Good lovely morning!
Taking 10 to tidy up work spaces after a great half hour of yoga. My room is small, but well organized. Just need pick up scattered sheet music, fold a pile of laundry to stuff into drawers, then add some tissues dotted with drops of lavender. Love the fresh scent! The day can begin.
Taking stock from yesterday:
Ah... days are getting longer, hours of the day don't.. so here's another tweak in this journey: Go to bed earlier, get up earlier, although I am already an early bird. As a morning person, I get so much more done, so it's time to buckle up once again. Estimation:
~ Coffee (30)
~ Yoga (30)
~ Blog beginnings (45)
~ Breakfast (30)
~ Vocal exercises (15-20)
~ Blog continued (maybe switch this one with Vocal exercises or I lose momentum..)
~ Grandchickens & Cockatiel care (30-45)
~ Blog continued (?)
~ Song choice of the day! (60 or more)
~ Piano practice... I still struggle with this, as it requires lots of focus & energy, but... 1000 hours. (120)
Somewhere in between or thereafter one needs to prepare meals, care for the sprout trays, put a log on the fire (thanks Jeff for bringing in the fuel wood every day:) and do other tasks like banking and music administration.
ARE THERE ANY MORE HOURS LEFT IN THE DAY??!
Music administration yesterday took a while, as I finally uploaded all 10 Solitude wav tracks via our sloth internet system, to an email to the CBC music library (yes!), 2 years late... I just couldn't come up with the will and energy... But better late than never. Art work, credit & bio went along and it actually mailed out swiftly! I was surprised that it even sent, given thee largeness of thee attached files. Thanks google (grudgingly..).
Today I would like to introduce to you one very inspirational woman and friend in my life: Zaynab Wilson.
