Start of another week … man, May is almost over and Memorial Weekend is coming up next week!Â Is it my imagination or does it seem like this year is also zipping by??Â I guess it’s true that the older one gets the faster time goes by and in the end, everything just stops.Â But hey, enough with the negative vibes … time to move on to happier stuff!
Alex leaves for Japan this week and then we’ll join him later in Fukuoka.Â We’ll be going to Hiroshima to do two performances – a private reception for the Hawai’i – Hiroshima sister-state anniversary celebration, and a concert at the Hiroshima Carp vs. Tokyo Seibu Lions MLB game.Â I’m really excited about the baseball game since this will be my first time attending a major league game anywhere!Â After we’re done, we head over to Yokohama to do two concerts at Thumbs Up – Fri. 6/1 & Sat. 6/2 – before heading home where I’ll probably do battle with Mr. Jet Lag … again.
Sunday was a great day for me … after taking my mom to breakfast in the morning, we just came home and cruised the rest of the day.Â I did go for a jog late in the afternoon … I hadn’t been out in the valley for quite a while and had forgotten how beautiful and vibrant it was, even on a Sunday!Â Â I then went to grab some food at ZPizza in the Ward Centre – a gluten-free pizza for Carla & Linda, and a Mediterranean plate for myself.Â Awesome take-out!Â After stuffing myself, I went to the freezer to grab a Haagen Daz ice cream bar for dessert and couldn’t believe how tiny the bars were!Â I mean these suckers were only 3-4 inches long – including the stick!Â I checked the box and was relieved to see that they were the snack-sized version – whew!Â I thought my eyes were deceiving me again …
