Sunday – an opera and a dinner

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

So, yesterday I went to the opera with mom.  It was a Verdi neither of us had seen, Simon Boccanegra, and one that we think we would have been perfectly ok with having never seen it.  Oh well – the singing for the most part was  good…


After the opera, we met Kevin and dad for dinner.  First off, wine needed to be had.


Then a bit of appetizer madness, followed by some main courses – schnitzels for Kevin and me, ’cause it was a German restaurant.

And leftovers to take home for supper tonight (since tonight, I am off to the symphony with mom and dad, the old social calendar runneth over this weekend!!)


And now, time to start Monday…sigh…

  1. I have never heard of that opera, but it does not sound like one I am especially missing.

  2. Sounds like a lovely evening with your mom, Emily. Good for you!
    I hope your Monday was lovely. 🙂
