Hello friends! I'm writing to you today from a hotel room in Tampa, Florida. That is not very far from where I actually live. In case you were wondering, no - I don't just sometimes stay in a hotel instead of in my house.
My son is in the All State Honors Band (for middle schoolers). This sort of makes me proud.
It makes me so proud I could just burst.
It also makes for a very fun weekend. The All State bands and choruses all come together during the Florida Music Educators Association's annual conference. That means I get to spend my weekend around music teachers, listen to fantastically talented kids making music, attend a few classes (if I want), shop for all the music I could want and eat pizza downtown.
Also, I could just stay in a quiet hotel room with no dishes to wash while Andrew has band practice.
Guess which one I picked?
Yeah. I'm not always an exciting person.
I'm going to get a ton of homework done, though. That's exciting in my book.
It's freezing cold here today. We've had such roller coaster weather - more so than a usual Florida winter. I didn't even really know what to pack for the weekend, but I knew I wanted to wear one of those darling cowls that all the girls seem to be wearing.
So I made one.
I know you can't see it very well, so I will tell you that one side is a lovely gray linen and the other side is a light weight, dark-ish taupe cotton with gray, flowery vines. I like it a lot and it's really warm, which is good. At least my neck is not covered in goosebumps.
My toes are a little jealous of that.
