a fun-filled 24 hours

Yesterday brought all sorts of treats. First was the Farmers' Market, full of beautiful food, lovely flowers, all sorts of good things to eat. At 10:30 PDT the Met broadcast "Abduction from the Seraglio", one of Mozart's most popular operas. At 1 PM the Patient got home safely. Then the Derby, with triumph ~ rocket horse Big Brown ran away with the roses ~ and grief ~ the filly Eight Belles, who finished second, broke both her ankles and had to be destroyed on the spot. For dinner we fired up the grill and enjoyed the first sweet corn of the season and a bottle of Chilean wine the Patient had carted all the way home. (At the border, they confiscated two oranges; no fruits allowed!)

Today seems almost calm by comparison. I unpacked the suitcase I took to Italy and, lo and behold! there was the jewelry pouch I though was lost. Opened Christmas gifts from daughter Alex. Photos to follow when I get the battery charged! The Patient is out inspecting the acreage, broom in hand. This afternoon we are going up to the Apple Store to buy a new iMac desktop computer. 20" screen. I had a test drive on one and decided on the spot that I really don't need to buy a new car. Instead, a new computer ~ the laptop will travel ~ and a new bed. It might help my back. The bed, I mean.

If your Sunday is too calm, take a look at this amazing web site. Crank up the sound on your computer and enjoy!

Clever, yes, but gee . . . kinda violent. Or maybe it's just too early in the morning for this kind of thing. Glad The Patient is safely home! Nice to have you both back.
