Start of another week … man, May is almost over and Memorial Weekend is coming up next week! Is it my imagination or does it seem like this year is also zipping by?? I guess it’s true that the older one gets the faster time goes by and in the end, everything just stops. 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. 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. I’m really excited about the baseball game since this will be my first time attending a major league game anywhere! 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. 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! 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. Awesome take-out! 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! I mean these suckers were only 3-4 inches long – including the stick! I checked the box and was relieved to see that they were the snack-sized version – whew! I thought my eyes were deceiving me again …
