Weekend Update

1. The gig yesterday went very well….it was probably the best we’ve sounded musically in public in thus far. And, thankfully, we were able to play inside, which was good for us and for the people at the festival, as they had a nice cool place to relax and listen to our set. here’s a pic from the festivities!

2. Today was not great. We had to get a tire replaced on the Hyundai (only because I happened to notice that it was totally bald), which led us to suspect that there may be a problem with the suspension or the alignment as the rest of the tires were just fine. So, we had to get a tire at Sam’s, and it took them 1.5 hours to change one tire. On a high note, we walked over to PetsMart and bought Shelli a brush, and we were able to get two or three week’s worth of groceries, so it wasn’t an entirely terrible trip. On a low note, though, unfortunately, I have to drop the car off at the dealership Tuesday. But, at least if it’s the suspension, it will be covered by warranty.

3. I made Joey an Excellent send-off meal tonight! I roasted some sweet potato fries (sliced thinly and roasted in a 450 degree oven for 20 or 30 minutes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and some paprika this time). We also bought some 93% lean ground turkey at Sam’s and we made turkey burgers (just added some egg, bread crumbs, finely chopped onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper). Here are pics of the fries in progress and of the finished plate!

I love it when we have a successful meal to show for some hard work! Tomorrow, I’m helping a friend with a mass-mailing that she’s doing for a festival that their new church is hosting on Saturday, which will be fun. We’re also getting a break from rehearsal on Thursday night, so I’ll have plenty of time this week to work on my Market Bag! I’ll print the pattern off tomorrow, and will start it tomorrow night after I get home. I’m so excited!
