300/365 Spectacular

'Watching the Trains"

For some reason, we are both exhausted and stressed out these days.  I can't put my finger on exactly why that is.  All I know is that no matter how much work I do I still have a ton more things that need to be done.  It is a terrible feeling.  I would just like to experience 48 hours where I don't feel that no matter what I am doing I should be doing something else, something more important.  Maybe 48 hours is being a little greedy; I'd settle for just 24.  I don't see that happening anytime soon so I guess that I had better get a grip and soldier on.

We did take about an hour this afternoon before Resounding Harmony rehearsal to go see a model train exhibit at a local recreation center.  I felt guilty for just a few minutes and then ignored those feelings.  It was very cool to see all these men (and yes, all of the train operators were men)  who were so creative and passionate about their trains.  The layouts were both beautiful and whimsical.  Who knew that one should become so mesmerized by trains going round and round.  I didn't realize how much I would enjoy this.  And there is no doubt in my mind that Weber enjoyed the trains even more than I did.

We both had fun taking pictures (and video) of the trains as well.

If we had time and space (and money to buy them), I suspect we would have a train set-up like this at our house.  I bet the cat would love that...maybe even more than Weber!
