The current Sunday Stealing is again from Stolen from League of Extraordinary penpals. It addresses plans for June and other things.
It started busy. On June 2, I went to TWO art shows taking place simultaneously for First Friday. Art at APL is at the Pine Hills branch of the library, while my church had art, plus music by the Albany Gay Men’s Chorus. Fortunately, they were the #10 Western Avenue bus away from each other.
On June 3, I attended Pinkster at the Schuyler mansion. It is “a distinctly African celebration through which enslaved and free Africans maintained familial & community ties, traditions, and connections to African culture.
In the future: Help find book reviewers for the FFAPL Tuesday noon talks, working on the Underground Railroad Center’s July 4 event. Give blood this week. Visit another church congregation for a shared picnic. And probably participate in another choir funeral. I’m never bereft of tasks.
To get through the DVR before September. It’s currently 72% full. I record more than I watch and sometimes give up on programs. Still, I want to see those episodes of Finding Your Roots.
No. More than that, Stormy the cat eats plants and then gets sick, so that’s a non-starter.
Physically? Emotionally? I eat oatmeal with blueberries, strawberries, and bananas most days. I listen to music., currently the San Francisco Days CD by Chris Isaak. Listen to Solitary Man. BTW, I was listening to the Brazilian drummers at Pinkster, and I recognized a particular rhythm played on The Obvious Child by Paul Simon, about 3/4 of the way through.
Sometimes it’s ravens. The neighborhood cats like our backyard.
Having nothing to do with football
Work on genealogy. BTW, I just discovered another ancestor this week. I was looking for my mother’s father’s mother, which was a dead end. BUT I found my mother’s father’s father’s parents. Daniel Williams and Sarah Benson had six kids, the eldest three born in Canada.
The UREC 4th of July. Olin family reunion.
Corn on the cob, which I’ve already had.
Optimally two weeks, but it doesn’t always work out that way, especially since my wife is still working.
It’s less COVIDy. For most of last year, Albany County had moderate COVID transmission. Since April 2023, it’s been low transmission. This is huge, especially for congregational singing.
Brandishing a weapon
My hay fever doesn’t bother me, then.
Listen to music and read.
