taking a peek....

My weekend consisted of alot of reading, talking, watching
and listening to people in various places:

At the assisted living I had a nice conversation
with my friend, Bob - who is trying to get a yoga
class going for all of the seniors.

Talking to my friend, Homa who works at the front desk
of assisted living about the joys and heartbreaks
of working with and giving your heart to the seniors.

Listened to a very interesting man at my fave cafe
talking about all the things he has done in his life,
and it was quite the colorful one to say the least.
He has sat in the same spot (more or less) at this cafe
for the past 19 years and knows EVERYONE that walks by.
It's a cool place that alot of writers, directors,
producers and actors hang out at.  His bantering
with everyone was wonderful to watch and listen to.

It was also refreshing to see a tv/movie actress out
to lunch with her young daughter and listening to her
daughter talking to the same man about what she was reading.
We were all sitting inside the cafe that has a cool bookstore,
and her and her mom had bought some books and gifts there.
  She was a very articulate young lady (probably around 12.) 

At another little cafe - a new french one a few miles from
my home, I was sitting having a crepe and cappuccino yesterday
and there were three men with a four year old little girl.
All of a sudden the little girl wanted to dance to the french
music - so her dad brought her to the front of the cafe and got on his knees and twirled her around until the song was over.  Very sweet and reminded me of my dad.  She then got a cute teapot and tea cups (that were there for kids to play with) and had a little tea party with the men - so adorable!

All in all, a nice weekend with a mix of work, relaxing and taking a peek into other peoples lives whether it be in person or in the wonderful world of books!

Have a beautiful day, everyone!
