It’s Early Spring Again
March 26, 2010 § 5 Comments
Last week’s beautiful and sunny 16 C (60 F) has fallen, with a vengeance, back to seasonal temperatures. *SIGH*
It dropped down to -15 C (5 F) last night and is not expected to make it above zero today. That’ll put a chill in your knickers for sure. Not to mention make the body ripe to catch whatever nasty viruses that are circulating. I’m so glad I hesitated when I thought of moving my clothes racks outside.
Other than that, things are going nicely. My shoulder is a world better and aside from an occassional twinge, I’ve regained full range and mobility. Thank God for small miracles.
Daughter starts a new class in a few weeks, Acting for T.V. and Film (following in Mom’s footsteps…too cool – let’s just hope she does more with it than I did – not that I didn’t love teaching) and she’s so keen.
It’s actually quite amazing to watch her perform. You would never really know she had it in her if you’d never seen her in action. Normally she comes across as being socially insecure and painfully shy and that wouldn’t necessarily be an inaccurate assessment.
But give her some lines to memorize, slap a costume or wig on her and boom she’s like Ethel Merman reborn…well, without the singing…that she’s still very shy about. Still, the first time I saw her on stage in a full production I hardly recognized my own flesh and blood.
There she stood so confident and self-assured, belting out her lines perfectly to the very back of the room. As her drama teacher I was impressed and even a little surprised (I honestly thought that despite how well she did in rehearsals that she’d choke come opening night – that’s not harsh, it’s reality because almost every kid I’ve ever taught did and only a handful didn’t), as her Mother I was as proud as punch and moved to tears.
Anyway, she’s excited and what’s more is that the timing and location of the class make it perfect for Hubby and I to have a date while she’s there. So, for the next three months we’ll have a regular, weekly date night.
Have a great weekend all!
