- City employees planting coleus and begonies in beds at the foot of some city trees. I was so busy examining the plants that I walked right past my destination, had to double back.
- On public transit 3 times; each time I saw more law enforcement personnel in mostly casual clothing (e.g., T-shirts or polo shirts with the logo of their unit) wearing badges with a black band. Turned out there was a memorial service downtown for National Police Week.
- The usual array of characters - folks in T-shirts and shorts, or business suits, parents with kids of various ages, and the crazy lady (me!) juggling a tote bag (purse, book & water bottle), shopping bag, and bakery box with the results of my cooking class. Yes, the baked goods arrived safely home. :)
The pie class was so much fun! Only 6 of us, and everyone had good questions so I learned a lot. We also learned from seeing how the chef-instructor finessed an "oops" (the crust & ganache for the black-bottom banana cream pie took a header out of the freezer). The resulting black-bottom banana pudding was delicious! I like people-watching at that store - they get yuppies, military types, younger people, retirees (like me!), people who know exactly what they want, don't have a clue, or just want to browse the "toy store".
I got my hair cut quite short - a "summer cut". It's the shortest I've worn it since, I think, my senior year in high school, short enough that it'll take a little getting used to, but I love it - so easy to take care of, and so cool!
The "Mattress" read-through was fun. Only had about half the cast, but we got thru most of the dialogue & music to get a feel for the show. This is gonna be fun!
