I think I had one of the best weekends EVER.
- It started off with finding out a new book by my all-time favorite author just arrived at the library. *happy dance*
- On Thursday, I ended up in both the Lewiston Morning Tribune AND the Clearwater Tribune; both advertising my upcoming performance.
- On Saturday, at the Cafe Sage, I had one of the best performances I’ve done in a while. The crowd was AWESOME! I feel truly spoiled now… Most of the places I play are “sports bar” type venues: they’re noisy because people come to talk, to drink, to watch the game — and I’m merely background entertainment that’s there IF there happens to be someone interested in listening. Which is fine, I have no problem with that; it goes with the territory. But at this little Cafe? Bliss. Every soul in the establishment was there to watch and listen to an entertainer. (And the room acoustics were great!) They were so respectful! I truly enjoyed getting to play there, and left feeling energized.
- I re-discovered hand embroidery. It’s been pretty fun figuring out everything again. The last time I did any embroidery I was probably 10 years old, and while I enjoyed it, I just didn’t have the patience for it. I’ve been doing little bits to be framed and hung on the wall and just having a blast with it.
Ah, what a great weekend.
This week I have two performances — I’ll be at Roger’s Bakery in College Place on Wednesday, from 5:30 to 7:30; and then I’ll be at Mace Mead Works in Dayton on Saturday night from 8pm on. Maybe I’ll see you there?
