The last few days have been kind of hectic… more later.
First of all, I want to say that I had a good Easter weekend. On Saturday, I colored eggs. I used “natural substances” like tea, cherry juice and spinach. The eggs didn’t turn out very colorful, but they still looked very nice.
I also baked a “Hefezopf” [a braided sweet white bread] which my family traditionally eats on Easter Sunday for breakfast – and also very much likes it any other Sunday as well :)
I took all the goodies to Ventura on Sunday and shared it with J’s family. We had lunch with his parents and his Granddad and Great-Uncle at the nursing home. It was fun and a very special time especially for J’s Granddad and Great-Uncle [who are both over 90 years of age].
We spent some more time at J’s parents’ house and got to meet the cat that has been living in their backyard for the last couple of weeks. J called her “Lily” and I wish I could have taken her home. She’s a total sweetheart and so pretty :)
This week has been A LOT of talking about the band. Decisions have to be made about the recordings that they want to put on tape in the coming weeks and I might be a big part of that, because I am going to do a lot of the recording. As long as they’re not signed, I might as well function as their director, camera [wo]man and PR manager all at the same time :) I know that they must be very consumed by what might happen in the coming months and I definitely wouldn’t want to be in their shoes pressure-wise. I admire them, especially J, for their strength and commitment to this band project, because I would never want to expose myself to public opinion as musicians have to do all the time.
I hope you’ll all help to make this happen and as soon as there is something online, I’ll provide you with the links and you can spread the word ;)
Today, we’re going to go to a very famous guitar store in Venice and the guys will pick out an electric guitar which will be hand-build for them in the next couple of weeks. Very famous rock musicians have had the instruments made at the very store I am talking about. This is exciting.
