Sunday Matters: It’s Showtime!

Sunday Matters

Production week for The Sound of Music is almost done. It’s been a full week of rehearsals and The Girl has one more show tonight and that’s that!

We got to see the show yesterday. It’s always fun to see it all come together. The Girl was a festival singer, one of ten girls singing. She really wants a lead in Peter Pan. We’ll see if she even gets in. The sign-up line begins at 4 am on Wednesday. Hello!

I will try to share pics from The Sound of Music later, but they banned cameras backstage so the pickin’s may be slim.

Right Now:

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Since we have the show going on, we plan to celebrate next weekend.  Today, we will hit church and then back to the stage we go.

This Week:

Did I mention that sign-ups for Peter Pan are at 4 am on Wednesday morning? Good Gawd! I will be totally dead at work but she really wants in.


I am going to finish A Little Life this week if it kills me. I’ve been savoring it but I really need to finish it up so I can move on to other books.

I am listening to Luckiest Girl Alive and although it started off a little bumpy, I am really into it now. This is the book that Reese Witherspoon just optioned so we’ll see if it becomes a movie soon.

Just started Nantucket by Nan Rossiter. It IS summer after all. Gotta get a summery read in before the Atlas Shrugged read along! We’ve got seven readers signed up so far. Will you join us?

Not much this week. My secret hiding spot at work was in-use all week so I could not watch Mad Men at all. I did see a little bit of Orange is the New Black but it’s not pulling me in this season.


I made a really great chicken and pasta dish made entirely from leftovers. I had cooked-up chicken breasts a few days before and just sliced them up with fresh peas, garlic and olive oil, a spoonful of cream cheese for flavor, a dab of tomato paste, and then tossed with pasta and Parmesan cheese.

But, I haven’t made anything since! Production week, production week. No cooking goes on during this week.

Grateful for:

As much as I love seeing the show, I am so glad when production week is over. These days, I find myself getting all worked-up when my calendar is full so it’s nice to finally have it behind us. At least for a little while.  I am grateful that after tonight’s show, we are done until September!

What’s going on in your world this weekend?

A few more pics…

As I mentioned in my previous post, we have a serious lack of photos from this show (Annie) due to the photo ban.  However, I forget about the two photos I purchased.

This is of The Teen as Rooster on stage. Photos taken by Nancy’s Portraits.

And because I am a good sport, here is a really old pic from the first time he did Annie. He was Wacky, the dummy. Check out my shirt. Ugh.
