So to catch up…
On Monday evening, I went to my cello lesson. My teacher is very patient…he knows that I’m not purposefully hurting his ears!
Last night, Joe and I went to Tang Soo Do class. (Another patient teacher!) He showed us some wrestling things, in addition to a good warm up, and working on our forms and one-steps. He keeps things interesting by teaching us things from a lot of different martial arts: jiu-jitsu, krav maga, escrima, bo staffs…we did some tai chi last week.
This evening, I practiced cello, and now I’m checking in with you.
Thanks for all the nice comments and likes!
I’m staring at a pile of paper next to the laptop here, trying to forget that I still need to do the stupid taxes. Blah…
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It was a beautiful sunny day. The boys and I raked leaves and cut grass this morning. I practiced cello for a while earlier (see picture below)…need to do some more.
I also need to order a couple of Tang Soo Do books, that show the forms and one-steps. I can’t remember things from one class to the next. That’s the downside of martial arts for the “more seasoned”!
We went to a Puerto Rican restaurant this evening. Really good! I practiced the cello before dinner, and I’ll practice some more later. I didn’t have cello class this week, so I want to practice as much as I can, to keep from falling behind.
The library book I’m reading right now, “Notes from a Small Island” by Bill Bryson, is pretty funny. You should read it!
No cello lesson this evening, so I’m trying to double up on the practice. So far, I’ve worked on Concert Song, The Guiding Hand, and London Bridge. Yes, THAT London Bridge, the one that’s falling down. I can almost play it right, too!
