What a day!!! After spending some time reading some of the posts I am following, I follow some pretty amazing people!! I love reading other people's blog and about their lives, I love reading crafty blogs, and the amazingly cool stuff they create, I just love learning about other people. It makes me rather happy.

Mom is in the living room for her daily rest. I put her right in when we came home from the usual because when I asked her if she wanted to rest she said yes. It was a bit earlier than usual, but that is okay, if Mom is tired, then I will have her rest. No need to wait until "rest time". I only have 2 lessons today. 1 is a make up from Saturday, and the other is a regularly scheduled lesson. Both Frank and Calli are at either camping with family or band camp, so they are both absent. I can't wait until next week to hear all about Calli's time at camp and how Frank did with his first year of band camp. I remember band camps and I loved it even though it was so hot on the football field. It is a rather quiet week because Charlie, also, has band camp so he won't have his lesson this week either. But that is okay because I plan to get so craft stuff from down stairs and start on some Christmas projects. I also am going to go and get a memory card for my digital camera so that I can take pictures of the painted violins and violas for the giveaway this month. I am giving away 2 violins or violas and the rest I am going to sell at a place near here. I really loved painting and I plan to paint a couple of signs for mine and Mom's bedroom doors.

Well, I am now done with teaching for the day. Aggie had her lesson and so did Bob. Both are doing well. Aggie finished 2 pieces and started a new one. As it turns out, I don't have the classical piece she wanted. We thought I did, but I don't. I checked my catalogue and it isn't listed. I have all my music catalogued and boy, does it make it easier to check for music. Bob is working on a 2 part invention from Bach and a Sonata (K545) from Mozart. He has just started both pieces a couple of weeks ago.

Mom was a bit talkative during Bob's lesson. I don't like when she does that, but I also can't really tell her to be quiet because she doesn't understand so I end up sometimes just nodding at her and then going back to the lesson. Fortunately, Bob is VERY understanding about Mom and doesn't mind. She wasn't that talkative, just a bit. I was able to get her to sit down and listen near the end. I was glad of that, but still, it is annoying when she does this. She has been more talkative this last week than before. She even tried to tease Bob, but we were talking so he didn't hear her. She didn't know that though so she didn't get upset when he didn't answer.

It is really hot and humid out today so I am not feeling super well. I can't say anything in particular hurts more, I just don't feel too well all over. I have a feeling we will be going to bed rather early tonight. My breathing is a bit harder today. It is supposed to be hot and humid with thunderstorms for the next couple of days. Thank goodness it is finally August when is should cool down soon. I hope you are doing alright!


  1. I am assuming from the name of your blog that you have fibermyalgia... (I dont spell real well shhh!) I am sorry to hear that. It also sounds as if you make the best of it and I have a lot of respect for that. I have a friend that has the same illness and I am sorry to say that I can not say the same for her. I think that I will point her towards your blog for a bit of inspiration.

    I came by your blog to introduce myself. My name is Sherry and I am a new Bloggerette Sorority Sister. I have only been blogging for 3 weeks so I missed the rush, but I look forward in joining in on the events to come. I would be honored if you came by for a visit at Hope to see you there!

    Take Care~ Sherry
