Lovely Summer Sunday
Today was truly a Summer's Day...we've been waiting for weather
like this for weeks, and if tomorrow it's back to cool grey skies,
no worries, because today was glorious.
After a morning of work at the clinic I rushed home to
change and head out to the ballpark to watch my favourite ball team
for their end of season tournament game.
I arrived there in the 5th inning of the final game for the championship
It was intense
Bottom of the 7th, they need three runs to win,
and it's my daughter Katie up to bat, one on first, one on second.
No pressure I tell her!
I can barely watch!
It's now two balls, two strikes!
Now we have bases loaded.
Next up to bat.
They catch him out!
So, it's second place for Scared Hitless, but what game it was!
Well done gang!
To end off the day it's a round of drinks in the beer garden;
soaking up the last rays of the day.
Time to head home and prepare dinner,
Easy, peasy - Vij's Caramelized Onion, Ginger and Lamb Curry
Dinner on the couch with a chilled glass of Kim Crawford and my
favourite movie 'Moulin Rouge'
I love Ewan McGregor!
I can listen to him sing 'Your Song' over and over again.
After the movie finished I sat thinking about Elton John and of the times
years ago J. and I would drive down to Bournemouth in her Morris Minor
to see Elton and Bernie Taupin in concert.
He was awesome. Just him and his piano, Bernie on the drums.
No gimmicks, no props.
I chose the Blog photo as a tribute to Elton and to say thanks
for so many wonderful songs that have so many wonderful meanings for me.
I was going to post a photo of Ewan for the blog header,
but I'll keep that for my diary. Yup ... some of us never grow up!
Here's Ewan . . . don't you just love him too!
love from Victoria
