The opening night performance went really well. I made an appearance at the party afterward, then came home. I think I was asleep by a little after one in the morning. At 2:30, I shot awake to the sound of the fire alarm going off. We all had to vacate the building. I blearily grabbed my phone, my purse and my laptop. I did the same thing when a fire alarm went off here a month ago. Yes, that’s twice during my stay. Oh, and let’s not count the alarm going off at home. I wrote about it in a post earlier this week. Fire trucks came to the house, fire trucks (3 of them) came to the hotel. Lots of firefighters carrying long hoses. Thankfully, all is well.
At the moment, I’m trying to come out of my stupor so that I can get a move on. Have to finish packing. Poor Don worked very late last night and has to come get me this morning. I’m sort of sad, leaving this suite….it’s been rather nice. No lawns to mow, dogs to attend to, cleaning to do, other needs to take into account. Just me, my laptop, some books to read, the occasional television program. It is a luxury that I don’t take for granted.
Nevertheless, I’m glad to be going home. My husband, doggies and garden await. I wonder if those peonies have started blooming?
