The air show was scheduled for Saturday, but after just two maneuvers it all stopped. They held it in a shortened format this afternoon. I read that several of the pilots became ill and that is why it ended abruptly on Saturday. We had some heavy rains in the middle of the day today, and when the sun finally came out and the rain stopped the planes were in the skies.
I think I've mentioned that I don't like planes, especially military type fighter planes, but I'll have to say the way they flew them, so fast and so close and with such precision, is a beautiful thing. You couldn't see it without becoming awestruck.
The rain was so much needed and welcome, and I doubt anyone was annoyed with it. Tomorrow will be cloudy and I'm hoping we see some more moisture, as the forecast calls for sun from mid-week on. It has been so chilly that I closed most of my windows - fine thing that I should have done before we used the leaf blower which caused a lot of dust to enter the house. I started cleaning the kitchen and bathroom the day afterward, but then lost all my steam and motivation. I haven't been feeling well since, and I think it is related to the dental problems I'm having. I see the dentist next Friday and will have another molar pulled. I will need to get a partial lower denture or I won't be able to eat, which means I will lose weight, which I've already started to do.
I got out my sketch pad and drawing pencils today, plus three apples from the fridge, and did a very light drawing that looks pretty decent. The apples are not the best as a subject for painting, so I will get a few from Bel Air before the next art class. The trouble is that the best looking ones aren't usually the most tasty, and I will have to eat them in the end. I sometimes cut up apples and lightly fry them along with (pre-cooked) Aidell's chicken sausage, and it's very tasty.
I managed to get to Costco this afternoon and picked up a few needed items (including a gallon of ice cream). I think the big bag of tangerines with their Vitamin C will make me feel better. Actually the ice cream will make me feel better than anything, but I love tangerines as well and usually eat 3 or 4 of them at a sitting. I hope I feel better soon, but unfortunately I'm going to feel much worse before I feel better!
I took a few pictures of the rain today (isn't that so Californian!) and need to take the card out of the camera and see what I have. Maybe I'll post a couple of photos tomorrow.
