Through the Looking Glass, sushi, and winter
Thursday morning left a lot of ice on the ground that made me wary, especially for Hoyt. What I didn't expect was the horrible trouble of getting back from work. Want to see me frustrated? Stick me in a car that can't drive through icy snow/slush and put it on a hill… yeah, I tried to avoid the highway, but let's just say the car decided it was a better route… sooo much stress… and yet another very good reason to not like driving. The list grows longer.
On Friday, I joined a friend to see the regional ballet's production of Through the Looking Glass. While the dancing itself was mediocre, the choreography, costumes, lighting, and lightness (no interpretive dance here, very literal – a welcome change) made the production very fun and entertaining. I would have to say just about every girl scout in the county was in attendance as well… very cute though! We both thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I was amused because the entire cast was female except for one guy who played the King of Hearts. And he did not have any ballet to perform. I would love to get into dance, especially ballet, though. I need something to keep me in shape! Besides, I used to be in dance and gymnastics a long time ago, I would like to get back into something engaging.
