So, I finished my dining room. It looks awesome, and for now I'm just leaving the paneling alone. Pictures forthcoming, but I'd like to try and finish making the curtains, first. (I've had the fabric for almost a year. Yeah. Can you say procrastination?)
Sophia is sick. Last night she was running a high fever, and insisted on snuggling up next to me all night. Since it was already pretty hot in the house (no A/C, remember?) I didn't get much sleep, having a little heater right next to me.
Sick or not, we still went wild blueberry picking today. This time I actually got a lot. I could maybe make some blueberry jam if I knew how. Instead, we'll probably just do blueberry muffins. Yum!
Apparently, the northern lights have been on the last several nights. Couldn't see them from my house, but a lot of friends went out to Lake Superior and saw them. I think we'll try that tonight. I have always wanted to see them. Cross your fingers that we didn't miss the spectacle!
I sang in a benefit concert last week with a bunch of other local artists. I sang a duet with the university's new choir director, who happens to be a choir friend from way back in the BYU days. We have loved having him and his wife and kids in town!
Here's a picture from the concert:
And if you want to take a listen, go here. We sang Tonight from West Side Story. I also did a solo, but apparently the recording didn't work for part of the first half of the concert, so that didn't record.
Otherwise, we've just been trying to enjoy the summer. I can't believe it's already August and almost time to think about going back to school! (We don't go back till after Labor Day.) Now it's time to make the most of the summer we have left and head to the beach a little more often.
Have a great day!
