We got organized early on Thursday to go to the awards ceremony at Adam's high school, where he was being honored for photography prizes he had won during the school year. It's always a bit too long for the hour and at the same time they don't seem to be putting enough emphasis on the arts -- they didn't even invite the kids to the stage, just had them stand up -- but it's a happy occasion, so that was nice. Then I came home to try to get work and chores done early in the afternoon, because Adam had a track meet right after school, followed by a rush to eat something, walk the dog, get dressed up, and go to his senior banquet, which apparently had suitable vegetarian food though they went out for ice cream afterward anyway.

I went for a walk and saw bunnies, ate Paul's awesome feta cheese frittata for dinner, and caught up on Wednesday's Nashville where everyone is psychologically twelve years old, even younger than the characters on Dallas, but then someone will sing something I like and I will ignore the scripts. Then we watched Elementary, which is doing an arc that I am really enjoying -- for a few minutes I was afraid we were going to get a damsel in distress scenario, though it isn't as though Sherlock didn't damsel-in-distress John, but it ended up being a lot more complicated and interesting than that, though I missed a few minutes while talking to my sister.
