And I made sure to check to see if the bottom border meets -- it does! Love those little chickens (or whatever they are).
Next, a quick TUSAL report for May's new moon.
Love all the colors!
I forgot to post about my framing in my last post. Duh! Went to my LNS a couple of weeks ago, and got a couple of pieces back. Here is Jane Tindall. Love her!
Here's a detail of the frame.
And here's Guarding Eden.
And a frame detail.
Definitely a senior moment when I forgot to post!
We had a very busy, musical weekend this weekend. Friday was the boy child's final NYSSMA audition. We counted the number of times he's done NYSSMA -- it came out to 7 times, from the first year he took double bass in 5th grade. Pretty amazing! Only two of the years were actual All State auditions, this year and last, as only juniors and seniors are allowed to take part in All State. Both the boy child and I feel he didn't do as well this year in his audition -- he messed up on a scale, and felt he was a bit shaky at the beginning of his audition piece. But it sounded pretty good to me through the door. Of course one can never hear very well through a door. lol! We should hear in a week or so what his score was. Fingers crossed!
Sunday was the boy child's non-orchestra concert in NYC. It was at Avery Fisher Hall -- the second time he's performed with his orchestra there. Here's a very blurry picture taken with my cell phone. (Cameras weren't allowed, despite the fact that cameras were actually everywhere.)
You might recognize the Avery Fisher Hall stage from things like Live at Lincoln Center. The boy child is second from the front of the stage in the bass section. Very successful concert, sounded wonderful as always.
Before the concert, the father type and I got to wander the city a bit. We wandered over to Central Park, and I was thrilled to discover that we were only a little ways down from the Dakota building and Strawberry Fields, the memorial to John Lennon in Central Park. So we wandered over there, and of course I had to take a picture. My cell phone did a pretty good job!
If you want to read about Strawberry Fields in Central Park, there's an article about it in Wikipedia. There's also an article about the original Strawberry Field (the one that inspired the song) in Liverpool.
Being a Beatle fan, I was very moved to be at this memorial to John Lennon. When I told the boy child we'd gone there, he was totally jealous. :D (He's a huge Beatle fan too.)
The father type and I also went to the branch of the American Folk Art Museum that is close to Lincoln Center, and I got to see a small quilt exhibit there, which was very enjoyable.
Here's a picture of the boy child in his finery at home before the concert.
He was being silly, in case you can't tell. :D
And finally a couple of pics of the two friends together.
Mia enjoying the open window, and looking back at the boy child through the window.
And the boy child and Mia tussling together on the bed.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I love reading your comments and visiting with you all. Hope you have a great week!
