It has been a stressful week (but again successful). I didn't have a Rock n Bows intensive planned this year as I couldn't fit a full week of closing studio in the month of August. (There is one next August). I canceled it last year as I just wasn't feeling it, with various things in my personal world and health exhausting me I know it was the right decision. But this week, the bulk of my fiddlers had begged cajoled bullied (said tongue in cheek) to do SOMETHING. soooooooo......... a 10 hour rock intensive. No performance, no picnic. Just lots of fun rock and pop music with a group of great musicians. 5 hours yesterday and today. Today will be less stressful (yesterday DH and I had instrument set up and space staging and we tend to bicker) Now the kids (and some adults too) know the music, know the way the group works and of course know that Mr J is bringing pizza today!
We also planned (and I purchased last night) music for the year of ensemble and next summers big Rock Intensive) so it is another success! Especially that all the new members left smiling!
I also haven't been going to SB as I have been using up all the Stok Cold brewed coffee I got with high value coupons AND making my own cold brew with my large stash of SB cafe Verona. My cupboards are going to be bare when the summer is over. But I am saving money by not spending any. With DH still not working that is how I am being proactive.
Last success was going out in the garden just before it got too dark and picking this.
