dentist, mystery, and musicals

I’m so confused. I keep thinking that today is Wednesday, but it’s not. So I’ll share three beautiful things with you, right on schedule:

1. Okay, so the dentist visit itself was not beautiful, but I have learned the way to manage my anxiety about these semi-annual appointments is to make an afternoon of it. After the exam was over, I wandered through the Eastern market shops, moseyed through a bookstore, and bought some bubbles. Then I stopped by the library to pick up a couple books and the kitchen store to buy some popsicle molds (to go with the book I bought last month). Then I took myself out for a milkshake (with fresh strawberries) and a homemade PopTart (blueberry cheesecake), bought a couple macarons to take home for dessert, and hung out in a park knitting and reading. Almost makes the dental cleaning worthwhile, wouldn’t you say?

2. Sherlock is back.

3. We stumbled upon musical performances from The Keegan Theatre as we were crossing Dupont Circle. I don’t know what show the Irish folk singer was with (An Irish Carol seems a likely contender), but he was excellent.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
