A Cold Is Coming

I can feel the starting of a cold.  I, of course, am hoping not, however, the sore throat is usually a dead giveaway.  I have cold medicine this time so I don't have to go to the store for some.  I took some and went back for a nap and slept for another 3 hours.  Seriously, I got up at 2 pm and went back to bed at 4.  Yeah, I would say I am not feeling to well.  I do hope this is a short cold because I am not up to a long one, then again, I don't know anyone who would be.

I had planned on taking down the christmas ornaments on the tree today, however, that didn't happen as I am not feeling so hot.  I will do it tomorrow.  No need to rush.  It looks awfully pretty up.  I can always put things away tomorrow or the next day.  I am not in a hurry for this to be done.  I can bring up the boxes tomorrow and then take care of it.

It has been a slow start to the New Year so far, but I wasn't expecting a fast one.  I had lunch with Laura yesterday and I hadn't seen her in 6 months.  The last time Mom and I went to her house for lunch and had a good time.  Mom was having a good day that day so I was thrilled that Laura saw her on a good day.  I am pretty much used to doing things on my own now, including sleeping in the house.  Sometimes, it is so quiet in here.  I can hear my fish tank and that is such a soothing sound for some reason.  It sounds like running water.  I like my fish.  I had thought perhaps I should get a couple more, but I don't know, I like my Cat and Dog fish.

The week will be a usual one for me.  I have paid some bills and will pay a few more.  I have a new student on Saturday starting so that will be the work of the week.  I want to get some music copied for her and a CD for her.  I find that when they are starting out with voice, this is a good way to go.  By law, for educational purposes, I am allowed 1 copy per student and that is what I do.  Because I am not sure of her range, level, or anything at this point, this is the way to go.  Once we get going, then she will need to buy her 3 books that we will use.  I also will be copying music for my other new student on the 18th.  He is an adult male.  I am excited about that too.  Calli is working on some new music that I think she likes.  She is doing very well.  I am pleased with her progress.  She definitely works very hard at her music because the progress she has made is very good.  She has an unusual range for a 10 year old.  She can sing lower than most of them can and has a few high notes most do not.  It makes it really fun to choose music for her because of her range.  Overall, teaching is the highlight of my life and makes me get up in the morning.

I hope 2011 is working miracles for you.  I do hope you had a good day.  Despite the much sleep I had, it has been alright.

  1. A COLD?????? I hope it passes quickly. Dwain and I have had sinus problems for the last few weeks.

    Sounds like your music students are providing you with a lot of fun. :-)
