Mr. Bookwyrm was on travel this week, and I had the week off from indexing. As usual, I had unrealistic ideas about how much I could get done, but although I didn’t get to everything on my to-do list, I did have a productive and pleasant week. I dealt with some backlogged paperwork, did a little much-overdue housework, got my flu shot, shopped for shoes (ugh), and provided transportation for a friend to visit her husband in the hospital. (He is going to be all right, and was discharged that evening.) I baked pumpkin bread one morning, then spent the afternoon with another friend having tea, talking about books, and spinning. On Friday, I did a lot of concert preparation, from sitting while the piano tuner worked on the church piano to buying supplies for the post-concert reception.
Speaking of concert prep, this afternoon is the fall concert for my choruses — the two I direct and the one I sing in. We had a good dress rehearsal yesterday. Both the choruses I direct are smaller than usual, but I’m pleased with how well they are singing.
We’re seeing Hamilton on tour this week! I am so excited. I plan to listen to the cast album several times before we go, so I know all the lyrics. It’s going to be great.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if you are celebrating it this week!
