Life has been it's usual busy, get things done and meet some deadlines and have some more performance kinda thing.
Drama Club at school presented "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde a couple of weekends ago. I was the Prop Master for the show, so tea cups and silver tea services, journals and LOTS of cucumber sandwiches were taking up my time. These kids ate through almost the entire show! They were awesome and had quite an excellent theatre adjuducation from the New York state Theatre Association!
Some of my high school singers attended a New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) solo festival this past weekend. They did pretty well overall, and two of them received a perfect score on the pieces they performed.
This weekend I'll be attended an all male knitting retreat just north of Albany. I'm very excited! I'm taking a laceknitting class, a spinning class, double knitting and a class on binding off techniques. I think there are about 35 men going, so it should be quite a hoot! My friend Van, who I met through menwhoknit.com will be going, so he and I can do some catching up, as well as meet lots of new people. I know of a few guys who are going, but I'll take lots of pics and let you know who they are next week.
Yesterday I drove to Pa. to take Mom out to dinner for Mother's Day. It was a very nice day. It's not often we get to have time with just the two of us, so it was a nice treat.
I've started a little lace bookmark for a swap, and a mohair shawl is on the needles for some mindless knitting. That's it for knitting at the moment.
I hope you all are having a great start to your week!
