Ellie Holcomb’s As Sure as the Sun.
~such a beautiful mix of scripture written into music. Her voice is so cool! I just love this album!
Crowder’s Neon Steeple
~ I am really enjoying this mix of country and modern music. I have been listening to it almost non-stop! We even jived to it while we were spring cleaning this week!
yes, I know, I already mentioned it but CINDERELLA was UH-mazing! I cried and laughed and was breathless with delight. I have even heard tell of men crying!
Yup, still chugging away at
Les Miserables: Such a beautiful tale! I must say though, Victor Hugo is the master of philosophical, poetical, and historical rabbit trails. I must confess though I did only skim some of Grantaire’s monologues. When that guy drinks some wine he can talk quite the blue streak!
My sewing machine. . . we have been almost inseparable these past few weeks. I had an outside job that I have been working on for someone, and I have been sewing a lot. . . skirts, and even a dress. . . more on that later.
These Fabulous pumps that I got for $5.00! SCORE! I don’t know where I am going to wear them. . . but they were $5!
Notebooks: I know, silly, but my brain does not retain a lot when it has a lot flying around in it. My secret weapon has become writing down whatever important fact I think of when I think of it so I don’t forget it. I have 2 little notebooks lying around. One is for random things (aka, what I need to do on the computer, things I need from Hobby Lobby, measurements, and other random notes) and the second is for literary things. Story ideas, plot points for my novel, quotes, and other such things.
And. . . last but definitely not least, The dress that I made myself. here is a sneak peak. I have never made a dress before, (well, not really) And I am so pleased as punch, I literally squealed like a little girl and jumped up and down, when I tried it on. You can see my excitement in the picture.
Today, I took a test in piano. They test me in four different areas of music. Performance, Aural awareness(aka listening), Technic and sight reading, and Theory. When I went in for my test, the judicator asked me how I was. I said fine, but felt like saying like Anne of Green Gables. “Well in body, but considerably rumpled in spirit thank you” Thankfully I felt like I did an good job. Performance, ( my favorite part, I was blessed to be able to play on a Steinway Grand piano! Eek! I was in heaven and would loved to have done it over again for the pure joy of playing on such a marvelous instrument. I literally feel like I played it better on that piano than I did on our Keyboard.
Well, anyway, what are some of your favorite things this month?
