For some reason, a few days to a week before a show I’m really looking forward to, I end up coming down with a cold or something similar. Sure enough, next Saturday, I’m the opening act, and I’ve really been working hard to knock it out of the park. This morning, I sound more like sandpaper than singer, so it’s been a day of medicating, resting, and wishful thinking.
Luckily, I still have 5 days to shake it, and I’ve been working on this performance well in advance, so a few days of rehearsing with just mouthing the words shouldn’t hurt, though it might look silly being all focused on returning to the mic for vocals or harmonica parts that aren’t there.
Anyway, aside from work, soup, medicine, and rest, I’ll be putting together my plans for the coming farmers market season. I’m returning to Huron Valley’s market quite a bit this summer, so I’m planning a variety of balanced sets that I can switch up, and avoid boring the vendors week after week.
Despite the yuck I’m dealing with, I’m ever so thankful that the weather has turned, and the grass is returning to a lush green once more. Trees are budding, flowers are in bloom, and most importantly, I’m no longer in layers to stay warm at work.
Have a great week!
