Hello, everyone. This will be short and sweet as I arose at 3:30 this morning and can’t think straight. My eyes sting and feel like sandpaper. It’s only 4 pm (5 pm back at home) and I’m wondering how I’m going to stay awake until a decent hour. I don’t want to go to bed too early or I will wake up in the middle of the night.
I managed to find my way to the condo I’m staying in without any trouble. According to the company manager this condo is much nicer than most of the company accomodations. I certainly lucked out! It looks out on a golf course and is open and airy. For over half the time I’m here, I will have it to myself. For the last 3 weeks, I’ll share it with the guy who is composing music for Blithe Spirit. He’ll have the downstairs area to himself – my bedroom is upstairs along with the kitchen and living room.
On the way home from the airport, we stopped at a grocery store so I now have enough food on hand to get me through the week. Unfortunately, the cook of the family is Don. Shouldn’t he be here to cook for me? Here’s some photos of the condo:
And the view. I’ve seen lots of golfers out this afternoon.
I’m grateful for my lovely apartment. Now I wait. Tuesday is the first day of rehearsals. There are a couple of events on Monday night. Unlike San Diego, a place where I had lived and worked and knew very well, this is all new to me. We’re out in the country. I’m feeling homesick. 7 weeks sure seems like a long, long time.
