Got Better

May 10th, 2017 at 01:42 pm

I'm much better today -- in fact, I got better yesterday afternoon. The cold that I thought was brewing just went away. Weird, but good. Maybe it was just fatigue?

Had a very quiet day yesterday, but went to my grandson's orchestra concert in the evening. He is in the highest level orchestra now, so we have to listen to all the little ones before we get to his performance. Very hard on the ears. But thrilling to see and hear how well he is doing. He may be concertmaster next year -- the youngest ever!

He had apparently had a long day, because his cheeks and ears were glowing with fatigue, and his eyes were glazed. Yet he did not appear to miss a note -- sat on the edge of his seat and sawed away on his violin. I was close enough so that I could hear him individually, and man, has he gotten good! And he obviously takes such responsibility to perform well.

The disappointment of the evening was the behavior of the audience. They were so noisy! Surely at times the performers could not hear themselves! Some of was from the kids who were not playing, but it was adults, too! Thank goodness most of them left after the little ones played. I shake my head at the lack of civility. And I live in a "cultured" suburb.

On the financial front, yesterday was a no-spend day. I actually got a little extra income, in the form of a $6 payment from Pine Cone.

Today's menu: Breakfast - oatmeal. Lunch - tilapia & peas. Dinner - lasagna casserole & broccoli.

Not planning to cook today, but I may make some granola if I have all the ingredients.

    Glad you are feeling better. I've notice disrespect by audiences for years. It's like people forget they aren't the only ones in the room.

    I agree with you two wise women. A few years ago at DD's band concert I risked social ostracism by telling two different groups of parents to be quiet. It's so disrespectful. Glad you're feeling better, CB.

    Glad you are feeling better. Fatigue can really play havoc with one's system.

    I think overall we are a society have become rude when it comes to things like these concerts and other gatherings. I guess folks aren't brought up being told how to behave or they don't understand how disconcerting it is when there is all this noise, not only to those who wish to listen and enjoy a performance, but also to those giving the performance. Glad the grandson is improving on the instrument. This may turn into a lifelong pleasure for him.
