Had a pretty good weekend, even if it wasn't as relaxing as I like my weekends to be(minimal time in the Al Bundy pose on the couch). We had two great shows of Les Mis this weekend, with 550 folks Friday night, and almost 800 for the Saturday night show. We expect we will get at least that many for next weekends shows, which is nice. Ticket sales have already covered our budget, so everything from here on out pads the Mid-Columbia Musical Theaters coffers for the future.
There was wine, and time spent with my Mom, and a great Sunday brunch at Sage Port Grille.
I also decided to buy a new book this weekend. I rarely buy new books, especially hardcovers, because I can pickup 5-6 2nd hand paperbacks for the price of a hardcover, but I make exceptions when the new Patrica Briggs book comes out. The newest book in the Mercy Thompson series came out last week, and while dress rehearsals kept me from attending the book signing at Hastings last Tuesday night, I was able to get in the weekend and pick-up one of the extra signed copies she leaves behind.
We'll see if I make this book last a few days or not.
There was one discordant note involving one of my chickens this weekend, but I am still trying work through what went wrong there, and just how much of it is my fault.
More on that later, I guess.
