blogged about earlier last week. Despite a pickup rehearsal, tonight's performance wasn't as polished as opening weekend, at least not in my opinion. Still we had an audience of over 200 so I can't complain much about that.
After the show, I met up with three ladies from the theater for drinks and munchies at a local restaurant chain. I had beer and sliders, which really hit the spot in my hungry tummy. There were four plus fries and string onions. Although I eat dinner before going to the theater, this show makes me hungry. It's probably psychological; I'm doing physical work and my body thinks it needs fuel.
When I got home - after midnight - technically this morning - I decided to do a load of laundry. We're all urged to use major appliances after 6pm so the power grid doesn't go kaput. I thought this was a good idea - I get a much needed task accomplished AND I do it at a time when most people are asleep and not using power. It also gives me a jump on my chores for the weekend. We have a Saturday performance and a Sunday matinee so my time is limited. Naps are definitely required during the run of a show.
I'm looking forward to October; I plan to take some time off work. I haven't completely decided what I'll be doing but I'm considering flying up to SF to visit the Bear. BTW....they had a nice 64-degree day today. Or yesterday, rather. Sounds like a really nice change.
I won't see my folks this weekend; today they're on a senior citizen trip and tomorrow my mom planned something with my sister. She knows I have the matinee and she figures I'll need the time to relax and finish chores. She figured right.
That's about all I have for now. As soon as the washer is done and I get the laundry in the dryer I'll be hitting the sheets.
I hope everyone is well, staying cool, and able to find some relaxation this weekend.
