Home again. Hit the ground running since yesterday was A's birthday (10 years old -when did THAT happen?!) and I also have the final week of college commitments to fulfil, including final lessons, student recital, juries and scholarship auditions.
I did, however, find time to make A's cake (something I try to do every year):
She had a lovely birthday despite it being a school/work day, and is certainly enjoying her new Flip video camera (thank you eBay! Gotta love less-than-half-price New In Box items that ship exactly as described!). It's a pretty cool little camera, actually - super easy to use straight out of the box (it even comes with batteries preinstalled!) and she is having a BALL with it.
In the meantime, today I start preparing my next two gigs, so there's still plenty to keep me busy singingwise as well. If I'm honest, I actually prefer being busy, and the calendar this spring actually lined up very nicely to give me just enough time between gigs (it can be hard to dovetail one into another with no break at all). I'm not complaining!
