heftonesschulersokemos.jpgTonight, Brian and I had our first performance for Schuler Books. It looks as though it will not be the last and we are delighted about that. This performance was at the Meridian Mall in Okemos, in what Brian would call my “Old Stomping Grounds.” I was raised in this area, before there was a mall there.

The weather was pretty miserable. Brian spent far too long shoveling snow today, and the wind kept blowing it around. I heard it was over a foot in some places near Detroit (they often get it worse than we do) but here it appeared more like four inches/10cm at a non-scientific glance.

Fortunately, this location is in a well-plowed area and my computer students live in that general neck o’the woods. I did some publicity including letting my class know we would be there. I think I brought in 8 or so die-hard fans, including my Goddaughter, Sara, who is home from College on break. It was so good to see everyone come by.

I have been fighting this sinus bug for way too long, but my voice came through for me. We sang for 2 hours and although I had to pay attention to my voice, I was able to do my part with surprisingly little trouble. I was delighted.

However, I guess my stamina is still not up to par, because we came home, ate dinner, and I promptly fell asleep on the couch for hours. I woke up when the snowplows went by about quarter to 2am. I zonked out like a toddler after a long play date!!!

Monday I have no appointments outside the home. I intend to work from the couch in my pajamas if at all possible. We may have a visitor after dinner in which case I guess I’ll have to dress by then… but I am looking forward to not having to go out at all. Less is more when there is snow on the ground.

I hope all of you are warm and safe, and have very little to shovel if you are in a cold area. I hope to make a big vat of soup tomorrow (maybe cabbage and tomato, and chick peas… sort of a vegetarian Italian idea). I wish you comfort and low stress as we head into the thick of the over-scheduled part of the year.
