Last night we had our orchestra party - actually the best one we have had I think. My friend K had it at her house, they just had a new baby last week so I can't believe she did it but they seemed great about the whole thing. I think she was so relieved her in-laws went home anything else was a breeze! I brought J and D - they seemed to like it, especially J holding the baby as he is just silly about tiny babies. Cute.
Sunday (last) the bell choir played in church, perhaps for the last time. I don't know - I guess we are having a discussion meeting just of the music people (3) next week. Seems like the "management" of the church really wants to take the mission of the church a different way, that doesn't include us at all. We are welcome to continue with the old people service until they all die off. Gag.
Sunday evening I had the college orchestra concert where I was a ringer for 2nd oboe - very nice to be so relaxed! The film clips we accompanied on the 2nd half didn't work in the dress rehearsal right before - quite tense for a few minutes as they realized there was no backup disk. But I guess it was just smudged or something, because then it worked fine. My friend DH played the clarinet solo - hadn't realized she was still in town but she is a great player. Don't know why we don't use her for stuff, maybe because she is "too" good? Complicated. Hadn't seen her for maybe 10 years! Fun.
Why This Appeals So Much To Me
