Catching Up

So, it’s been a month since my last blog post. I’m pretty sure I blinked and September was basically over.  So what have I been up to for the past several weeks?  

Well, September started with a visit from my three best college friends!  They came up to Lancaster for Labor Day weekend for the Zac Brown Band concert at Hershey.  Their trip to PA wouldn’t have been complete with a trip to Intercourse, PA, and a drive through Amish country to go horse and buggy spotting.

The following weekend was the first performance weekend for the Symphony at The Fulton Opera House in downtown Lancaster.  This concert featured a premier of Goulet’s Chocolats Symphonique which is a piece, in four movements, where each movement corresponds to a specific flavor of chocolate. (Think wine and cheese pairing, but for chocolate and music).  Each guest  received a pack of chocolates as they entered the theater that they were encouraged to eat as the piece played.

Then the next weekend, the Symphony switched gears and venues, and had our first concert of a new Pops series.  This concert featured pieces of movie scores like Star Wars, Frozen, and The Wizard of Oz.

And suddenly, it was fall in Lancaster!  Road side stands were advertising apples by the bushel and the temperatures dropped to a wonderful 65 degrees.  So my mom and I took it upon ourselves to start off our fall with a little canning of applesauce.  We canned twelve pints last weekend, and we’ll be making a few more pints for immediate eating next weekend!

And somewhere in between all of that work, I’ve neglected blogging and social media big time!  This weekend I’m headed down to Sweet Briar for Founder’s Day Weekend…but hopefully after that I’ll get back into the groove of blogging!

What have y’all been up to?
