A Satisfying Sunday

Frosty Sunday morning

Another beautiful day in the neighborhood here on the coast of Maine!  I love the clear coldness on these frosty mornings.  Although 18 degrees yesterday morning was quite a bit colder than I thought it would be.  But nonetheless, at least the ground is firming up and some of the mud is now frozen.  Always a plus.

I had the opportunity to have a jaunt into Portland today to go to the symphony.  Portland Symphony at Merrill Auditorium.  Wonderful program with a fresh, young visiting conductor and as always, the music was wonderful.  Horn concerto by Strauss with a soloist who was one of the original players in the Canadian Brass, Jeff Nelson.  And it never hurts to have a great performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite.  That’s definitely a blast from the past for me.  Stravinsky was one of my father’s favorite composers.  And as always, the Merrill Auditorium was a lovely venue, with excellent acoustics.  Nice afternoon.  After the concert we hit Trader Joe’s so I could score some economical coffee beans, and then home.

The girls were waiting on me for chores, and Jingle let the neighborhood know that I was late in getting down to business!

Jingle voices her complaints!

Back to work for a few days and then Thanksgiving.  Just about my very favorite holiday of the year.
