scamp, world music, and day game

It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time to reflect back on three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I pass by a bulldog puppy on a leash who is occupying itself while its owner chats with friends. The puppy is sprawled in a tree box full of mulch and has found a bigger piece of wood to carry around.

2. We haven’t been to Wolf Trap, the outdoor performance amphitheater, in years, but decide to head out at the last minute to see Angélique Kidjo and Femi Kuti perform. We run into Michael, Julia, and Shawn (and Shawn’s boyfriend) when looking for a spot to park our blanket, so get to watch an amazing, high-energy concert with friends. (If you get the chance to see either artist perform, I highly recommend that you take advantage of it. You won’t regret it!)

3. We take a holiday for a day baseball game (on which it does not pour midday, although there are occasionally clouds that provide respite from the ongoing heatwave and humidity). I win the designated driver contest for the first time in more than ten years of entering, and the Nationals win the ballgame. Oh, and we happen upon a half-off clearance sale of All-Star Game merchandise, so come home with commemorative caps, too.

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