I had a very relaxing day yesterday. I did a lot of reading and even some cooking.
I improvised a black bean hummus since there were no garbanzo beans in the cupboard.
Then I resurrected my old pasta machine to find that it was in bad need of cleaning. This involved soaking overnight. But it put me in the mood and I made some home made pasta using just a knife to cut it.
I have been itching to try the NYT marinara sauce recipe I bookmarked.
It all turned out very well in my opinion.
These are pics I took with my phone and put up on Facebooger. Most comments were envious. One of my choristers, however, thought the pasta looked “funky.” I guess it does. It tasted good however.
For some reason I goofed around with Facebooger and reached out to some people from the past. They were either prominent musician/composers I happen to admire .
Helen Kemp) or people from my time at Wayne State U.
All of these pictured have instantly reached back and allowed me to “friend” them.
This is kind of fun.
I also spent several hours working on the second part of my “Organ 101” fake power point presentation I am planning to give to my organ committee this evening.
I agonized over these few slides. I couldn’t find an illustration of a bunch of ranks that were 8′, 4′ , and 2′.
So I came up with these.
I’ll link in the whole presentation tomorrow.
I have about 17 of 20 or so slides done. It shouldn’t be too difficult to finish that off today.
I have to get my Mom to the shrink this morning at 9 AM. Come to think of it, I haven’t received a confirmation phone call. But I have turned off my land line and that might be the reason. I really should call and confirm before dragging Mom out.
