Short post, not much time:

Weekend involved no riding, lots of classical music.

Saw Mozart's "The Abduction from the Seraglio" on Friday. VSO put it on as a "concert opera", which means an orchestra, choir, and full cast, but no sets, props or costumes, and the orchestra is on stage. Which is fun, because it means you have the singers using the conductor's stand as stage centre.

Unfortunately, The Lovely One was a little under the weather, and we left at intermission after 2/3 of the concert. She was still feeling ill Saturday night, so she missed a marathon performance by the Vancouver Welsh Men's Choir (part of the Champagne Concert Series I help put on). They're just great. They did everything from Canadian folksongs to spirituals.

In between the two concerts, I spent a lot of time chipping wood in Mom & Dad's backyard.

Sunday, a bit of shopping, a bit of cleaning, and then I made a pineapple upside-down cake. The Lovely One pronounced it good.

Technically, given that we didn't eat after 2:00 except for the cake, I guess the cake was dinner.

Pictures of the cake to follow soon.
