Terry and I tend to go with the flow about things we want to do. I suppose that we do have a couple of things on there...an Alaskan Cruise, going back to Branson, seeing our kids in PA more often...just to name a few.
This summer we went to a friend's wedding. Then in December Terry surprised me and asked me if I wanted to attend our town's production of Handal's Messiah. We went because I had asked him 42 years ago if we could go. He just wasn't interested. The reason he wasn't interested was probably to do with the fact that he is a man of action and likes to watch sports or do something adventurous most of the time.
He saw the story in our newspaper that the performance was coming up and was moved to ask me if I'd like to attend. I said, "Yes!" We sat on the back row with friends. The orchastra was very good and the voices were strong and beautiful. We were glad to have the nice programs to be able to follow along with the words of the songs. (They all came from Scriptures.)
He also asked me if I wanted to see the Nutcracker at Amarillo. I had never been to a professional ballet before. We attended last Sunday afternoon. He made a big deal of Facebook about the possibility of dressing up for the performance. I played along and we had a lot of fun with the postings of our friends. He did wear a nice suit and I wore a black dress with sparkly black bugle beads on it. We cleaned up nicely.
The performance was beautiful and the dancers were skilled. Our grandparent hearts loved the parts that included children dancers and acrobats. Even though the main dancers were flawless in their presentation, we just couldn't get over the cuteness of the little lambs and acrobats. (too cute)
We are not really 'high brow' people, but we appreciate the skill and talent of those who sing, play instruments, and dance with such beauty. Our very next event will be this Sunday watching the children in our church perform their Christmas program. We are looking forward to that.
I'm thinking that our next event after that will be something along the line of a country music concert somewhere close...and then there are the car races...or ballgames...camping...and the list goes on.
