A Fourth Weekend to Remember

It all started Thursday when the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular was moved due to tropical storm Arthur. Lili and I headed in to watch the fireworks and hear the selection of music for this year. We got onto the Oval, closer to the area where the Symphony actually plays. We listened to the Beach Boys and Megan Hilty with lots of snacks.

Then, the metrologists said that they had to do the show or it would be rained out. The fireworks were gorgeous and finished quickly. 

As we were leaving, a torrential downpour started and left everyone soaked. It was chaos. People slipping in the street, hiding in stoops and trying I find shelter. Lili and I sprinted to UNOs, where we had margaritas and food until the T cleared out. It was a once in a lifetime situation. I've never seen rain like that before. 

Friday had me inside most of the day reading and a little bit of fun with the family I live with. They are so nice and I love spending time with time, within reason.  Beneath are my haitian kids, who love and hate me all the time.

Saturday was a day at the park for me complete with a little shopping. I got a glass water bottle and some other goodies for presents I've been eyeing. I also tried a new bakery - Sweet and it was pretty good. Maybe not as good as Georgetown Cupcake but still enjoyable. Lemon Blueberry is the bomb.

Sunday was a surprising day. I was planning to work a little on Sunday and the woman I live with surprised me with a ticket to see Cirque de Soleil's Amaluna. Her friend cancelled and she thought I would enjoy it with her. It was awesome! I want to see as many shows as I can now. The skill and strength to do those stunts amazes me everytime I see it. I would be so scared but it's like breathing for the performers. I went home after and finished up some things for my org. So excited to do big things with them!

 It was a restful and happy weekend. I cannot wait until next weekend though! I'll be traveling to the lovely Pennsylvania State University for Arts Fest.
