Sunday Blues

Tonight I attended the Minnesota Youth Symphonies concert at the invitation of my good friend whom I've known since junior high. Her daughter is a violinist in one of the symphony orchestras. These kids were amazing! I was very impressed by them and enjoyed the concert immensely.

Otherwise, my weekend was pretty low key. I did some window shopping at the mall on Saturday and I visited with my friend M who recently had surgery. It was nice to spend time with her and her family as usual. They are good friends.

I'm not really keen on heading back to work tomorrow, but it gives me a diversion from thinking about Mom. We are supposed to have an ice storm tomorrow. That should make the commute to and from work very exciting to say the least. I'm growing weary of winter. Today we had a taste of spring; it was near 40 degrees. I hate these teasers, I just want the warmth and sunshine of spring.

I'm glad you had a good time at the symphony. It never ceases to amaze me what kids are able to achieve.

Be careful in that ice storm. Wouldn't it be too bad if you couldn't get into work and you had to take a day off because of bad weather? I'm ready for spring too. I've had enough of this cold stuff!

Ice storms for me equal an automatic day off. My rule. :)

Glad you enjoyed the symphony. It sounds nice.

Please be careful on your commute! It is too warm here, we have fog/mist, but no icing.
