Catching up before bedtime!

Let’s see, what has gone on since last we really met, dear 3.5 readers? Yesterday, my day was taken up with a meeting at a group home in the wilds of Anne Arundel County, Merlin.  It actually was a refreshing experience because I could see almost immediately that my client was doing so well there for a very simple reason: the staff gave her good, loving care.  Since we really were on the same page, we had a good meeting and came away with ideas that helped the client.   Ahhhh.  Lovely! Who says lawyers are only about strife and contested hearings? Oh, did I say that? Sorry! It was a hot, but beautiful sunshiney  – a day for which I was grateful!
Later, I got home, did some paperwork, and went to bell choir practice.  More people came this time, so we did have a good practice and got a lot done.  But before we started, I walked in on a wonderful rehearsal with Diane L and Drew C, one of the soprano and tenor soloists (respectively) for the Bach Cantata we’re doing on 5/17.  It was such a treat.  Diane is truly a professional – a graduate of Peabody and a music teacher par excellence with a voice to match:) Drew has a wonderful tenor voice and his falsetto can get up there into the soprano range, LOL:) But he’s definitely a man with the strength of a man’s voice and lung power!  I couldn’t help but applaud when they were done.  Even though Diane said they had so much work to do, it was such a treat to listen to them.  I love Bach.  I admit it – so shoot me, LOL!
Today was a very very quiet day on the work front.  I had to get some files and paperwork to the office, but that took practically no time at all.  Earlier this evening I finally went to a Sip N Knit at the Panera Bread at the Dobbin Center.  Everyone was abuzz about the Merlin Sheep and Wool Festival.  I did not go last year, but will probably go at least this coming Saturday after rehearsal for the Bach.  If not Saturday, then Sunday for a bit.  It’s just so exciting; like the fair coming to town in the pre-TV days of our ancestors.  It’s wonderful to see other fiber addicts like myself and I just don’t feel so all alone (LOL!).  I won’t have much cash to buy a lot o’ stuff, but that’s OK.  It’s just so much fun to see all the activities. And this time I will probably be paying a lot of attention to the spinners:) and I don’t mean stationary bike riders:)
John will be off Friday night, so he won’t be exhausted watching the grandangels whilst I do the rehearsing of the Bach, so I won’t feel too bad.  Were he to work Friday night, I’d cut the rehearsal as short as I can and get my toochas home so he could go to bed – and S&Wwould not be an option for saturday!
But now I don’t feel bad going….
Yesterday’s meeting and tonight’s fun and frolic did net me a few more inches on the FLS for D as you can see here:

I’ve gotten some of the lace done, but I’ve got a LONG way to go, and that’s Ohhhhh Kayyyy!
Well, it’s very late and I have court in the morning for a wonderful client I am so proud to know.  Be back tomorrow, I hope.  Until then, God be with you ’til we meet again!

Wife of one, mother of six, Grammy to eight (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!

  1. Enough with the 3.5 readers! You have at least 4.
    Those photographs are lovely. What a nice place. So glad to read good news about a client too.

  2. That’s a beautiful green for the FLS–(and i have almost caught up to you.. i have 3 lace repeats as of last night!)–Before i got the multi color yarn i used, i had planned to use some green yarn for these sweater, too!

    I can see how the lace is going to get boring too.. it is a simple easy to memorize pattern.. but it looks pretty.

  3. Sweater looks great. Clarification on earlier error — I had been astonished that our children’s choir, wonderful as they are, could have possibly sung this incredibly difficult Christ Lag in Todesbanden. I said to Rachael, who had been in the Schola Cantorum and now is in the adult choir, “This must be easy for you, since you have already sung it.” Well, what they sang is from some other Bach Easter Cantata, also about Tod. I was pretty relieved to hear this, because I am having a REALLY hard time learning it. We are now only doing the first movement, which is both a disappointment and a relief.
