Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Today's the calm before the storm, I guess. They're saying 4-7" of snow tomorrow and tomorrow night. Today is pleasant weather :-)
The kiddos have ceramics this morning, and this afternoon dd are off for a girls' day. She originally had an appointment to see the specialist at the university hospital, but she no longer needs to see him...but she wasn't going to let me get away with no travel and no shopping, LOL. Since neither of us has a rehearsal tonight, we can be footloose and fancy free. Since ds and poppa will be tapping trees this afternoon, no one will even miss us, even if we come home late :-) We're going to the outlets and wherever else she wants to go.
Yesterday's concerts both went well. Our orchestra has come a long way in the past 3 years under our present conductor. She can really teach (both winds and strings) and that shows in how our players are improving. There's no way we could have pulled off yesterday's challenging concert, 3 years ago. (Next concert is "Music of the Dance" but don't let the switch from "space" to "dance" fool you...the music is challenging too, LOL.) My friends who came from out of town enjoyed the concert and we had a lovely meal at the new Olive Garden. They own a t-shirt printing shop and my friend made me a cool musical t-shirt, using a funny musical thing I'd seen on facebook. She's the creative sort when it comes to shirts...you never know what she'll come up with! Of course, my wearing the shirt to orchestra could be good advertising...I will gladly collect orders if anyone else wants one. ($12.95, printed on the front with a fancy name on the back...not a bad deal for a shirt, at all!) By day, she teaches high school Spanish. The shirt business was always her husband's pipe dream, and he does plenty of work as well, but she loves to play and design new shirt designs. She made an identical one for her school's band director, in fact.
