Lanterns, Chinese Style

Sandra and I went to this thing tonight.

Chinese Lantern Festival...

At the PNE grounds.

(If it's not raining, I will be outside.)

It was spread out over All The Acres, so lots of room to wander.

Lots of room for thousands of people to ooooh and ahhhhh.

There were, maybe, a couple hundred of us there.

Just like Glow, (from the other night), I again felt like this was a great event to attend with grandchildren or a kissy date.

Never-the-less, it was a beautiful night to be out, walkin around. And the lanterns really were pretty spectacular.

Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Friday night lights. Haha. See what I did there?

2. Hot showers. Clean hair. Soft pajamas. Quiet basement.

3. Book club. We're meeting on Monday night to talk about The Handmaid's Tale. And then we're going to pick books to read in 2018... based on a number of category options, like:

  • Prize winning titles (Pulitzer, Booker, Nobel, PEN/Faulkner)
  • A book in a genre you usually avoid
  • Newbury Medal Winner (Children's Literature)
  • A book set somewhere you've never been but would like to visit
  • A book in translation
  • A book chosen by the cover
  • A book you should have read in high school
  • A book you don't want to admit you're dying to read
  • A book that intimidates you
  • A book that's been banned
  • A book published before you were born

We'll each suggest titles for each category then decide which category to read in January and vote on which book based on all the suggestions brought forward. 

I know, right?


There was a contortionist performing on the stage:

Just crazy.
