Stupid title but at least it sounds positive, yes?
So we're at Wednesday now, are we? Oh to have it be Friday! Wishing my life away one work day at a time. Wish I could just stay home but alas, that just isn't going to happen unless I lose my job. We have decided to give Jordan and Jayda piano lessons. Start them young and they will have something that I hope both of them love. We gave them the piano I found for $25. I talked to the piano tuner guy and he expressed concerns about a $25 piano. No chips on the keys, every key works, and the body is pretty good too. The antique store said they priced it to move so they could have the floor space and it had been there a while. It was tucked back in a corner of a furniture room.
Anyway, piano tuner coming to Lee's on Tuesday and girls start their lessons on Thursday (both of next week). The girls are excited and that makes me so happy!! Jessie wasn't interested in Darren learning to play piano. But I did find out that they have a music program at the school where the girls will have their lessons for kids as young as 6 mos. old! Oakley is now 18 mos. old (well, in a week) and I'm going to see what the program entails and if Jessie would be interested in that for Oakley. It could be fun.
Was trying to figure out how to do a sound byte for Celeste with the harp playing...plinking. Couldn't figure it out so guess a video is next best option. Michael has to leave early today for work but I'll have him take a short one next time I practice (well, after today, I mean). Hopefully he can do it without getting much of me in there. And I have to warn you all that I have probably some of the ugliest hands on the planet. No exaggeration there.
Still haven't worked on the painting since Monday a.m. and I know I won't until the weekend. No plans this weekend (yay!) so with any luck or at least more fortitude on my part, it will be finished this weekend. I'll never be a master, that is for sure. Oy.
Finished the perspective book and sent my final project for that book in a couple of days ago. Still had some pages to read and I have kind of a reference notebook going with drawings and short bits of notes. I am just so darned rigid! I would like to say that just doesn't fly with an artist wannabe. But since I am one (an artist wannabe, that is), it must. Anyway, next book in the course is Basic Drawing. Would that it helps me.
I am a walking version of mediocrity. Sigh... Big thoughts always though. Look where those have gotten me!! LOL
