Now that I have finished getting my points for the day, I noticed that I did not get any e-mails from Sparkpeople's coaches. No recipes, polls or articles. Hmmmmmmmmmm I wonder did anyone else miss them or was it just me.
Well this morning I went to Curves, thinking we were going to get another dumping of snow. We never did we just got what we got over the night time, and the roads were clear but slushy.
I came home and spent time reading and doing e-mails. I made plane reservations for a June visit my sister who lives in Franklin NC. I will fly into Asheville N.C. We plan to stay at a bed and breakfast or maybe just a motel and see the town and then travel to Franklin which is in the mountains. I am looking forward to sister time, just the two of us. She has some neat friends some which I have met and others who I will meet. My sister is a jewellery artist and does lots of creations which I proudly wear.
My dh asked me to make a noodle and beef recipe that I haven't made in a very long time, so that's what I did. So we have enough for two meals.
I had a conference call tonite which didn't last too long, because I wanted to watch "The Bachelor". I taped it and watched it in its entirety. I can't wait til next week when he picks his future wife. I hope he picks Tenley, but I have a feeling that he will pick Vienna. She is more adventurous. Tenley is more his type and more mature. But in the end its his choice.
When I am finished I will read and try to finish "The Piano Teacher". Its a story about the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong during WW II. A bitter story, but interesting characters involved.

This afternoon we picked up our friends and went to hear The Milwaukee Jewish Community Chorale in concert with Dennis Janzer. She and I are co-Presidents of the Chorale so our dh went along for the concert too.
The Milwaukee Jewish C0ommunity Chorale is a volunteer choir that first performed in 1994 for the celebration honoring Milwaukee Jewry's 150th Anniversary. It has since become known as a provider of Jewish music to Wisconsin's myriad communities. They have performed in New York City, Chicago Illinois and Israel.
They sang two pieces that Dennis Janzer wrote for Organ and Choir. They were "Celebrate and Sing" and "Who Shall Ascend - Psalm 24".
Dennis Janzer is an award-winning composer with a Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA) in Composition from the University of Miami. He also holds other degrees, including a Masters of Science in Bio-medical Engineering from Marquette University as well as a Master of Fine Arts in Theory/Composition from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. An annual recipient of ASCAP awards, Dr. Janzer is active as a composer and performer, with compositions that range from organ miniatures to large symphonic works. A number of his new compositions involving organ student instruction are used at the American Guild of Organist's Pipe Organ Encounters.
This event was an outstanding opportunity for the Milwaukee Jewish Community Chorale and Dennis Janzer to perform together at St. Joseph Center Chapel. The MacDowell Club of Milwaukee hosted the program.
Dennis remarked to the Chorale Director, after the performance, that this performance of his music, by the Chorale, was the best he had ever heard done.
Other Organists also performed this afternoon, which included several instrumental solos by a flutist, trumpet and clarinet player. There was also a piece by two organists, which is very unusual, because you rarely have two hugh organs in the same location.
After the performance a group of us (nine) went to Paul's Omega restaurant which I had been to last week, with my friend, when I took her to the airport. This time I was accompanied by my dh who had his pork chop. I had my Greek Salad once again and ate my 2.4 oz roll. This time I stopped at one and didn't take any home.
It was a very nice day and now I will watch a little TV and read "The Piano Teacher" which I need to have finished by next week for my book club.

Just a lazy day in the Neubauer's household.
