I am going stir crazy! Another day of cancelled Encore rehearsals. ARGH! But we will be ready for our concerts. I am sure of that. Everyone loves the repertoire and all the singers will work hard to give fabulous performances.
I am also lost! Every morning I get up and look at the huge American flag flying at the marina up the creek. It allows me to know which way the wind is blowing. Because of the severe weather, they decided to take it down. So I am looking at the sea grasses in the marsh to give me wind direction.
I need sunglasses in my living room, dining room and kitchen area. With the sun bouncing off the bay which is covered with lots of snow, it is super bright! The bay is 80% frozen. BUT……..it is supposed to get into the 50’s soon and hopefully within two weeks, we will see water and maybe even the fishing fleet going out into the Bay. Right now, all we see is the heron and geese flying overhead. Last weekend we got a real treat. We have huge otters that play in the water in front of our house. Boy, are they confused. No water to play in. So one was sliding across the ice. It was so fun to watch.
The winner for the most cancelled rehearsals…………..drums rolling please…………..Washington Conservatory of Music at Glen Echo! They have missed three in a row. But luckily I always scheduled in three extra weeks for the winter/spring semester. We are safe! But, they do lose spring break. Sorry kids!
