Is it really Monday?

I’m afraid so. Where did the weekend go?

Maybe some of you have today off work, it being Columbus Day & all. There’s no school today for us, but all the teachers have a big inservice to attend at a neighboring district. Too bad, though: I won’t be there. I have two appointments this morning. Rats.

:P

Had rehearsal all afternoon on Saturday. Driving through the wilderness on my way to school, I noticed that the leaves are starting to turn. Fall has arrived in Ohio. Pretty. (Clicky)

My phone-studded piano during rehearsal.

Saturday night was Rockband 2 at #1 Son’s house. A lovely time was had by all, and I scored my very first 100%. The Rat rocked. So did Seamus, especially on the drums. And Lars “Testify”-ed to the amazement of all. Being a musician is fun; having sons who are also musicians is really fun. That they will invite their mama to make music with them is truly awesome icing. Sorry about the blurry photo…some of you will recognize the little girl to my left. Great fun.

Jake also had his turn beforehand:

And last night, RD and Bonnie took the Thriller and me to the Barn Restaurant for a belated birthday dinner. It was a fantastic time. Lots of laughing, talking, eating. And eating and more eating. It was great. I walked out with a box of their to-die-for cornbread mix, too, which I haven’t had for about 20 years. Yummy! Our fiends are awesome indeed.

And that was my weekend. Went by all too fast. But alas, now I must start working before my first appointment. A paper due tomorrow, and I haven’t even started. This is all getting really, really old…

Happy Monday!

Garsh if I am going to homesick it’s always in the fall. I love fall. *sigh* Enjoy! Rockband 2 looks like fun, is that like Guitar Hero? I’ve never done either but they sound fun!

Fall has arrived here in the west too but no colors like back home just cooler temps, thank god, we have not seen the 100’s in a wcouple of weeks. It is nice going to football games in shorts and a t-shirt though.

mathman, if you ever drive from Phoenix to California on the Interstate, upon entering CA the first little town you go through is Blythe. I lived there for 8 years. When I first got there I thought it was ugly but now I miss the desert and the desert weather. The sunsets and starry skies especially!

We also had a great time Sunday evening! The food was fine but the fun and fellowship were the high point!
