The question is: Did anything get done in October? I had very specific plans.
Charlie brought down 5 boxes of books, mostly children’s books, from the attic. My goal to donate at least 50 to a rummage sale was not accomplished.
The only thing I did was to salvage my baby book from the pile. How pathetic! I must simply box them and deliver them.
I planned to stain the interior doors that have not yet been stained. This just never happened. Again — pathetic!!
Finally the door to the entrance of the laundry did not get hung.
Consequently I did not make any progress on my 101 in 1001 list.
Entertainment is the area where I did have a lot of success.
Charlie and I have went to see the newest remake of A Star is Born with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
I thought the film and the music were very good. Bradley Cooper played his part well and can actually sing also.
Sug and I went to going to see a touring company production Les Miserables. This production was not as good as the other two I had seen. The turntable on the stage had been omitted and I felt it hurt the performance.
Then Charlie and I went headed to the Baltimore Symphony to
see hear Tony DeSare playing the piano and singing.
He was loads of fun and could really, really play the piano. So much fun.
We did host a costume party in October.
The invitation suggested guests come in an international costume.
There were lots of ladies in kimonos.
The three of us have joined a choir for Christmas comprised of members from a number of churches in our area.
We have been rehearsing and listening to our audio files so we’ll be ready for our performance early in December.
Finally the most successful task was Sug’s trip to Guatemala where she painted classrooms and built a swingset.
Sug is planning to spend more and more time in Guatemala working to improve the mission school near Antigua.
While we didn’t actually get a lot of projects completed last month we did have loads of fun. So much fun in fact that I’m making a master calendar so we can plan some more get-togethers.
Do you prefer intimate gatherings or large ones?
