I ended up having one of the best days in my life.
I go back to college very soon so my mother and I spent the day together. Our main plan was to go to the art show together since we like art and we're fascinated by the unusual things that always turn up there. Such amazing exhibits and pieces of artwork! Paintings, photography, statues, jewelry, music, glass...I loved it all! I ended up buying a break-taking painting of the ocean for my dorm room along with a necklace that says Dream and a poster that says "She turned her can'ts into cans and her dreams into plans". Sooo happy! Almost bought a plushie of a bomb with an F on it. Get it? F-Bomb? XD
It rained heavily on us and the art show was all outdoors so we fled to a marketplace for some burgers (YUM!) and sampled fancy chocolates. Rain stopped, we went to view the rest of the art (protected in tents, thankfully). When it started again, we ran over to an ice cream place that served AMAZING dark cocoa ice cream. And of course the rain did stop but when it did, mom and I had drove around the city & got lost. Glad we did.
Turns out, there was a huge boat show. Not the boring "Oh look at all these fancy boats" or "I think I'll buy a boat" shows. I mean boats on the city river doing daring stunts and super cool tricks. Like a fire-boat spraying water from the river into the air and even mixing non-toxic dyes to make it a rainbow of colors. Mom and I hung out on the rivers edge to watch, get sprayed and enjoy the beautiful day as the sun came out & a gentle breeze brushed past.
I'm home now. Chilling out from the epic day and will take a nap. Probably pack more of my belongings in a little while. Dinner will roll around complete with grilled steaks and corn on the cob (again, YUM!). One last night with my family before I take on the college life yet again.
P.S. Update for manga will be Monday
Drinking: iced lemonade
