Well, I've taken care of the catching up on my sleep part of my vacation.

Fed the ravening hordes, and am making pesto mac and cheese (from a box). I hope that it's good.

I'm going to a jazz concert tonight at the college with a friend. At first, she really wanted to go out to dinner, and I didn't want to spend the money, but said yes because she was insistent. But then she texted me yesterday, saying that she couldn't afford it. Works for me.

I want to stop at work before the concert to change my phone and e-mail messages saying that I'm on vacation, so I need to throw myself together soon.

Oh, I forgot to say that the temperature dropped today and was 39 degrees F. I can't complain though because it was warm for so long.

I've got the University of Illinois' Krannert Center and Illinois State University's Center for the Performing Arts bookmarked and liked their Facebook pages. One thing that I like about living in the boonies is the cost of living. The concert tonight was $20. (I was in the cheap seats, but I still had a good view of the stage and could hear well.) Krannert Center's concerts are $10 (and some are free). Not sure about ISU, but the prices are probably comparable. I can only imagine how much a similar concert would cost in Chicago.

I'm back from the concert (Illinois Symphony and ISU Madrigal Singers) in Springfield. It was great fun with singalongs and a small British flag to wave. (It was a British-themed evening.) The best part, though, was the encore, which was Danny Boy, and the Madrigal Singers sang the last verse a cappella. Sublime. (I've got to rustle up the money to take voice lessons again. I'd love to sing in a chorus.)

[ profile] gurdonark mentioning seeing a classical guitarist the other day, and that reminded me that there's a classical guitar group in Springfield (you never know what you'll find in Springfield!) that holds concerts. There was one tonight to which I went. It was by the Avanti Guitar Trio, and it was wonderful to hear three guitars playing in harmony. It also is giving me a lot of incentive to practice :) There's another concert by a different guitarist next month. I also found out that the Springfield Symphony is playing with the ISU Madrigal Singers next week. I probably shouldn't have spent the money, but I bought a ticket because hey, madrigal singers! And the ticket cost only $20 in the "cheap seats".
