Good day to all!
Reading all your posts is part of my daily go-to. I hesitate posting, as most of the time (not going to gigs or going out), my routine is pretty predictable and uninteresting. Yours, on the other hand, !!
Work has been busy but not crazy. We have no plans for this three-day weekend. We were supposed to be camping at a regional park in the high desert, with the South West Bluegrass Association, one of the two member campouts/jams held each year. This one, of course, was cancelled. Maybe sometime in the three days, we can meet somewhere outside with our fiddler and have a good time jamming with her.
I think I mentioned, I have kept my two-week vacation on the books. Instead of driving up north to camp and jam at the Father's Day Bluegrass Festival (cancelled), we will camp locally at a rustic mountain campground. We took the kids there several times, with a pop-up trailer, when they were growing up. Dh and I have always liked this campground. There are no hookups for electrical or water -- we will be "dry camping". It abuts a large meadow and a large mountain rises at the far side of the meadow. Dirt roads wind around the area, for miles. One can travel on dusty roads to explore. I don't think we will take the new vehicle on those, will probably just enjoy the camping experience and being away. I look forward to sniffing the scent of pine trees and sage and the outdoors. Hearing crows and other birds calling. Smelling campfires. We may also take a couple trips to Big Bear City and Big Bear Lake, about 20 min from the campground, over Onyx Summit.
We joined a Sabbath School this morning, The Gathering Place, via Zoom. We have tuned in the past couple Sabbaths. This Sabbath, we led a one-song "song service." It was weird via Zoom. Zoom is mainly for meetings. It automatically switches focus on the person who is the loudest at the meeting, to allow for different ppl to talk. Well, that wasn't going to work with a song service! Dh and I played instruments and I sang the four verses of Amazing Grace, while everyone muted and sang or played along. It was sad not to be able to hear others sing and play along, but it was, I suppose, an acceptable substitute. We have missed doing music for, and with, people. Dh is still online with them, after the Sabbath School, chatting and catching up with the members (many are medical professionals) and updates with the local hospital, and following the hospital and community Covid responses, as they are in constant flux. As we are all aware of, here in the Break room.
Anyway, please stay healthy. Have a good day.
