It started out foggy when I got up at 6:30 and now the sun is out! I have talked to Rory this morning and his black jack tournament starts at 10 a.m. I know he enjoys this and I also knows he enjoys things. He told me that after he went to dinner last night, he came back to the room and he had a bottle of champagne that was put in his room by his sponsor. He told me it was nice to have his birthday remembered by someone other than his family.
My devotional this morning was about the Queen of Sheba and the verse for today was 1Kings 10:1-29. When I read the Bible, it astounds me at how much people, especially people higher up, had. I am a very minimalistic person. I like having my Kindle and my lap top and my cell phone, yes. Where my gluttony comes in, is with food. I am not a shoe person or a clothes person. On my organizing days, I am really working at getting rid of things.
Mari and I are taking the train into Los Angeles and taking a Modern Architecture tour through the Los Angeles Conservancy. I try to belong to groups that support saving certain, especially, historic buildings. I know many people would like to tear down old buildings, but I really believe in saving historical buildings.
I got my computer routine done and Mari and I left about 10:15 and headed for Irvine train station. I had to stop at the bank to make sure I had some money for today. When we got to the train station, there were a lot of people going southbound and the train was standing room only. I have no idea what was going on. Our train was slightly late and we headed for Los Angeles. While we were waiting for our train, I realized I had bought business class going north, but coach going south. When we got to LA, I upgraded us to business class going home. We got some lunch and then we headed to the Red Line, which took us to Pershing Square. We did a little bit of walking around and then we met up with our tour group. It was an interesting tour and we got done a little after 4.
Good night! Trudi
