Did You Miss Me?

The last couple of weeks have been really busy. I worked in Richmond the last week of November, which meant I got to see my older daughter. We went for sushi, of course, at Ichiban, the wonderful sushi restaurant I've written about here before. One of my stores had a Curves in the parking lot - always a good thing - so I got to work out there. One of their members made a picture quilt of the ladies-working-out that many Curves have painted as a mural on their wall. It is quite neat; the picture I took does not do it justice.

When I returned from Richmond, I put the Escaper in the shop for a water pump and went off to Tennessee for Danny's niece's wedding. All the pictures I took were of the wedding, so I don't have anything from that trip to post here. I saw LOTS of places I'd like to stop and investigate on future trips to Tennessee, though, when time is more flexible.

The motorhome was not ready when we got home; fortunately my work this week was in Charlottesville, where my friend Sue lives. We went to a concert, "Music of Early Modern Europe" at the University of Virginia.
The UVA Early Music Ensemble plays on either period instruments or reproductions, and we got to hear cornetto and sackbut and viola da gamba, as well as baroque music on more familiar instruments. It would have been rude to be flashing my camera during the performance, but I did catch the stage during intermission.



The mural is behind the stage. It's the School of Athens -
and we do wonder how they got bound books and modern slates waaaay back then.









And this is just to show: if you are owned by a cat or two and you need to cover your windows, do not get mini-blinds. Mini-blinds and cats do not mix well; the cat always wins.
