She's so pretty -- again, the colors called to me.
In other news, the boy child had last week off for spring break, so not as much stitching done. He had his rehearsal with his accompanist for his NYSSMA audition last Monday. (This is the audition that determines whether one goes to All State or Area All State or nothing.) The boy child is not as well prepared this year as he was last year -- I think the hs musical took away from his practice too much. :(
Some of you have asked me to post a video of the boy child playing his classical pieces. Well, the boy child refuses to let me do so with this piece since he's not as ready as he'd like to be. But I thought in case you were curious as to what he's playing for his NYSSMA piece, I'd post this -- a youtube video of the piece. The boy child will only have piano accompaniment, not an orchestra as in the video. And he won't be playing the piece as fast either! But you'll get an idea of what he's playing at least.
Hope that works!
We had a nice, quiet Easter. The father type is on antibiotics -- he was forced to go to the doctor kicking and screaming on Friday after resisting the idea all week and was diagnosed with bronchitis and possibly walking pneumonia. Silly boy would have recovered much more quickly if he'd gone sooner! But the father type was up to cooking the ham for Easter, and I did the various side dishes to go with it. The boy child had lots of Easter candy, as did the grownups. :D
Here's Mia looking wary at the foot of the table all set up with Easter dinner. She seemed a bit flustered by all the Easter activity going on.
I hope everyone had a good Easter or passover. Happy Anzac Day (is that what you say?) to those of you on the other side of the world. Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. It's wonderful to be part of our community of stitchers and bloggers!
