My niece Ruthie, who is in Los Angeles for a couple weeks (long story), made me laugh with her Facebook post yesterday: "I think someone wants me to stop wanting to live in Cali one day. Cold and rainy here all day and sunny and hot in Minnesota?!?!?!? Los Angeles hasn't experienced a major rain event in months.....until the day after I arrive. *sigh"
It's true -- our weather here in the Twin Cities this week has been spectacular and beautiful.
Meanwhile, on the other coast, my sister Joan is in New York City for her semi-annual Broadway visit. She sees three shows in two days each time she goes and looks forward to her NYC trips more than anything else all year long -- not just for the shows, but to be in New York. It's her reward. This trip, she first saw The Mountaintop, which she wasn't crazy about. Last night, she saw The Book of Mormon, which she liked a lot (and we all know that she loves Mormon boys, fictional or real), and tonight she is seeing a revival of Follies, this time starring Bernadette Peters. Tomorrow she flies home already and will be planning for her next visit, probably be in April.
