Poem for Thursday and DC Museums

I am going to be boring and domestic the rest of this week, sorry -- inevitable when the deck is being rebuilt and Adam has orthodontic and orthopedic corrections to be made. Most of my afternoon was devoted to the latter: we went to the podiatrist to pick up the orthotic inserts, then went to the specialty sports shoe store to get properly fitted sneakers and running shoes for him to wear them in (luckily they had last year's models on sale, so he got his everyday shoes at a discount and I found a pair of cross-trainers for half price). The people who worked at RnJ seemed very knowledgeable and spent lots of time with us, so that was nice, though we didn't get home till it was getting dark and I had to take a quick walk.

Earlier in the day, I met Linda, my oldest friend (that is, friend of longest duration -- we've known each other since elementary school) for lunch at Benjarong, then briefly stopped at her house to visit her dogs and cat. Evening TV included Arrow, where I am hopelessly lost when it comes to the arc stories but as long as John Barrowman plays a major character I am not sure I care about things like plot, then Nashville, which had great music and lots of Rayna and Deacon and Juliette and Scarlett and Gunnar not too much Avery or Teddy so that's all to the good. Here are some photos from the National Gallery last weekend (plus a couple of the Archives and Natural History):
