This little sprig of alstroemeria broke off a newly purchased bouquet about three weeks ago. I didn’t want to toss them, so I put them in a wine glass. They’re still going strong. I have three bouquets in vases scattered around the apartment and this morning I found myself wondering if they would still be going strong when I have to move back home on Saturday. And then what will I do? Answer: take them home, of course.
I seem to be going through a bout of insomnia. I’ve been taking a nice hot bath, reading a bit in bed, and then…I’m awake for 3 or 4 hours. It’s maddening. Thankfully, I slept until 9 this morning, so I don’t feel as fried as I did yesterday. And yes, I heard my neighbor coming home, but I was already sleepless so I can’t blame it on her! It’s me, I fear.
I don’t have a lot of exciting news to share with you. My days are fairly full of rehearsals and performances. In fact, I have to make this rather short so that I have time to email my notes to the actors.
It’s sunny today – huzzah! – which always makes me happy. Don is protesting today at a NY State Senator’s office about the attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. And Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and several other notables are holding a mass rally at the Trump International Hotel in NYC on Thursday evening at 6:00. I’m not sure whether Don is going to that or not, but I passed the information on to him. I can’t march in the Women’s March, sadly, as I have to move home that day, but I know of so many women who are marching, either in Washington DC or in other cities across the country. Bravo! I’m with you in spirit.
Today: I’m watching the matinee at 2:00, then I’m coming back to the apartment, making dinner and settling down to watch Sherlock at 7 pm. To those of you who watch Sherlock: it’s on earlier this week because PBS is premiering Victoria at 9. Victoria doesn’t interest me. I know, I know, you think I’m crazy. But I’ve seen my fill of historical period costume dramas over the years (and remember, I work in a world that is full of sets and costumes and period details.) They just don’t interest me. As Don says: I don’t have any more rental space in my head for a new mini-series. I sort of feel the same way.
But I do plan on watching one of my all-time favorite movies on Monday night, It Happened One Night. I picked this up at Barnes & Noble a few weeks back. Don and I love this movie and I decided it should be in our personal library. Plus, after living in this space for a few weeks, I discovered there was a DVD player. (It’s so small and compact that I mistakenly thought it was a modem!) So I’m all set for my day off.
