Strong lager and some early Zep tunes.
I ask thee, is there a better way to spend an evening?
Well, I wasn't drinking strong lager, and they weren't early Zep tunes, but I did spend a great Wednesday evening listening to rock and blues, watching the sun go down in Austin's Zilker Park with a few of my kids, plus about a zillion other people.
Blues on the Green is in its 23rd year, but this was my first taste of it. I've thought about going before, but it took Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears to get me to head downtown on a Wednesday night, battling Austin's rush hour traffic.
Spending time with my kids and my grandpuppy...watching the sun go down...listening to music outside on a summer evening...people-watching...it was a sweet! Wednesday night for sure.
And here are a few more sweet!s from the past week...
Tuesday: riding in a Suzuki Samurai on a summer night, windows down, breeze playing in your hair; helping your husband with a project
Wednesday: country roads decorated with wildflowers; mockingbirds singing to you; finally going to a Blues on the Green performance in Austin; seeing/hearing Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears perform "Sugarfoot" in person; an evening with 3/4 of your kids and your grandpuppy, and a hug from the other 1/4
Thursday: passes to a free screening of a movie; Mexican food, Mexican martinis, and a movie with a friend
Friday: drops of sunlight in a little creek; registering for real estate school; coupons for your prescriptions; hanging onto your patience when you have to call AT&T for the second time in a week to correct your statement
Saturday: eight hours of sleep; a not-too-busy, not-too-slow day at work; listening to 60's music while you work; your son home for a visit; even more bouquets of mountain pinks popping up everywhere; getting back on your sweet!-posting schedule; visiting your neighbor who brought you the textbook for your first real estate class, so you can get a headstart. (She teaches at the school!)
I hope your days are dotted with wild bouquets of sweet!s...share them here!
