No Dancing Tonight

Friday, August 25th, 2006

Eudora at New AladdinsI was scheduled to dance at the Aladdin’s Delight restaurant in Haslett tonight. Unfortunately, that location is recently closed. The restaurant called New Aladdins in Frandor is still open.

I’ll be dancing at Frandor some “First Friday” but I don’t know when yet. Meanwhile, for those who may have been planning to come tonight, you’ll need other plans. I think I called all those who had told me out loud they thought they would be there.

Knit-Together in Kalamazoo at Music Festival?

Friday, August 25th, 2006

Brian and I will be singing (as The Fabulous Heftones) on Saturday at 5:45pm in Kalamazoo. The location is The Kalamazoo Nature Center, and the event is Coopers Glen Music Festival.

Knit in at CD ReleaseIs anyone out there interested in knitting together at some point during the festival? Of course I’m booked a bit before and a bit after our performance (preparation and CD sales will take up that time) but if anyone out there is planning to come, do drop me a comment or email. We will be leaving for Kalamazoo on Saturday morning and I won’t have email for a couple of days during the festival, if past similar events are a good predictor. Even if there is a connection, we’ll probably be too busy to get out the laptops.

I know that Lynne Sahlgren is a fiber person since she was at the Michigan Fiber Fest last weekend. She will be at the festival, though I suspect she may be a very busy volunteer with little free time. However, I am thinking maybe we could have at least a short get-together for knitting/crocheting/embroidering/etc. time either Saturday after our performance or even on Sunday if other folks are staying overnight as we are. Takers?

I had such fun with the small group of knitters in June, at our CD release party. I’m crossing fingers we can do it again…

Mom’s Birthday

Friday, August 25th, 2006

Mom on her 72nd BirthdayMy mother’s birthday was last Monday. She had a gathering of around a dozen of us at her house for dessert… Me, Mom and a good number of her friends. Some of those friends we’ve known since I was in elementary school or just thereafter. It was wonderful.

Friday we celebrate again. Eric and Diana (my only brother and his wife, the incredible knitting tester among other things) are coming up to Lansing. We will meet at Altu’s restaurant for lunch. Ironically, Altu’s parents are visiting this week but they are not in Lansing right now so we may miss them. It would be so cool to have my mom meet her mom. As I like to say, “I’m not in charge.” It happens or it doesn’t and right now we can’t know.

I took this photo of my mom at her party last week Monday. Doesn’t she look pretty?
