I've made a list of things to do while I have the house to myself: clean up my room, make and send postcards, pack for my upcoming weekend trip, and, you know, I have that 101 in 1,001 list, too. I was a little concerned as I watched myself have another lazy morning the next day, but, at least I was eating really healthily. Breakfast was two clementines and a banana. Second breakfast was an organic waffle with peanut butter and warmed blackberry syrup. Next came tea, and then a strawberry banana smoothie and some True North nut clusters for lunch.
Still, it would be a crime to not do anything productive during these two days of solitude, and so, I have sat myself down at the piano, and I have written out the first minute and a half of Calliope Meets Frank, I have written and sent 4 postcards, and I have learned how to tie a Half Windsor tie on myself and on the banister who pretended to be a dude for me. I've also done some laundry, but my list of things to do isn't finished. I have plans of cranking up some Passion Pit via Pandora as I tackle the clutter in my room, and there's exercise that needs doing, too.
The weather is completely wonderful outside. 76 and sunny. I've had the windows and the doors open, and I've enjoyed every second of it. I realized today, though, that I may have some allergies. Yesterday morning, I woke up with a cough and stuffy nose. Today was a bit worse. I don't feel sick, but my throat itches, and my voice it super low. (I checked this morning: I hit the second A flat below middle C. My range is three octaves and a sixth today! But, it really hurts to hit that high F.)
If you find yourself wanting to practice your ear training or you just want some blank sheet music, this is the best place I've found for it: BlankSheetMusic.net It allows you to choose how many staves are on the page, what clefs you have, etc. My new favorite for sure.
Enjoy your weekend, friends! Do things you love!
