08/04/2008 Entry: "Weekend Wrap-Up"

It's been quite some time since I did a weekend wrap-up. Here's what I got...

On Friday after work, a bunch of people from church came by the house and worked on the Lobster Festival float. It was designed to look like a huge lobster trap. Dwane put a lot of time in before the build, so it really didn't take much time. It looked really nice. If I can find an online photo somewhere, I'll post a link.

On Saturday I played a gig in some town. I can't even remember where it was. Basically, go to Lincoln ME and go east a little. It was between 2.5 and three hours to drive there. I picked Paddy up at 7am, and we headed out. The gig started at about 11am, and they kept asking us to play more quietly. We played really softly. In fact, most of our energy was concentrated on keeping the volume down, and not on putting on a good show. I think the people really missed out on what we could do, but unfortunately, that's what the venue could accommodate. We stopped in Bangor on the way home, as Paddy was in the mood for pizza. I got home around 6:30, I think, and then it was pretty much bed.

Sunday, and Matt and I were up at 6:30. We made blueberry muffins, and Matt proceeded to dump most of the blueberries on the floor. Oh well, I added some raspberries to make up for it, and that made up for everything. We had our regular church services, but this week service included a thunder storm and a brief power flicker. Lunch was at Mom's, as usual, and Lisa made a really delicious terriyaki steak. The secret, she said, was the Jack Daniel's marinade. It was really good. We came home, and all had an all too short nap. Then back to church for the "pot providence" supper, and the evening service. I'm still playing bass in the evening church service, and I'm noticing that I'm progressing a little. If the songs don't drift away to some of the more unusual intervals (major 6ths and 7ths), I'm usually ok. Finding some of those strange notes can lose me a little. Then, after church, it was time for bed.

Thus, the weekend ended.

I would love to see that float.

I, too, am a musician, though not full time. I play keyboard and sing for our Praise Band at Church.
