Just impatient. I know I'm not alone.
This week I did have some serious fears about our stupid government. Same fears and yes, I know it's a million times better than what could have been - we got the best we could get with Biden and majority in the house and senate. But oh those majorities are slim and not perfect. The fact that last year, ALL the democrats voted yes on the first aid package, making Trump look good but mostly HELPING PEOPLE. Then this year ALL the republicans voted against the current aid package. Cruel and callous and sad.
Anyway. One foot in front of the other.
Caught this nice gathering on Monday during a morning break from school.
Monday's art was inspired by Kandinsky's color/circle study.
I can't wait for school to open up again.
Harper did a card for a friend in NYC.
She also got a delayed and fun valentine from Grace up north. Sweet!
On Tuesday it rained. Harper celebrated thusly.
Then the power went out* so we all sat on the big bed and watched it rain. Then I got the genius idea to see if power was out at the CVS down the street and if it was, would they have vaccine's going to waste and if so, could we get one?!?! Kurt leaped into action and into the car to find out. The power was indeed out! Yay! But this CVS wouldn't get vaccines for another couple of weeks. Boo! It was a great idea though.
*It has rained, what? TWICE in the last 3 months? Then it rains for only about an hour and not really that hard and the power goes out. Shaking my head.
Later in the week Harper got new socks. She likes them a lot.
Friday night we had a friend over for social distant dining alfresco. I made Plate Lunch dinner (shoyu chicken, mac salad, rice and broccoli). It was YUM. And so nice to have a little company.
Yesterday (Saturday) we went on a long walk/urban hike along the bluff above Playa Vista. There was much grumbling at the start, but we made through 3.5 miles with help from shade, some snacks and the distraction of finding two geocaches.
We walked beneath the LMU letters - a vantage point I'd never had in college when Playa Vista was Hughes Aircraft and mostly dusty fields.
Bird's Eye view:
We neared the end of our walk and found these fabulous structures.
Then Harper got to play on a playground for a while - something we've not been doing lately. She loved it.
Being in this new (to us) park area was a breath of fresh air. It made me so excited about going to new places again, traveling to the Pacific Northwest and scouting potential neighborhoods to live in, finding parks to play in, all of it. I can not wait.
