One must've opened up and swallowed me whole. It's been a rip roarin' busy couple of weeks and every time I think I'll have time to blog I end up not. There isn't a terrible lot to report. Thanksgiving was good, spent in the company of Kevin's mom's family in Bakersfield. It was a delight to get to know Grandma Marge. She was so warm and welcoming. Grandpa Walt was less present, given his stage of Alzheimer's, but his sweet disposition is both endearing and engaging. He called me sweetheart and made me smile.
Knitting happened both on the ride down south and home again. Butterfly now has two completed fronts (and very proud I am of my short rows on the bust and at the shoulders - just waiting for the three needle bind off!) and half the back. She's currently on hold while I knit like mad on a few Christmas presents - boring blogging, being all top secret. I also started a sleeveless holiday top in Rowan Kid Classic and Lurex Shimmer. Hoping to have it finished in time for holiday parties in a couple weeks. I think that will be my task at UFO Friday this week.
Bach is still kicking my butt and the Pärt even moreso. I had a migraine at rehearsal last night and I just don't process very fast when I'm fighting pain in my head. Apologies to Daniel and the soprano section. I'll have some time to drill my parts tomorrow and over the weekend. Sunday is the first of our holiday concert events, the annual gig at Chateau Julien in Carmel. The following weekend we have three concerts: Friday at Mission Church on the University of Santa Clara campus, Saturday at Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz and Sunday at St. Benedict's in Hollister. Details, etc. at the Choral Project's website.
And don't forget to visit my Frappr Map to place your pin. I get an insane amount of joy from knowing where you all are. Stop by and say hello!
