Exhaustion and Children.

Guten abend, dear readers.

I realize that every night I talk about how tired I am to make excuses for laziness and poor writing, but tonight I’m actually totally wiped. I have no energy for humor or prolix writing.

This morning consisted of a few ‘education’ visits, some basic intake stuff, blood tests, an EKG and a chest x-ray. Not super intense, but I’d had to fast for the blood tests and I had a terriblesleep last night, so I was very woozy and miserable. Tomorrow I’ll probably be better able to appreciate the incredible array of art and architecture that is showcased in the various buildings. As it happened, I was still able to be moved by a particular piece of art. Which is strange, because I generally think that modern-ish sculpture stuff is repulsive and inaccessible, but this particular blob of pretty glass just spoke to me.

The Mona Lisa of Glass

This was created from fused and formed individual strands of coloured glass.

After the tests were all through, we wolfed down some some provisions and went promptly to sleep. This evening was truly spectacular though, I must say! After dinner we went to a nearby park, complete with a bridged river and replete with birds. We had a great time just standing on the bridge watching the animals frolic, and then noticed that a short distance away there were festivities. Turns out there was a women’s softball game going on, so we watched for a while and some adorable enterprising children sold us some pop that they were lugging around in a little wagon. One of the boys informed us that there was a kids’ track and field meet occurring on the other side of the athletic park, so Dad and I moseyed on down and witnessed adorable tiny humans run races and do long jump for at least half an hour. In between races, there was a tiny boy, way less than two, who I witnessed holding his mother’s cellphone to his face (upside down) and saying “Yo yo yo yo yo!” over and over. I kicked myself ten thousand times for not bringing my cellphone with me so that I could take pictures of all the children and puppies! There were so many puppies, too! Sweet jesus…I really am tired. This is some seriously lame blithering going on right here. Well, I’m supposed to write 1 blog post per day, there was NOTHING mentioned about the quality of the wordsmithmanship!

So birds. My lucky dad saw an American Goldfinch while I was napping! I personally witnessed the following: Bank Swallow; Chimney Swift; Robin; Barn Swallow; Black-Crowned Night Heron, and a weasel of some sort (yes, I realize that’s not a bird). It is now high time that I hit the sack and quit stringing phonemes together in an increasingly more horrifying fashion.
