I had a nice time last night. First, dinner at the Grove Wine Bar. Can you believe that appetizer plate?! I had wine flight #1, bubblies from Italy & France. Monte had flight #8, Italian reds. The cappuccino afterwards was almost too pretty to drink, but I’m glad I did, it was one of the best I’ve had in a long time.
Then we headed to One World Theatre for the Diane Schuur concert, which was great. She played for about 2 hours… with someone on drums, sax and bass. She sang numbers from Duke Ellington, Chuck Mangione, Stevie Wonder, and Patsy Cline, to name a few, and ended with Amazing Grace, one of my favorites.
Keeto is about 8 months old. His flight feathers are in and he has mastered flying. He loves to sit on his perch in the window, which is about 2 feet away from a hummingbird feeder. When the hummingbirds fly up to the feeder, I don’t know who is more freaked out, the hummingbirds or Keeto. He also will fly between Monte and I when we are all sitting down to watch TV. He seems to be pretty house-trained. Good thing. …and he loves to give kisses.
Today is day 2 of an absolutely beautiful weekend. Monte has headed to the lake, and I am working. Ok. Well. I will be as soon as I post this.
We are looking forward to a fun evening at the One World Theatre. For Christmas, I gave monte tickets for 2 for the Diane Schuur concert this evening. I made him humongous paper tickets for the gift. The real tix are actually at will-call. But we’re bringing the home-made tickets with us to see if they’ll let us in with them anyway
