Long time no blog

I’m back! And akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! (Happy New Year!) It has snowed several times since the last entry, and rained, and then snowed some more! So far, we’ve been a couple of weeks with no rain, which is fantastic! It’s even been quite cold for a few days.

In the weeks and weeks and weeks since the last entry, Sari and I traveled to New Brunswick for Christmas, celebrated a few birthdays, performed with the Seasons Baroque Ensemble, settled Catan extensively, and generally had a silly and jolly time.

The concerts with Seasons included shows in St. Andrews and Saint John this time. These went very well, and we had a great turnout, especially considering the new venues. Everyone seemed very enthusiastic, so we’re looking forward to the next shows!

The next performance put on by Early Music Fredericton will be a series of solo harpsichord recitals that I’m playing. Friday, March 9 will be in St. Andrews, Saturday the 10th in Saint John, and then Sunday afternoon in Fredericton. More details to come on those concerts! Watch this space!

In other exciting news, I’m no longer a regular McGill employee. My last day working at the venerable help desk at ICS Customer Support was last Thursday. It’s been a long time – after five and a half years, I was, except for Mary-Ann, the most senior employee there, including all the managers, etc. It was time to go though – I have more than enough work these days with other web work and programming and all the music work, so it was time for a change!

Unfortunately, I have a cold. I’ve been treating my symptoms by staying in bed for most of the past three days (medicinal laziness?). I think I’m on the mend, but it’s slow going. One nice part of working from home though is that I can stay in bed in my pyjamas all day long, and actually get a whole lot done!
