Wow, that weekend went by quickly. I spent a bit of it working. I have a large project in that is time-sensitive, and I took it on knowing the weekend was going to be sacrificed to some extent. I’m glad I spent those few hours on the project – I think I can wrap it up today.
Good thing – I have another client project that I want to get out today, as well. I got the first draft done on Friday, but wanted it to sit a bit before I sent it out. It never hurts to approach it after a few days of rest.
The weekend wasn’t a total wash. We tended to errands on Saturday, then went to see Tower Heist. Finally they’ve billed a movie as a comedy that was actually funny. Hilarious movie. Great performances, especially by Alan Alda.
Yesterday I worked a bit in the afternoon after spending a few hours cleaning (yes, I cleaned – what’s this world coming to?). We went over to Molly Maguire’s for dinner, and happened upon not the usual Irish music sessions, but a benefit for the Irish radio station. There were tons of performers, and some exceptional fiddle playing. I’m talking world-class fiddle playing. Some great pub songs (bawdy and fun), and a performance on fiddle by a young man (I’m guessing ten or eleven) that was so heartfelt. How do you do that at such a young age?
Then there was the redheaded boy, about five years old, who was doing the jig with the other girls in his dance class. Adorable!
Home to see football. Ugh. Let me just say there were some calls by the officials that had even the announcers going “Huh?” We lost by a hair, and thanks to a holding call that was clearly missed by the officials. He had his arm out and his hand wrapped up in our defender as he caught the ball – and no flag. Alas, we live to scrap another day.
The work is laid out before me today, so I’m going to get right to it.
What’s happening in your world this week? How was the weekend?
