A day off?

I’m in the midst of four days of holiday….

But boy howdy, do I seem to be busy:

  • sorting through things that belonged to my mother and father
  • going on a leisurely stroll through Costco and still only spending less than $140
  • then driving on local roads to Aldi, and the bank, and Dierberg’s, and taking my time in each location
  • doing a photo shoot
  • enjoying a half-day at the spa
  • taking Auggie for his own doggie-spa morning
  • cooking and cleaning and doing laundry
  • napping
  • arranging voice lessons for next week
  • and reading.

Sunday will be a church service, a voice lesson, and a choral concert.  Then steak on the grill, with homemade macaroni & cheese, green salad, and strawberries for dessert.

Memories: senior recital

Twenty years ago today, my then-seniors in high school sang a senior recital.

I found the program in my father’s belongings.

Of these students, I visited with Matt Wilson in Chicago two or three years ago, and Jimmy Boswell is a Facebook friend.  The rest have disappeared.

These students were an especially good group, and I adored teaching them.
