Yesterday was a moderately productive day. (And on Friday, I went to my employers Christmas party. It was surprisingly fun!)
So yesterday, we got up, took the car to the shop, walked to Strosniders, Fresh Fields and Borders. Yay, bookstore. I [heart] Silver Spring. I read a book on weather pattern and musicians who believe in aliens, and picked up Miles Davis’ autobiography and a few CDs:
- Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong’s Ella and Louis (Verve)
- Ella Fitzgerald & Billie Holiday’s At Newport (Verve)
- Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew (Columbia)
- Charles Mingus’ Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus (Impulse)
I think I am done with the rock. I’ve learned what I can from it. But the time has come to learn something new before it simply bores me to no end. I think it’s jazz this time. I am getting in to it and begining to seriously understand it.
Then our general contactor came over to finalize some details and we put down our deposit. We’re actually breaking ground (or rather wall) tomorrow after work and will start replacing water pipes. I am beside myself.
Tonight we went to Westminster, MD. Man, it’s a trek. Michelle and Kris had their pre-Christmas/Meet the Parents night. It was fun and Kris is one mean cook. Hot damn. There was a lot of sports going on. So needless to say, the rest of us were in our own little world. And it snowed there breifly. It’s crazy it’s 60+ miles from DC.
