My son came home to see his grandfather but arrived too late. Because he lives in the far north and the far west of our country, his travel time was very lengthy. He left work as soon as I called him , packed and drove two hours to the airport. He then caught three connecting flights to make it here in less than 24 hours. We did not tell anyone he was coming and when his grandmother saw him she was speechless and just hugged him.
His dad and grandmother really appreciated his coming home. We had quiet family evenings playing board games and eating take out food.
We also had a mother and son evening at the Symphony. My son surprised me with tickets to a concert with Lang Lang. He is the "rock star" of classical music. The concert was superb. It was a relaxing break from a very stressful week.
It was also the perfect reason to wear my opera coat I made a few years ago. I felt so glamourous.
It is MacCalls 5480 . I made from black silk Peau du Soi found on sale for $6.00/yard. The bemberg lining cost me more . So did the buttons! I made it for my daughter at a time when she had many evening events. This was the first time I had an event!
I am the shortest one in the family.
He can always make me laugh!
The venue was perfect. The seats were perfect. The music was Beethoven 3 and Mendelssohn.
Music truly does soothe, relax and heal the soul.
