Time to Breathe a Bit

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I had my Saturday class cancel. I would have slept in, but I have a dance rehearsal at 10am, an early hour for me to need to be coordinated. I’ll do my best.

This will be good for me. I will take time to smell the roses.

I will make a pot of tea and enjoy it slowly when I get home from rehearsal. Here’s a photo of a teapot I took at Bangkok House a month or so ago, to help you start relaxing along with me:

I will take a walk if it is not raining buckets. And I will continue to knit this project:

Yes, that would be socks made from two multicolored balls of yarn. If you read here much, you might guess who they are for. My toddler friend Isabel is growing out of her Chippy Socks and almost cried the other day because of that.

I do not have time to knit another eight socks in 3 colors of yarn. I do have time to make a pair of socks with pink/blue/gray toes/heels/ribbing, and pink/yellow/aqua foot and leg.

Yes, this is “too much pattern and color” for most adults. No, it’s not quite enough for my beloved Isabel. She’s the queen of “more color,” even more than I am.

I hope all of you have as good a day as I’m planning. Enjoy.

Orlando, FL Sushi Dinner (and more)

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Brian and I flew into Orlando on our way to visit family members in Florida. As is typical, we were hungry by the time we got off the plane and got our rental car.

Brian’s i-phone was a great help. He typed in Sushi and it knew where we were, and listed three or four sushi restaurants close to us. We found this one, whose name I’ve lost:

I can not tell you how pleased I am with the above photo. I love those chairs even if there is merely one, but the repetition makes my eyes smile.

Below, are two small photos which you can click to see a larger version. The first is a huge McDonald’s hamburger place, where the side of the building looks like huge two-story french fries. The second is the highway full of cars pretty much parked, at a standstill. This is not at all uncommon in Orlando.
