The tour is on! Which means that Jeremy is watching it while I’m blogging. It’s a gorgeous weekend here in the DMV, we tried to take advantage of it. I often try to put in a few hours of work on Sat, but not today. Today was for a true, no work summer weekend. Edda and I went to see Antman & the Wasp. I have, for years, gotten emails about sensory sensitive showings of movies in Rockville Town Square (1 mile from the house) and paid zero attention to them, but I went this past winter to see Coco because I had heard such great reviews of Coco and now I love these sensory showings. They are at a great time for us (10:30 am on Saturdays), they usually happen the day after opening day, they reduce the price to 6.50 a ticket and they keep the lights ever so slightly lit and the volume is quieter. And because it’s geared for special needs kids, I don’t have to worry about Edda yelling the the middle of the movie because there are a lot of kids yelling. Someone told me yesterday that there were two “shorts” at the end of the movie that we had to stay for – one mid-ending credits and one end-ending credits, so we hung around to watch those. Edda had a better time than this photo indicated. Even with the sound down, I still wanted to protect my ears and I had forgotten my foam ear plugs, so I had to make makeshift ones from the inner absorbent layer of one of Edda’s extra (clean, unused) diapers.
Jeremy had gone on a long bike ride in the morning, but he finished as the same time as the movie let out, so we met at World of Beer to have lunch (tour on TV. also world cup. also wimbledon. lots of sports activities to keep track of. )
My quilt came back from the quilters this week. I need to do the edging.
I got the new sewing machine threaded and worked on some quilt blocks.
