Poem for Friday and Arctic Animals

Collapse )

I was having a boring morning when my mother called and said she had been at the Strathmore Museum Shop Around, at which about 20 local museum shops sell crafts, jewelry, clothing, books, CDs, games, artwork, and unusual gifts. So I asked if I could meet her there, and we ended up having lunch at their little cafe (excellent butternut squash soup) and visiting the shops set up around the mansion, which include the Audubon Sanctuary, National Geographic, the Kennedy Center, the National Archives, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Shakespeare Theatre -- the latter of which had coin purses and bags made from costume shop scraps. I didn't actually buy much (my mother got me a deck of pirate playing cards) but it was a lot of fun to look!

I had expected Adam to be late coming home because he had a math make-up test, but that got postponed until Friday, so he and I actually arrived at nearly the same time and we fed the cats together. Daniel stayed late for robotics. After dinner -- veggie masala -- we watched $%&! My Dad Says, which finally made up for its ongoing gay jokes by having Shatner's character tell his military buddies in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't tolerate gay-bashing, and Nikita finally gave Jaden a real story arc, which makes me very happy in an episode that's otherwise very Nikita/Michael-focused (not that I object to that, just that the women on the show interest me a thousand times more than the men do).
