Hey moms and grandmas, come on out. Weekends are for fun, too!
Woke up to a white blanket...again. Winter seems to want to hang on this year. We get one or two days of sap flow, and then back to cold again. It ran like crazy yesterday....now probably won't run til Monday or Tuesday at the earliest. Crazy. And here my dad worked so hard to time the AZ trip for after sap. At the rate it's going, he's going to miss two weeks of production, LOL. Ah well, it is what it is. I did see several gallon jars of syrup on his deck, waiting for final cookdown.
We have church this morning. My dad is the speaker and he's written a first-person narrative featuring the story of Zechariah (and Elizabeth). My mom will read the part of Elizabeth, and ds is the narrator and also Zechariah's "voice" for when he was unable to speak. They've already headed off to church to practice. In addition, ds is playing special music (Amazing Grace) on his violin, with myself and sister as accompaniment/back-up. If he keeps his head about him, it should be nice. That, and hold dd back from playing like she's the soloist, LOL.
Had an intriguing offer last night, from a fellow musician friend. She wanted to know if I'd be interested in trading violin lessons for voice lessons. I am definitely interested...with the voice lessons being for dd. Not that I couldn't use them too, but she could use them more and has more potential for a career that involves singing. We'll be pursuing the arrangement in the near future. The lady teaches music (choir now but has had orchestra too) for the public school system and we've (or at least my mom has) known her for many years. In addition, she was the mother in the recent production of Amahl, and now she's singing in the ecumenical choir in which I sing.
