This is the first time I can remember a truly cold all-day rainy day since I moved to Denver. Brrrrr!!
And that’s about how far Miss Priss wanted to go. What can I say? She got it from her mama. Who got it from living in the Dominican Republic where they believe getting hit by a raindrop will cause immediate illness. Or will at least mess up your beautiful, straight hair.
The dogs and their muddy paws always have to IMMEDIATELY rush out of confinement after I teach a piano lesson to survey the premises. They’re very diligent. If they’re lucky, they might catch a glimpse of a student getting into a car.
Okay, so it was 90% piano books for my students!! I’ve been ordering nearly every day after I’m contacted by new parents/students! I would have run out of the adult books, but one student had to reschedule. They’re so spoiled that I order their books for them with Amazon Prime! They’re much cheaper. But I get the perk of daily deliveries! But I did get myself a little something. I was still feeling the birthday sense of entitlement!
Copland Ballet Music + the Atkins Baking Mix I keep seeing on all the blogs. Waffles & pancakes, here I come!!! When the sun finally came out – sort of – I HAD to get Pippa out of the house. I had another piano student coming and unexercised, cooped up dogs are obnoxious!!
Sadly the occasion called for a jacket with a hood and thumbholes! I need some bright winter workout wear this year. The black just makes it more depressing!! And I’ll be outside way more this year with Pippa Cordelia in tow!!! In the cauldron for dinner tonight:
Kath’s Nutty Vanilla & Sweet Potato Soup – minus the nuts. I don’t have any. I had something else planned for tonight, but when I saw the weather — soup was a must!! I’m clocking out early because I have yet to hit the gym to do my fitmixer boot camp workout and after that I want to spend some QT with Kevin discussing vacation plans. And by vacation plans, I mean possibly leaving our zip code for more than one night to somewhere that’s not Minnesota. We aim high. Preferably somewhere we can take our little bundles of fur. And not too outdoorsy. Any suggestions? I’m leaning towards somewhere I can run a half-marathon while I’m there.
What’s the next vacation or mini vacation you have planned? Somewhere close. For like a long weekend in mid-October. Can’t wait!!!
Does it rain a lot where you live? My feet are so cold!!
