It's good to no longer work weeknights and Sundays. This evening I'm meeting Cha in Mt. Vernon for the annual lighting of the Washington Monument. The City puts on a pretty raucous fireworks display before turning on the holiday lights--not particularly Christmas-y, but fun nonetheless.
We had an invite to a big soirée planned by some premiere Baltimore event planners, but I'm begging off. That's more Cha's scene than mine--she's taking a co-worker in my place, while I go to the Peabody Conservatory for their annual Christmas concert, which features Renaissance and Medieval holiday music, which I adore.
If I get down there soon enough I can stroll through the Walters Museum show of medieval missals. They also do a wassail--free eats!
