Hallo, liebe Leute! I trust you're all doing well this abnormally warm week before Christmas. The pictures I have for you today are rather scarce in number, but it has been manageably busy time since I last wrote. (Yes, I consider blog-writing to be like writing a letter, but it saves time because I write to everyone at once!)
This seems to be my time to catch up on shows and movies, which I am not about to complain about. The list begins: a friend and I went to see a local production of "Annie" last Friday, which I am slightly embarrassed to say was the first time I had seen it all the way through! Another friend of mine was one of the performers and did a stunning job, of course :). The show itself was held in a small theater with Victorian design, which created a rather intimate environment.
I had my own performance this past Thursday, just the second of the season - late winter/spring will be much crazier! (I relish the challenge; let's hope I actually manage to make it through.) The school winter concert went well enough, us being a small orchestra.
Friday was the premier of The Hobbit, which I was eagerly anticipating. If I had been allowed, I would have gone to the midnight showing... ah, parents. You have to love them. But that's fine, because I saw it FRIDAY night instead! If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend doing so - it was just what you could have asked for, if not more. Oh, but the music - during the Misty Mountains song (not sure of the proper title), I could have wept; it was beautifully developed.
This coming week, I will be seeing the new Lincoln movie and Les Miserables as well, and will be sure to share my opinion with you! And a second showing of The Hobbit may be in order...
Last tidbit: we (finally) got our Christmas tree yesterday! It has lights, the star, and tinsel, but no ornaments as of yet. Soon!
Until then, merry Christmas!
