I am so behind.
So, last Monday ballet and dance started for Hannah. They aren’t offering adult classes (again) and I think that the season for dancing as an adult with CMA is over. The teachers have gotten married, had babies, moved, have other jobs, there just isn’t the teacher or time for it right now. That could change, but I doubt it.
Tuesday we had our free MOA Natura Obscura exhibit on Tuesday, it was a (very) mini Meow Wolf type exhibit. But first, lunch.
We had black lights that lit up areas on the floor, we used an app on our phone to turn on things or see things that weren’t there in real life.
There were things to touch, a swing, things to listen to, it was pretty cool. Tuesday night I took the train downtown to meet James for LAPOMPE jazz at Union station.
It was great. Then, we had a double jazz night with jazz at Phil’s.
Wednesday I had said we were walking with Pam at Walk2Connect in Montbello. It was snowing, but she (and one senior) were still walking so….we loaded up and drove out there. We made 1.5 miles before the snow really started coming down and we ended the walk.
I wish I could say I was smart and went home, but we were close to the Wildlife refuge so….we drove there.
We were leaving when the snow started coming down even harder and blowing so much that I could barely see the road (they don’t really plow out there.) It took us just over an hour to get home, it was very slow on the freeway, but the roads were plowed and not slick. Wednesday evening we left James at home with Jack and went out in the snow (and cold, it was 7 degrees) to the Fire and Ice festival.
We made s’mores before I thought about the fact that the chocolate was just sitting there, frozen, I chomped down and guess what? A hot marshmallow doesn’t melt chocolate that is frozen. I just had one s’more.
There was a huge block of ice with fire inside of it, some sculptures, the art inside, a min-theater, dancing lights and fire dancers.
It started snowing again as we left, but even though the snow was blowing the roads were fine.
Thursday we dropped Jack at Petsmart and were about to take the train downtown for the symphony when I got a call that it was canceled because none of the school buses could make it there on time with a delayed start due to snow. Why that is MY problem, I don’t know. They don’t think they will reschedule it either, so that sucked. So, we grabbed laptops and did coffee school.
Since it was tamale Thursday, we went to Adelitas for that, then I made a 50 cent corn dog Sonic run (Hannah didn’t want tamales.)
We picked up Jack and a new shirt (The guac is extra and so am I), he loves it (not really, but I don’t care.)
Friday we did school then headed to the Rocky Mt. Feline Rescue to see what was up there. We have a group coming in April, so I wanted to make sure they were cool with it an what kind of supplies they needed. It’s a free roaming shelter, though they do have a few rooms set up for sick or shy cats to keep them safe.
Due to the dander, we lasted about 30 minutes before having to leave, but it was nice. The evening was crazy. Bethany was coming home and her car stalled pretty close to home, meanwhile I was picking up Aaron and Grace and driving them to a library cupcake war in Arvada while James was driving Hannah to a different library for a murder mystery. James waited with Bethany for a tow, then took her home (I got someone to drive Hannah home), meanwhile Jack and I were exploring Petsmart in Arvada while waiting on the kids.
