a happy Canada Day today (Monday) to our lovely northern neighbors!
Here we have had a hot, humid heatwave that continues with some intermittent storms but it doesn't bother me one bit. I wait TOO long for summer and all it brings. Like the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival held in summer at DeSales University, a lovely private school nearby and the one our son graduated from. We have been on occasion going to see plays and shows at DeSales for many years- even before I was married 36 years ago!
This past Saturday night we went to see 'Crazy For You'.
This is a photo collage showing many of the past actors and actresses. It hangs on the brick wall before entering the LaBuda Center. While waiting to enter the theater we were entertained by these sweet young musicians who played Middle Age and Baroque music- it was delightful!:
This show was SPECTACULAR!!! Everyone was amazing - the dancing- lots of tap dancing, and singing, and acting was top notch! Honestly it was like seeing the show on Broadway but without the cost. This was so uplifting, musical, and funny too and ran for almost 3 hours. I can't gush about it enough, and if it hadn't been the second to last show we would most likely have gone to see it a second time:):) It was THAT good, and as I love old movies and musicals this was right up my alley- and hubby's too. I've shared just the write ups because cameras were forbidden.
For T Stands for Tuesday which will be celebrating 6 years very soon I'll share another photo from a Cape May dinner:
This was at Oyster Bay Restaurant - another place we like to frequent. And here we like to sit at the bar to eat- and usually share several appetizers as our meal. Crab costini, waffle fries, and fried tomatoes with crabmeat and remoulade here are our favorites. Yes, calorie laden, but we so rarely eat like this and are careful to work it off. I enjoyed a lovely cabernet with it. Cheers!

Here is another week of index cards I made for the ICAD (Index Card a Day) Challenge which runs through the 31st of July:
I'm going to share the above one with Try It On Tuesday for the theme of "Material Girl" cuz she sure does look like one doesn't she?
and for the new challenge this month at Art Journal Journey (guest host is Chris) with the theme of "we're all/going":
I am focusing on the word "going" because I am going with neutral, more monochromatic tones and vintage imagery here, and for the 31 index cards for July. And yes, it will be a challenge for me as I love lots of bright colors so much!
Linking to Paint Party Friday too.
Wishing everyone in the US a very Happy Independence Day July 4th!
