Lee’s Summit & Les Miz

Wednesday evening.  I took the 11-year-old nephew Luke to Panda Express, since he likes orange chicken.  And I taught him how to eat with chopsticks.  This was a priceless meal.

Thursday morning.  Samson woke me early, then we slept for another hour in the recliner in the family room at Pop’s house.  I headed to Hy-Vee, bringing home fixings for slow-cooker chili and some wonderful banana pudding, and cornbread.  All is now where it should be: the chili in the slow cooker, and the pudding in the fridge.

Thursday noon.  The niece Anna and I will see a noon showing of Les Miz at the local 12-plex.  Then I shall most likely go see Aunt Esther, unless I am cried out from the movie, in which case I will nap here at Pop’s house and see Aunt Esther tomorrow.

I really like doing for others.  Cooking today, even as easy as it is, is a mitzvah, since I’m helping others.  And taking the niece and nephews on separate trips to various things is both a mitzvah and a blessing for me.
