A cloudy but rested Saturday
Well I guess I skipped a day in here. Yesterday was a draggin' ass day, meaning I didn't sleep very well Thursday night. Had a gig last night, which went fairly well. The lack of sleep didn't bother me until after the gig, but then I was done. As in "stick a fork in me, I'm done".
This makes two draggin' ass days for the month of December. Fortunately they've been one-day affairs, so a good night's sleep was attained the following night.
Feeling fine today. A very little tossing and turning, and the next thing I knew it was 7:30am. Roughly seven hours of shuteye. Always refreshing to have a good night follow a shitty one. You feel that much better.
Another gig tomorrow, 1 to 4. And then another one, for just an hour, on the 23rd. That's my 'busy patch' this year. I can remember doing 9 gigs in the month of December.
The playing is almost always fun. Playing out, though, seems to be something I'm doing less and less of. Schlepping your stuff from your vehicle to the site, setting up, doing the job, then schlepping your stuff back to your vehicle to then schlep back into the house. Noise and crowds and a lot of schlepping.
One of those jobs you've got to love. At this point, I just sorta like it. So fewer dots on the calendar- but more fun doing them. I'm turning into a homebody musician..
Well thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. That's all I've got for this partly cloudy(but rested)Saturday. One new post on YouTube: In Walked Bud. More later.
