Today's opera was "Aida" and it was just as glorious and moving as it always is. The role of Aida was sung by a young American soprano, Tamara Wilson, who has been doing this part for several years. She did not disappoint. Then for dinner Mr. C whipped up a chiles rellenos casserole he has made at home (US home, that is) and it was yummy.
I was feeling a bit dragged out today. Don't know why. I had a delightful lunch with two friends yesterday over in Tecoman. We went to a juice-bar-health-food place they like and I certainly know why. I had a delicious crepe with chile poblana strips, mushrooms and a light cheese sauce. I was feeling VERY healthy afterwards. But today I seem to have had the tropical blahs yet again. Tomorrow will be better, I'm sure.
I took a little nap this afternoon and slept through two chapters of my new book, "The Luminaries" by Eleanor Catton. 2013 Mann Booker award.
It's more complicated that I though because I am not one who knows what each Zodiac sign "means" as far as personality types go But I'll keep going. It's been described as a "brilliant shaggy dog story." We'll see.
Refrigerator repair man expected tomorrow ~ TOMORROW!! SUNDAY!! ~ because the machine is not keeping cold. Needs freon? Who knows. Again, we'll see.
