Yup, it is 10 days until the big day. I have to send my brother his presents because I can't send the cello and the guitar, so I am getting gift certificates instead. It is just impossible to send them as they cost so much to send. Unless he sends me the money, which I haven't heard from him yet, I won't be sending them. I can give them the instruments at any time. Ooh, be right back, I need to get instruments out of the trunk of the car right now. There, I am back, it is done. I will check them over to make sure they are okay in a bit when I move them to the living room before Alyssa's lesson.
I was supposed to have 3 lessons but Dawson's Mom got called in to work out of town and she leaves bright and early tomorrow and her husband is in Chicago, so she wants a make up next week. Works for me. We can do a make up at the end of the week if she would like. He is such a good kid. Very nice and polite, he is a pretty good piano player too. I have a new one starting in January for voice, if I haven't already mentioned it. I am excited about that. So that would bring the total up of students. Most of the students are doing pretty well. The concert went well and everyone did a good job. The concert was about 45 minutes long and then we had a nice reception in the social hall. I enjoyed having the concert there. It was nice and everyone fit beautifully. We had it at Heather B-T's church as mine is never available these days. I was thankful it was available for the little Momma's funeral. Of course, that was in the morning and even church activities don't usually start early Saturday Morning. The luncheon afterward was really good too.
I have a blood test tomorrow. I can't forget about it because I sort of forgot about the one 2 weeks ago, oops! So, yeah, I have to go tomorrow.
I have a new ornament for me tree, a baby grand piano ornament. It is simply beautiful. It is sitting on the princess table. I have to get a tree skirt for the tree, I haven't done that yet. I keep forgetting to go to the store for it. I will do that tomorrow then. I want to get a few more ornaments to paint too. I find painting very soothing and relaxing. I hope they are on sale. I want to get a new box too to paint. I want to put my hair ties in it as I don't have any drawers in the bathroom for stuff like that. I can make the boxes waterproof too so that is good, but one for my hair clips and ties would be good. I want one for my make-up too. I do actually have make up, I just don't wear it too much anymore. When I go out somewhere nice I usually put some on. When Richard took me to dinner I put a bit on. Big brother doesn't like it though when I wear a lot, it is kind of funny but that is what big brothers are all about.
I am cooking a beef roast in the crock pot. It should be done by the time Alyssa's lesson is over. I thought it would be done by now, but I forgot to plug it in when I first put it in. How silly can a person be? Obviously, very silly.
Overall, a pretty good day. I have a bad headache today, but it isn't as bad as it can get. Everything else is normal pain level. It is a bit sunny here so it seems warmer than it is. I think I am used to the weather now, when I went to get the instruments, I didn't put a coat on, I just ran (well, walked fast) outside and grabbed them. I should have uncovered the trunk first but I did. Oh well, It will be okay. I can take care of that later.
I do hope this finds you doing well!
