I was just talking with a friend (and fine musician) today. Both of us are off work for a while. I’m happy to be able to stay home and get some things done around here (I did some good cleaning today!), and it’s great to hang out with family. Still, I do miss my orchestra pals, making music … and even my whining and all about being so tired. Funny how that happens!

There is something about work … while it is absolutely exhausting sometimes, and while I often feel under-appreciated—but who doesn’t, eh?—and working means late hours and all that jazz, it’s also energizing and fulfilling. So it’ll be great to get back. Really. (Remind me about writing this when I start grumping, please!)

Meanwhile …
I’m so excited about flying to SoCal this weekend. Kelsey, Mel and I will be meeting with vendors, and I’ll finally get to see Falkner Winery. We have a reservation for lunch at the winery’s Pinnacle Restaurant too.

I found several photographers that I was really impressed with, and we are meeting with a couple of them. I wonder if it’s typical to meet with several or if I’m being silly? Anyone been through this? I just think a photographer is such a vital part of this … you want someone who makes you feel comfortable, you know? We are only meeting with one wedding florist and one cake person (hmm. I guess I could use the word “baker”, right?). I’d love to meet with the guitarist as well, but perhaps we’ll save that for next time. I will be playing one tune with him … although what hasn’t been decided upon.

Yes. I am playing at my own daughter’s wedding. Woo hoo!
