Joel gets back from his University interview today. He felt it went really well. Yesterday he had breakfast with the search committee, a tour of the campus, gave a lecture on Berlioz (what else?) to 12 of the music faculty, conducted Brahms' Haydn Variations with the orchestra, had a Q&A session with students, ate lunch with the search committee, met with the music chair and the dean of the college, had a more formal meeting with the search committee, and finally, was given a tour of the city. Phewsh! It was an all day affair! I suppose we'll find out whether or not he got the job in the next week or so.
The bug Chloe had last time I wrote has made its rounds through our family, and I think we're all healthy now. It seems to last only 24 hours, thank goodness...but it lasted for 5 or 6 days as it spread through everyone.
So, on to our summer, even though the weather still refuses to cooperate. I will be picking Joel up at the airport in SLC this afternoon and then we will head back down to Cedar. Joel begins rehearsals for the Utah Shakespearean Festival tomorrow morning (he's playing in the pit for Fiddler on the Roof...we must really love that musical). I'm not really looking forward to my messy house or to starting up Tuacahn again. But I do feel renewed enough to tackle things with a bit more vim and vigor than I have previously had.
