Those beautiful magenta flowers are sugar snap pea blossoms arranged in a mason jar. My voice student's mother so thoughtfully gave them to me at her daughter's lesson yesterday. The candy dish (a Lenox piece given to us as a wedding gift) contains the remainder of the Easter candy, which I am doing my part to consume. And I finally printed a bunch of new family pictures to plaster all over the place. Only took me about a month!
Been doing a lot of this lately, teaching five piano students, a voice student and a hybrid voice-piano student (my ever-so-talented littlest sister Emma). That makes seven students in all, eight if you include the sporadic lessons I give to Bubby. It keeps me busy but I love it. I get to bless people with the wonderful gift of music and I get paid to do it. Pretty sweet gig, methinks.
After seeing The Hunger Games and being floored by its excellence, I have decided to re-read the entire trilogy. Blazing through Mockingjay now. And oh, those flowers are fake, just in case you were wondering. And the placemats? A little over a dollar a piece, on clearance at Target.
This is a masterpiece created by Bubby a few months ago in preschool. She says, "It's a rainbow surrounded by storms." That it is. It hangs on my fridge while the vigilant Lego Buzz Lightyear keeps watch. Hasn't gone anywhere since January so I guess that means he takes his job seriously. Either that, or I can't bear to part with my child's artwork. I'll let you decide.
