Resting in Ogunquit
Here we are in a lovely motel in Ogunquit, ME, enjoying a couple of days of sheer R&R after a very full December. A funny thing for someone who is retired to say, isn't it? But it is true -- all of our self-chosen volunteer work and activity can sometimes really pile up and we become overwhelmed. Katie and Savanna are downstairs, and we are enjoying walks by the ocean, the hot tub and pool, meals either in our room (we brought Christmas Day leftovers) or in local restaurants, reading, watching basketball in the TV (my favorite team, the UNC Tarheels had a great game against Rutgers in Madison Square Garden last night). We return home later today. Tonight we'll rehearse the Fonseca Afro-Brazilian Mass with the Brattleboro Concert Choir. Thursday we'll host the grandkids for an overnight and go to Northhampton on Friday to see Miriam in a dance program at The Academy and then return to Brattleboro for the wonderful New Years Eve concert by the Amidon Family and Nightengale.
