Friday was a work from home day so it was nice not to worry about getting everything together and rushing out the door. That has been one of the benefits of Covid for some of us - the ability to work from home at times.
Friday night was Mark's night to stay with his mom. It was COLD over the weekend and Harvey and I snuggled up while I studied. I've done well on the three "essays" we've had to write but I am really nervous about the first exam which is this weekend. I'm afraid my brain is too old to retain 3 chapters of dates and names and vocabulary words. I'm going to start saying, "I think I can. I think I can."
We hosted our supper club on Saturday evening. These people are family to us. One couple had to stay home waiting on covid test results and they were missed.
The Lyric is directly across from the Alabama Theater where Mark and I went to see Christmas Vacation back in December. Both theaters have been restored and are beautiful.
We went to see Three on a String and the Dill Pickers. When I was young and single, I would go to the Lowenbrau Haus to hear Three on a String and when I had my "mid life crisis" which included buying a guitar and taking lessons (no, I can't play), I actually took from a guy who was a member of Three on a String at one time. The Dill Pickers -- let's see, one of them is a neighbor and in our Sunday School class and church. One of them used to be our neighbor. One of them is the father of one of our daughter's college roommates. My boss's father-in-law sang with them at one time. Three on a String music is not Mark's favorite music but I had a wonderful time and he was a good sport to sit through 2 1/2 hours with me. There was comedy sprinkled all through the show and Mark did enjoy that part.

It was a sold out show so we
wore our masks.

We saw lots of folks we know from church and walked towards our car with some folks we haven't seen in a while.
The icing on a perfect day was seeing this sunset as we drove home. This is not a fancy picture - it was taken through the car window but the sky was on fire and it was gorgeous.
