We got back from the tour and picked up Ted. He really seemed to enjoy staying at Nancy’s townhouse. She has lots of nice windows to look out of – not like this dark, dismal place we are renting until we get our house built.
I had a very busy and fun December. The gigs ranged from holiday pops concerts with several different orchestras, to jazz combo gigs at holiday parties, to Amahl and the Night Visitors, to West Side Story at the Lyric Theater. We finally had a chance to work on our house plans. At the end of the month we met with the owner of a design-build firm and he felt that they would be able to build our house within our budget. This company is known for their quality work and they seem to build in a style that we like. I’m very excited. Finally something is happening!
