Spring has Sprung! 3-22

I think Monday was the official First Day of Spring but we have had spring-like weather for weeks now.  I am loving every minute of the day with that spring-like weather.  The sun was shining, the sky was a blue, blue, blue, and the clouds were white puffs of cotton.  It has just been a week of wonderful weather.  I am more tired when I wake up but I perk after about an hour.  Tomorrow I will be getting up a bit early because my Katie is coming to pick up some music for the scholarship competition.  Breanna is going to do the competition also.  Carolyn, I think, is not.  That is okay.  I have also asked if the woman who is in charge if she can accompany my 2 students as I don't accompany.  She is very nice.  Her name is Bea.  Bea did a great job accompanying Katie and Rachel last year.  I sure hope Breanna and Katie will do well.  Katie has picked her two songs.  She will sing her German Song and "Rest Sweet Nymphs", an old English Song.  Breanna is not sure what she is going to sing.  I know one of them will be "Caro Mio Ben".  She likes that Italian song a lot.  The English one, we are not sure about yet.  She has sung some lovely English Songs in the past year.  We both agreed it would be best if she sung a song we have already finished since the audition is just around the corner.  It ill be nice to see Katie tomorrow since I haven't seen her since Christmas time.

Jillian, Brooke, and Aubrey all had their lessons tonight.  They are so cute.  Jillian and Brooke are 5. They were so excited to get new books this week.  They just finished the level A book and are now in level B.  I am so proud of them and their sister.  Aubrey will finish her level 1A in a few weeks.  The smiles they give are so lovely.  The girls are so excited to learn.  It is wonderful to teach children who are so excited about learning piano.  I look forward to their lessons every week.

So far, the spring concert line up is really shaping up.  Allison picked her song today.  She will sing "Candle on the Water" from Pete's Dragon.  I don't remember the movie but I do know I have probably seen it since we have seen a lot of the Disney movies thanks to Mom.

Friday I will be meeting my friend, Heather B-T for lunch and tea at her house.  I just want to have some fun down time with another adult.  I love being around my students, but sometimes I need to speak with adults.  It is just one of those times.  I don't have anything in particular to talk about, I just want to have a nice afternoon talking to her.  It should be a nice afternoon.

I am tired now.  I think I will read my book for a bit and then head to bed.  I am reading Danielle Steel's book, Rogue.  It is good so far but I think I have read it before.  I can't remember but parts sound vaguely familiar to me.  I will then continue to re-read the Anne of Green Gables books starting with the Anne of Avonlea book.  i love those books so much.  She is my favorite author of all time.  I have a bit more of headache than usual tonight.  I hope it goes back to normal soon.

  1. I know what you mean about not being able to start moving well for an hour after getting up. Lately I find it takes a little longer and am sure it's the weather...too many changes this year keeps my pain level up...hope you have a nice lunch with Heather B T....and a gentle hug and prayers sent your way my friend.
