I have not been on a bike since Nov 18, the date of my crash. I was nervous. I put it off all morning and finally forced myself to GO! in the early afternoon. After a few miles of wanting to turn around, I was able to stretch it to 15 miles. Getting back in the saddle after a crash is not easy.
At St Ignatius, you dress up as your career choice. Avery was a paleontologist and I’m sure his specialty would be finding dinosaur fossils. Sophia was a pop star. She told me a couple of other students came as singers. Just singers actually. A pop star is different. You have to have style and attitude to be a pop star.
After church, there was open house. But first a stop at the cousin Jeffery’s fundraising table – every 8th grader adopts a charity and raises money during the school year. Jeffery’s is the First Tee Program. Avery’s TK classroom.Sophia’s second grade classroom.Sophia’s 8th grade buddy is Desi, who is also a neighbor.
L-R: Mary, Chris, Greg, Phyllis. Greg and Chris are Phyl’s oldest sons.We parked in the RT employee parking lot – Chris and Mary work for RT. This was Phyl’s first time to use public transportation!We ate at Sauced – a fairly new and well-reviewed bbq restaurant very close to the Golden One Center (in background).It was so LOUD inside – but that’s probably an old person’s complaint.The food was excellent!This arrived at the table next to us. And then they asked waiter to cut it in half.Look who came over to our table? Justin was also there with a group of friends.The night’s winner, Jess Lockwood:Just 19 years old!A fun evening all around! Even without the fringe vest.
I started early in the day trying to finish this long vest to wear tonight. The faux suede wanted to curl at the edges so I had to pin every inch or so.I cut fringe for 4 hours which didn’t include breaks to rest my cutting hand, put bandaids on my fingers before blisters formed, eat lunch, etc. And I still didn’t finish in time.I like the way the ends curl up like a fiddlehead fern. Oh well, the purple jacket will have to do for tonight’s outing.
