Met the Tai Chi in the Park group yesterday and had a wonderful surprise! Nina and I were eager to hear about the Hong Kong trip, but Beth and Thomas had more than just interesting experiences to share. A pashmina shawl from Beth - this is SO gorgeous, shimmers beautifully in the light. A calligraphy set from Thomas - complete with ink stick, ink stone, water dish and mixer, brushes, and brush rest! The day was dreary and rainy (we practice under a huge gazebo, so the rain wasn't a problem), but Nina and I were so excited over our gifts that the day brightened completely.
I'm sitting here now wrapped in my lovely shawl, drinking coffee, and wasting time. Need to get back to my JQ2006 since the deadline is approaching, and I have quite a bit left to do on it.
After Tai Chi yesterday, I came home and settled in to read. Such a perfect rainy day for reading, but after a short time, my dad called, and I went over there. Was supposed to be helping him fill out a medical history form for an appointment he has, but the first thing I did was put my own address. Duh. Big help.
Got home about 5:15 and waited for my DH who has been out of town for several days. He left again this morning, but it was nice having him home last night.
