Home Cookin'

My friends Amy and Kate came by today and we all cooked dinner. The recipe called for red snapper, but Anne Arundel Seafood didn't have that, so we substituted grouper instead. It turned out fantastically. The fish was super fresh, and the recipe was excellent as well, especially when we added local corn on the cob to the mix. I am hoping I can duplicate this procedure myself in the future by preparing the tomato mixture ahead and cooking the fish at dinner time. In any case, give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.

Osteopathy Saves the Day

My appointment with Dr. Kucine yesterday should give me a better shot at the next week or so. I didn't expect I would be able to get to these appointments (I'll have another in 2 weeks) but some friendly and helpful church folks offered to get me there and back so I would not have to drive such a large distance. Ernie Johnson got me to and from my appointment and we met up with his wife and grand-daughter to eat at Hunan Annapolis afterwards. It was really a lot of fun.

Thanks Ernie!

Already Feeling the Hit

My health situation is so discouraging. When my parents leave for vacation it becomes so clear that, not only can I not work and live a normal life; I am not even remotely close to being able to do it. I spent day one of my folks' trip basically just sitting in a chair. Why? It took about 7 minutes longer to pick out a steak at Giant than I could afford. I can still feel the effects today in fact, but I should have a friend coming by to help me out at least. It's all the normal little abberations that happen over the course of a day or week that I simply cannot withstand.

Still Reeling

I'm still feeling pretty awful from the recital. That's the way this condition is, but it isn't something I will ever really get used to. Yesterday all I did was stare at the computer screen with a file open, then watch a movie later, which wasn't all that easy to do. Today is better than that, but still not great. Hopefully things will turn around very soon. The folks head out on their trip in just a few days now so I'll have to be able to handle things here.

Recital Success

I'm exhausted from the recital, but it was definitely worth it. I got a lot of really positive comments and, after hearing myself on a recording after, was able to overcome some of the hurdles I have faced in the past. If I had the equipment or know-how to post the recording here I'd do it, but alas, I do not possess those abilities. Anybody do that sort of thing?

Summer Recital

I'll be in a voice recital held by my new teacher on Sunday, June 12th at 3:00pm. Anyone interested in attending can just send me an email or call for more information. I'll be performing a piece I have sung in the past, but I feel like this is a good way to get back into the flow of things.
