Random babbling

Whew, what a day.  Work was busy and I came home to tend chickens and get everyone fed before we rushed off to K11's winter band concert.  The concert was a combination of the beginner and advanced elementary bands.  The beginner band sounded like, well, a beginner band, with a mercifully short performance.  The advanced band (K11 is in this one) sounded much better.  It's amazing what a year of practice can do.
Tomorrow, we have another concert. I14 and the high school concert band will have their winter concert. Now THOSE guys can play!
I woke to snow this morning.  And it stuck around all day.  Not a lot of snow, maybe only an inch, but it makes things look quite seasonal.  Maybe I'll finally get into a holiday mood.  Of course, the snow took me by surprise this morning and I was confused.   I didn't sleep well last night and was having a weird dream about the chicken coop and shop being on fire when my alarm went off (I think I'm paranoid about having that heat lamp out there on the thermal cube).  Anyway, I went to let the dog out onto the deck and when I saw the snow, not being fully awake, I immediately thought it was ashes from the fire.  I really need to get into the shower first thing to wake up!!
I think we may be putting up the tree on Saturday.  It may actually be a several day affair because Spaz always climbs the tree so we usually give him a day without ornaments to get his jollies out.  Although last year he wasn't too bad.
I ordered V's other gift today. Shhh...  It's a secret...
I also ordered some serger thread.  Not from the same place.
V put up the towel racks in the upstairs bath.  NOW we're really living!  I don't know if I can stand the strain.
Ok, I really am babbling.  I only got a few hours of sleep last night between having a series of coughing fits that made it difficult to get to sleep and then waking up at 2:40 and having difficulty going back to sleep.  I think I'm going to hit the hay.

  1. Sounds like you had a rough night and a scary morning! lol Must be nice to have your kids playing a musical instrument. So many schools have dropped the "Arts" in favor of football. Such a shame. Our rain for the last 2 days is supposed to turn to snow sometime today - I'm not so sure. It's too warm...lol famous last words!! ...debbie


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
