When April began I had plans which included celebrating birthdays, going to the opera, and celebrating Easter — dates which could not be changed. We succeeded in accomplishing most of the things we set out to do and at least put a dent in the others.
My son celebrated his birthday in April.
Not only was he born in April but his actual birth-day was on a Palm Sunday so I always think of Palm Sunday as a day to also remember his special day.
The party was well-attended and everyone enjoyed their party favors of tiny Turkish coffee cups.
Porgy and Bess at the Baltimore Symphony was fantastic.
Naturally the music is great and the story is poignant, but we were also treated to magnificent singers and actors.
I had high hopes at the beginning of April to finally get back to working on the laundry room.
Three items that needed doing in the laundry room were:
- doors for the closet–still undone,
- door for the entrance–installed,
- baseboard and chair rail trim–still undone.
We had a full and blessed Easter week.
We have been enjoying attending services of different denominations where Charlie has been asked to play their services. It’s interesting to experience the similarities and differences of various places of worship.
Charlie and I have finished five weeks of Argentine tango lessons. We have learned to walk tango-style — I walk backwards — in both parallel and cross pattern.
I can perform ochos and a thing called the “code”. One last class and we’ll try to decide if we should continue. Tango has been a weekly challenge in concentration and performance which I can highly recommend.
All in all April was a busy and productive month. We made some decisions for new projects which will be revealed in May.
