It looks so beautiful outside today! But, because it's hotter than the hinges of hell, I'm going to be observing life outside from the comfort of air, car, mall, coffee shop...all fair game. It's amazing that, after the huge snow dump we had in February, it's been consistently this warm.
I worked this show yesterday, (and it was fabulous - I always underestimate how much I love those tunes. The soprano called them "comfort food"...she's totally right.), and dodged in and out of the AC as must as I could, but was still a hot, sweaty mess come midnight. I missed GirlInVA's birthday soiree, because I just smelled WAY too funky to give anyone a hug.


Needless to say, I have new-found respect for those whose jobs keep them outside all the time...landscapers, road crews, construction workers. It's a hard row to hoe when it's this warm and humid, for sure.

Today is a day away from the office. (Yay!) To celebrate, I slept in until 9:00am, and made it to the gym for the first time in what seems like years. I was that crazy girl in kettlebell class, smiling every time it got more difficult, singing along to the music, quipping with the instructor. Yep, I was about as obnoxious as it gets. But it felt SO GOOD to get back into it! Chances are good that I'll not be able to climb stairs on Monday. (I'm ok with it.)And tomorrow is the Studio Scenes program. We're in the Barns for the first time, and the singers are singing their fool faces off. It's pretty awesome.

In other, non-related news, my pen-pal JG sent me a letter from Krakow. (By the way? I LOVE real letters. FB is great and all, but mail is awesome.) And it seems the mystery of my married name has been uncovered.

Evidently it means "Mushroom gravy."


(Actually, it means "hunter." I'm a little disappointed.)

Thanks for the present, JG! A letter will be winging its way to you shortly!

My five:
  1. Air conditioning.
  2. Exercise.
  3. Long-distance correspondence.
  4. Unstructured days.
  5. Honest fatigue.
