[personal] Yesterday and today

Nice father-daughter day with the_child yesterday. Took some photos of derelict railroad equipment. Watch for a post later. She also spent a couple of hours swimming in the pool at her grandparents' condo. Later, a nice picnic with K— and her housemate, followed by an evening at a Vaudeville revue and some hanging out.

Today: lunch with parents & K—, the_child's extreme theatre performance, then some extended (virtual) hang time with calendula_witch, whom I will see in person in a couple of days. Yay!
