Happy Fourth of July!

My good friend Pam from Juarez got back to DC today, so we met for dinner, then walked down to the Iwo Jima Memorial to watch the fireworks – they were really fantastic! It was great to get caught up with Pam, too, and will be fun to have her in town.

In fact, she and I went to see Joan Armatrading at The Birchmere Music Hall on Friday night – it was fantastic! I went after class to wait in line, since it’s first-come, first-serve. I had a nice shady bench to sit on with some other fans, did my homework and was rewarded with the perfect seat at the show. It was wonderful to hear so many of her old songs – her voice is just incredible.

Monday was a holiday and I took it easy with a pedicure, a little shopping and a nice steak while John and I watched an Israeli movie. We have to use sub-titles, of course, but it’s fun to pick up on some of the dialogue.

Hebrew was a little rocky this week, but we just have to hang in there with it and keep studying.

Saturday morning we met Richard for a nice brunch and conversation at Kramerbooks in Dupont Circle. It was rainy, which was nice because it cooled things off a bit. We spent the rest of Saturday afternoon studying, then watched “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” based on the novel by Stieg Larsson. We loved the book and really enjoyed the movie, too.
