Poem for Monday and Emmitsburg Grotto

Collapse )

Sunday was another cool, gorgeous day. After a few morning chores, we drove to Thurmont to meet Paul's parents at Simply Asia, where I had excellent Kung Pao and General Tso's tofu. Then we went to the Grotto of Lourdes shrine at nearby Mount St. Mary's, which probably had more glorious fall color a couple of weeks ago but was still very pretty and it's always a good day when I get to drink from a holy water spring. When we drove back into Thurmont, we had Baskin Robbins with my in-laws before coming home.

We weren't very hungry for dinner -- eventually we had sandwiches, after I folded laundry and did thrilling things like that -- then we watched Batwoman and Supergirl on the CW's girl power night (the former still enjoyable though I'm already sick of Mouse, the latter finally giving us some decent Lena material although I wish they'd cut short this whole Evil Dictator storyline), followed by Madam Secretary, even more didactic than usual but I don't care, I love the show and the characters. John Oliver is the best craziness!
