The Big Top Spring Break plans had to be shelved…for obvious reasons…womp, womp. Bill is still waiting on his cardiologist to sign off on his disability insurance and, well, the savings for Spring Break Week in Monterey had to be redirected because clowns need to be fed and bills need to be paid.
Perhaps next year!
But, we are excellent punters…any family with more than 1-2 children is because it is part of basic family survival.
My darling husband is recuperating well but he is growing more restless and bored as each day goes by. His son in law comes over to mow the lawn. The wife is taking out the trash, along with everything else she juggles. He can’t vacuum. He can’t haul the laundry up and down the stairs or the groceries out of the mom car. He can’t walk the dog…no matter how much Betty begs. So he walks in the morning and the afternoon and the evening. And he putters around the Big Top feeling incredibly restless and bored.
A beach vacation would have been perfect right about now….yes.
Maybe a day in San Francisco is what we all need. Nothing ambitious…no big shopping trips or crossing bridges. Perhaps a day visiting a dear, old friend and lunch and some walks around a very small part of The City.
The most delicious, cup of Swiss chocolate made perfect while enjoying the company of a dear, old friend who made it for us.
Strolling through the Yerba Buena Gardens, enjoying the water falls…
and perhaps reflecting a little on the fail that is your Mima and Papa not having any spare change to toss into the fountain so that you can make a wish. Absolute fail!
A fail soon forgotten as you try to shake Shaking Man‘s hand(s).
Whatever the name, it is a good place to ride a dragon
or a beautiful, white horse.
Lunch followed up with a short walkabout around Union Square complete with an encounter with a Buddhist monk offering prayer beads for Hazel and me along with a blessing…for 20 bucks.
Hazel and I accepted the beads and the blessings giving 4 bucks because that was all that we had. The beads are cute though.
A good day…a great day…a day where perhaps Bill might have overdid it.
Looking at her, exhausted, he agrees that yes, he overdid it. But he smiles when he states this.
Tomorrow he rests,
He promises too.
