I didn't intend to take a blogging break, but I'm living through one of those times when every day is pretty much the same and not really worth talking about. On top of that, I haven't felt very well for the last couple of weeks, so it got easy to let the blog (and Twitter, for that matter), slide a bit.
So here's some miscellanea that covers the past several days.
My cover band's new bass player is working out well and making the band sound tighter than before, even though he's just starting to learn the songs. We took a stab at setting up the PA at last night's band practice. Um, yeah. I'm glad my husband has a friend who used to work as a professional sound man. We're going to need to consult with him on a few things.
I guess it's not too early to start promoting my band's gig on September 26th. You'll find a flier here. It's a small club, but we're hoping to pack it pretty full, particularly because we're already booked there again in October.
In household news, we got a bid from the contractor for the remodeling of our guest room, repair of our garage ceiling and removal of the ivy that's taking over our deck and garage. It sounds reasonable, so I think we're ready to accept it and get started whenever the crew is available. Now I just need to choose colors and materials and start thinking about furniture.
I'm really enjoying the fall weather - I think it may be my favorite season. My sister and I went shopping in Parkville last weekend and decided that we need to make a point of attending some Oktoberfests this year with my niece and nephew. The Applefest in Weston is always a good one. Mmm, apple turnovers with vanilla ice cream!
In fact, I may make minestrone on Saturday evening for the attendees of a board game night I'm having. I tried to organize a spur-of-the-moment game night last Saturday, but didn't manage to round anyone up then. I'm hoping to have more luck this weekend.
Well, I think I've rambled enough. Have a great Wednesday and we'll assume this marks my return to a regular posting schedule.
