BLOG EXTRA: BUSY BUSY WEEK.
Because I choose to sing in the FUMC choir, this is a busy week. We performed (sung) at church last Sunday - as expected. Wednesday night rehearsal - long rehearsal with hired brass players from Dallas. 5 of them. 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, and a French horn. I understand that two of them are working on doctorates in music, another teaches private lessons and makes a living, and the 5th is a regular ole music student. They really have an understanding of their skill.
Thursday night service - Maundy Thursday. A short but sweet service with communion.
Good Friday night service - not much to say other than we had a great deal of symbolism in the service.
No Performance on Saturday but daughter Christine drove up from Round Rock to spend the weekend. That is a bit time consuming.
Sunday was a marathon. Had to be at choir practice by 7:45 a.m. - 1st service at 8:30 - re-rehearse with the visiting brass at 9:30 - 2nd service hit at 10:50. There was a lot of singing, not just today but all week. And RESPONSIVE READINGS? Don't get me started. I don't think I have recited responsively this much since I took the wedding vows 50 plus years ago. A lot of talking was going on. Our preacher Bayard Pratt did a quite commendable sermon for both services.
After church service the spouse and Christine decided it was a trip to Sirloin Stockade for lunch -- Sir Stk is a Golden Corral or Ryans - depends where you live. The menu is pretty much the same every day of the week - after about 5 years of eating there, it is not too exciting. What can you do with beef, fried chicken, baked ham or turkey, so forth. I had a couple of sirloin steaks which were fine.
During lunch the two females announced we should go to the Dallas Arboretum today. We did. That is such a nice place to visit. When we were there the last time, we joined, so today's visit was free - less gasoline and refreshments. That ends the week pretty much.
Tomorrow morning my wife and daughter to the monthly Corsicana Quilt Guild meeting. I willl stay at home and baby sit the dogs - our 5 and her 3. It should be a fun morning.
If you read this think there would be a trace of humor, you were wrong. Next time per chance. I did leave out the part where I couldn't find my phone for a long time. Finally found it on the dash of my car. Didja ever have one of those tiring weeks? meanwhile - this coming week will be less taxing unless you consider I am taking my income tax stuff into a CPA on Tuesday. That will be taxing.
Y'all take care.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie.
