I had a busy day today. Walked my brilliant dog. Twice. I walked her twice because I could not play ball with her. She fractured her toe (are dog's toes called toes?) and so needs to be kept calm. Which is pretty much an impossible thing to do. And so I walk her in the morning as is our morning ritual. Then I feed her and then, instead of going to the dog park to play ball, we walk again. On a hiking trail rather than in the orange grove. So the walk is more a hike and hopefully will tire her out. It does not. She is crazy. I am happy her toe is healing fast!
So I walked my brilliant dog twice then went into LA to have a lunch meeting about a really amazing theater called The Echo. You should check it out. It is an intimate - as in small - theater that presents original and new works. The plays are phenomenal. The caliber of acting is high. Like really good. Like better than most.
So I did that. Then got to see my middle daughter, who lives in LA, and hang out with her for a bit. We got to snuggle in her bed and laugh a lot like we do and also talk deeply and share thoughts and then laugh even more.
And then I drove home - ahead of the traffic leaving LA which makes me very happy. And walked my still not calm dog yet again. And now it is after 6:00 and I am just now writing my Monday morning writing.
My busy day took me away from writing it this morning. So here it is now.
Oh, and the picture has nothing to do with any of this. I just like it. It's looking up at the upstairs porch of my lovely house. It makes me smile.
Ok, I am off to play with my dog some more...because that is what I do.
Thank you for reading my writing today!!
