On Good Friday, my daughter, her husband and their six children came home for their Easter visit. It was a lovely, sunny day and the kids played in the yard while the adults soaked up the sun and chatted among ourselves or over the fence with the neighbours.
The kids have a toy box in my spare bedroom and were in there getting some favourites to take outside. I had forgotten that I had put a pile of school photos on the dresser in there. Usually, the current school pics hang on a little 'birds on a wire' line in my library. I had taken them down at Christmas and never put them back up.
I'm thinking somebody wasn't too happy with this oversight. After everyone had gone home, I found this. ~
Grandma will have our pictures in the library if we have to put them there ourselves! It's not the most chic arrangement but I get the hint.
Of course, I did not see my youngest daughter and granddaughter as they are still living their Brooklyn adventure. Through the miracle of the Internet, I will be able to see my daughter perform live at New York's oldest rock club, The Bitter End. Katie auditioned for and won a spot on the singer/songwriter sessions! She plays at 7pm on Easter Sunday (I know, I know but the entertainment biz does not shut down for holidays) and it will be streamed live. This is an important chance for Katie to have her song writing heard and she is nervous and excited and counting down the minutes until she gets her shot at showing what she can do.
Just to stand on the stage that hosted such talented songwriters as Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary and Neil Diamond is beyond what Katie ever imagined!
If you live in NYC you may want to pop over to Greenwich Village to catch the show. Any of those who want to watch the live feed, tomorrow evening at 7pm, you can find it by clicking Here. It's a short performance, just 15 mins. long.
Maybe, you'd consider saying a teeny, tiny prayer that it all goes well for her!
Happy Easter everyone!!!
Aren't kids funny?! My grandkids are constantly rearranging their pictures on the fridge, always putting theirs first.....like I put them in order of favorites!! I wish your daughter good luck in her performance. Being an old Dylan fan, I can appreciate the sentiment of that stage. Is that 7pm EST? Don't know what time I'll be finished with our family festivities but it would be fun to catch!ReplyDelete
That is 7 pm EST. A Dylan fan you say? An old high school friend of mine produced his Oh Mercy album and my former employee is recording him now.Delete
I'm laughing at your grandkids jockeying for position on your fridge!
Hilarious about the photos - kids crack you up that way, don't they, lol. Good luck to Katie tonight!ReplyDelete
Oh how exciting! Great night for TV...Katie live streaming at 7pm here and Game of Thrones at 9pm! Woohoo! Those grandkids are pretty smart aren't they? Bad Gramma! Hahaha!ReplyDelete
I laughed when I saw those pics all lined up but I did feel kind of guilty, too!Delete
Congrats to your daughter. Wish I lived in NYC. I would go to see and hear her. If she has come this far in auditions, I'm sure she will do well.ReplyDelete
Too funny about the photos!
I sure hope you are right! She says it has all been worth it for the anticipation and excitement she has had. That's so sweet of you to wish you could go hear her play!Delete
Love the pictures all lined up...yep..gotta love those kids! I will be praying that all goes well for your daughter- how exciting for her! xo DianaReplyDelete
Thanks, Diana. I'll let Katie know she has 'prayer pro' working on it!Delete
Praying the nerves leave once she hits the stage. I know you are very proud of her and miss her and her family. I will try and catch the live stream too. Happy Easter Maureen!! Funny how kids miss nothing.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lisa!I know this is a busy day for everyone and really appreciate that you are going to try.Delete
First: I love that the kids put their pictures back. Awesome. And hooray for Katie -- what a fantastic opportunity. Prayers on their way.ReplyDelete
They probably think I'm senile and they have to help me out with these things. Thanks for the prayers. It's almost show time and I'm sure I'm more nervous than she is!Delete
Hi Maureen...Thank you for your lovely comment on my post...Have a great Easter!!! xx RaniReplyDelete
Sounds like good family time on Easter, and congrats to your daughter in NYC. Look forward to hearing how it went for her.
Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments,
I am thrilled for Katie. I am watching Adele on DVD right now perform at the Royal Albert Theatre in London so dreams do come true. Her British accent is so strong I have difficulty understanding her. I hope your Easter was lovely. I just read your comment on Lemon Lane and books are and have been a passion of mine since I was a wee girl. My daughter asked me if I could choose between coffee and books which would I give up. Coffee would go.ReplyDelete
Too funny on the picture hint. I hope your daughter makes it "big". It's wonderful she is following her dream!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kim. Katie is having a blast and finds NYC so energizing for her songwriting. Well, really, who wouldn't find that city exciting?Delete
I love that not so subtle hint, lol. Kids are too cute. How exciting for your daughter. I hope all of her dreams come true.ReplyDelete
I think the subtle part was not telling me they were correcting the situation! lol Thanks for the good wishes!Delete
