Quite a day yesterday. I met up with two internet friends - women I have known online since 1995. How odd it was to reminisce! So many shared memories even though we don't know each other in real life. It was a lot of fun. We went to the botanical garden, had lunch, and then went on a sailboat. I was pretty tired after this! Came home and watched my science shows, one about Africa and one about the building of the new World Trade Tower. Then there was a tremendous, and I do mean tremendous thunderstorm complete with hail! I will admit that was somewhat frightening - hailstones hitting the skylights right above my head was not the most pleasant thing I have experienced. And there was a horrible insect in my bed! That prevented me from really relaxing. Even after thoroughly inspecting the bed for wildlife, I was still creeped out. Still, I slept very well as usual, though I have been waking up somewhat groggy. Tonight is work, and I must have had enough time off because I am actually looking forward to it. I am so happy it is fall again and choir has started and soon there will be operas. Also I have a poetry workshop on Saturday and a library fund-raiser event on Saturday night.
Discovered a local breakfast/lunch place here has a gluten-free item on the menu - a veg pie (crustless) that is quite tasty. Accompanied by crudites and a fruit compote. Really nice. I am glad that I have a place I can eat if necessary.
