oh this weekend. I lost my weekend to a movie and music. and it was amazing. so earlier this week my youngest says mum, what are you doing on Friday night? and i said coming home after work and collapsing. She says… well I have tickets for the Cleveland Playhouse Square to see The Fugitive with Harrison Ford, you want to go??? and of course i said YES!!!!! so after work we got into the car, headed north, stopped at Chick-fil-A on the way for dinner, parked the car, and then walked in. of course Hamilton was playing but we couldn’t do the $250/ticket. So we went to our theatre to see the movie. OMG. it is a 2800 seat theatre and they had only sold 150 tickets. it is gorgeous. absolutely gorgeous.
now the movie was great BUT the best part of the evening, other than having a blast with my Emmie, was meeting Rose & Shirley. they were two ladies already seated in front of us and were discussing a book they couldn’t remember the name of. Emmie knew the book and said it. so then the four of us started talking books and they shared they are in a book club. i asked if they had read And The Ladies of The Club by Helen Hoover Santmeyer. they said No and would add it to their list. we talked about books they read and movies. then they said their bookclub was called HELL. and we were like WHAT?????!!!!!!! OMG.. we sat and laughed as they talked about the jokes they tell based on the name of their bookclub. (stands for Hosting Elsevier Literary Ladies) and they said I should start a bookclub and could name it HELL too, all I needed was to live on a street that started with an E… which i do!!!! they started laughing and Emmie said ~ and she’s married to a Presbyterian minister!!! which they just cracked up again!!! what a great great fun night.
then Saturday was supposed to be a whole day with my boss because she said we needed a fun day before the semester began because our summer semester has been crazy horrible. she picked me up at 2 and we headed to Amish country. went to tons of little stores, found a place for a quilting retreat, and then ended up in Sugarcreek. we had dinner at Dutch Valley restaurant because we then went to the Ohio Star Theatre to see the Annie Moses Band. let me just say if you don’t know this band YOU SHOULD!!!!! they were AMAZING, AMAZING.
and today was church, lunch, laundry and off to a birthday party for an uncle turning 80.
what a weekend.
